1 . Affiliate marketing is a good way to make money.
Affiliate marketing is when you tell your audience about a product or service using special links that track sales. If someone buys after clicking your link, you get a fee.
Affiliate marketing happens in real life when you help a friend open a bank account at your office. Most of the time, they give you a gift card or some kind of bonus.
In the same way, you can join affiliate programs for a lot of online goods and services. There are affiliate schemes for every type of business (called a “niche”).
If you want to get started with affiliate marketing, you can start by thinking about the products you already use that your readers might also be interested in. Then you can check to see if they have a program for affiliates that you can join.
You can find a long list of things to sell at:
The company Amazon
Once you’ve chosen the goods you want to promote, you can use a plugin for WordPress like PrettyLinks to manage your affiliate links.
It lets you quickly add links to posts, make branded links, have keywords automatically replaced in links, and even see how each link is doing on your site.
Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money because you can promote so many different goods. Almost every popular shop has an affiliate program, like Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, and others.

2 . Put Google AdSense on your WordPress site
Google Adsense is a simple way for your blog to make money. Just add a script from Google to your page, and you can start showing ads.
When someone clicks on the ad, you will get paid. CPC ads are what you call these.
What’s the CPC? The letters CPC stand for “cost per click.” When you use Google Adsense to show CPC ads, you get a set fee every time a visitor hits on one.
The marketer decides how much each click will cost. (This is different from CPM ads, where you get paid for how many times your ad is seen instead of how many times it is clicked. CPM stands for “cost per thousand impressions,” where M is the roman number for 1,000.
Google Adsense is a good place to start if you want to make money online.
To get started, you can look at our guide on how to make money with Google AdSense on a WordPress blog and this lesson on how to make the most money with AdSense.
Want an option to Google AdSense? Attempt Media.net. They also have a lot of sponsors, and the money they give out is good.
3 . To sell ads directly, use a plug-in for WordPress.
Google AdSense is easy to set up, but you can only make a certain amount of money from it. Each ad click will earn a different amount.
You can make more money if you sell banner ads directly on your website. You don’t need a middleman who takes a cut of the money. Instead, you discuss the price and terms yourself.
We’ve already talked about the difference between CPC and CPM ads, where you get paid per click or per thousand views. You could sell banner ads using one of these models, but most writers charge a flat rate instead. It’s easy to charge a flat rate than to keep track of views or clicks.
Still, it takes more work to run Google AdSense than to sell ads directly. Instead of just adding a bit of code to your website, you’ll have to discuss the price, come up with an agreement and terms, and take care of administrative tasks like invoicing.
Using a WordPress plug-in to handle ads, on the other hand, can make the process easier. We suggest that you use AdSanity because it lets you manage both Google AdSense and your own ads.

4 . Get paid to review things
Paid reviews are a way to make money on your site that is similar to paid posts.
This is a slightly different way to make money than through partner links on a review site, which was already talked about.
Instead, you get to try out items for free that are related to your niche, and you can even get paid to write about them.
This can be done in a way that is similar to getting paid posts. You should review items that are related to your niche and that your audience would like.
You can go to sites and ask if you can do paid reviews on your own. There are also websites like PayPerPost that can help you find companies that might be interested.
5 . Flipping websites online is a way to make money.
Most people don’t know how to build a WordPress site, so if you do, you’re way ahead of them. Entrepreneurs sometimes like to buy websites that are already well-known and use them for their own businesses.
If you can set up a WordPress blog and get people to visit it, you can sell it and get paid for your work.
To do this, you need to know what kinds of websites are popular and how to price and sell them. There are websites like Flippa that let people buy and sell websites through auctions and brokers.
