The Concept: Create Wordpress Themes and sell footer links to advetisers over online auction. The links the webmasters buy are placed in the footer section of the Theme. The Theme is then promoted. Users download and install the Theme and the webmasters get backlinks. Average Reported Income: $100 - $200 per Wordpress Theme. The Method: Webmasters are ever looking to get their website placed higher in the SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages). To carry this out, they ought to have a lot of backlinks to the website that are built up over time. One way to get backlinks over time is to pay you to include a link to their website in the Wordpress Themes that you create. You sell the available link spots for the footer of your Wordpress Theme over online auction at the Digital Point Forums. After auction closes, you collect payment from top bidders. They pay you in Paypal, you afterward add their links into the footer of your Wordpress Theme as a "Sponsored Link". What you put in the footer looks similar to this: Proudly powered by Wordpress | Design by: Designer Link Sponsored By: Sponsored Link #1 | Sponsored Link #3 |Sponsored Link #3 As you can see above, you also have the option to sell the "Designed by" link, which would take in the total amount to be 4 links. Always sell your designer link for a little bit more as opposed to your other links. You can always Google for "Create Wordpress Theme" and find many other larger amount of pages that explain how to do obtain a theme. Finally, you to promote the Theme.Zip up your theme, create screen captures of it, and submit it to the following Wordpress Theme submission websites: Code: hxxp://forums.digitalpoint.c0m hxxp://w3.bloggingthemes.c0m hxxp://w3.freelayouts.c0m hxxp://w3.freewordpressthemes.c0m hxxp://w3.namepros.c0m hxxp://themebot.c0m hxxp://w3.themesbase.c0m hxxp://board.themevibes.c0m hxxp://web2feel.c0m hxxp://w3.webtalkforums.c0m hxxp://w3.wpthemesfree.c0m hxxp://w3.wpskins.0rg hxxp://w3.webmaster-talk.c0m hxxp://w3.wpthemedatabase.c0m hxxp://themeboss.c0m hxxp://w3.wordpressthemebase.c0m hxxp://w3.wptmp.c0m hxxp://w3.talktheme.c0m hxxp://ithemes.0rg hxxp://w3.blogzoop.c0m Summary Overview: 1. Have a domain and hosting to showcase your Wordpress Themes. 2. Create a new Wordpress Theme. 3. Install the Theme into a subdirectory of your website as a "Demo". 4. Go to DP Forums > Buy, Sell, Trade > 5. Create an post showcasing your Theme and asking for bids for the footer links. 6. People will bid for the links, auction-style. 7. Close the thread 72 hours later. 8. Contact the winning bidders for payment by PM. 9. Receive payment. Add their links to your Wordpress Theme. 10. Promote the theme, by submitting it to Wordpress Theme submission sites. 11. Recontact thriving bidders, let them know it is completed. Final Word: I am always suprised when I read regarding how Wordpress users are so ticked off that they downloaded a free Wordpress Theme and discover that it has sponsored links. They get upset, so be forwarned. Sometimes, people think that the authors should create the themes for the hell. Also note, such technique has carried on considered "Grey Hat", because Google does not approve of webmasters purchasing links in order to get higher list in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages). However, these are Google's rules; there is nothing against the law about working at this.
