Allow me to be the first to say: Congratulations!
Deciding to start a WordPress blog is not a decision to be made lightly, and I can tell you're serious about making this dream of website ownership a reality.
Let me also tell you how jealous I am. Yes, jealous. When I started my first business (a computer repair service) almost 10 years ago, there was no one around to help me with the ins and outs of web hosting and website setup. I had to figure it all out myself, and it took hours. No, probably days.
You, on the other hand, have it easy.
You're not going to have to struggle one little bit.
I've built this Tiny Service to help you take care of all the initial setup for your new website. It's the service I wish I had when I set up my website.
The Complete Domain, Hosting, and WordPress Setup tiny service is simple (unlike its name). We’ll meet on Skype or Google Hangouts, and together we'll purchase a domain and web hosting (the two things you need to have a website).
I’ll defend against the web host’s evil propensity to try to sell you lots of add-ons you don’t need. Then, I'll give you a virtual high five when you are the proud owner of a new domain name. We’ll come away with just the services you actually need.
Next, I’ll give you a link to view the library of premium WordPress themes that I've paid for. Take as long as you want to choose your theme. While you're checking those out, I'll get to work installing WordPress on your server. You can pick whatever you want– when you find one that you like, I’ll install it at no charge.
When everything is ready to go, I'll send you an email with instructions on how to log in, and write your first blog post. Easy.
Just like that, I'll take you from zero to WordPress
All the time it would take you to buy something on Amazon. Here's a run down on what this tiny service includes
What I'll do:
- Sit down with you to buy your domain and hosting
- Make sure you get the best deal possible by signing up for just what you need
- Configure all the back-end stuff (like installing WordPress)
- Give you access to my library of premium themes from Elegant Themes, and install your favorite
- Provide you with clear instructions on how to log in and create new posts and pages
- Save you all the time you would have spent figuring this out on your own
What you'll have when we're done:
- Your very own domain (you know, like www.yourwebsite.com)
- Reliable web hosting from BlueHost
- A gorgeous WordPress website that's set up and ready to go
- A platform for writing a blog and promoting your business
- The knowledge and confidence to move forward adding content to your website
- A stress headache
Frequently Asked Questions
I already have hosting and/or a domain. Is that okay?
Sure! I’m happy to work with an account that you already have, but it has to be through one of my approved web hosts: BlueHost, Hostgator, DreamHost, or LiquidWeb. And if you already own your domain, it could take some extra time but we'll get it worked out. Anything else? Email me before you checkout.
How much does this cost?
The Complete Domain, Hosting, and WordPress Setup costs $299- and that's less than the cost of the premium theme and plugins I'm giving you!
How much will my domain and hosting cost?
In general, your domain will cost you about $15 per year, and hosting from my preferred provider (Bluehost) will cost you about $10 month.
How long does it all take?
Our meeting will take about a half an hour. After we’ve purchased the domain and hosting, I’ll install WordPress within 24 hours, and once you choose a theme, I’ll install that within 24 hours, too.
What if I need more help, like having your set up or format pages for me?
We’ll talk about it at our meeting. Plus, by purchasing this tiny service you’ll receive 10% off my hourly rate for other work on this site!
What happens after I sign up?
