Thank you for attending my 4 pillars of successful blogging presentation at the 2011 Vancouver Marketing Mastery Summit. Below are resources you can use to take your blogging to the next level and become the “Go To Expert” in your field. If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to contact me.
Free WordPress Installation Service
One of the most common complaint (or excuse) I hear from potential new bloggers is they don’t know how to install WordPress. Terms like FTP and CPanel are like a foreign language and setting up a database might as well be setting up the space shuttle for a launch.
Because of the technology barrier, many would be bloggers never start their blogs. If you’re in this situation, then you’ll be happy to know about my new free WordPress installation service.
It’s really simple. I will install and set up a WordPress blog for you at no cost to you. Not only that, I will also install for free the following plugins to get your blog started on the right foot:
- All In One SEO
- Google Sitemap
- W3 Total Cache
- Show Top Commentators
- WordPress.com Stats
- After The Deadline
All In One SEO is the ultimate SEO plugin for WordPress and will help your blog rank higher with the search engines. In addition, I’ll set up your new blog with search engine friendly URLs. Google Sitemap will help get your blog pages indexed quickly on Google. W3 Total Cache will make your blog load a lot faster and handle more traffic. Show Top Commentators encourages readers to comment on your blog. WP Stats will let you know who is visiting your blog. Akismet kills off the comment spam and After The Deadline will proof read your blog post for grammar and spelling. These are some of the best WordPress plugins available and they’re included free with the WordPress installation service.
What’s The Catch?
There is no catch. This program is being sponsored by HostGator. They are my official web host and host all my blogs. They are the ones paying me to do this. If you were to pay someone to install WordPress and the plugins for you, it would cost you at least $100.
To get the free WordPress installation service, all you have to do is order a web hosting plan from HostGator. Then forward me the login information to johnchow [at] johnchow.com and I’ll install WordPress for you. Afterwards, I’ll email you back the login information for your new WordPress blog and you can start blogging!
I will also include instructions on how to change all your login passwords. I will not keep any of the forwarded information from HostGator. Once WordPress has been set up, I will destroy the email.
Get 25% Off Any Web Hosting Plan
Word class web hosting doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. HostGator WordPress hosting plans start as low as $4.95 per month. However, I have a coupon code that will give you 25% off that already low price.
Simply order the your web hosting and enter coupon code JohnChow25 into the coupon field. This will reduce the price of any hosting plan by 25%.
Not only will you get your hosting at a great discount but every hosting plan at HostGator comes with $100 of Google AdWords and $25 of Bing credit that you can use to promote your new blog. Start your blog for 25% off, get WordPress and plugins installed for free, and get $125 of advertising credit. You won’t find a better web hosting deal anywhere!
If you’re ready to start blogging right now, and I mean RIGHT NOW, then head over to HostGator, order your hosting plan and I’ll get you started.
