The American Picker Style Website [how to make money with a american pickers website]

How do the American Pickers sell all that stuff they find on TV? Probably on their own website, they are based out of Tennessee, and not everyone can visit the showroom, so how do they sell all that stuff? It may surprise you how easy it is! Let me show you!

All you need is:

    • a WordPress blog. – FREE
    • a PayPal account. – FREE
    • HOSTING for the WordPress blog – not free 🙁 but less than $5 bucks to have an online business!

And one simple Paypal shopping cart WordPress plugin and your in business, for less than one hundred dollars. You can start listing anything and everything for sale on your own. No eBay fees, you will be making your own money online. Open 7 days a week 24 hour a day just like a online garage sale.

 

Example of stuff you can sell on your WordPress blog:

This is a Skull box, I painted on a old cigar box that I purchased for just $2.00 from the cigar store around the corner from me, I love painting boxes! Now this is the important part> If you notice directly under this is picture is a buy it now button. You can sell anything!

<- you can buy this box.

So if you click on this and goto the right hand side of my blog, you will see the product in the shopping cart.

I made the price $100.00 dollars so people will stop buying it! 🙂 But in the admin setting on the WordPress blog you can add shipping and handling. *With little short codes, no programming required.

How do people find it on the web?

That part is easy too!

3 easy ways to make money with WordPress

If you are looking to stand out apart from your competition, WordPress is certainly the platform to get you there. Not only is it user friendly but there are so many things to customize and make personable in regards to your specific niche. WordPress feels like more fun than work, when you get the hang of it.

Most people who are just starting in a business website or blog are looking to earn any way that they can. WordPress allows you to do this very thing in a variety of ways. Once you have decided on a plan of action, it is merely time to get a website or blog up and running. This is the easy and/or fun part of things.

Let’s go over a few of the basics in regards to putting a great website together on WordPress. These tips are set fourth in general with no specific niche in mind and are almost fool proof for every niche.

Traffic- it is important build a social network of blogging buddies via, comments, guest posting and activity. It is a huge plus to not only have readership and their activeness on your blog but other influential members of the blogging community.
Research and understanding of your niche. Research is a critical aspect of blogging. When starting a blog or web based business, it is important for you to be considered legit and an expert within your specific niche. You will need to stay on top of the latest news and trends within the niche.
Consistency- this is another critical aspect of your new site. Readers will not frequent your site if you the same unpolished content up for months at a time. You need fresh, crisp, quality and interactive posts. Posting daily is not necessary though okay but, it is important to keep a strict schedule for posting new content. The search engines like this.
Optimize- keywords, keywords, keywords. Keywords are a large part in how the search engines find you and report back to an internet searcher. Back linking and proper placement of keywords within your article and its title, your site may be easier to find.

Once you have the concept down, you are ready to jump into figuring out how to earn. Whether or not, you provide a service, specific product or are strictly an informative website, these three ways of earning on WordPress can work for you.

1. Adsense- One effective way to earning money regularly is through Google Adsense. This program posts relevant ads onto your site. If you have a steady and large amount of visitors, this will be very lucrative. If you have a brand new website or are still gaining traffic, you are still able to make money but it may be lower numbers until you build up more traffic. The Google Adsense program pays per visitor click from your website.
2. Affiliate Marketing- another lucrative way to earn money through WordPress. Though, you are selling other people’s products this way, you have the ability to choose the products in most cases like with Amazon Associates. This allows you to keep everything related to your niche and not turn potential readers in a state of confusion or completely different direction. To be a top earner, traffic to your blog will be essential.
3. Direct Advertisements- advertising directly for another company or individual can be highly lucrative. You again, will be selling and promoting someone else’s products or services, you have the potential to make a great income from doing so.

No matter the method(s) you choose to earn through WordPress, you can make each work specifically for you. And, don’t worry, if you are selling homemade orange juice, the advertisements would not be about foot cream. It is all relivent to your site.

Also, it takes great readership of a site to make top profit. The more clicks you get the more money making potential that you have to earn. WordPress is set up so that it is very user friendly and comfortable to move about. The settings of ads, etc will be important and WordPress can help you to eliminate a cluttered site. Everything is one hundred percent customizable. Once your site is set up, set your schedule for posts and sit back, WordPress can do the rest.

I wave goodbye to another WordPress project

html

I let another website go! Sticking to the plan to only develop a limited amount of website. Recently, I decided to part with HTMLpostings.com, in about four days from now the domain will expire.

One thing that I find very interesting about being able to develop WordPress blogs, if I get an idea, I can have another WordPress blog up and running and making money in a few days. The best part is the cost for my troubles, is under ten dollars! The HTMLpostings.com website was on the back shelf for a while, but now, I am letting it go, but with a little hesitation. Because if you know how to use PhotoShop, this business idea would be very profitable, with almost no money invested!

My idea for the website was to make HTML advertisements for online classified postings for small businesses that post on Craigslist. I would charge $10-$25 dollars and on the website. I would  make a little “How to Guide” that explains how to insert html posing into online classifieds using Photobucket or any image hosting website. It would cost nothing to market the website. You would just reply to the posting placed on Craigslist telling them how they can save money and time, and give a better presentation of their business, and the best part, its free!
