If you have been wondering to start having your own website, let me tell you some benefits of having a website :
– You can use your website as your personal blog, online store, gallery, etc. If you like writing then your blog can be a perfect place to share your ideas about anything that interests you.
– You can monetize your own website by having advertisers promote their ads there.
As you can see on this post, there are ads by Google and Amazon that I have placed in the website setting. Those two can bring me monetary profits with the increase of the viewers.
– You can maximize your goals by socializing your website in social media that allow website promotion. For example you want to make an art exhibition. Once you have made a website about it you can promote it in many social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
Those are some of the benefits of having your own website. Even though you can use other website as your personal blog and earn profit from it, you will still find limitations; one of them is inability to control the profit sources.
