When you are trying to make money through promoting articles and affiliate links, you will need a good, simple, and easy to navigate website to put them on.

There are two ways that you can accomplish this: you can try to do it yourself if you have any web design skills or you can hire someone.

Doing it yourself, unless you were a pro to begin with, can be difficult for some. You will need to read many tutorials and it may take some time to get going. You could also risk having a site that looks very badly made and thrown together.

It is also important (for visitors and search engines) that your site is easy to navigate, which may be a problem if you do not know what you are doing.

Making a Do It Yourself website can be hard, but if you accomplish your goal, maybe you will learn so much that you can write a few articles on it to add to a new DIY niche site!

How to Choose a Web Designer

There are two important things to remember when looking for a web designer:

First, it is important to go with a freelancer if you are looking for a small and simple site. You can probably get one done for $30 to $50. The best places to check are freelancerglobe, getafreelancer or elance, these are the most used freenalcer services online.

There are many freelancing companies on the web that you can tap into to find the designer for you.

Second, it is important that you ask to see a few sample sites that the web designer has done and that you check any ratings that may be available for the designer.

This may keep you from getting wrapped up in a project with someone who will not finish or cannot do the type of job that they claim they can do. I cant stress hwo important this is, as i have been through this many times myself, picking the wrong person or company can end up being very time consuming and money wasting.

If you cannot put together your own website to host your articles on and you don’t want to pay the extra $7 to $12 dollars per month that it may cost to get a host that offers a “what you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) website builder, then your only other option is to hire a web designer.

The good thing is that, if you are looking for a very basic 2-5 page site and you hire a freelancer rather than going with a web design company, then it will be relatively easy on your wallet.
