How I created my website within a day?
Ideas can strike anywhere. Anytime. When put into action, those ideas have the ultimate power to bring in exceptional results.
On a sunny Saturday, while heading to my office at Chirag Delhi from Faridabad. The Eyes focused on the road while mind traveled places. My Yamaha FZ focuses on speed and I prefer on what future holds for me. Bingo! An idea stroke. I enquired myself, Are you not into Digital Marketing?
So why not share your experiences with people who want to learn about your industry. Why not create a website based on something that you love and later on start creating a second source of income from it. I came up with three-four ideas and settled with Digital Marketing.
That was my calling.
But I questioned myself about the following and came across the answers too:
1)How on earth would you do that without writing a line of code?
-Coding is not required to make a good looking website.
2)What is gonna be the cost of starting the website?
-Roughly 600 per month
3)How would you monetize your website in a (long-term)?
-Via Affiliate and Google Advertisement.
After completing the daily office work, I had a whole day ahead. Google Chrome was running out of tabs as I tap my fingers on the fringing keyboard. In an hour of head busting research. I came across the following prerequisites:
