How to make money with a Kwikwap Website
Making money with a Kwikwap Website is no different than making money with any other website.
The main advantages of trying to make money with a Kwikwap Website is the affordable entry level price of the Kwikwap Website as well as a long list of other factors which we will discuss later.
How does one make money with a website? If it were that easy to make money with a Kwikwap website then we would not be selling and designing websites but will be enjoying life on some exotic island. Some Kwikwap website owners are on their way to do exactly just that.
This article will discuss how to make money with a Kwikwap Website.
Supply and demand
The market price of a product or service is always determined by the unseen economic forces of supply and demand. That is why a Medical Specialist or a Senior Advocate charges thousands of rands per hour. It takes years of hard work and money to obtain these specialist qualifications. Few people have the resources or are willing to work so hard to become so valuable.
It is not the Kwikwap Website which makes the money but the underlying product which you are selling which makes the money. There needs to be a demand for the product which you intend to sell.
Focus on popular brands
You can make money selling websites and more specifically selling Kwikwap Websites. Some Kwikwap Web Designers get a fair amount of business from the internet by practising what they preach to clients themselves. They do this by themselves having informative websites with unique content and practising healthy habits such as regular blogging about web design.
Kwikwap Websites are affordable, easy to self manage, have a quick turn around time when being designed. The slogan of Kwikwap being: Quick, Easy and Powerful.
But there are hundreds of people out in the market place who have been designing websites for years.
How does one get your foot in the door to squeeze onto page 1 of Google?
It is simple. You do this by being yourself and by being unique. Kwikwap is a strong growing brand with many people going door to door introducing business owners to the software. Kwikwap consultants like Buddy Web Design and Butterbee Solutions know this and their most important Keywords include the words Kwikwap. So when people search for this popular brand these websites of practising Kwikwap Consultants come up. It is not just a matter of inserting a few Keywords and then expecting to get to page 1 of Google.
No before wondering on making money with your Kwikwap websites you need to be realistic on what you are trying to achieve. Using the example of Butterbee Solutions and Buddy Web Design using the Kwikwap brand name as a clever strategy:
Study these websites and note the content and effort which has been exercised in developing these websites. Over time these websites have also attracted a few quality back links (Other websites linking to their websites.) which is good fro SEO. These websites are also backed by Google My Business pages as well as Facebook Pages. The fact is that Kwiwkap is the product these businesses are selling. By being themselves they found their way to page 1 of Google. There are many web designers all over South Africa. There are less Kwikwap Web Designers all over South Africa.
Making money with your Kwikwap website comes back to the principle of demand and supply determining price. You have to be unique or to be a specialist in the service industry if you want to make money with your Kwikwap Website.
The same applies to making money with a Kwikwap Website when selling products via your website.
There has to be a strong demand for the product you intend on selling or you have to be the sole importer of a product to a region or country.
ThermaveinSA is one such example of where a Kwikwap Website owners is the sole importer and distributor of a product to South Africa. It follows that if there is a demand for this product then this Kwikwap Website will be making money.
How else can one make money with a Kwikwap Website? Some people are under the delusion that it is easy to be the next Bill Gates, Mark Shuttleworth or Mark Zuckerberg on the World Wide Web. These examples included a lot of highly complex coding and programming which only a specialist can do. The did so at the right time as well.
It does sometimes happen by accident. Here is a practical example. One of Buddy Web Designs first clients was a Pakistani importer of Bulk T Shirts to South Africa. This client did not have a good command of the English language. While trying his best to train the Pakistani they ended up typing a few short essays. All in all not more than 1,5 A4 pages of website text. There was the about us text and then there was a paragraph describing Bulk T Shirts and then Bulk Golf Shirts. When the training was done the client gladly paid the R1,500 but when it came time for the debit order the Pakistani protested offering to rather pay commission. Houston we have a problem! Within three weeks the first product enquiries came in and the emails where forwarded to the Pakistani. Whenever there was some political rally organised by the ANC you would see a spike in website hits and then the enquiries followed with emails then being forwarded to the Pakistani. Two months in a row Buddy Web Design received more than R2,000 for simply forwarding a few emails. That after being paid R1,500 for typing less words than this article contains . What is the lesson to be learned from this example? It wasn’t the Kwikwap Website making the money but the uniqueness of the product which was being sold via the website. There are only a few bulk importers of T Shirts in this country and more specifically in Gauteng.
