Yes, you can make money online using the platform God gave you–communication!
The Lord can not only use your writing and speaking to get your message out but to also provide for you an additional income, so you don’t have to trade your hours (usually long) for dollars (usually limited). This is true of me, and can be true for you as well.
The best way I’ve found is to start a blog.
The beauty of blogging is that it doesn’t have to take time away from the church you serve or your family to build a sizable and scalable business.
You’ve got it in you if you’re already a church leader.
There are ways to do this with free hosted options like Blogger, Joomla or WordPress.com, but you will get the most control and freedom by using the self-hosted version of WordPress, which is WordPress.org. I use this on my blog here and most serious bloggers use do as well.
Start blogging by setting up your hosting.
My five top reasons for choosing Bluehost:
- Affordability (depending on the plan you get, it could be $3.95 to $7.95 per month).
- 24/7 USA Support and Customer Service.
- 99.9% Up-time Reliability.
- Unlimited everything from email to bandwidth and storage space.
- Values. Bluehost prohibits all adult content. This standard is strictly enforced and deletes sites that violate it. Most all of the popular hosting services allow porn on their servers. Bluehost doesn’t.
Please understand that I am a Bluehost affiliate. This means the company pays us a commission every time someone signs up through one of my links. Although all hosting services have similar affiliate programs, I recommend Bluehost because I truly believe they offer the best hosting available, for the reasons stated above.
Now for the house: Install WordPress!
If hosting is your real estate, then the blogging platform is your house.
