We Will Set Up Your Blog For You
If you have no idea how to build a website, the thought of running an online business can be so overwhelming that many people quit before they even begin.
Blog Setup Services
If technology is not your strength, it may take weeks and even months to learn how to setup the blog yourself
Inside The Package
The Blog Setup Service provides you with a ready-made WordPress website, with a premium theme installed and optimized (a Themify premium theme of your choice is included as part of the package for free!) plus installation and configuration of the essential plugins that are must-haves for a new blog.
A PRE-DESIGNED PROFESSIONAL THEME
Included in the package is a professionally pre-designed premium theme of your choice from Themify (worth $49 – but we cover this cost for you).
The latest version of WordPress, the most popular blogging software on the web, installed with your web host.
THEME INSTALLATION & INTEGRATION
We won’t just install your theme, we’ll set it up so it looks as beautiful as the demo on Themify, configured for optimum performance and ready to use.
How the Blog Setup Service works
Frequently Asked Questions
- A pre-designed premium theme worth $49 configured to look like the demo on Themify
- Installation of the latest version of WordPress with your web host
- Installation of six must-have plugins designed to speed up your blog, keep it safe from hackers and spam and assist with editing and formatting content
- Assistance purchasing web hosting and a domain name if you do not have these already
In order to set up your blog you will need to purchase a domain name and web hosting. Some customers may already have one or both of these, but if you don’t (or if you’re not sure what they are!), don’t worry, the Blog Setup Service will provide you with tutorials on how to buy them.
In general, domain names are billed annually and prices start at 99 cents while web hosting is billed either monthly or annually with prices starting at around $4 per month.
Your domain name and web hosting need to be purchased through external companies who will bill you monthly or annually for as long as your website is active online. These will be ongoing expenses for your business, while the Blog Setup Service is a one time fee to get your blog built and live on the web.
Our preferred and recommended web host is BlueHost, but we are happy to work with any hosting provider you choose. However, you must have cPanel and FTP access with your account. Also, we don’t recommend using Managed WordPress Hosting because user limitations mean you (and us) have less control over the server space your blog resides on.

It will take approximately three business days for your new blog to be set up to look like the demo on the Themify website. If we experience a high volume of traffic and cannot meet this timeline, we will advise you as soon as possible.
We will set your blog up to look like the Themify demo version you select from the Themify website. The demo content (images and text) will be imported into your website so you can get a feel for how the site will look when you add your own content. We will show you how to delete it when you start adding your own content.
Otherwise, your blog will be a blank canvas, waiting for you to fill it with pages, blog posts, images, videos and information. The Blog Setup Services package is a bit like hiring a builder to construct a house. We build the walls and the foundations and make sure it is safe to live in, but you will need to take care of the decorating and fill it with content so it feels like a home.
If you have a logo you would like uploaded, email us after you have sent us your details for setting up the blog. Different themes require logos to be different sizes so we will advise what dimensions your logo needs to be to fit the theme you’ve chosen.
Blog Setup Services is a low one time fee only, so we can’t possibly provide ongoing support after your site is setup. If you do need ongoing support with WordPress and the technical side of building your online business after your blog is set up, please contact us to discuss this furthermore.
