WP Central Hub Manage Multiple Sites With No Monthly Fees
We've spoken in the past about Manage WP, and CMS Commander, now there is a plugin (with no monthly fee) that you can install. It's not quite as powerful as the previously mentioned sites (no backup management, cloning, etc). but if you are looking to manage posts, pages, and plugins from a single login, then WP Central Hub is for you. This plugin allows you to add pages, posts, plugins, and themes from one location. You don't have to remember all those passwords and login locations, you can do it all from one location. This video show you how easy it is.
Profit From Your Expertise with Udemy
This site pays for all the hosting and streaming fees, provides tools for managing your content, and they boast 500,000 students with 1,000,000 visitors per month. All you need to do is create a course to show off your expertise. The class needs to be a minimum of an hour long with 60% of the course being video (you can create handouts, etc and deliver those as well). The site has forums, and other resource to help facilitate learning. I looked at it about six months ago and they seem to have improved since then (it was a little clunky now, but now things seem to have a bit more polish).
What does it cost? It's free. If you charge for your class they take 30% with most classes ranging from $29 – $99. I've got a ton of material, so I'm going to put it up on the site and see how it does.
Here is a video that show you just how easy it is to create a course.
