What Will Your Blog Look Like?
Here's a few examples of blogs setup by The Blog Mechanic
Here Is What You Get
The Blog Setup Packages Include
Help Purchasing a Domain Name
A step by step video tutorial walking you through the process of registering a domain name, also known as a URL, which is the address people use to find your blog on the internet e.g www.theblogmechanic.com
Help Setting Up a Web Hosting Account
Step by step assistance walking you through the process of purchasing and creating a web hosting account. Web hosting is the place where all your website files and folders are stored, making your blog visible on the internet
We 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
Theme Installation & Full Configuration
Included in our blog setup package we 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 the site with your own content (that's your job!).
Our comprehensive blog setup package includes 60 minutes of technical support to be used for website customization. We can add your logo, modify site colors and fonts, replace the demo content with your own content, edit the navigation menu, recommend and install plugins, and more.
WordPress Security Setup
Hackers are everywhere and they love causing trouble. Truth is, it's not possible to have a 100% secure website, but we can make it harder for those dirty little gremlins to break your new blog. We will setup WordPress following best security practises and install and configure the best WordPress security plugin.
What use is a blog if no one can find it? We 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 your job!)
Essential WordPress Plugins
WordPress plugins are the reason why WordPress is so popular. They extend site functionality without touching a single line of code - but you must be careful. Too many plugins or badly coded plugins can have a negative impact on website performance. We will install and configure the best must have plugins that will help you with a wide variety of features including image optimization, contact forms, caching, site speed analysis and more.
Building an email list is crucial to the growth of your blog-based business. When you have an email list you have a database of leads and customers. That means you can generate traffic and sales on demand. To give you a head start with email marketing, we won't just add email optin forms to your blog as seen on the theme demo at StudioPress, we will integrate the sign up forms with an autoresponder account like Aweber and ActiveCampaign.
Spam Protection to filter out spam comments and reduce spam emails.
Social Media Sharing Buttons to make sharing your content easy
Google Analytics know where visitors come from and what content they like
Professional Email Address: You@YourDomainName.com
