by

With the advent of blogging, there has evolved different ways to monetize your website. We explore a few ways to make money on the internet using a simple Wordpress site.

Introduction

Most students enter a web design class not knowing there are easy ways to turn web design into a career or as a way to make extra money on the side.

In this lesson we look at several ways to identify and choose a web site niche that will have the potential to be monetized. The niche should have images and content that is shareable using social media. Students will research and choose a niche that meet specific criteria that will be later used to develop a web site.
