MONEY MAKING WEBSITES. 5 WAYS HOW.
The money making website. Today we’re gonna discuss five ways that you can make build money making websites, specifically with WordPress, and this is specifically, methods that I’ve used myself. So I didn’t include anything here that I’m not personally familiar with.
And the first form of money making websites that I’ve had the most success with is building business websites for local clients. All the other methods take a little bit more time to learn, but once you know how to build a website with WordPress you’re it.

Why Build A Money Making Website?
You know the easiest way to make the most money and the shortest amount of time is to find offline businesses that are money making businesses and need your services. So just to give you a few examples, I’m just gonna search for a common service like kitchen remodeling. I’m going to search for maybe two different cities and see if I could find WordPress websites. So we’ll do kitchen remodeling and I’ll try Miami Florida and I have a little tool here on Google Chrome that’s gonna show me whether or not these websites are using WordPress so let me go to the first one. It’s not a directory like homeadvisor or Yelp so J&J; cabinets that’s one of them and let me find another one here Coral Gables Plumbing so let me see if either one of these are built with WordPress you know this isn’t a great looking it’s it’s very basic but this is the tool I have here it’s showing the WordPress icon that tells me this is built with WordPress so the first one we see is a hit so this goes to show you that there are so many businesses out there that need the service and the way that you can use this to your advantage is make sure that you’re finding ones locally you know a lot of these business owners they want someone local that they can either meet with or get on the phone with and they don’t want to deal with a company that’s you know nationwide or a big company that handles millions of clients like GoDaddy or you know web comm Wix something like that this has been the best method for me to create sustainable income month after month you can build these s for a set up fee and then a monthly charge to manage and this is something that I discuss a lot through my site.
So I recommend that if you’re interested in learning more about what I do and how you can do the same thing go to website profit course comm and from there you can download a one-page PDF which is the 15 tools to start your web design business those are the ones that I use most frequently and I also have a lot of articles that are gonna help you along the way and before we move to the next way to money making I just want to check out this other website that we opened and as soon as I open it here I can see that it’s built with WordPress so that goes to show you that WordPress is obviously one of the best ways to create a website and if you do it the right way it should rank well on Google now the next method is display advertising and the biggest network to do this is Google Adsense so if you just search for Adsense you’re gonna see a link for google.com slash Adsense and that’s where you can sign up and what they do is they provide a piece of code that you can put on your website you can pick different sizes you could pick a size for within a blog post on the sidebar on the header of your so like a banner and you see these most on news websites but if you have a blog or a website that has a lot of traffic basically what this is going to do is put other ads on your website and if somebody clicks through to the ad from your website you get a cut of whatever the advertiser is paying so that could be anywhere from a penny to 50 cents or a dollar depending on the topic of the website and how valuable the advertisement is so I’m going to try and bring up one of these ads and as I mentioned these are on a bunch of news sites so let me go to HuffPost comm and I I would guess that we’re gonna run into some of these display ads and as soon as I do this you can see that’s what this banner ad is here and that’s what this banner is here on the side you see this ad choices with this little triangle that’s what is going to identify a Google ad and this is all this is through the double-click Network and that is Google Adsense ties into that so you’re gonna see these on so many s across the web I mean millions and millions of sites and it’s super easy to set up but as I mentioned the main requirement is that you’re gonna want a high traffic website if you don’t if you don’t have high traffic you’re not gonna do a lot of money making with display ads so this is why you need to build up your website for usually months and months to get a website that’s a good match for Google Adsense now similar to the display advertising another method is affiliate advertising or affiliate marketing and that is it’s very similar to display ads but instead of just having any advertisement run on your site and letting Google’s algorithm figure that out you either specifically pick out a business that has an affiliate program or you can find marketplaces that do affiliate advertisements so without a doubt the most popular one is Amazon so if you are in a specific niche with your and there’s products that relate to that niche you can sign up for Amazon affiliate so let me just search for Amazon affiliate and you can sign up from this link to their program and you can either manually choose products or they also have a way to dynamically insert products based on the content on your website and you get paid a percentage if somebody clicks through and buys now with the Amazon program I think the buying window is about 24 hours so if somebody clicks through and they purchase something within 24 hours you’ll get a cut of that sale I’m not sure if they still do an escalating percentage like so I think before it was like if you refer 0 to 5 or 0 to 10 products you get say 5 percent and I don’t know these numbers specifically
I’m kind of just using it as an example but you’d get somewhere around 5 percent but then if you refer say 10 to 20 you get 7% and 20 or more you might get eight percent or nine percent and they may have changed that recently so you have to look into the details of the Amazon Associates program but suffice it to say that it’s an easy way to money making if you have a good match on your website to some Amazon products the other cool thing about Amazon’s program is not only do you get the product you refer but you’ll get a cut of anything they buy so say for instance they click over from your website on say like you know diapers you say you have a baby website and they click a link to baby diapers but they buy an HDTV that is part of the Amazon affiliate program well you’re gonna get a cut of both of them so the one awesome thing about Amazon is you’re normally gonna do better around holiday season when people are buying a lot you’re gonna see a big spike in your money making around Black Friday and then Christmas season and now with Amazon Prime day that they do in the summer now as I showed you in the first example you saw that it doesn’t take a ton to build a WordPress website for a business you know you don’t really need to be that creative if you understand WordPress but let’s say you are really good with either design or code you can go a level above building s and managing that for specific businesses and you can build a wordpress theme or a plug-in and sell that on a marketplace so the I would think the most popular marketplace for this is theme forest and they have well first of all they’re part of a website called Envato and Envato has marketplaces for a lot of things relating to online development so they have I think audio clips video clips HTML codes CSS code WordPress themes WordPress template so they have a lot that you can buy on there the one specifically were for a wordpress is themeforest.net and as you can see on here they have 38,000 over 38,000 WordPress themes and templates available so if you’re really good as I mentioned with either design or code or maybe you you know maybe you’re good with design and you have a friend that’s really good with code you can work together develop a theme specific to a particular type of business or industry and you can upload your theme relatively easily on here and they’re gonna go through an approval process and if you start to build some traction and get reviews you can see considerable money making this way so let me click on some of these WordPress themes that are available and we’ll just bring up a demo so here’s one for a law firm business so let’s open this up and check out the live preview and you can see here some of the features that are part of this website you have the full background image in the on the landing page here you have some of these I think these are probably css3 html5 animations and hover animations and they go through the different areas of service for this particular law company so yeah like I mentioned when you’re doing a theme you’re gonna want to you’re not gonna want to do a theme that’s going to apply to every type of business out there you want you’re gonna want to be specific to one type of niche and build in as many options that are related to that niche as possible so you can see how nice this this template is so if you think you can develop a like this doing that and uploading it on theme farms might be a good idea for you now I actually did this years ago and just to be quite frank I was good with code I was not that good with design so my my theme did not get approved because design wasn’t up to their standards and like I said I’ve had more success on the local business website management and not theme and plug-in development the last method to money making is I would say the one that you you want to pursue the most because you get the you have the most freedom and you get the biggest cut and that is selling your own products you know whether you’re selling a physical product or a digital product you know you’re not dealing with affiliate networks or display advertising where you’re only getting a small cut of an advertisement you’re dealing with selling things yourself so you you know the upside of that is you get to find the most money making here, the downside is that you have to learn marketing sales you know it’s a it’s a lot more to put the pieces together if you’re going to sell your own products maybe you have a business offline where you’re selling product and you just want to upload them online well one of the best plugins for that is WooCommerce and I thought that was gonna auto complete but it looks like Google picked it up for me so if we go to WooCommerce this is a platform for e-commerce on WordPress. I’m not quite sure if this is a plug-in or a theme within itself but you can see here they have over 32 million downloads and it powers over 28% of online stores, so it’s definitely one of the biggest e-commerce platforms for WordPress.
And let’s say you don’t want to maybe you don’t want to do the payment processing through your website and another example of something you sell is you can teach so you can do digital learning products well there’s another site called teachable which that provides the platform to do the sales even though you can build most of the information on your website and you can just upload the videos that are part of your digital product to a site like teachable and I’m sure that there is probably a dozen other s that are very similar to teachable yeah this is specifically for online courses another one that you can upload products to and do pre-orders which I have experience with is Gumroad com so if you just search Google for Gumroad you’ll see that’s another one where it looks like they target music comics software books and films so a little bit more of the creative products if you’re gonna build your own products and sell them online WordPress is the perfect platform for your website as your hub and you can use these other platforms to do payment processing customer communication and a ton of other features.
If you have specific ideas for what you want to do, just search it out and you’re probably gonna find either a plug-in or another platform that easily integrates with WordPress to do this.
You know I think that a lot of people spend so much time with the learning, a lot of time contemplating, but you got it, you got to take action if you want to create Money Making Websites with these digital skills._sstnq
