Learn the Secret to Creating Your Own Hosted WordPress Blog
If you’re serious about your internet marketing, then you’ve probably at the minimum heard of using blogs for internet marketing.
I’d like to talk to you today about how you can set up a WordPress blog easily and quickly to be well on your way to creating a new front for your internet marketing efforts.
The first thing that you need to do is go ahead and do your standard keyword research…Find a profitable niche, find an affiliate offer for that niche, pick out your keywords, yada yada yada.
Alright, let’s just assume that you’ve done that part perfectly. Real quick though, before we move on, you need to make sure that you have a hosting account set up. I know that this is a pretty easy step, but it’s basic that you get the proper hosting.
The hosting plan that you get on NEEDS to have cpanel access in addition as Fantastico built into the hosting. This is basic! Without this step you will not be able to make your blog. I recommend HostGator, but that’s just me.
Now what you’re going to do is go ahead and buy your desired domain name, make sure that you forward the nameservers to your hosting account. You should do this when you buy the domain name because I’ve found that it makes the wait until you can use the domain much quicker.
Once you’ve bought your domain, it may take up to 24 hours for you to have access to your cpanel. To get to your domain’s cpanel, simply kind your domain name in, then end it with a “/cpanel”. So for example: [www.yourdomain.com/cpanel] would be an example of how to get there. Once you’re inside your hosting explain your purchased domain, find the Fantastico option. Once you click there it’s as simple as finding the WordPress option and clicking install!
Congratulations, you now have produced your very first blog! You’re well on your way to using blogs to increase your marketing capabilities!
Good luck with your blog creating!
