What's the best book on making money with a WordPress blog?

January 1st, 2012

A typical question:

I have a couple of blogs that I enjoy writing, but it would be great if they could bring in a little money. Heck, at least enough money to pay for my domain name and hosting. What’s the best book for turning a blog into an income?


Answer: You are not alone. To clear the obvious, WordPress.com is the free hosting which will not be the right hosting for serious business owners. WordPress.org is the one being used by successful website owners. However, you need a separate web hosting plan in order to use the powerful blogging system from WordPress.org

You are not alone. The difference between using the WordPress.org and WordPress.com is not very obvious to most people.

Web hosting is the heart of your business and can mean the life or death to your business. Do not simply pick the first web hosting service you find. Most of them are just resellers, have almost no support and very unreliable. To answer your query about which web hosting to choose, here are 7 things to look for in a good WordPress hosting. An excellent hosting:

  1. has friendly Live Chat from the start,
  2. gives unlimited storage,
  3. offers no limit on bandwidth,
  4. gives unlimited add-on domains,
  5. has easy-to-use Site Builder,
  6. has Fantastico and QuickInstall to quickly install WordPress
  7. has Fantastico and QuickInstall to quickly install other useful free apps such as Joomla, Drupal, OSCommerce, ZenCart and more
  8. can be easily upgraded to VPS or one of their cheap dedicated server plans if and when your business require.

Answering your question, why not try Hostgator. If you are building your first website and needs a hosting plan, experts usually highly recommend going with Hostgator because they are the best cheap cpanel hosting around.

What if you find out that Hostgator sucks after you signed up with them? HG has 45 days, longer-than-industry-average money back guarantee so you have ample time to test them out. They are rated A+ by Better Business Bureau which shows their commitment to customer satisfaction. You also do not have to pay for the first month. You can just try their fully functional hosting service – you pay only $0.01 (you need to use the special coupon code). Do you know any other hosting company that can give you that kind of assurance? Anybody can grab an account from Hostgator for almost FREE.

How to Get an Unlimited Hosting Plan for Only 1 Cent

Click the coupon below try Hostgator cPanel hosting for almost free. If you already know that Hostgator is what you want, you can even save 25% off the normal price.

Who Should Not Try Hostgator

To be honest, no web hosting service is perfect. The drawbacks of Hostgator include:

  1. No free domain name – but you can easily get a domain name from the best domain registrar such as Godaddy or Namecheap for $10 or less. Would you agree that a website is not complete without a domain name?
  2. You need to pay full price after your first invoice – well, they need to make money too and all the support and great service do come with a cost

What about Bluehost? We believe Bluehost sucks because they have inodes limit of 50,000 which means they can suspend your account when it reaches 50k files. That is not exactly unlimited is it? That was why we moved to Hostgator and has been happy for more than 5 years.

If you are still not sure if HG is right for your WordPress needs, or you have specific query about anything at all, try the Live Chat at HG. They are fast and knowledgeable. Just shoot them some questions before you decide.

    I am not suggesting you reading book on money making from blogging because most of them are scam. Try searching for SEO tactic and how to increase your site page-rank on Google.

    Making money from blog will depend on the quality of your posts and the genre your web content has oriented. For basic monetizing scheme, put Google Adsense to you blog but it won’t make a lot of money.

    To cover monthly payment for domain and web hosting, Pay Per Post is a good place for making money online, and you can even make a living out of it.

    If you can draw a lot of readers to your blog, try sell ad placement instead. This way will better secure your income.

    There is no definitive book and I’ll add to what Smelly Cat has said by recommending you look at the link in my resources for a popular writer on the make money online niche. He has archived a good number of posts originally posted on his Blogger blog at this site.

    Love or hate him, and people are divided on this, whilst I don’t agree with everything he has written, he has an amusing style and will steer you away from a lot of the B.S. written by people who don’t have a clue and don’t really make any money. There are lots of them, just as there are lots of books and ebooks written by people who don’t even make enough money to cover their internet bill every month.

    There are so many ways you can potentially earn money you need to find the ways that work for you and your site(s) and it’s rarely as easy as most people claim or will try to tell you in order to sell you something :-)
