While selling digital products or services can be an easy way to start making money online, there’s nothing quite like selling real, physical products. Here are a few ways you can get started selling products with WordPress.
My response: you’re 98% right. Unless you’re selling exclusively to multimillionaires, the vast majority of your customer base won’t be able to afford premium products, but what’s interesting is it doesn’t matter. Often, you can make more money selling to the 2% than you can to the entire 98% combined.
I hope this guide has answered any questions you had on how to start a blog, but if any of the steps were unclear to you, you can find a more detailed version of each step by using the menu at the top right of this page (or at the bottom of this page if you’re on a smartphone).
Also, you can input this code into your Description field. This code enables infinite scrolling, which means your older posts will keep loading as your reader scrolls down until he reaches your first post. (Your posts appear in chronological order, from most recent to earliest.)
Affiliate marketing works in conjunction with several other online advertising mechanisms. This is the case because affiliates will often use these platforms for marketing purposes. Some of the mechanisms include search engine optimization (SEO), e-mail marketing, paid search engine marketing (PPC-Pay Per Click), display advertising, and content marketing. At the same time, affiliates can also appropriate less traditional advertising methods. An example would be publishing reviews of services or products.
Unfortunately you’d have to take that up with Facebook; to my knowledge they don’t allow you to enter a custom category. I’m surprised that nothing on the list would be relevant since it’s a pretty extensive list.
Are you wondering how to start a blog? Or maybe you have questions about it. I’m glad you’re here! In this post, I’ll show you exactly how to create your own blog, no technical experience required. (It’s easier and faster than you think.) Plus, I’ll answer some frequently asked questions along the way. This is the site I wish I had when I started blogging almost 14 years ago.
This site has a lot of useful information. Our blog focuses on our books, free children’s stories, and up and coming information on what is new. This article has given us ideas to improve our blog. Thanks so much!
Making money blogging can take a lot of persistence, but it can pay off in the long-run if you’re starting out from scratch. Just remember that you don’t have to use all of these money-making avenues at once. Consider what other people in your industry are doing, and start from there.
When you click that blue button you’ll be taken to our guide to starting a blog. Once you buy your domain name, we’ll hook you up with our $20 Pro Blogging ebook totally free! This book will help you to start earning money from travel blogging and turn your travel blogging hobby into a career.
most bloggers make $0..01 per page view or $0.02 per visitor. Very succssful (efficient) bloggers make 10 times more than that (I’ve made a research about it – researchasahobby.com/how-much-money-can-earn-blogging-per-visitor/)..
If you are planning to create a personal blog where you discuss a variety of topics then I recommend using your name, or some variation of it, since your blog is all about you. For example, I own the blog scottchow.com. You can also add your middle name or middle initial if you find your name is already taken. Or you could use a variation like “Scott Chow Blog” or “Blogging with Scott”.
For example, if your site is about golf, your readers are likely to have a healthy income. Because of this, there are a good number of advertisers that want to get their ads in front of your readers, and they are likely to pay a good amount per click to do this.
Edge on the side of caution. Although putting a link on your site to another site for money is not illegal, it is against Google’s guidelines, as the person wanting the link is trying to manipulate the SERPs for their own gain.

Unfortunately I can’t find any way to hide it. The good news is that your FB friends won’t see that in any way when they look at your profile (unless you “like” your own page), but I realize it could still be a problem if someone is sitting next to you while you’re logged in. Facebook really hasn’t done a good job of working with people who want to separate business (or blog) and personal. When I blogged semi-anonymously, I was terrified of accidentally posting something to the wrong account! And it happened quite a few times. Sorry I can’t be more help!
Blog about something with plenty of room for discussion. A blog requires a lot of content to get going and remain interesting. You’ll be at this a long time so make sure you have plenty to talk about.
You are probably using WordPress.com. Please contact WordPress.com support and they will be able to downgrade your package. See our guide on the difference between self hosted WordPress.org vs free WordPress.com blog.
To go back to our house metaphor, using a theme is like hiring an interior designer to pull everything together and make all the rooms flow, without actually having to paint the walls or carry the furniture yourself.
With these foundations in place you’re now ready to start attempting to make money from your blog but you do need to be aware that just because you have set up your blog, have content and have engaged readers that the money won’t just automatically flow.
You’ll have 24/7 access to a professional support team and unlimited storage. The downside is you won’t have the huge range of plugin, widget and design options as with WordPress, since many of those are community-designed and maintained.
Companies don’t offer free blogs out of the goodness of their hearts. They still want to make money somehow. If you’re only using their free service, they’re not making money from you. Therefore, they don’t have a lot of incentive to keep you happy. Sometimes this means you’ll have little to no support. Other times it means you’ll be badgered with offers for their paid-for products.
“Permalinks” are the words that appear in the URLs for your blog posts and pages. They help search engines, like Google, find your blog posts more easily. This gives you a better chance of being indexed for the keywords that will drive traffic to your blog.
I used your guide and made my own site, thanks for the help! 🙂 I’d like to create a second one in WordPress under a different domain name (a new blog in a different language). I followed all the steps, except I can’t figure out how to install wordpress or add the new domain to create a separate page..
I created this site to give beginners a fast, foolproof guide to starting a blog without having to learn HTML or making expensive mistakes that most people do. 9,500 blogs have already been created using this guide!
I’m not going to lie to you but it can take months even years before you might see a significant return on the time you invest in to starting a blog but that is why I have created this free guide so that you can be confident in taking the right steps to achieving your blogging goals.
Thanks for the great guide! I really like your posts! The one question that I have, is what does it mean to install WP? Is it actually installing a system on your computer? Or is it just integrating Hostgator in to WP?
I have found there are some people who are actually afraid of starting a blog on WordPress. It is a lot easier than most people believe. I was one of those who was afraid to take the plunge and start a blog using WordPress.
I am going to New Zealand and Australia for two months in a couple of weeks and want to make a travel blog for friends and family in uk and other places. It will have photos, videos (a lot!) and text. It won’t be commercial, I’m not selling anything and will only do it whilst I am away and maybe for a little while when I return.
