Do you want to subsidize your current income or even replace it? Then it is important to familiarize yourself on how to make money with WordPress and the many tools that will help you grow your online business.

WordPress is a FREE Content Management System (CMS) for building websites. Originally used as a blogging platform it has evolved into an amazing piece of programming for building websites as well. Many small business owners and online marketers prefer using WordPress to establish their online presence because of the speed in which one can have a fully functioning website up and running. Plus it is so easy to use that you can build the entire website yourself. It literally only takes minutes, and with the millions of free themes to choose from the possibilities are endless. Another important feature that I love about WordPress and what I want to share with you are the plugins.

WordPress plugins add functions and features not found at the core of the program, and extend the functionality of WordPress so you can customize your website to do almost anything you can imagine. Understanding how to make money with WordPress starts with understanding the role these plugins have in maximizing the effectiveness of your WordPress-built website. The overwhelming number of plugins will make your head spin, so it is important to know which plugins you will need to get started.

Below is my list of Must-Have plugins:
