GoDaddy

To really set your business up right, you’ll want to host your blog on your own website. Grab a good domain name (or three) at GoDaddy.

HostGator

After you have your domain name, you need a place to host your site. We use and recommend HostGator. You can start with an inexpensive shared hosting account (like the baby croc) and host a number of blogs or websites on that single account. They use cPanel, so they are compatible with WordPress Direct and a host (pun intended) of other online applications and services. If you don’t know what cPanel is yet, don’t worry. It’s a good thing, and you definitely want it. Check it out here.

Swipe File Secrets teleseminar replay (free)

Just about everything you do to make your online (or offline) business successful involves words. Written words, spoken words, headlines, calls to action. Using words in your business is not the same stuff you learned in high school or college. When you write for business, it’s called copywriting, and it can take years to learn. All of the best copywriters have their own swipe files that they use for ideas, phrases, flow. You can cut years and many thousands of dollars (both in courses and lost income) by creating and effectively using your own swipe file.

Click here for instant access to a teleseminar we did recently on Swipe Files. It is 75 minutes long, and comes with a 16 page Action Guide and a 6 page Resource Guide. You’ll have to opt in to get it, and this will add you to our Business Building Shortcuts email contact list for updates and information.
