A big reason I started this website is to help others increase their confidence, update their makeup/style and increase their income.
Just think of the kind of lifestyle you could live if you were to earn a few extra bucks a month…say $1000 – $5000?
Yes, you’re reading correctly! If you spend a little time burning the midnight oil or contribute a few hours a day, you could make yourself a nice little nest egg to spend as you see fit.
Lots of people dream about having extra money to spend on:
>paying off debts
>spending more time with family
>gain financial freedom
Whatever your purpose is behind longing to make additional money will thrive your drive in accomplishing your goals.
There are plenty of ways to make money online. I have compiled a short blog on 5 ways to make $1000 in 30 days. If you’re willing to do the work, the money is yours for the taking.
Step 1. Start Your Own Blog
This is something anyone can do in their spare time. If you like to talk about a Niche or Hobby of yours, well there is no better place than to do that on your blog!
Speaking of Niches, here is a list of 200+ Profitable Niches that Stewart made from his site Nichehacks
Each Niche is organized into the 5 main markets of:
religion / spirituality.
Once you’ve chosen your Niche, now it’s time to name your website. Try to come up with a name that represents what it is you are doing, like, Stewart for example, he writes about Niches, so he called his site Nichehack.com.
By doing so, will make it easier for customers to find you and remember your sites name.
Step 2: Choose The Right Platform
It’s not that expensive to start a blog. WordPress.com is one of the best platforms to use for blogging. No worries if your not Tek-Savy. WordPress is so easy to use and experts are always on hand to help you if you need assistance. You can get started for free!
In order to start a successful blog that makes money, you will need to set up a self-hosted WordPress site. Self-hosted means, the site you built is completely yours.
You are not going to be able to make money from a free blog. On the other hand, a self-hosted blog lets you have complete control.
If you use a free service:
❖ You WILL NOT own your blog or your website content.
❖ You will have limited options on customization and limited support.
❖ You will have restrictions on what ads you put on your website to monetize it.
❖ Most of the free platforms put their own distracting ads on your site.
❖ Your blog won’t look like a pros and it might be hard to get approval for some affiliate marketing programs.
❖ Without affiliate programs, you won’t be able to make a full-time income blogging.
If you want to make money from your blog, your website will need to be self-hosted on a web server that allows you to be able to customize it the way you want.
WordPress.org is the most popular website platform in the world. It’s free and extremely flexible.
Step 3: Buy Hosting For Your Blog
WordPress.org is free, but you will be required to host your files on a server. If your desire is making money from your blog or turning your blog into a business, then you MUST pay for hosting.
I find BlueHost is the #1 hosting platform.
This option comes at a cost, but you won’t be able to add ads to your website if you set up your blog the wrong way.
Reasons Why You Should Use Bluehost.
➣ #1 recommended web hosting platform by WordPress.org.
➣ FREE domain name when you buy a 12-month plan.
➣ best affordable hosting for beginners who have limited resources to invest in blogging.
☟CLICK THE GREEN “GET STARTED” BUTTON ☟
Once you press GET STARTED, you will be redirected to the BlueHost site where you can select the type of plan you want to purchase. All you need to get started is the Basic plan, you can always upgrade later if you desire.
The longer the plan is, the less expensive it gets. I firmly propose you buy at least around a year hosting plan for these benefits:
Should you truly desire to give blogging a shot, you have to focus on it for no less than a year. What’s more, putting some cash forthright will truly make you start this online stuff just when you’re ready to.
You will get a FREE domain for the initial a year,
The month to month cost will be a lot less expensive.
On the off chance that you just buy a month to month plan, you may neglect to renew your plan with the danger of shutting down your site and therefore, losing business.
The best value for your money is the three year plan. That’s the thing I did when I began adviceforahappylife. You need more money to start but the savings are great!
If you need to keep your expenses as low as could be, uncheck any of the additional items. Except “Domain Privacy Protection”, is a must, which is just $0.99/month to help keep your personal details private.
Stage 4. Introduce WordPress
Bluehost makes it simple to make a WordPress blog and it’s FREE. Bluehost will automatically install WordPress for you. Then you just simply pick your password!
If at anytime you are uncertain about what to do, you can open Live Chat on Bluehost and their specialized team will help in a matter of seconds.
Stage 5: Pick A Theme
What is a theme? Well, a theme determines how your blog looks.
It gives the foundation to make the design of your WordPress site.
Most themes will give you:
✔︎ page design/layout
✔︎ font style
✔︎ widget areas
✔︎ navigation menus
So many themes to pick from…what to choose?
I generally suggest DIVI Theme for beginner bloggers. Everything updates automatically! Yay!
User friendly and you can try DIVI for free before committing. Divi has everything.
Give DIVI a Try!
Once you’ve chosen a theme you’re done and on your way to build your blog!
YOU HAVE Begun YOUR OWN Self-Hosted WORDPRESS BLOG!
Now you can sign into your WordPress dashboard and begin your very own first post!
So there you have it…how To Begin A Successful BLOG!
Enjoy your brilliant and rewarding venture! If you put your time and work diligently you will arrive at your goal!