Making money with a Kwikwap Website will always come back to the principle of the law of demand and supply determining price. You need to offer a specialist product or service. Sometimes this happens by accident by more often than not this happens with hard work and determination.
Our next examples deal with exactly just that: hard work and determination. It also deals with uniqueness. So unique is the product and service and so hard the work required before you start making money with your Kwikwap Website that the author willing shares his secrets.
A lot of directories come and go with the people driving these directories thinking they are going to be the next Google. A recent major algorithm update by Google called Pigeon did make local search results more relevant favouring directories a bit more. Updates by Google rarely have a sudden and dramatic impact on search results but where there is more visible changes the change is given a name. It is expected that some websites with a massive amount of low quality inbound links will see severe penalties such as being completely removed from Google’s index and there is even talk of Google employing humans to actively search the internet to penalise such low quality websites as they present a major problem to the way the Internet and specifically search was designed to work.
A directory does offer an opportunity to obtain a quality link to your own website which will enhance your own websites search results.
Buddy Web Design actively runs the following three directories:
After hours and hours of work these websites are starting to produce revenue on it’s own but also is a great lead generating system for Buddy Web Design. These directories are very topic specific and focus on a specific geographical area. The two tourism directories are done in Afrikaans because the English market is over saturated.
The product being sold is in high demand. With the tradesmen directory they offer social media marketing for people such as plumbers, builders and painters. With the tourism websites they offer high visibility for important search terms such as accommodation + area. It could be done in the English language as well but then you need to be very specific about the theme. You have to be realistic as always and do some practical research by studying the existing directories available on the internet.
There is a lot more involved than meets the eye when studying these websites. Money was spent on top quality graphics. Photographers are being employed by bartering advertising space. The important content is provided by Buddy Web Design who posses a minimum level of writing skills. There is a lot of ingredients needed to make money with a directory with the most important being patience, hard work and time. These directory examples are only starting to make money and still require a lot of hard work to bring the projects to completion. Just like many Kwikwap Web Design clients who get provided with a pretty shell and websites which are populated with the initial basic information these websites need to be completed 100% to be the best. Making money with a Kwikwap Websites requires hard work in most instances. Sometimes luck is involved but generally the requirement is hard work.
The good news is that Kwikwap Websites are easy and affordable. Normal people can become active bloggers and webmasters. They can register their websites with Google’s free resources like Google Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics, Google My business. If you intend to make money with a Kwikwap Website you need to use these tools and understand them. If there is the important demand for the product you intend selling you should soon see the actual search results. There is no more effective market research tool than having your own website and having access to the actual search results. Supply and demand determines price. If there is a demand for a product then it will show in search results. Google does provide potential advertisers with important information such as the volumes of searches for specific words and terms. It even provides trends for these words. By spending time studying these trends you will have an indicator of the demand for a specific product or service. Yes money can be made with your Kwikwap Website. You will need to offer a product or service for which there is a sufficient demand. The more competitive your industry the more work is required to get the desired results. A website can make you money by saving you time. A nice example is www.ohvoila.com . That’s a pretty website with the business owner being able to self manage her website. She is responsible for the current success of her business. Certain Kwikwap clients are artists or designers. Few people will search for “pretty art” or “pretty” jewellery. Other clients are restaurant owners. They have to deal with Trip Advisor where the public are the true reviewers. Our websites can only help these type of businesses to a certain limit. Yes we can get people to visit for search terms such as function venue but we can not be the Chef or Restaurant manager. We can not manage the product or service sold by our clients. But they too can make money with a Kwikwap Website! It is simple. Time is money for all these business owners. By having online shops with the option of having wholesale and retail prices we save our Jewellery design client time. She has 5 representatives selling the product in 10 countries. Restaurant owners like www.saveur.co.za menu and trading hours are easily accessible. We save them time, which is money by helping them to have this information easily accessible to the public. This is how you make money with a Kwikwap Website!
