Why Word Press?

Why you should create a website with a Word Press blog?  It is Simple to work!  What is Word Press?  Word Press is a Content Management System that is created for the beginner to feel confident with putting content out the first time that they publish content.  You will know how to use it after doing it once.  You simply:

Word Press is like a word document, you type and publish.  You don’t need to know code; this is why they created plugins.  You don’t need to create a design; there are 2,087 themes to pick for free.  What do you do with themes and pages once it is installed Word Press?  Follow the steps below, I will show you.  I created tutorials of everything that I do with my Word Press websites.


First 5 things to do to Word Press

Step 1: Design your Website with Word Press blog

The first thing that I do is upload my tools.  Tip: The reason why I do this step first is that sometimes themes may not be compatible with certain tool and it can cause problems with the website like errors.  You want to ensure compatibility and then concentrate on content.  You will need the SEO tool for your posts and pages.  Here are the set ups to complete before you write anything:

  1. Yoast SEOYou will need to set up your posts and pages under where you type your content.  You will need to fill in the title, keyword and meta description.
  2. W3 Total CacheYou will need to clear your cache from time to time or your website can perform slower.  You should configure this tool.  Watch a tutorial on this tool.  There are features that you should learn.
  3. Contact 7 form- You will need a form for people on your contact page.
  4. Blubrry Powerpress- This tool will provide you with a place to upload your podcast to on the bottom of your posts where you type in content.
  5. Tube press- Put a video gallery on your website of your YouTube or vimeo videos.
  6. Smart slider 3- This will allow you to put slides on your website without any way for people to leave your website when the slide is finished.

Step 3: Permalinks

You need to scroll down to settings and click on permalinks.  You will come to permalinks settings page.

permalinks

Click on post name.  You will see a box behind your website domain name: If you do not see this: /%postname%/.  You need to put this there.

/%postname%/

Click save changes.

Step 4: Tips for Pages

What should each page contain?  The page should contain a title with your keyword.  You should place the title at the top of the content as a <h2> header.   You should put a picture that takes up the top of the content.   The first paragraph of the article should contain the keyword.  You should bold or underline the keywords that relate to the topic beside the one that you use in the title.  Place the keyword in the ending paragraph.  You should place links from your website any place that you can in that content.  Place a video, graphic or slide when possible in content.  These are the new standards to get traffic and page rank to your content.  Watch your grammar and your spelling or you will not rank well.  The content should be consistent with your niche topic.

Step 5: Create your Pages 

Place your logo and Slogan on the front page.  Place a sign up form on the top of the page with a free offer for sign up.  Place what your website does for your target audience.  Your front page can be a static page or you can let your posts show up on the front page under customizer.  You can go to settings and click reading to set the home page as well.  Be creative.

The first pages that should be created:

  • Home Page (Loading Page of your website)
  • About (You and the Company)
  • Contact Page (How do people contact you or the company)
  • Start here or Get Started Page (One popular page that shows results)
  • E-commerce website: Service, Product or Resource Page

Your website should express what it is about and what it does for visitors.  The average person leaves a website within 30 seconds unless you get their attention.

Think Landing pages

You need to be able to create roads to your website that can land on a designated page to convert those people into email list.  You need a landing page to accomplish this process.  The point of a landing page is for people not to be able to leave the page unless they back out of the page.  Psychology shows that when people only can do one of two things that they will respond.  When ever they see options that are available they can not choose.  Landing pages demand a response.  There are no menus, links or side bars to exit.  Create sales pages, funnel pages and get leads.

I trust think landing pages for my landing pagesDon’t pay $250 yearly or $50 a month for so called, “# 1 landing pages”.  Rip off.  Think landing pages is affordable ($29 for one site or $49 for every site) without the monthly charges to keep your landing pages like those other services.  The developer is advanced with experience building multimillion dollar software.  Point: The plugin works.  The plugin is customizable and works with the email auto responders in the market.  I built dozens of landing pages through multiple hosting, themes and get results without one problem.  You can’t convert me off this recommendation.

Why I chose Aweber

Trial offer speaks of confidence and experience

I started with $1 for the first month; now you can start your 30 day trial for free. Do you want to know something?  Aweber is an experienced email service that went through the period of working out the problems that these newer services are dealing with solving right now.  I don’t want to pay for service that still needs work.  I am running a company.  I need experience and reliability.  I get that with Aweber.  I did not experience a single problem with Aweber in the years of service.

Affordability

You cannot start with another service for a cheaper price with experience and reliability. I tell you another thing; they are not going to let you try for free.  Wonder why? Hum!  They do not trust that you would stay.  No question that price and assurance of delivery of emails is what you need.  Get that now.  Get Aweber.

Deliverability

Mail chimp suspended my account calling a free offer spam: unreliable. Aweber emails get delivered.  The other problem with services is that they allow duplicate emails without restricting IP from first sign up.  When emails get delivered to the same email account two times, you could be flagged as spam.  We are paying for emails to get delivered and competitors cannot get this right.

98% deliverability is there boasting. That is what I am paying to get.

Unlimited

Aweber lets you set up unlimited lists and other services do not. You can send unlimited emails.  No charge for usage.

Simple

There are other services that are complicated to set up. Aweber is very easy.  There are resources to walk you through.  Do you want professional campaigns?  There are templates for forms and campaigns that are professional.

There is Facebook and twitter features, and with shopping carts.  You can automatically email blog posts, campaigns and check data to see what they open up.  You get an idea of what they want to read and do not want to read.  The support is great.  You can talk to someone at Aweber instead of through an email.  Try 30 days  with aweber free: #1 email auto responder.
