WordPress is the most powerful web design platform online, it’s being used by more than 90% of the websites online, and it’s absolutely FREE. It comes with thousands of FREE themes, thousands of FREE plugins to take your site to the next level, and requires no coding or any type of expertise to use.

How to Monetize your Website

If you don’t have your own products(s) or service(s), the best way to earn extra income online is through affiliate programs.

I use Amazon.com it’s the largest distributor online, they have more than 2 million products for you to promote and earn commission from.

That means if you are a Barber you can sell “Organic Hair Grease” from your site, or if your Beautician you can sell “Virgin Hair” from your site, and earn a commission.

Join Amazon Affiliate Program

There are thousands of other retailers like Amazon online, however Amazon is by far the most trusted, and it’s FREE.  If you want to mark up the price of products on your site or flip products on eBay I recommend wholesaling or even Drop shipping products to avoid having to purchase inventory.

How to get paid for your traffic

If you plan on generating any traffic on your site pay-per-click is another income option. Adsense is Google’s ad service, they pay you for promoting google ads on your site, and the more traffic you have the more you can make.

How to promote your site

You can promote your site on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or etc. for FREE. However if you want to maximize your site use FREE traffic exchange sites like 10khit.com, Traffup.net, or hit4hot.org to increase your traffic.

I recommend EasyHits4u I’ve been using it since 2010 and have generated over a 5 million views through their site alone.

Conclusion

Congratulations you’re done! You now have a website to promote your business, brand, or blog. It’s self-hosted and complete with your own custom domain name, as well as some of the best hosting around. Now you can work on designing your blog and creating quality content for your audience.

To customize the design that you want for your blog, you need to pick the theme you want. To do this go to “Appearances” and the “Themes” on your blog dashboard. More WordPress Tutorials

You can choose from any of the free themes that come on your blog or download a new one that is either free or premium (paid). Some great themes I recommend are Optimizepress, Headway themes, or Studiopress themes.

Also, if you are looking to send newsletters and collect emails from your blog, which is almost required for success with any blog, I recommend you use Getresponse or Aweber.
