Cashing In On The WordPress Niche With An Authority Site

Way to fail #2: Expect to get rich quicklyIf you’re looking for a great niche to jump into and start making money I highly recommend you take a look at the WordPress niche! This is a niche that has been steadily becoming more and more profitable every year, and there is no sign of it finding it’s cap or seeing a decline in sales.

A great thing to do to start making money in this niche is to create an authority site with in it.

What’s an authority site?

An authority site is a major website that contains tons of information on the niche that its in. You’ll find articles, reports, reviews, product recommendations, and more on these kinds of sites and they can be monetized in many ways too.

All you need to do to create one of these sites in the WordPress niche is to…

1. Get a domain name related to the niche. A lot of people have gotten in trouble for using WordPress in a domain name so I would go with something with WP (short for WordPress) in.

2. Get hosting for your domain name and get it live and online.

3. Once you have your domain name and your hosting you can then start building your site. I suggest you install WordPress on your blog and use it to start building your authority site. There are some great themes out there that will allow you to build your site so do some research to find that perfect them.

4. After you have everything setup you can then start adding content to start building your authority site.

I recommend you start with articles because they are easy to write and there are tons of places that you can get others to write articles for you too. Just search for freelance sites and you’ll find several people you can pay to write articles for you. Just make sure they are of the highest quality! I recommend posting an article every two to three days. If you can do every day then go for it.

If you can create video tutorials on how to do things with WordPress I recommend you do that too. Just make sure at the end of your video you’re trying to sell the viewer something. Posting a video tutorial each week is a great schedule to follow. You can also get people at freelance sites to create video tutorials for you also.

Reviewing products related to WordPress and posting those reviews to your site will also help your site become an authority site and make people a lot more likely to buy from you. You could review a product each month via video or text and post it to your blog. If you can do it more often for instance weekly that would be even better!

Another way to get content is to go to product owners in the WordPress niche and ask them if they have anything that they would like to give your people in exchange for you linking to their site. People love free stuff and you can create an amazing fan base by giving stuff away!

The key here is to continually add content to your site and monetize that content with your affiliate links, links to your products, pay per click ads, and you can even sell advertising spots on your site once you’re getting.

By building an authority site people will see you as an authority in the WordPress niche, flock to your site, and buy stuff from you, so what are you waiting for? Go get started on your own authority site in the WordPress niche!

    Thanks for some refreshing and honest content, It’s nice to see some one actually give good content rather then shoving affiliate links everywhere. Subscribed.

    Excellent idea Alex!

    I am new to wordpress and I don’t have a clue. Looking for plugins is a nightmare. Search for one and find a hundred. Which one is good, which one actually works without having to add bits of code – something I am also clueless about.

    I can’t set myself up as an authority, but I would be locked on to someone who was! I have been searching for some how to video’s. It’s so much easier when you can see how to do things.
