How To Make Money With WordPress
To set yourself apart from other marketers on the internet, you need to provide people a way to get to know you. To be happy and continue your online endevor, you need to make money. Why not combine the two? Make money with WordPress and create your own blog.
When I first started my blog, I figured I would run out of things to blog about rather quickly. Now that I have started to make money with WordPress, I find I have a list of things I want to share that is so long, I have enough topics to write about for months to come. Sometimes I am tempted to just sit down and write all of them and post all of them at once, but I have learned to pace myself. I do not want to burn myself out, so I try to post once a day about 5 days a week. Part of starting my own business and working from home is to give me the time to do what I want to do, and be able to walk away from my business and enjoy life without worrying about it failing in my absence.
Make Money With WordPress – Topics
Make a list of several topics you are interested in, and topics you are passionate about. In my case, I enjoy online marketing and helping other people succeed, so the main topics I chose to blog about are: Internet Marketing, Network Marketing, Affiliate Marketing, and Product Reviews. Create quality content that is useful and helpful to other people. If you are promoting a particular product, service or technique, do not make every single blog post about the same thing. Choose 3 or 4 different techniques, products or services then rotate your postings. To successfully make money with WordPress, you do not want to bore your readers.
Make Money With WordPress – Site Backlinks
Create backlinks to your blog posts. Getting other web sites and web pages to link to your content is crucial. You can go online and do a Google search (or other search providers) and search for backlinks. You will find there are some sites where you can copy and paste a link to your blog post and it will automatically create backlinks for you. You will also find there are services you can subscribe to that will do the work for you. If you have read my previous posts, you will know I am a big fan of making things automatic, which frees up my time to be spent doing other things.
Make Money With WordPress – Article Backlinks
Another way to get backlinks to your posts is to rewrite your content and submit it to article directories. You do want to be sure your content is at least 35% different than your original blog post. The search engines do not like duplicate content, so be sure to create your new content to be as different as you can, while still conveying the message you want to get across. This can be done manually or there are programs available to automate your posting such as Article Marketing Robot.
Make Money With WordPress – Forums
Another helpful way to “make money with WordPress” is to go online and search forums that relate to the topic(s) you are blogging about. Take time to read what people are posting and respond to some of the posts if you have something of value to add. You can provide a link to your blog post, but do not link directly to a product page as this will be considered spamming in the forum and you will be kicked out and banned. Avoid posting something like “check out my blog at www.blog.com”, instead post a few useful sentences and make reference that there information about the subject at your blog and post a link. A good question to ask yourself when posting content in a forum is “would I personally find this information helpful and would I click the link to the blog post and read it?”
To make money with WordPress, you want to have as many different types of backlinks pointing to your original content as possible. You also want to make sure that what you are posting is quality information that will be beneficial for the people who have taken the time to read it. If you are just creating a blog post to push a product or service, people will start ignoring everything you write.
If you want to make money with WordPress, but you are not comfortable writing, or have no idea how to get started, there are programs online that will help with creating your blog and walk you through the processes needed to be successful. One program that many people have found extremely helpful is Barbara Ling’s Income Fitness program. It teaches you much more than just blogging, but it has great training on how to setup a profitable blog. To kickstart your effort to make money with WordPress, check out Income Fitness. Whether you choose to do it all yourself or use an automated system, make the choice to start NOW. If you put it off until tomorrow, you will likely look back in a few weeks and realize you have never gotten started.
Be blessed and happy marketing!!
