How to make money through my own website?

4 replies
Hi.

Okay, so I'm an influencer and have finally launched my own wordpress site even though I have no idea how to use it. Just trying to make the buttons appear is taking weeks and weeks of googling with a dead-end... I feel like I'm wasting a lot of time.

I know there are several ways to make money through a website but can you guys tell me which would be the best if the traffic is coming from social media?

For example, if I'm giving a pop up to collect emails and then send out freebies, how do I exactly get those plugins? I can't find any which seem to work..

I also want next and previous buttons on my posts and place banner ads above them.. But I can't even seem to make the next/prev buttons happen.

I want to place banner ads (don't have adsense yet because my site is new) which forums do I go to know how and where to apply those banners?

I don't want short cuts, but just some guidance. If I leave the site blank for a month I'll be paying for hosting again without even starting anything. All the questions I ask on wordpress.org are answered by people who say this isn't a part of their support.. So don't know where to learn all of this.


PS: I don't know anything about coding..

    Optin master is good for a plugin.

    If your traffic is coming from social, try and entice them to learn more with valuable content on your site, but not on your social accounts.

    You can place those banners in the html footer codes of WP. Shoot me a message if you want help.

    .
    Get the site live anyway don't leave it blank. You will make progress that way. Go to Word Press and install contact forum 7 if it is still available that is a free plugin. Get them to sign up on it to capture their e-mail. Or you can go the paid root. You could try going to constant contact or awber and sign up for a free month. You have to follow the instructions they post on their websites. If not go to youtube and look up videos how to set up a wordpress web-site. Using plugins or installing constant contact or aweber.

    Wordpress can be daunting for a newbie. Have you considered a different site builder which is more user friendly?

    Just trying to make the buttons appear
    Which buttons?

    You need an autoresponder. After you set up your form you add the code snippet they provide to your website. Then the form appears.

    Common ARs:

    Aweber
    Getresponse
    MailChimp
    Constant Contact

    There are many others but these are probably the most widely used.
    I also want next and previous buttons on my posts and place banner ads above them.. But I can't even seem to make the next/prev buttons happen.
    Which theme are you using? You may find this feature on some themes. You can also do it very simply with links, like this:

    Write "previous" where you want it on the left side of the page. Write "next" on the right. Now take the URL of your last post and hyperlink "previous" with it. Then do "next" with the URL of the next post.

    I want to place banner ads (don't have adsense yet because my site is new) which forums do I go to know how and where to apply those banners?
    Simple banner code:

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.freejuicerecipes.com/tip-us/">
      <img src="http://www.freejuicerecipes.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/tip-jar-branded.png" alt="tip free juice recipes">
    </a>
    The first URL is the destination page. When someone clicks the banner, this is where they will go.

    The second URL is the image location. In "Media" click on an image and on the next screen click "edit image." In the top right you will see the image URL.

    When I first started I copied this code and then I would just replace the URLs with which ever ones I wanted to use.

    The "alt" is just for optimization and while recommended it is optional.

    If you have more specific questions, don't hesitate to ask.

    Brent
