WPKage is a free WordPress resource site.
Why is Mugambe Free?
As a beginner or small business, you often don’t have a large budget to spend on tools and training. However those two things are crucial for success.
I started Mugambe in 2018 with a single goal: create WordPress tutorials that are easy to understand and most importantly are 100% free.
My goal is to help small businesses compete with the big guys.
Simply put, I created Mugambe to offer users what i wish i had when we first started out.
How Is Mugambe Funded?
We have always believed in being honest and transparent with our audience. In our opinion, that’s the only way to build a community.
Running a website like Mugambe that helps users every month requires significant investment. Both on the server infrastructure part as well as on the content creation part.
Our team creates and maintains thousands of free written WordPress tutorials.
So yes, we have to make money otherwise we would have to shut the site down. Below are primary sources that fund WPKage.
We earn referral fees when you buy services from companies that we recommend.
We only recommend products that we believe will add value to our readers. We thorougly test and use all products that we recommend. All opinions are our own, and we do not accept payments for positive reviews.
This monetization method is called affiliate marketing. The biggest brands on the internet offer affiliate programs such as Amazon, eBay, Google, etc. Many of your favorite sites use affiliate marketing to pay the bills.
The only difference is that not everyone tell their users how they make money.
Sometimes you will see banner ads like these:
Other times, you will see a special link unique to each website that track referrals such as:
When you click on these link, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up buying the product, then they pay us a referral fee.
The referral fees vary for each product. For a WordPress book that you may buy at Amazon, we might earn $1. For a premium WordPress theme, we might earn $10.
