Are you ready to get a jump start on next year? People ask me all the time about starting their own blog. They want to know what they should blog about, how often they should blog, which blogging platform is the best, and all sorts of other questions about blogging.
Even with the wild popularity of social media, I still recommend that every creator out there have their own blog to serve as their digital “headquarters” for everything they do online.
Yes, you need to master social media, but you need to own your own home online. That home is your blog. Every serious content creator has their own site of some type, even if they don't blog every day.
You should do the same.
I'm finally taking some advice from a dear friend (my wife) and I'll be starting a new series on blogging starting in January. I will take you through the blogging process step by step and leave nothing behind. We'll go from how to set up your blog to get the most visits possible to how often you should write and how you should write your posts.
I'm not sure what the cost of this course will be when it launches in January 2018 but I can tell you it will be…
- an ongoing membership with updates, live streams, and online workshops
- members only content
- office hours for members
I'm expecting that the price of this will be either a monthly recurring fee or a one-time price. But it will be worth WAY MORE than whatever it costs you because of the value you'll receive.
If you want to get in on this EARLY and avoid the fees, keep reading…
I've been blogging since 2006 and have seen direct benefits from my work in my career and you can see the same results. And right now is the best time to start your blog and here's why…
Right now, WP Engine is having a sale on their hosting. I switched to WP Engine two years ago after a nasty, nasty fight with my former web host. WP Engine has been INCREDIBLE as a web host over the last couple of years and I now host ALL my sites with them.
Every successful blog starts with great hosting. Right now, you can sign up for hosting with WP Engine and get 35% off your first payment, their biggest discount EVER. If you decide to pay yearly, that's over $100 off your price and you're set for the YEAR.
AND… if you sign up with WP Engine between now and November 30, 2017, I'll get your site set up for you MYSELF. I've been setting up winning blogs since 2006 and will get you started right on your blogging journey. I'll set up your blog, install the best plugins to help you get more traffic, AND….
If you purchase a new theme from Studiopress (they're 25% off right now), I'll install your theme for you and help you customize the look and feel of your site.
Of course, you'll need a domain name, too. Right now you can get a new domain for as little as $0.99 at GoDaddy.
So, to recap, here's what I'm offering this Black Friday/Cyber Monday week…
- When you purchase a new hosting account from WP Engine, I'll set up your blog for you. Just hit me up on the Contact page after you make your purchase and we'll work out the details. I'll respond within 48 hours.
- If you purchase a new theme from Studiopress, I'll install it for you and help you customize the look and feel of your blog (NOTE: I'm no design expert so any tweaks will be limited to what is available in your theme. This is NOT a custom blog design from scratch. I can point you in the right direction if that's what you're interested in.)
- When you purchase web hosting AND a new theme, I'll include you in my new Blog training program when it launches in January 2018.
So, whether you're setting up your first blog, interested in starting a new blog, or want to have a new look for your blog, I can help you out this weekend.
