Support » Everything else WordPress » Monetizing a site

  • I find myself wanting to make a point before I ask my inquiry. I hope that’s okay. I was previously immersed in wordpress.org for many years and understood that as the way to build business websites with greater freedom and better tools than what dot com (wordpress.com) offers. Since 2021, I no longer feel that. I look at articles that exist, from 2022, and all strike me as operating under older information. As a developer who’s been with several shared hosting providers, I think they were all fine, but none were great in terms of support. I continuously found a significant part of developing a site is the maintenance and security considerations that come after launch. I find dot com is now superior on those fronts. Granted it depends on the plan one signs up with, but I found that true with shared hosting. If anyone reading this disagrees, I’m interested in your perspective.

    With that point made, I am looking to monetize a site I’ve built and feel I can easily accomplish it with the premium blocks and Stripe account. Yet, I do find those are limited and so I see a (membership) plugin as likely needed when I scale up. My basic question is do I go for the basic monetization with little concern for scaling up until that is truly warranted, or do I explore and plan to implement the extended tools for monetizing, more immediately?

    I think a consultant may be the person to ask such a question but was hoping dot org could speak to this in way to help me further along. I am curious what learning curve is like for membership plugin? Super easy, or plan to take a week or so to truly understand the capabilities of such tools before implementing them?

    Thanks for reading, I look forward to replies.

    Thanks for reading, I look forward to replies.

    I am sorry but this is not a topic for this site and I am closing this topic.

    All topics here are either about WordPress core support, support for WordPress add-ons such as themes and plugins, WordPress code for development and most importantly WordPress users.

    A topic about “Monetizing a site” is not any of those and not for this site. Please consider asking on a different site instead.
