Build wordpress blogs and make money online
Now days many people have found ways to make tons of money with WordPress. There are many different ways by which you can also earn a living online with it. Have you ever thought of making money using WordPress? If yes, this detailed post is a treat for you where I will be discussing 8 proven ways to make money with WordPress.
If you find a solution to a problem and create a plugin for it (that your audience might be interested in buying), thereâ€™s absolutely nothing that can stop you from making passive income from it. Analyze a few existing plugins that are making decent money and figure out how you can do the same to create a constant cash flow like Pippins Plugins or FooPlugins. If you are thinking to make money by selling WordPress plugins, make sure to create them by focusing on a specific need. One of the best examples in this category is the Comment Luv commenting link-back plugin. It makes your blog a spam free commenting zone and the free version is used by over 750k bloggers worldwide. Plus the plugin developer monetized their creation by release a premium version with more advanced features.
There are so many companies which are designing fantastic themes for WordPress sites to make passive income streams. For instance, people like Brain Clark and Chris Pearson founded StudioPress and Thesis respectively to build quality and appealing themes for WordPress websites. They have been making millions over years now just by hiring few designers and selling appealing themes each and every day. If you are starting out in creating WP themes and still not confident enough, instead of doing it all by yourself you can form a team, or join a venture that is already in the business of making themes for others. This way you wonâ€™t have as difficult of a time making money while completing your work.
Many people want to use WordPress in their blogs, but they just donâ€™t have much technical knowledge. So they opt for blog setup service. Your task as a blog setup service provider will be to install WordPress, upload a WordPress theme, add the recommended plugins, etc. To get clients simply create a blog setup service page on your blog or website. Attract few leads or dedicated traffic to that page, either by adding banners for your service on your own site, guest blogging or by paid advertising. Social Media works as well.
Are you an advanced developer with some extra time on your hands? Try offering customization services. Many developers are making decent side incomes offering website, theme and/or plugin customization services on websites like Upwork and Freelancer. You can also offer your services through your own website. In any case, there are many WordPress users who can install a theme (or maybe their hosting provider offered this along with the setup of their WordPress install) but they donâ€™t have the technical ability to make changes for page layouts, custom post types, etc. This is where you can offer up your services at a set task or variable per hour rate.
One of the easiest ways to make money online using WordPress is to offer consulting services. It can be done easily only if you are good at WordPress – be it creating custom designs for clients, or teaching WordPress tutorials to beginners or advanced users. Make sure you have a great portfolio if you are thinking of making a passive income stream by using this method. One of the easiest ways to build a great portfolio to increase your income is to offer your consulting services (or select products youâ€™ve created) for free to some of the top influential bloggers in the WordPress community. Ask them to give feedback if they are satisfied with your work or to share a review of your services on their blog. This can really boost your online sales, as testimonials from top bloggers is great social proof.
In addition to offering products or services on your blog you can generate a passive income. You can make money using affiliate marketing, selling ads, sponsored reviews, etc from your blog. This requires no additional effort from you â€“ itâ€™s simply a way to take full advantage of the content and traffic you already have. Most marketplaces and service providers offer affiliate programs. Some of our favorites that are easy to work with include Themeforest, Shareasale, CJ Affiliate and Creative Market. Just signup for an account and add links in posts where it feels natural. To sell ads you can offer your own ad packages or work through a company like BuySellAds. Or signup for a Google Adsense account and insert your code to let Googleâ€™s network handle the ads while you get a nice little check each month.
You donâ€™t have to be a WordPress genius to make a living. If you can do any of the above and know how to sell yourself or your product you will have plenty of chances to make really good money using WordPress. Also, figure out what your targeted audience truly wants; this way you will be on the right track.
