THE NITTY GRITTY DETAILS
You’re likely wondering: How do I get my hands on this sweet deal? Well, the blog set-up service and the Premium theme I’m installing for you (valued at $120 altogether) is technically free, but you do need to purchase hosting and your domain yourself. Claim this free service by getting web hosting through one of my recommended web hosts, send me your proof-of-purchase receipt, and your hosting login info.
Once I validate this information, I’ll build your blog! Email me to get started.
Hey, i'm ariette 🙂 a little about me if you're new...
I started hobby blogging back in 2009 (before blogging was cool to admit) on Tumblr & Blogger as an outlet as a way to write creatively, outside of school. I fell in love with the blogging experience and networked with other bloggers from around the world… It’s been 10 years since!
Blogging back in the day was cool – you could have tons of virtual pen pals! 10 years later, blogging has changed but it is still very much an active platform. In fact, for business owners, blogging has become an excellent way to build your brand online and increase revenue opportunity. Online biz, niche blogs, and e-commerce is booming, as they say.
Frequently asked questions (i anticipated)
Yes. I will be providing you tips and tutorials to understand your WP dashboard and the blogging process too. If you’d like me to do monthly maintenance, I can do it as an add-on service for $20/month (updating plugins, general upkeep).
Easy definition: Think of your domain as your online address, and web hosting is where your content lives online (hence hosting fees = landlords need to be paid to maintain your web site)… where your website lives.
You can get your domain at Namecheap, it’s my top recommendation for affordable domains and you can point it to any host. If you go with HostPapa or Bluehost as a web host, they offer a *free domain the first year.
You can choose from any from my personal menu of premium, commercial-use themes under my belt (I’ve built WordPress websites for people). If you have a theme in mind that I don’t have, you may need to purchase it separately and provide me the zip file.
Once we have your branding, copy and images settled, the turnaround time of building your website is exactly one week, excluding weekends & holidays.
You do 🙂 While I am the person putting it together for you, it’s all yours. The domain, the website, the blog.
WordPress is the most robust in functionality and features if you want your website to be fully customizable and scalable; it is self-hosted and you own your content. Also, in the long run, it’s actually more cost-effective than the other options (WordPress.org CMS is actually free — it’s the hosting, domain and themes/plugins you pay for). The costs are more upfront rather than continual to upkeep.
Purchase a hosting plan using any one of my partner links below at any of the following hosts:
– LyricalHost (get 10% off any plan with the code: ARIE10)
– HostPapa (Black Friday deal: $1/month unlimited hosting for 36 CAD months! Typical $14/month)
– SiteGround (Black Friday: up to 60-75% off all hosting plans for the first year!)
Purchase hosting then email me the receipt as proof-of-purchase with your password to your hosting password so I can log in and build your website for you. DW, you can change your password once the website is finished!
No problem. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll aim to answer your email between 1-2 business days. Thanks for your grace!
