If the thought of Dreamweaver and Front Page leave you cold, and HTML, PHP, and CSS sounds like a contagious disease, you will be blown away by the latest marketing platform – WordPress. With WordPress you can have a fully functioning, optimized site published within hours. Hundreds of thousand of WordPress sites are being built every week, they are easy as pie to use and they can be designed just the way you want, or you can use some of the thousands of designs already out there on the web – and a lot of them are free!
Want to try it? People are making thousands of dollars every month from their WordPress sites, and you can too if you follow these steps:
Research – Find a Profitable Niche
This step is possibly the most time consuming, but you must do it carefully by researching what available niches are out there, with which you can make money. Once you have found your niche, you have to look at available affiliate programs, related products, and perform keyword research.
Purchasing a domain name relevant to your niche is essential; it’s the first thing Google bots see, so it must be relevant to your niche and coherent.
WordPress offers a vast choice of plugins that can manage many of the tedious tasks we used to have to do manually, such as search engine submission, SEO, metatags and there are special plugins for affiliate companies like Amazon.com. You can set these so that someone in France, Germany, the UK or Italy can purchase from their local Amazon site!
Add Quality Content Regularly
Just like any website, the Google bots want fresh content added regularly. Begin the site by building 5 or 6 pages, and then continue to add content daily if possible. It only takes a few minutes once you have done your research. WordPress can act like a stand-alone website – you can turn off comments, so decide if you want to have the ability to use it as a blog or not. The advantage of using it as a blog is that you can build backlinks quicker. Yes, unfortunately nobody has invented a good backlink building system for WordPress yet – it’s still something you will have to do yourself.
Keep within your niche with any products you offer, so the friendly Google bots will keep coming back.
