Do you need to earn some additional money to suppliment your income? Perhaps you want toreplace it entirely? Then learning how to make money with WordPress may be your ticket tofinancial freedom.

What makes WordPress so special? Plugins.

WordPress plugins are what I like to call supplemental tools. Once installed these little tools provide additional functionality not found at the core of WordPress and can extend WordPress’s web-design capabilities to do almost anything you can imagine. There are thousands of plugins. Some are free and some you pay for, but in my experience you can easily make do with the free ones. There are even plugins for Amazon and Adsense to make it easy for you to make money with WordPress.

Here is a list of WordPress plugins that I found to be a Must-Have:
