WordPress is a tool many people like to use these days, to create their websites, including me. With WordPress a lot of the complicated codings, in order to create a website, are done in the background for the user.
In other words, it is simplifies our tasks and we don’t need to use our brains as much and learn the boring world of coding. Although you may still use the ‘text’ format to enter codes, WordPress simplified the typing for authors, by styling it in a Microsoft Word type of layout.
So this can be incredibly useful if you want to know how to you can be selling products online, through your own website.
If you ever consider creating your own website and don’t have much knowledge, I strongly encourage you to use WordPress as it’s quick easy and free to use. How to make money selling online with WordPress is now easier than you can imagine.

So there really are no excuses not to get involved with this software if you’re thinking of creating your own homepage.
How to sell with WordPress
So if you are wondering how this tool can help you to sell items online, there are many options but there is only one direct way it will be done.
If you would like to sell or promote an item to sell on your website with WordPress, you simply create your site around that specific item.
Once you are done you can add a link on your site that redirects them to the payment of the good your customer would like to purchase. For affiliates for example, you would add your affiliate link, that redirects your visitor to the product creators website.
Millions of these websites have been created by now and they are multiplying by the minute. There are a ton of plugins to use to help selling your items. For instance I like to use the StatPress plugin, which allows me to see how many visitors fall on my website and through what search engine.
Where to learn?
If you are worried about not being very tech savvy and you will be put off by struggling to use this program, I can reassure you there are millions of sources on the internet that can teach you in a few minutes.
I mostly learned all my skills by trying out a few things here and there and seeing how that turns out. If worse comes to worst you can always delete a post you’ve created.

Word of Advice
If I could give you one advice on selling things online through WordPress, is that you should be passionate about your product. The passion will shine through and reflect on the content you publish.
Also add a lot of visuals if relevant. I like to read and give my eyes a break occasionally by looking at what I’m reading up about. Make sure the images you use aren’t protected by copyright or something.
