How Make Money with WordPress Minisites -Part 1

Updated on November 30, 2013


If you are an avid internet marketer or you are just new to making money online you may want to exploit the opportunities that the WordPress Minisites have to offer. Most people want a quick investment that does not cost them much in terms of capital while the return on the investment is quick and timely. If this is one of the things that you are looking for then the WordPress Minisites may be good fit investments for you.

Why WordPress Minisites?

You may be probably wondering why you would invest in the WordPress Minisites and as oppose to other investments online. The answer is simple they are easy and cheap to create and maintenance is very easy you do not need to know the code jargon to do a thing or two using WordPress. The simplicity in design and the drag and drop design nature of WordPress make it easy for even the most non code savvy person to enjoy every bit of creating their own sites as well as minting their sites on daily basis by content publishing, plug-in installation and any other task that may seem necessary. Having answered that question lets move to the next stage of developing your own WordPress Minisites.

Owning Your Site

As you all know that the best investment online is one that you make your own. There are a number of free hosted sites like blogger, typepad and weebly but they come with a lot of limitation both in design and manipulation. The worst that can happen is getting your blog deleted by the host. I have had enough complains of blogs set on blogger being deleted by Google. You don’t want to be a victim of this …so the only way out we purchase a domain for about $7 and hosting package about $ 8 that will allow you to have unlimited sites on your account. SO your initial investment will be less than 20 bucks…….within months you will be making $ 100 and above depending with your effort. So this is a worthy investment….take time and think.

Buying / Registering a Domain Name

Registering a domain is one of the easiest steps in creating a WordPress Minisites all you need is to go to the best domain sale website that is Godaddy and just follow the following steps.

1) Search your Preferred Domain name. – Usually to be on the safe side it is important that you do a Keyword research instead of buying a domain blindly I would like to illustrate this with an example below:

Example Suppose we want to make a WordPress Minisite that will primarily promote the Amazon Products how do we go about this:

a) We identify the Product we want to Promote- Example we want to promote Amazon Kindle with our WordPress Niche site.You go to AMAZON and establish how worth the offer is and if we promote it is it likely to give quick ROI.

b) Our Second concern is getting the right Keyword for the Amazon Product that we will use in our domain. So we get to use another great tool to increase our chances of making our ROI quicker the tool is Google Keyword Tool. We want to establish the pattern in which people search in search Engines for the keyword and possibly make our domain suit that keyword. Right? Here is a pictorial illustration of my steps

Product that We Intend to Promote in the Wordpress Minisite
Product that We Intend to Promote in the Wordpress Minisite
Analyze the Keyword and Select the Best
Analyze the Keyword and Select the Best

c) Our KEYWORD Analysis is as follows if we go for keyword word 1 we are doomed since we cannot beat that competition so we check out an choose amongst the three. We eliminate Keyword 2 and 4 since they have more competition so we are left with keyword 3 as our best. We therefore go to buy a domain that has our keyword incorporated to make our seo easier. So we go for something like

You can now go to Godaddy and search for the domain and then make sure you buy the closest match if the domain we are looking for is not available.

      @ Marisa, there was some problem with almost every corner of the internet after Panda Example most of my hubs were ranked in Page one but they fell badly. Success lies in the SEO plan that I will reveal in the coming series of my hubs on Making Money with Wordpress Minisites

      Hi Kiwiwi

      Thank you compliment. Actually Wordpress does not offer hosting of the Minisites you will have to buy a hosting Package that offers you unlimited number sites. Actually is cost me less than $10 and I have hosted a dozen of my sites there. Please read the part two- Make money with Wordpress Minisites Part 2 For you to get to know how to host these Minisites.If you have further concerns let me know :)
