We all know that eBay is one of the biggest players on the Internet. The downside is that they charge you commission, and you may not actually make as much money as you hoped.

I call it an auction site, but the truth is that it is more of a sell your stuff site. Today, my site is run for the local community, and it does really well.

I know that there are lots of professional sites out there trying to make money by promoting local business online. The thing is that many are very impersonal and a lot of business owners don't like them. Let's face it, if you are running your own local business, you may want to promote yourself as your products. At the end of the day, people buy people and I think it is important to remember that.
Promoting local businesses was something that I fell into by mistake. My friend ran a restaurant and she wanted some help promoting her business. I suggested I create a blog for her and run on her behalf. A month later, the blog really took off and so did my friend's business. She told other local business owner, and I soon found myself running a local business blog.

Social media can really help you to make a lot of money online if you use it right. I love social media, and I do use it.

When I first started out using social media, I made loads of mistakes and had to start again. It is not an easy craft to master. Lots of people say that it is easy, but to be honest, if you seriously want to make money online, you do need to consider social media a skill.

The first site I started to write on was Hubpages. The nice thing about Hubpages is that you can set up your own profile, and post articles without having to go through loads of approvals or rating. I took advantage of Hubpages to promote both my skills and knowledge. With a couple of months, I was contacted by various site owners. They wanted me to write for them, and that is one way I got into writing articles for others. That was back in 2012, and today, most of them are still with me and send me assignments on a weekly basis. The good news is that it did not cost me anything to get started on Hubpages. Also I used my work on Hubpages to apply for my Adsense account.

Top Tip Ten – How to Make Money Online with Your Own Website
Making money with your own website can be tough. But, if you get the balance between content and sales right, you can make a lot of money this way. I never let the product rule my my website. Instead I focus on quality content and giving the reader the correct information. Lots of affiliate websites out there do use very generic information, and a lot of it is wrong. In the long run, that is not going to make you any money, so I focus on quality content above all.
