If you can use a word processor, you should have no problem putting this plan into action.
What is the plan? We’re going to build a website together.
If you follow along with the videos and instructions you’ll end up with a site just like the one I build in the videos.
First we’ll install WordPress then install the Genesis Framework and a child theme.
What do you have to pay for?
- A premium StudioPress theme. (Optional but recommended $99.)
- WP101.com training videos. ($39 – optional.)
- Web space, hosting and domain name. (WordPress.org usually have a special offer with Bluehost)
So the only price you have to pay is for a domain name and web hosting. That is if you just want a basic WordPress site. There is usually a special offer on the first year’s hosting for new users at Bluehost. BUT you have to go through the WordPress.org site.
Are the training videos and premium theme really necessary?
Only if you want to look professional.
Start by watching my first video. This explains how to buy a domain name, web hosting and install WordPress. The video also helps you decide if a DIY website is right for you.
