The Essential WordPress website
Let me help you develop your brand so that you can begin to expand beyond your teaching responsibilities. Whether you want to consult, promote your eBook, share your upcoming webinar, or write about your trip, having a website is key to getting you started.
For $199, I will create a basic website with 3 add-on pages (your “about” page, plus two additional pages for whatever you wish to promote), Akismet spam blocker, and essential plugins you will need.
Choose from these five basic templates on WordPress: Expound, Balance, Quattro, Dinky, or the WordPress default themes of Twenty Twelve or Twenty Thirteen. (This website uses Expound.) Using the basic templates to start will work better until you have more blog posts and can add things like slider images to the top of your page, membership site plugins, affiliate links, etc. If all of this is a foreign language to you, no worries…you will learn, and I’m here to help.
Let’s get started!
(1) Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for this service.
(2) Decide on your domain name. Keep it short (under 10 letters if possible), with no dashes or hyphens, and DO use a .com extension.
(3) Go to Blue Host using my affiliate link below, register your domain name, and sign up for a year of service. (You are able to sign up for longer if you like…that is up to you.) There is a sale currently for $3.95/month.
Why use my affiliate link? This provides me an affiliate commission, which means that I can offer you a website at $199. So, this is a necessary step. Using my link does not cost you anything extra.
In addition, through Blue Host, you get your first domain for free.
(4) Sign up for my email list on the right side bar. I know I will already have it when you email me, but this allows me to send you special offers after the work is done.
Ready, set, go!
