    Hello everyone,
    After some weeks of lurking the forums and reading and trying to learn as much as i can, Ive finally decided that i want to give something a try. Hearing everyone's success stories was very inspirational.

    I am new to the whole IM marketing, and i have no experience with making websites etc. I am a quick learner though and most of it seems to make sense, after reading a while i thought i wanted to try to give this idea a chance is it didnt seem to difficult i think.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/130597-my-consistent-100-day-method-noob-friendly-grey-hat.html
    Im planning on purchasing a domain soon, and for hosting i was wondering how much hosting space would be necessary like i see different providers offering from 20MB to Unlimited.

    And also about wordpress, is it difficult to get installed and to use it? Would someone with limited knowledge about web design have a lot of difficulty?

    What i seek to earn is a consistent 1,000 a month I dont think thats an absurd number as people make plenty more than that. And if some think that the above link method might prove to be a challenge for me Any ideas on how i should go about to make a 1,000 a month?
    Thanks for taking the time to read this, and to those that answer!

    Wordpress on GoDaddy is very easy, it's just like 3 or 4 clicks and it's up and running, now if you want to add plugins or another template, that's another story. Good Luck

    Hey bro.

    Allow me to help you.

    If I were you, I would go with host gator for hosting. I am with them and I love it. They offer more than 20 mb. Technically it is unlimited. You will not have a problem if you are starting out. If not hot gator, blue host was good for me too.

    Hostgator and Bluehost both come with a option of installing Wordpress. It is so simple even a CAVEMAn can do it. Sorry, I could not resist. :D Even a newbie would be able to do Wordpress without a single problem.

    Hope that answered your basic questions. :D

    Ah i guess its not as easy as other people make it to be, what would you say about those cheaper hosting plans like i see some sites offer like 50 cent hosting etc would those be more difficult to get wordpress going? And what makes plugins and template so difficult?

    Not at all. It was rather easy to install some of them.

    IT all depends on what you want to install. The plugins I had to install where simple. If you want, PM me and I can show you a political blog I made with 2 or 3 plugins.

    And by the way, we are not allowed to say thanks here. You should hit the "thanks" button. :D

    I don't mean to be rude, but your questions have been answered several times before and a quick peek at the search function would have made things for you faster :)

    the above is right question were answered before.

    However let me help you out, I use HostIcan and have been for the past year they are fairly cheap and have unlimited bandwidth as well as domain additions that is why I have picked them over others mentioned in the thread, as for installing Wordpress it couldn't get any easier with Cpanel which the hosting provides with.

    You have to have balls and be consistent to make the $$ you want. BH GH WH Offline it doesn't matter. My friend does that method and makes $2k from 2 sites. If you aren't consistent and not testing out more methods streams then you will fail. Goodluck on your venture... :prof01:

    Having the same problem, also have it when I press someones name. I used to get the sub-menu with "View XXX last messages" or "View XXX profile". However I'm not getting it anymore, has something to do with our browsers(settings). Haven't had the time to figure it out

    Ontopic: I think the domain is one of your last concerns if you are a newb to IM. You've been on the forum for 2 weeks? Read more is my honest opinion....

    I would go with Hostgator, just look for the fantastico icon in the cpanel, youll figure it out. Theres a slight learning curve for wordpress but its well worth it. Also, theres a shitload of premium wordpress themes in the download section here

    Hostgator for hosting. Unlimited space, bandwidth and domains from under $10 a month. From their cpanel app click on Fantastico De Luxe and wordpress is one of the options for automatic install.
