This was part of a series of webinars I am doing for the Business Lunch Series at the Vernon Area Public Library.

Lots of great information in this hour-long webinar and we had some great Q&A at the end.

Some of the highlights we discussed were:

  • Four reasons blogging can help your business get found on the web
  • How to choose the right blog platform for your business
  • Integrating your blog into your website
  • Five essential plugins that will make blogging easier
  • Best practices to ensure your blogging success
Some of the resources I mentioned were:
Hosting sites:
Hostgator (What I use – love them!)




Resources for setting up a blog:
Find free tutorials online – a good resource is Denise Wakeman’s Blog:


Get a fantastic step-by-step program that will help you get a custom theme, install your header, and build a WordPress website you love with Site Setup Kit
They also have a free webinar tutorial here:  “Love Your Website” webinar


Or you can hire a WordPress designer to transfer your website into WordPress, or build a whole new website from scratch.  Typically $750-2500 and up.


I also do one-on-one consulting and can help with blogging questions and strategy.  More info here:  social media coaching
