Introducing our Blogger’s Quick Start Service

Our Blogger’s Quick Start Service is the quickest, easiest and safest way to get your blog online!

Have you always wanted to start a blog?

Do you have things to say, but aren’t sure about where to start?

Are you overwhelmed by all of the choices?

The confusing terminology?

Do you feel stuck in a technological learning curve?

Does having more questions than answers make you want to put your blog off for another day?

Our Blogger’s Quick Start Service may just be for you.

We believe the technobabble side of blogging shouldn’t keep you from writing. The only reason you should stay up late working on your blog is because you’re loving every minute of it.

The Old Way To Start A Blog

If you go with a free blogging platform:

Yes, it’s free, but …

  • The designs and capabilities are extremely limited.
  • There is little room for customization.
  • You can’t get any real SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so the site will always rank poorly.
  • You have little to no control over your own site.  In a very real sense, it is their site, not yours.

If you do it all yourself:

  • Research the blogging / CMS platform.  Do you want Joomla? Drupal? Or WordPress?
  • Learn about hosting options: Shared hosting? VPS? WordPress hosting?
  • Research hosting companies. Reliability, speed, cost. Find reviews, but find reviews that are not paid/compensated reviews.
  • Set up your hosting account and server.  Ensure your server is secure.  There’s more research.
  • Set up your blogging platform. Make sure that it is secure (hint: out of the box, it is not!).   And more research.

The Result?

Frustrated by something as "simple" as starting a blog? You need our blogger's quick start service.

Benefits

Both plans, the basic plan (the “Blogger’s Quick Start”) and the plus plan (the “Blogger’s Quick Start Plus”) have the following benefits:

Hosting Setup

A–Z. Soup to nuts. Start to finish. However you put it, this is truly a one-step process. Sign up and we take care of the rest. In 72 hours you’ll be ready to blog.

WordPress Installed & Secured

We install WordPress for you, then take over a dozen additional steps to secure your site. Because WordPress updates are crucial to your site’s security, we update your WordPress installation once we test each release. You don’t have to do a thing.

Free "Dot Com" Domain Name

If you need a domain name, we’ve got you covered. During checkout, just choose the domain name. If you pay for the entire year, not only do you receive a discount on the hosting, you’ll also get the domain name for free!

Beautiful, Modern Theme

We’ll install a selection of beautiful themes, ready for you to use.

SEO Optimized

Your blog will be SEO optimized to help your future readers find it.

Mobile Friendly

Your site will be fully responsive and mobile friendly, meaning that it will look as great on a phone or tablet as it does on a high-resolution desktop computer.

Monthly Site Backups

We will back up your site every month, to help protect you against losing your valuable data. A monthly backup is perfect for a startup blog, while you ramp up your posts’ frequency.  If you require more frequent backups, we can do that, too.

Full Featured Plugins

We install all the plugins that you’ll need for a successful blog.  Opt-in mailing list?  We install the best one.  Google Analytics plugin?  We install the one that’s most usable. And on and on.  We take care of you!

We set up your hosting.  We install WordPress.  We secure and lock down your site.  We set up your site with a selection of beautiful themes that we’ve tested for you, and with the most useful plugins.  And then we back up your data every month.  How cool is that!

How much does it cost?

For all of that service, all that peace of mind?  We charge an affordable $35 setup fee, plus hosting costs of either $14 per month, $39 per quarter; or $149 per year.  And, if you choose the yearly pricing, we throw in a free new or transferred “dot com” (.com) domain name.

Benefits exclusive to the Blogger’s Quick Start Plus

The “Blogger’s Quick Start Plus” plan has the following additional benefits:

Quarterly Reports

Every quarter, we send you a report detailing exactly what we’ve done for you over the past few months.  The reports let you know that everything about your site (that we control) is exactly as it should be.

CloudFlare CDN

We set up CloudFlare CDN’s free tier to make your site faster.

Theme Updates

Themes update, too, and it’s important to keep them updated.  As your theme releases updates, we test them and then update your theme.

Plugin Updates & Testing

Plugins update all the time.  Our WordPress experts constantly test plugins for bugs and vulnerabilities.  If they pass our tests, we update your site’s plugins.  Another worry — gone!

Quarterly Performance Checks

Every quarter we run a thorough performance check on your site and give you the results & recommendations in your next quarterly report.

Weekly Security Scan

Every week, we scan your site for malware and other vulnerabilities.  If there is malware, we’ll notify you.  Finally, we’ll clean any infections as quickly and as inexpensively as possible.

Weekly/Daily Site Backups

We will back up your site either weekly or daily, as your posting frequency dictates, to help protect you against losing your valuable data. If you require hourly or near-realtime backups, we can handle that for you as well.

Customers Love It!

FAQ

How long will it take for you to set up my blog?

If you have a domain name picked out, the ordering process will take you a few minutes. Once that is complete (including payment), we will have your site up, tested and running within three working days.

Am I locked into a long-term contract?

No.  We understand that circumstances change, and sometimes unexpectedly. So with this service we don’t require a long-term contract.  You can cancel at any time. The hosting service is month to month so, if you decide to stop, just cancel and your service will end at the end of the term.  There are incentives for lengthening the term, though.  If you sign up for quarterly terms, you receive a 7% discount and if you sign up for an annual term you receive a 15% discount!  In addition, with a yearly term you also receive a free domain name for the next year.

Do you offer ongoing support for my blog?

The Blogger’s Quick Start Service makes it easier for you to get your blog “switched on.”  The ongoing hosting fee is for hosting.  Most bloggers we work with divide “ongoing support” into two categories:  (1) maintenance/upkeep, and (2) training.  For the first, for a small fee we offer an upgraded package that includes full upgrades of the WordPress core, your themes, and all plugins. As for training, we have some very good resources available, at no charge, to teach you the basics of running a WordPress blog.

If you need anything additional, feel free to submit a support ticket and ask, such as:

  • I want my blog to do “X” — can I make it do that?
  • My blog is getting 25,000 hits per day. Can I make it faster?
  • Can you add a couple of pages for me?
  • Can I add a shopping cart and sell a couple of products online?

For the last three questions, the answer is “Of course.  Just ask and we’ll generate a quote.”

“Who” is the hosting company?

All hosting is managed by our sister company, Hostificant LLC.  The people behind Hostificant started running their first server in 1995, and the servers and infrastructure are based in top-of-the line secure data centers. Take a virtual tour of one of our data centers.  For starter blogs, like the blog set up via our Blogger’s Quick Start Service, we use shared hosting, which is economical and reasonably quick.  As your site grows in readers or complexity, we will move your site to an optimized server.  Think of it as moving from a building of one-bedroom apartments with no elevator to a building of 2- and 3-bedroom condos overlooking the pool and fitness center.

  • Thanks, guys, for helping me set up my blog. I had put it off for over a year because of all of the tech stuff.  You made it easy to get online, up and running.  I've been blogging for about 15 months now and I have some great followers and I'm starting to make a good income from my blog. Highly recommended!
