I highly recommend purchasing your domain from the same site you will use as your web hosting provider to minimize any conflicts. Bluehost offers a free domain with their web hosting and has one of the most competitive pricing and they have excellent and quick support & customer service.

When picking your domain name, keep these things in mind to assure your domain will be:

  • Easy to remember
  • Not to be confused with any existing business name
  • Not to be misspelled
  • Preferably without any dashes that are difficult to incorporate in verbal marketing
  • Representative of your business and the products and services you offer
  • Appealing to your target audience
 Bluehost hosts over 850,000 WordPress blogs and is one of the best website hosting solutions, the best in my opinion. They offer:

  • FREE 1-click WordPress installation
  • A free domain name
  • Unlimited space and bandwidth
  • Unlimited e-Mail accounts
  • A $100 Google Adwords credit
  • and much more, all backed by a Money Back Guarantee.

But even if you do not feel comfortable yet to work with Wordpress and you would rather create your website with the help of a site builder, Bluehost is an optimal solution, offering a free site builder with templates.

 

Two options:

  • WordPress is the #1 Blog Publishing Platform and it's super easy - you will be able to set it up with a 1-click installation through your Bluehost account.
  • If you don't feel tech savvy enough to set up a WordPress site, you can either contact me for help or you can just use Bluehost's free website builder.

 

Themes

ElegantThemes has an amazing selection of themes with professional and slick looks, a variety of designs, and great features, such as a drop-and-drag page and post builder, a free mobile site set-up, and one of the best support systems I have ever experienced. They help with any question you may have and professional developers actually help with customization of any theme.

Plugins

Before you go and start spending $10 here and $12 there for any plugins, consider a membership with WPMU DEV. They have a huge selection of almost any plugin you may need, they even have a large selection of themes, and once again their support is fantastic. 

 

Email Marketing

Aweber is the leading marketing software that allows you to automate your e-Mail campaigns with scheduled and automated follow up e-Mails, auto-responders, and professional sign-up forms that you can easily integrate into your site.

 

Social Media

OnlyWire sends your messages or blog posts to the web's top social networks (you can choose among and up to 47 social networks) with the click of a button.It is best suited for People & Bloggers who would like to submit their content to be shared among their social networks.
