Hey you guys, Last week I downloaded… AGAIN the WordPress App from the Google Play store and my oh my am I happy that I did! I created my website and started blogging on it. Working on my fourth and fifth article, (almost ready to publish).
If content Is key then writing is the door.
I wanted to create a Free website that I had more “control” over. My previous website for That’sLoveForYou, became unsupported because I couldn’t afford to pay my membership dues for Wealthy Affiliates. It’s a cool program that I was fortunate and temporarily had a premium membership status with.
It taught me how to blog successfully, become a wise affiliate marketer and how to build a monetized website from scratch.
However, keeping up with those monthly fees eventually became a problem. Don’t misunderstand, Wealthy Affiliate is a Great Program, especially for beginners but if you are not able to keep up with your monthly dues, or for whatever reasons that may arise, then obviously it’s not the right learning atmosphere.
So I’m just going to be walking you through the steps that I’m taking to make things better for me. They may very well work for you too.
The problem for me is, I do not have a steady income. This is probably everyone’s problem. This is just how I’m taking certain steps to remedy my situation.
Why? Because I love to write and NOW, thanks to Wealthy Affiliates Network and the precious and extremely valuable skills, or plainly put, what I learned from those months that I spent learning on that platform. I can say that now I am familiar with building monetized websites and blogging.
Why I Quit While I Was Ahead?
When I was notified that my previous website was being closed for nonpayment of membership dues. I just let it shut down. I realized that that wasn’t the first time that that happened. In fact, it was like that happened every other month or so. I was lucky to be online for three consecutive months let alone on an educational platform such as Wealthy Affiliate.
Anyway, after I received the automatic notification letting me know that my websites server was being shut down, of course, I got nervous, angry and upset that all the hard work that I put in was about to disappear in a few days. I had two choices.
1. Find the $49 to pay Wealthy Affiliated, then I can pick up where I left off.
2. Let it shut down, start from scratch from s free platform, purchase my domain and upgrade later when I can afford it.
Obviously, I choose the 2nd option. You can tell because my website link still has the hyper-link WordPress-dot-com, (http://www.thatsloveforyou. wordpress.com).
Whenever I decide to purchase my domain (same thing as an upgrade), most likely really soon. For right now content is key.
After the inevitable closure of my website, I then process to wait a few weeks.
Starting from scratch, I began to rebuild that very same website using WordPress… Adding content but this time around everything is different.
Right now it’s a Free site… Much like thousands of sights. However, I want to be able to make money with this one.
The purpose for gathering this information from visitors range from gathering numerical statistical data on to gathering specific demo-graphical information, for various purposes, with sales and educational purposes are the number in the billions and are the majority.
Don’t REALLY have to know what You Want To Do, just have to do something…
One thing I learned that stuck with me was that success eventually comes once I take action.
In the meantime, creating quality content was my main focus and apparently, I can make that happen on WordPress.
Once I figured out that I really don’t need to concern myself with how I’m going to monetize this site right now because It still needs work. At least I know EXACTLY what to do and what Not to do.
Take for instance the need for affiliate links on my site is where the money will come from…
Purchasing my domain is a sooner priority rather than later.
Having the merchants doing b2b with me is another thing to consider.
See Alibaba. Com
The right merchants meaning that whatever links to whatever products and services that will be displaying on your website… on my website with the condition that in the future, what I write… What You write about will relate, (in some way), to the content on your website and this website.
So in other words, everything should relate to what you are trying to sell.
Yes… Sales and marketing are how bloggers make their money.
If content Is key then writing is the door.
In some fashion or form… That includes product and service reviews. While all of the topics covered and written about should relate in some way to my niche.
In this case, it’s everything to do with Love including those bad habits and How to accept and adjust to the loss. Which is a direct effect of love?
In some cases, I consider myself a professional especially when it comes to losing. When I lost my first That’s Love For You website, I didn’t give up even though that was an option and I’m no quitter.
When it comes to ‘Love’, I’ve got a full dose of knowledge I would like to share.
Not everyone can handle loss, and having a little bit knowledge is more than helpful. Knowing where to look? Even better and its importance is undervalued even more so, it definitely makes you powerful.
In that when we could have given up that quest on building ‘the best site ever’, yet who are determined to do it on their own and press forward.
When it comes to smart moves, WordPress has a full dose of that knowledge.
I’m confident that the creators love to share that too.
So what’s the bottom line?
I love WordPress because it just works…
•I can save lots of money.
•I can learn as I go, (if I was a newbie).
•Everything is simple and easy to follow.
•It Free, the various theme and Landscape options are perfect.
•There’s an option to upgrade, (to a paid account), better opportunity to monetize my site.
Why is monetization necessary?
People have always wanted to make things easier for themselves. It has been apparent that it’s the only way to multitask. Which is obviously how all the boss players are experiencing their successfulness online.
If you haven’t heard the phrase “Content Is Key. ” then you will… Guess what? Monetization is the damned lock.
Your priority SHOULD be to dish out as much original created content as possible.
Of course, I’m recommending WordPress… Duh…
Write and publish As much as you can. As often as you can, (try a schedule like ). Because it is what you post to your websites, whether or not you are providing a service or selling a product displayed on your site. It has to be an attractive storefront. Upgrade later on… Simple.
Any business, (that’s organized, that’s successful and has its back office in complete order, would be successful because their Merchandise is Presented at their place of business Attractively… (Promotions)…
If people like what they see, they’ll stop to make a purchase or make efforts to buy.
Most of the time, consumers either kind of know what they want or already have a generally solid idea of what they want.
It’s The Same thing with monetized websites…
If your intention is to display merchant links on your website or display advertising like the pros, then your content should be helpful, interesting, spectacular, meaningful, valuable, up-to-date, recent and trendy to your readers…
Those merchants, on the other hand, are looking for how many unique visitors, who will actually click the link and buy. They judge you based on what they’re reading.
