Making money online isn’t too hard, if you’re a web developer like me. You just sell yourself for a certain hourly rate and if you’re any good, projects will flow in. That’s what’s been happening for the last year for me at least. I started AlthA Web Design, and I’ve been swamped with work since. There’s only one problem with that: I’m lazy.
Basically, I want to make more money, online and offline, and do less work. Now I could increase my hourly rate of course, but there’s an inherent problem with hourly rates: they limit the amount of money you can make in an hour. So I’ve decided I’ll do some other stuff. First is monetizing this site, a little. In the sidebar you see 2 banners now, I will sell a maximum of 4 spots in total, and do some paid reviews. I will only do paid reviews for stuff that interests me and you, though, so it should all still be relevant for you, as a reader.
Next to that I’ll be working on more WordPress stuff, together with Adriaan Pienaar. He’s built some great Premium News Themes for WordPress, which we’ll be working on together. This is actually my dream scenario: making money on doing cool stuff with WordPress.
I’ve got some other tricks up my sleeve as well, also to do with WordPress, you’ll be seeing those roll out over the coming months!
