One of the most common excuse I come across from people I know who are still using BlogSpot (or other free hosted blogging platform) is that they have absolutely no idea what WordPress is or do not know how to install WordPress on own domain. This is natural for new bloggers as most of them don’t have any technical background. Terms like domain registrations, FTP, cPanel, MySQL Database goes well over their head.
Because of these, many potential blogger would never start professional blogging. If you are one of them, or know someone, I would be glad to setup your WordPress blog for you at no cost at all. Not only that, I will also install and configure some of the must have plugins for you to get you started with blogging. Here is the list of the plugin that I will install for you:
- JetPack (Stats, Akismet, Gravatar Hovercards, After The Deadline)
- WordPress SEO by Yoast
- W3 Total Cache
- Google XML Sitemap
- WordPress Video Module with Video Sitemap
JetPack is from WordPress developers and most of the plugins like WordPress.com Stats, Akismet and After The Deadline are bundled together within this plugin. WordPress SEO by Yoast is the pioneer search engine optimization plugin for WordPress. It helps you to optimize your blog posts and rank higher in search engines. W3 Total Cache makes your blog load faster and help to handle large volume of traffic. Google XML Sitemap generates a XML sitemap that you can submit in Google Webmaster Tools to get indexed very quickly.
WordPress Video Module is a custom plugin by me that lets you easily embed videos from over 20 sites (like YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion etc.) and generates a video sitemap.
Sounds Cool, But what’s the Catch?
There is absolutely no catch. Actually, there is one. All you need to do is purchase the web hosting from HostGator using my affiliate link. We both win this way. You get your staff for free, and I’ll be rewarded with a little commission from HostGator. If you were to pay someone to install WordPress and the plugins for you, it would cost you at least $100.
HostGator is one of the top web host in market and they host all my websites and blogs. HostGator’s world class web hosting starts at $4.00 per month and to make that even cheaper, I have a coupon ItsAbhik25 that gives you a straight 25% off on your purchase. Simply order your hosting and enter the coupon code ItsAbhik25 when asked that rebate will immediately reflect on your cart. How cool is that?
If you want more, you will also get a $100 Google Adwords and $50 Facebook credit that you can use to promote your new blog.
Great!! How do I order my new blog?
To get my WordPress Installation Service for free, all you have to do is order a web hosting from HostGator (Don’t forget the ItsAbhik25 HostGator coupon). After purchasing, forward the welcome email (containing your cPanel login information) to abhik [at] itsabhik.com and I’ll install WordPress for you. I’ll send you the WordPress admin login information when done and destroy the email you sent with your cPanel details. I’ll also guide you to change your cPanel password to make you comfortable.
If you are ready to start your blog, I am here to help to with that.
