I’ve been ‘on-line’ now for 3 years and I have built many, many websites for myself and others.
During those 3 years, I have learnt a huge amount and along the way made numerous mistakes and…making some income along the way (which is always nice).
Now, there are two major concepts you must either learn yourself or have enough money to employ others to do for you:
Over the years I have purchased several products to improve my copywriting skills…in fact I have been mentored by 2 ‘world famous’ Internet gurus (who I shan’t name here for confidentiality reasons).
And yes, my copywriting skills improved…but not to the level I wanted.
So, I thought…who do the internet gurus go to for their copywriting and one name kept coming up…John Carlton.
You heard of John Carlton, the Internet and Copywriting supremo?
I expect you have, as John is the one, many of the big Internet Guru’s (like Frank Kern, John Reese, Jeff Johnson, Yanik Silver, Lorrie Morgan-Ferrero, Rich Schefren, Terry Dean, Dan Kennedy, Gary Bencivenga, Dr. Harlan Kilstein) turn to for copywriting advice.
Well, a little while ago I decided to splash out and join John’s Simple Writing System course. It cost me $2000 and it was the best money I have ever spent on an Internet Marketing type course.
It was perfect for me – a modular approach. Do A, get some feedback from John (and other experts), then do B (get more feedback), then do C…then pull it altogether.
The advice and feedback was priceless.
One thing I noticed about the course…a number of the ‘students’ on the course used WordPress for their websites.
So, that shaped up my copywriting skills.
One concept covered, now…what about getting bundles and bundles of traffic to my sites.
What would be perfect for me would be another modular approach course…I asked John C for some advice/recommendation. He said Jeff Johnson would be perfect for me.
So, I go over to Jeff Johnson’s site and see he is giving away some free SEO software to increase the traffic to your site (if it’s based on WordPress).
There must be something to this WordPress lark.
I do some research and see that WordPress is firstly free and secondly easy to install.
I register and host a ‘throwaway’ domain. Install WordPress. Play with WordPress. This is easy. This is simple. This is efficient. WordPress has an amazing list of features.
I install Jeff Johnson’s Free SEO software…it makes things even easier!
I have been missing out.
I decide to join Jeff Johnson’s Underground Training Lab.
Again…it’s a module approach and you get Jeff Johnson’s customized Professional version of his SEO software…which is the MUCH, MUCH MORE POWERFUL big brother version.
So I’m now hooked on WordPress…it’s easy, it’s simple, it’s free and it has an amazing list of built-in features including:
This is crucial when building a website or blog. WordPress has a number of functions, which allow it to be search engine friendly (and even more so with Jeff Johnson’s FREE SEO software)
Millions of people use WordPress and there is a large user community who develop and support the software. So any problems, do a quick search and you’ll find the answer.
If you want a basic SEO friendly website (and WordPress will give you one)…you don’t need to code ever again. Adding and changing your website is easy with WordPress.
Add-On’s (otherwise known as plug-ins)
There are thousands of add-ons you can use ‘on top of’ the free WordPress software to make your site unique.
So, I am now converted to WordPress. If you are using it already, get over to Jeff Johnson’s site and install his unique free SEO software…you won’t regret it.
If your resource can afford to get your own domain, worpress.org is the best. If you can\’t, blogger is the best, perfect for people with low budget but high in determination.
