Whether you want to work with a website or blog, the steps are similar. There are essential steps to ensure smooth functioning of your site. These steps can be carried out within 5 – 10 minutes so it’s nothing to worry about. Here we go:
- Buy your domain from Namecheap. Visit this page for the latest coupons
- Pay for hosting at Bluehost. Bluehost gives you a free domain with your hosting account but I don’t recommend this option. Register your main domain (the one you wouldn’t like to lose) direct from Namecheap. You can use the Bluehost offer for your buffer sites.
- Install WordPress.
- Add widgets. Widgets give you space to post pictures, videos, advertisements and any other content you want to share outside the main posts.
- Install essential plugins for the following functions
- Link shortening
- Social sharing
- Analytics – for traffic and trends
- Email interaction – collect email signups
Once you have finished the above you are ready to start posting and sharing your content. All the best! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us using the form below:
