The internet originally started as a way to exchange information and know what’s happening around the world. But today, we can do a lot more online from watching movies to exchanging documents to earning money. Yes, it is possible to make money online.
You can make money through WordPress, which is among the largest publishing platforms today with about 27% of all websites now hosted on WordPress, including some major ones.
Here is a list of six ways to earn money on WordPress.
If you are a web designer or developer, then you can earn money by developing themes on WordPress.
You should know the target market for which you are designing the theme and add all the required contents.
Successful people like Brian Clark and Chris Pearson founded StudioPress to create impressive and creative themes for websites on WordPress and now they have been earning millions by selling themes to businesses and individuals.
Design and Sell Graphics
If you know graphic designing then you can design graphics like logos, and infographics to make a good amount of money.
Sell Ads Directly by Using WordPress Advertising Plugin
You can sell ads directly on your website without relying on an intermediary. WordPress has its own plugin that lets you set your own terms and conditions. However, it’s not as easy as Google Adsense.
Write Paid Reviews
You can use your WordPress blog to publish sponsored content. Simply write about a product or service and charge the company for your efforts. This will, however, work only if you have a good number of visitors.
Create and sell Plugins
WordPress has about 46 thousands plugins and the number is constantly growing. Plugins make it easy to run and manage a website. While some of them are available for free, some can be purchased with a license.
It is a nice way to earn money. Just make a plugin that is in demand so that you can make people buy it.
Use It As an Online Store
You can use plugins to turn your WP site into an ecommerce store. It is also easy to integrate 2Checkout, PayPal, Shopify, and other such platforms into the system.
A Few Things To Remember:
- Make sure to host your site on a nice site that allows WordPress hosting and offers good up-time and support.
- You can sell themes and plugins to end users or to different platforms, too. You may either offer a lifetime license or a monthly subscription, whatever works for you.
It doesn’t require you to be an expert in WordPress in order to make a living out of it. Just find what works for you and get started. The key lies in having your own WordPress theme and offering products through it or other means to earn a good amount of money.
