How can I make money from a website like Example. WordPress.com?
It’s everyone’s wish to monetize his/her website, but only a few succeed. One reason for that is competition, due to an increase in the number of websites in a single niche. The competition is growing because getting a website nowadays is very easy, and free of cost. The second reason is the use of improper techniques for monetization. Rest easy, I am here to help you with all of that.
Here are three ways in which you can make money with a WordPress site:
1) Have a blog:
WordPress is for blogging first and foremost, after all. That’s a common, proven, and trusted way to monetize a website, and WordPress makes it especially simple. For an easy guide on starting a blog, here’s a link. You can write on different topics, offer product reviews, and much more. Once you start getting traffic to your blog, the monetary value of your website will increase. The following two points are good examples of how to capitalize on that traffic.
WordPress provides a free plugin, WooCommerce, to build an online store. I’ve used it myself, and it’s good. Having an online store, you can sell products on your website. It can be your own, or you can drop-ship other companies’ products. You can sell physical goods or go digital, although if you’re neutral to that but interested in selling your own stuff, I would suggest digital products. They’re low overhead and you have no issues with inventory.
3) Consulting services:
Consultancy services in a field where knowledge is valuable, such as IT, Legal, health, agriculture, jobs, etc. always remain in demand. You can have a website for those and can create a good source of income by converting visitors into clients.
There can be other many ways, like offering downloads, ebooks, content creation, affiliate marketing, etc. through which you can easily monetize your website. In addition to the above ways, I would like to suggest you apply a systematic method for increasing traffic to your website, because without traffic, no monetization strategy is going to work.
My suggestion is to start a site, as in a blog, eCommerce store, or whatever. Apply OMTM to that. Build up traffic over a few months, and cash in on it! For the future, I recommend you purchase a domain, arrange a web host, and then run your website independently. The reason being, WordPress puts a lot of limits on-site design and monetization for websites that they own. For now, a free WP site is OK to start.
To be honest, after learning about OMTM, I never have to worry when I get a new idea for a business website and whether it’s going to get popular or not. The results so far have been good. OMTM stands for One Minute Traffic Machines, which is a several-hour-long video program teaching you how to get free traffic from just a few minutes of work per day. If you implement that in the right manner, then it won’t be exaggerating to call your website a money machine.
In conclusion, you can make money from a website, but it won’t happen by accident. You need to implement a systematic method. It doesn’t have to be hard or frustrating, but you do have to follow a sensible, consistent plan.
Please don’t hesitate if you seek my help. I have been successfully doing this for a long time. I would be pleased to help you.
