How To Set Up A WordPress Website And Blog
It was a while back that Gary Vaynerchuk stood up and started spouting Personal Branding in his now infamous video. A firebrand was born and people went on to realise the power and necessity of personal branding.
Why waste the time doing stuff you hate, when you could be doing what you love? Of course to do so takes time, courage and energy. And it also starts with developing your personal brand. I want to cheer you on in all those areas.
Let’s get practical about your homebase. Your Headquarters online.
I’d argue that everyone needs a website. Everyone needs a blog. Whether it comes down to personal branding or growing your own business, growing your own space that is self hosted and owned by you online is essential.
You don’t own Facebook. And with Facebook preventing your updates from reaching your customers, and Twitter about to drive advertising in a huge way too, you need a platform you can own.
Building your own website gives you a platform to share your expertise, knowledge & wisdom and doesn’t need to be hard to maintain, promote and increase your visibility. It needs to be easy and as second nature as sending an email.
Because over time the thoughts add up, your network grows and the opportunities can scale.
But where do you go to work out the practicalities of doing it?
Do you need a techie?
Is it really complicated?
Is it ‘eck!
