f you have used WordPress, you must be aware of one thing – you can’t run your blog without using at least a few plugins, right? Everyone uses plugins to add extra features that help run a WordPress blog successfully. There are thousands of plugins available in WordPress – some of them are absolutely free and the remaining are premium ones.
Are you a web designer or developer? Yes! Then you can make money by developing WordPress Themes. You don’t have to be a top class designer or coder to design a great looking WordPress theme, but you should definitely know what you are designing for your targeted audience. At the end of the day, you should know to whom you are designing your theme for, or else you will end up finding zero audience for your theme.
One of the easiest ways to make money online using WordPress is to offer consulting services. It can be done easily only if you are good at WordPress – be it creating custom designs for clients, or teaching WordPress tutorials to beginners or advanced users.
Make sure you have a great portfolio if you are thinking of making a passive income stream by using this method. One of the easiest ways to build a great portfolio to increase your income is to offer your consulting services (or select products you’ve created) for free to some of the top influential bloggers in the WordPress community. Ask them to give feedback if they are satisfied with your work or to share a review of your services on their blog. This can really boost your online sales, as testimonials from top bloggers is great social proof.
