Do you need someone to set up a website for you? Do you need a blog? I highly recommend using a self-hosted WordPress.org blog/site for your primary online presence home on the web. I’d love to teach you how to set one up yourself either through my classes or 1 on 1 training. In fact I my favorite thing to do is to have someone get their WordPress installed through my referral partners. Free Blog Factory – for only the cost of the monthly hosting. And then we work together through my 1 on 1 training to customize or learn how to USE the blog most effectively. This would be my first choice for you if you want a WordPress website or blog.
I do know, though, that some people do not have the time or patience to deal with the technical aspects of learning WordPress enough to get it the way they want it. For you, I offer WordPress Website or Blog setup.
I am limiting these to a maximum of 2 per month ONLY. My time is very limited due to my training and speaking schedule but I like keeping my hands in the WordPress world and building sites now and then. Please check with me first to see my availability as I often have a wait of a month or two.
What Is Included?
For this service I install a WordPress site (on your own host and domain, or I’ll install through Free Blog Factory) which includes up to 5 pages. I will teach you how to make more on your own after that. Your site can either be a stand alone website with a static home page, or it can be a traditional blog with the home page displaying blog posts.
I prefer working with the Thesis Theme framework and will include this free of charge unless you prefer a different theme.
This also includes installation of the most popular plugins to add functionality, as well as any WordPress widgets you might like in the sidebar or footer of your site.
When the project is completed you will also receive up to one hour of telephone training on basic use of your site. If you would like to receive additional training on marketing your website or blog or on how to further customize your site beyond the one hour basic training, consider also purchasing my 1 on 1 training package.
What’s Not Included?
This does NOT include installation of a shopping cart, though I can add the WordPress eStore plugin and configure that for you for an extra charge depending on the number and nature of your products.
This also does not include the setup or installation of your email newsletter/opt-in offer through a service such as Mailchimp. It can include a basic contact form, however, through a plugin. If you would like Mailchimp set up, I can do that for an additional charge. I do not work with other services, only MailChimp.
This does not include any custom banners or graphics you would like, and you will need to provide any wording you would like on each page as well as give me input on colors/layout you would like. If you would like additional items, just ask and you will be given an estimate for any extra charges, typically at my current hourly rate of $125. (I work fast!!)
Please note: As mentioned above I only reserve slots for 2 of these projects per month. Although I am quite busy with other tasks in my business, once I begin your project you can typically expect completion within 2 weeks depending on how quickly you are able to get me any graphics or text, and any back and forth about your choices. Since I often have others waiting for me to begin their projects too, it is important that you respect this timeline. If you do not think you will have time to deal with this within the 2 week period (once I give you the estimated start date – contact me for that) then please hold off on ordering. Occasionally I will subcontract out certain aspects of your WordPress website to competent partners. Rest assured that quality is my highest priority and I will oversee any outsourced work.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to serving you!
