This article for new member would like to make brandname and promote your profiles to your Client. One you can earn money by writing articles or content.

I recommed to build your website in reviewing productions such as welding machines, tools, equipment or marketing online.

  • Review product: Amazon or Udemy,…
  • Marketing online: publish your product or your service such TPI, freelance job,…

I recommend to sign up your domain at namecheap.com and godaddy.com.

Then point this domain to the hosting server. I recommend to build your website with wordpress source. This stage may have problem with you at the first time.

Nameserver of your domain should point to Cloudflare.com with Namecheap instruction or Godaddy instruction.

Note: Don’t buy domain and hosting the same provider.
