Start your blog in just minutes
Okay! We know its easy to find a free WordPress theme. But how will you create a blog website with it?
Well, with the Authority Marketer, the process is simple:
What will you need before you start?
You will need a domain name of your choice. The one that will then become the identity name of your website. So choose wisely, pick the one that is simple, memorable and one that precisely represents your blog niche.
To host your authority marketer theme, you will also need efficient hosting space. We recommend using WordPress optimized hosting from Bluehost.
This will take approximately 10 minutes if you have already decided on the domain name and hosting service you want.
Installing WordPress & the theme
WordPress will come pre-installed if you opt for WordPress optimized hosting. If not, most of the hosts nowadays will facilitate you by offering a button to help you download the latest version of WordPress.
The initial setup of WordPress is very simple. Even if you have never worked with any internet technologies or web applications ever, the steps are pretty straightforward.
Choose the language, choose a name for database, site name, etc. In less than a 5 minutes you can have WordPress ready and running.
Authority marketer is designed for ease of use. It can be simply uploaded through your WordPress dashboard. You won’t need extra plugins, or a setup wizard to configure theme.
Once the theme is installed, don’t miss installing the sample data to make your website look like the Authority Marketer theme demo.
If you have difficulty setting up WordPress on your host, if you face a problem installing the theme you can contact us :)
Customizing your blog
What would you like to change in a pre-designed theme
Start by uploading your own logo, or setting the suitable site title. Update the banner. You can even change the colors as well as upload a new background image. Also, don’t forget to change the footer credits.
You will need to design your own menu. The items given in the theme demo may not serve you the purpose. The best idea is to brainstorm a menu with all the most important links accommodated into it.
Using the right images can completely change the purpose and idea of your WordPress blog. So find the stock images for your niche and replace the images on your WordPress theme.
Create pages & contact form
I’m sure you have a list of pages you want on your blog site. If not, you can browse some of the blogs that inspire you and create the pages you want. Also, don’t forget to setup a contact form to make it easy for your readers to leave their messages.
For a blog website, categories play an important role since they help your readers to find the posts of their interest at one place without having to browse through the other posts that doesn’t mean anything to them.
Once you have everything set, you can start writing your first post. You can use all the tools you want and create informative, persuasive content to ensure that your readers come back for more.
Monetize your blog site
One of the most common question in a blog owner’s mind is how to make the best of the traffic coming their way in the form of blog readers.
You can easily put your website to best use by integrating features on your blog that can help you make money:
- By displaying sponsored advertisements on your website
- Allowing paid guest blogs on your site
- Subscribing to advertisement networks and posting their banners
- By writing sponsored posts with affiliate links
- Integrating eCommerce along with content to sell your products
A blog can even help you promote your own service, or product. For example, a writer can promote his upcoming novel. A food blogger can promote his new cooking course. A yoga teacher can use his blog to get more people to attend her free yoga seminar!
