    Hey Bryan,

    Hope you're doing well and thanks for your question!

    We actually have an awesome blog article on some different ways to utilize multisite: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/wordpress-multisite-guide/

    Be sure to read the comments there as well, some interesting stuff in them :slight_smile:

    The most common way to make money with a multisite is to run a premium blogging network type service. So, members can sign up for a site for free then pay for upgrades to their site. Like Edublogs. In fact, Many plugins we provide here on the WPMU DEV side are used over at Edublogs, and some were developed specifically for Edublogs then re-packaged to be more user friendly here.

    Pro Sites will be the base plugin you need if you are going to run a pay to blog style network.

    Read that first article there and let us know if you have any further questions :slight_smile: we're more than happy to help and provide some guidance anywhere we can!

    All the best,
    Tyler

    Hi Byryan,

    @Tyler Postle is right on there. Read that blog to get an idea of what multisite can do and how it has been used successfully.

    Here is another article about creating business ideas that should also be helpful.

    Once you have an idea you are going to go for, remember, you need to do your marketing and sales. No matter how great the idea and product you need to get people to show up and take some action on your site.

    So also research marketing successes as well. I am wishing you well on your quest. Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
