The first steps in making money with wordpress

Everyone hear tons of stories and experiences about people making millions online jusy by blogging. Yes, it's true, some people have good enough material on their sites that it attracts tons of visitors. But before you can even think about making money on your site, first think about your site as a whole and ask your self these questions.

  • What is the goal of my website?
  • Why will people come back to my website?
  • What is the target age and sex of my website?
  • What will set my site apart from others sites?

I'm sure I could come up with hundreds more, but that is a good start of questions that will need answered. I'm no blogging expert but I've had my share of success on the web and I want to share with you some of the secrets and tips I've gained over the years.

Just like in the South Park episode of the underpants gnomes, most people have no idea how to get from step 1, create website; step 2; step 3, profit. It's not that simple.
