    Unless you have been living in a cave for the last few years, you’ve caught wind that parking your domain names is potentially the worst thing you can do to monetize them. Today, you need to DEVELOP your domain names into real web services to earn realistic profits from them, but development is not always easy, especially if you do not know how to do any of it yourself, as it can be VERY EXPENSIVE.

    Development involves an ‘idea’, planning, design, development, testing, hosting and marketing. The more you know how to do yourself, the more profitable your website will be; if you need to farm-out every single aspect of it, you’re leaving very little room for profits unless you have an absolutely golden idea.
    As far as getting your project off the ground, what you need to do is find a good developer to help you develop your domain ideas, or a good team of developers, likely overseas, so that your costs can be minimal, compared to what you might pay here in the United States, or any other more economically developed country.

    Here are some basic options:

    • OPTION #1 – Learn about writing content, web hosting, DNS services for your domain, and HTML so that you can do most, if not all of the creation and development yourself. If your site has to do complicated things, such as allowing user log-ins, you’re going to need to learn some programming and basic database administration too. I suggest the combination of PHP and MySQL as they are both reasonably easy to comprehend with good effort and easy to find programmers for.

    • OPTION #2 – Find and hire a single good freelance programmer who also has talent with visual elements and the UI (user interface) so that he or she can build not only your websites functions, but can build the front end as well as the look and feel of the site and service.

    • OPTION #3 – Find and hire a single good freelance programmer who has friends and associates who are also freelancing and he or she can help you choose when to hire and pull others in on the projects.

    • OPTION #4 – Find a full development company who has access to a well-rounded talent pool such as one of each or several programmers, graphic artists, and basic search engine optimization people.
