What is hosting and how do i set it up?
Let us take care of that for you – setting up your hosting is all included (and details of what is done and how it works is all explained in the online course… if you want to know more about it)
Why are hosting prices so varied?
Hosting companies offer really varied services for the prices. More often than not the cheapest option is not the best. After years of dealing with a variety of hosting companies we only work with SiteGround, they are amazing.
Do I have to setup WordPress?
Don’t bother going to YouTube “how to setup WordPress”, its done for you. Focus on what you really need to be doing.
I cant afford to put all this money into something that will need to be replaced in six month, will this website last?
This solution allows you build on your site as your business grows. Websites often need to be upgraded or replaced after a few years but this website will last you as long as, if not longer than any other solution.
Can I sell stuff?
It will be ready for you to add payment buttons, email marketing sign ups, and other functionality that you need (that’s available on WordPress). You will likely need to add additional plugins to perform these services. For taking one off payments there are some simple plugins I can recommend, or you can use a PayPal button. You can set these up yourself or ask me anytime for help.
For full online stores and shopping carts, lots of people use the WordPress plugin WooCommerce but it really depends on your business requirements. There are a lot of options to consider, like Tax, SSL Certificate, Payment Gateways, Shipping Cost Calculators and more. This is all possible on your Brand New website as its built on WordPress. Some people do this themselves, however I don’t want to mislead you. If you’re not at all techy (and even if you are) this can be a complex process. You may need to get some help in implementing a full store and that can run into the thousand of Dollars. If you’re just starting out, this “Brand New” package may not be the right product for you. You should consider other options like Shopify before purchasing and make sure that this is the way you want to go.
I want to be able to make content changes myself – upload videos, start blogging, add images/photos.
Yes, Yes, Yes, easy. You will not need to pay someone every time you need to make a change. Check out the demo video on this page to see how easily you can create and change content.
No one will hack my site, I’m not important enough.
Untrue! Hackers go around the interwebs looking for sites with the username “admin” or other security vulnerabilities. I get an alert every day that someone has attempted to hack my site.
… but, you can avoid this by upgrading WordPress, Themes and Plugins every month or two and taking some other security measures. The online training course will cover everything you need to know. This is a service I currently charge over $200 for a month. You will know exactly what you need to do.
Do I get backups
The software that you need to setup backups will be installed for you and the training course will cover how to set this up.
You will be able to create LANDING PAGES with no additional software!
That’s right! Some landing page software is $30+ per month. You will be able to create landing pages on your website by just changing one option.
