How to Make Money with WordPress in 48 hours

If you’re stumbling on this article, it’s because you’re looking to make money with WordPress, and probably within 48 hours time.

However, the reality is, that a lot of articles with this same title, tell you how to set WordPress up and some general money making tips. In this article, you’ll learn some ways to set up your website within 48 hours, in order to make money with WordPress.

Is it possible to make money with WordPress?

It is definitely possible to make money with WordPress. However, if you’re looking to cash out big, within 48 hours, that might be a whole different story. The reason is that you have to put some effort first, in order to prepare your site to become a money making machine, and have patience, after you’ve put that effort in.

A lot of people want to make money fast, and that’s alright to feel that way, but in actuality, making money with WordPress will take some time.

The key to making money with WordPress, is to build a site that not only can make you money while you sleep, but also provide extra forms of income, so you increase your chances of earning moolah.

What are some ways to make money with WordPress?

  • Write blog posts and get sponsored.
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Become a virtual writer for another blog.
  • Ads
  • Teach people
  • Sell your own stuff

Write blog posts and get sponsored

If you love to write about services or items that you like using, there’s always a way to get your blog posts sponsored. You can simply approach companies that you want to write about, and ask them if they offer any blog sponsorship opportunities. Please note, that in most cases, your blog needs to have been established for some time (like a minimal 6 months), and you have to have content that clearly looks like it’s been read and interacted with.

This is often a more difficult opportunity to tackle, because you have to build a blog following. Often the companies interested in this will want to know how much website traffic you receive, as well as some of your website’s related social network handle stats. You will more than likely want to organize a media kit page on your website, so you can quickly share it with potential sponsors.

Once a company has agreed to collaborate with you, then you simply write the post, include any necessary information (like pics, or links, or specific keywords), and then publish the article to your site. Often, you’ll need to tell your social network followers too. Once the company sees that you’ve filled your end of the agreement, they will release payment to you.

Affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is basically selling other people’s items and services, and getting a percentage of the profit, as a referral fee. Every service or item has different prices, and referral percentages, so it’s up to you on how to sell these items. Often, you sign up for a program and are given a referral link to add to your site or social network channels. It’s best to pick affiliate programs that are related to your site, and what you’re more comfortable talking about, as that will make selling far easier.

With affiliate marketing programs, you don’t always get paid right away. Sometimes you have to meet a minimum payment threshold or wait a number of days for the payment to be released to you.

Become a virtual writer for another blog

There are a lot of websites out on the Interwebs that are in dire need of writers. If you love to write, there’s probably a blog or two out there that are more than happy to accept your articles. For example, on We Work Remotely, there’s some content jobs in their remote sales and marketing job listings. Even LinkedIn and Facebook have job listings from various companies that are desperately looking for content creators.


Your website has a lot of space that can be prime spots for advertising. You can either join ad network programs or even sell your own ad spots on your site. Please note that if you do join any ad networks, they usually have a minimum requirement for accepting new websites. For example, some ad networks ask that your site be at least 90 days old, and have over 21 non-sponsored posts, before applying to their program.

Teach people

If you have a particular talent, like playing an instrument or painting, and want to teach people, you can certainly do that, using WordPress. You can set up lessons, and people can sign up to pay to learn from you.

Sell your own stuff

If you have items or services to sell, you can use WordPress to sell them. WordPress has some pretty powerful ecommerce plugins that you can use, so you can successfully sell your work.

So, of all of the ways to make money with WordPress, here’s a couple methods that you can set up within 48 hours, and eventually bring in residual income. Both of these methods are pretty solid and with WordPress hosting like Verpex, will make sure your websites are stable and reliable for your customers.

  • Build a membership learning site
  • Build a print on demand shop and sell items like t-shirts, hats, posters, and more.

Both of these solutions require WooCommerce, in order to help process your payments from customers.

Build a membership learning site

If you’ve got something to teach, you should try it. If you use WordPress, WooCommerce, and the Ultimate Member Plugin, plus some of their paid add-ons (ex: Ultimate Member WooCommerce add-on).

With these plugins, you can set up your lessons, and then add a user role to each lesson, so only paid members with that set role can access them.

Build a print on demand shop and sell items like t-shirts, hats, posters, and more.

Build a print on demand shop with Printify

If you like to dabble in creating funny phrases and adding those to clothes, you can start a print on demand shop using WordPress, WooCommerce, and Printify. Printify is a company that already has the tshirts, posters, hats, and any material you’d like to print your design to. It’s free to sign up and put together your design. You even get to set your prices!

In conjunction with their free Printify for WooCommerce add-on, you can sync your Printify store directly into your WooCommerce store, and sell to your heart’s content.

In Summary

So, now that you have some idea of what you can do in order to make money with WordPress in 48 hours, it’s time to set up your website on Verpex hosting and try some of these methods. In the meantime, I have a Slideshare presentation that is free, and all about Making Money with WordPress for Bloggers. It even includes a lot of links to resources that you might find handy.
