Following my post on Friday about getting fresh free blog content, which also went out on email, I received some questions. The top question was how to start a WordPress blog.
If you don’t yet have any WordPress blogs, the launch of these new blog content syndication sites is a great opportunity to start blogging without the pain!
I’ve been reviewing some WordPress videos recently and the best I have found are included in Andrew Wilson’s Internet Marketing Training Videos site here:
You will need to be a paid member to get the newest videos that relate to the current version of WordPress with its new design and navigation. It’s a monthly site but it’s a very reasonable price and if you only want to learn about blogging, you can download all the videos right away.
Here’s how to find them:
Once you’re in, click on Training Videos and choose Blogging. Click on the first download link, for the package marked 01. This will take you to the download page for that package. Download them all, unzip and click on the html page file that is inside each directory to watch the videos.
But … I recommend you go ahead and do each task while you are watching the videos – i.e. pause the video often, and go off and do what it tells you to do to create your first blog. Take action, don’t just sit and watch. That way, within minutes you can see results – your WordPress blog will be live on the internet.
Of course there are a huge number of instructional videos on other IM topics in this site too and if you take a look around you’ll see there is a lot that’s worth staying for. These include:
- how to set up an online store with Zen Cart
- video marketing: 12 different ways to make money with videos
- how to set up an opt-in form on your site with AWeber
- how to set up a custom 404 error page on your site
- bonus: complete package of internet marketing videos
Plus each month you get a new package to download. For September you will find a very cool set of Traffic videos that you can both learn from and resell (you get Master Resale Rights to those too).
In fact, if Andrew’s site has a fault, it’s that there is too much information!
Andrew has asked me to help reorganize it to make it easier for new members to navigate. I’m going to recommend they concentrate on the WordPress videos first as they are great and it’s a very good way to get a classy-looking site up and running.
