Blog Setup Service
In just 2 to 7 days, depending on the package you choose, you’ll get a great looking WordPress blog or website with expert guidance from a WordPress tech expert experienced in online marketing.
This blog setup service gives you a fast and easy way to start blogging without all the technical headaches and confusion, and without the expense of hiring a web designer.
By creating your blog with a professional, pre-designed Genesis theme from StudioPress.com I am able to keep this blog setup service affordable for everyone from only $99 for the basic blog setup package to $399 for the complete blog setup package in comparison to a custom website design and build which costs in the vicinity of $3000 to $5000, possibly even more.
What Will Your Blog Look like?
I will setup your blog to look exactly like the theme demo at StudioPress. See just some examples below.
Here's What You Get
I currently offer two blog setup packages. Below is a list of features that the packages combined include.
Help Registering Your Domain Name
A step by step video tutorial walking you through the process of registering a domain name, also known as an URL, which is the address people use to find your blog on the internet e.g www.theblogmechanic.com
Help Setting Up The Best Web Hosting
Step by step assistance walking you through the process of creating a web hosting account. Good web hosting is crucial to the success of your online business, yet so many people overlook the importance of it.
WordPress Installed On Your Server
I will install and configure the latest version of WordPress on your web hosting account. WordPress is the most popular blogging platform on the web used by more than 30% (and growing) of small business owners worldwide
Genesis Theme ($99.95+ Value)
Included in my blog setup packages I will install any premium theme of your choice from StudioPress and set it up to look beautifully like the theme demo, filled with demo content and configured for optimum performance. All you have to do is login and start filling it with articles, pictures, podcasts and/or videos! (that's your job!).
1 Development Hour
The complete blog setup package includes 60 minutes of technical support to be used for website customization. I can add your logo, modify site colors and fonts, replace the demo content with your own content, edit menu items, recommend and install plugins, and more.
Hackers are everywhere and they love causing trouble, but I will make it harder for those dirty little gremlins to break your new blog. I will setup WordPress following best security practices, and install the best malware monitoring tools on the web to protect your blog from hacks and attacks.
What use is a blog if no one can find it? I will configure WordPress settings for optimal SEO performance and install the best SEO plugin to help your content get found in major search engines like Google. You just have to find the keyword phrases you want to be found for and enter them into the plugin settings (that's also your job!)
Essential WordPress Plugins
WordPress plugins extend website functionality but you must be careful. Too many plugins or badly coded plugins can have a negative impact on website performance. I will install and configure the best must have plugins that will help you with a wide variety of features including image optimization, contact forms, site speed, and more.
Email Newsletter Optin Forms
Building an email list is crucial to the growth of your blog-based business. When you have an email list you can get traffic and make sales on demand. To give you a head start with email marketing, I won't just add email optin forms to your blog as seen on the theme demo at StudioPress, I will integrate the forms with your autoresponder account and make sure they are GDPR compliant.
Spam Protection to filter out spam comments and block spam emails.
Google Analytics to know where visitors come from and what content they like
SSL / https so Google won't mark your blog as insecure and lower seo rankings
Social Media Sharing Buttons to make sharing your content easy
Video Tutorials to teach you how to use WordPress in 60 minutes or less
