How I make money here
Several years ago I got interested in building a website. I wast the owner of a small restaurant and decided that it needed a website.
After talking to people who could do that for me and found out about there prices I thought I would give it a try myself.
That was back in 2007 and started a whole new adventure in my life. It changed my life and I sold my restaurant later and now I live of the money I make online with this and other websites.
This is what some people call being a “blogger” and I guess that is what I am.
If you have the same question, or just are curious, YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. I will answer the most asked questions on how to make money with a blog.
When you land on a website and you read that it contains “affiliate links” you have basically found how that site makes money. The do what is called affiliate marketing.
This is a totally free way for bloggers to make money.
It is also the way I make money with this website.
In short, affiliate marketing is finding things you are interested in, share them on your website and make a commission if someone buys that product.
There are many other ways of making money but this is how I make money here on bettergrills.com.
This is basically what I do all day. I go “shopping” on Amazon to see what people are looking for and than share it here on my blog.
Finding and writing about things that OTHER people should buy. I think I have a pretty awesome job!
I will answer a few questions that most people ask me when they find out that I work for myself as a blogger from home and make money that way. I love to answer these questions because I don’t anyone who could not use extra money.
Anyone can have a blog like mine to add some extra money to their wallet!
It is also very nice to be your own boss!
I work when I can and not when I have to!!. I can spend a lot more time with my family.
How Much Can You Make With Blogging?
It is perfectly natural that everyone ask me HOW MUCH you can make blogging and how much I make wit this blog. The second question is always how long it took me to start making money.
The firs thing you have to know is that it did not happen overnight.
Unless you win the lottery there are no “become a millionaire” things.
But it happened pretty fast.
How Much Does Blogging Cost?
That is one of the other questions I get a lot.
“Nice, BUT How much did you have to spend to start this website?”
This is a normal question but there is one thing when I answer this question. NO ONE believes me when I tell them how much it cost to start a blog like this.
Ready for the answer?
Starting a blog cost about $5 a month!!
Yes, that is not a typo!! FIVE DOLLAR A MONTH!!
Really, that is all it takes to start your own website and make money with it.
Is There Help To Get Started?
When I read this question I assume you are looking for FREE HELP! If you have to pay for it my statement of $5 a month would not be true.
There is a ton of help available for free! One of the best resources I know and have learned most of the things I use here comes from a website called WP-beginner.com and it contains a lot of FREE INFORMATION. You can find it here! https://www.wpbeginner.com/guides/
Let Me Help you!
There are basically two things you need to start a website like I have here.
- A so called hosting company
- A domain name
This is where your website will live and be put on the internet.
The domain name of this website is bettergrills.com. I have registered this name and no one in the whole world can use this anymore.
At the cheapest company I use this will cost you $15.95 each year and Under $4 A month for the hosting. I TOLD YOU!! ABOUT $5 A MONTH TOTAL!!
Finding a name for your website is not hard. Just type in your idea and see if it is available. If yes, register it. If not, try a new option.
