We’re really lucky as web publishers that there are very few costs involved in running our business. It’s about as close to pure profits as you can get!

One of the most common questions from someone just starting out is “How much is it going to cost me to buy a web site?” or “Is it expensive to be a web publisher?” or “How much money will I make?”

Here at Blogging Underground we are a community of web publishers who make a living doing this stuff as a business. Also some of us do it part-time on the side for a little extra money here and there!

Our goal is to make money by building simple web sites and getting lots of people to visit us!

We build our own web sites and blogs or hire outsourcers to help us set them up for us so we can make money promoting things from others, placing ads on our sites or selling our own stuff.

It’s easy to make money as a web publisher because the costs associated with what we do are next to nothing compared to starting a traditional business.

What are the costs???

If you already have a computer and an internet connection you’re in a great position to get started!

Basic costs for a brand new web site are very low and once the startup costs like hosting are covered you can add on additional sites for practically next to nothing.

The cost is around $10. per year for each domain you regsiter from a registrar such as GoDaddy.

It costs around $10. per month for a decent yet cheap WordPress web hosting account where you can have unlimited domains hosted with all the specs we demand from a host so we can do our web publishing thing.

If you have the right hosting account you won’t need to spend anything extra and you can install as many WordPress blogs as you want for free very easily from within your hosting account.

It’s easy to make your website look professional using one of the many good looking WordPress themes available for free.

If you write your own articles it doesn’t cost anything to publish new content on your site. Another option is to outsource the writing. You can pay around 5 to 7 dollars per article, or you can join a membership site for PLR Articles (Private Label Rights articles).

You can get 400 brand new Keyword Optimized PLR Articles each month from Article Underground for just $97. per month or you can save by getting the $399. annual deal (that’s $33.25 per month). In addition you can get back issue PLR Zips from Article Underground for $67. each (buy 2 get 1 free) at the Underground PLR Store.

To promote your site – all you really need to do is get good quality links pointing at your web pages. The links will help you get more traffic from the search engines for FREE!

To get access to high quality links you should invest in a membership like Blogging Underground to have access to a network of blogs which makes it easy for you and your outsourcers to do quick and easy linking to your web pages so you get lots of targeted free traffic from the search engines.

The time you will save scrounging for good links is well worth the low membership investment.

Blogging Underground is $67. per month (the first 7 days only $4.95) or you can save big with the $299. per year deal (that’s $24.91 per month or just 81 cents a day).

Almost everything else you could possibly need to run your online business is available for free – stuff like web stats analysis, spreadsheet apps, word processors and software applications won’t cost you a penny – unless of course you go for the premium software apps – but those are NOT necessary! You can get by without them!

All you really need is to start off on the right foot with buying a few domains and setting up hosting and a few key memberships and your monthly operating costs are next to nothing!

These are the primary costs associated for a web publisher who builds web sites.

Very few JOBS or work at home businesses can offer the flexibility that a web publisher enjoys.

Work at home at your own pace  – or work from any location you want!

Web publishing can be done almost anywhere there is an internet connection! 

Work only when you want to and any time you want a pay raise – simply build more sites and add more content! It’s that easy!


It’s simple math if you have a simple repeatable process – then – you can earn what you want!

The costs are very low and the payouts can be very big!

It’s not uncommon to make hundreds of dollars a day as a part-time web publisher building web sites here and there.

And if it’s THOUSANDS of dollars a day that you want – this web publishing business IS SCALEABLE – which means you simply increase the number of sites you build and you scale up your efforts adding content to your sites (or outsource) to earn a practically unlimited amount of earnings!

It’s just a matter of getting the proper foothold and setting up a simple repeatable process that makes this kind of business fun and easy to maintain & operate (and profitable too!).

  1. Hi Mike,

    I learned new way of doing things from your strategies specially the page not posts concept, I am already implementing it. I used to blog with no direction but not I am more aware of keyword research, site structure, etc.

    I also like the quality of the articles distributed by AU, and the BU blogs are awesome, you can choose where to publish based on the topic of your article.

    Hope to be more active in the forums…

  5. You never know what each day is going to bring. The important thing is being open and ready for anything. I used to wonder why some people are so easily amused, but I know now it’s because of people like Mike! Hit it boys!! http://wealthlpp.com/singing

  6. If the above comment is confusing, Hit it boys!! means when you click the /singing link above, hit the button and MIKE LEIBNER sings “Bicycle Built for Two” and you will be easily amused too!
