    Hi everybody,

    I'm not a noob at IM, but i don't know much about wordpress.
    Now i want to start making different blogs on different domains.
    I don't have much money to start, $50.
    Where should i buy web hosting, i heard that Host Gator was good?

    I don't know how to install wordpress, and how to change themes and stuff..

    So i thought i should write something like 10 blogs in Word, and when i buy my web hosting, i can start making blogs verry quickly, is this a good plan or not?

    Anyway thanks

    Go with a cheap hostgator plan.
    Google "how to install wordpress"
    Google "wordpress tutorial"
    Since you are super new to wordpress and blogging, start with one blog and work your way up to 10.

    if you want to go to easy way...go find good hosting with cpanel
    you can install wordpress easily via cpanel fantastico, in my experience it will not take more than 4 minutes to install wordpress via fantastico. Another steps is to install plugins and theme..and that also can be done easily on wordpress admin page itself.

    I'd suggest grabbing one of the free autoblogging spots that some members are currently offering to get a quick look at how ABs are setup and work.

    I knew zero about ABs a couple months ago but grabbed a free AB from a member here.

    A month later of screwing around with the free site I felt comfortable enough to get my own domain and web-hosting. The free site allowed me to really mess up stuff and learn what not to do as well as what works.

    Wordpress is really pretty easy after you set up a few blogs.

    I have a systematic aproach to setting up new blogs now. I can put a AB up with all the "bells and whistles" in about 1 1/2 hours now. Thses are usually indexed by G00gle in 4 to 12 hours.

    Basic information on setting up wordpress is readily available on youtube in a video format, just look up setting up wordpress, or installing wordpress.

    Than once you have the basics start reading the multiple threads here on how to optimize, automate, and get the most out of your sites...

    Get a domain name at namecheap. You can get one thru your hosting but they are cheaper, (hence the name). They also give you free whois protection for a year. Then get hosting. Gator, blueh0st & justh0st all have good reps. Search for online coupons and you can get a reduced rate for the first month.

    Now that's setup, search for how to install wp. Its easy and takes 5 minutes. If you're really stuck, phone your webhost & they may do it for you. After that you will need a theme that reflects your niche. Search for themes in your WP dashboard. It's a one click install & you can change it whenever you want. Some paid themes require FTP upload & that takes a bit more time. Next, install plugins. Search for those in your dashboard & install with one click. Some need additional settings configured, do that in your plugins menu on your dashboard.

    All done. This sounds like a lot but it can be done in less than an hour.

    If your a total newb to Internet Marketing and blogging software etc then my best advice would be this...

    1) Setup your own wordpress blog for testing purposes. Buy a niche targeted domain name that you can develop at a later date into a fully fledged blog.

    You can pick up the basics of wordpress in a day or two just by playing around with it.

    If you decide to outsource the job of setting up blogs then you better be pretty sure about how they are going to provide a return on investment for you.....

    And this leads nicely onto my second point.

    2) THINK & Plan your IM actions through first... (Where is the MONEY?)

    IM is such a huge world and most newbs are overwhelmed with the many techniques and ways to earn cash......Example SEO, writing good copy, getting traffic, picking good products to promote, learning the many ways to promote etc.

    My best advice would be to search this fantastic forum for ways to make money online..... blogging is one such way which can be monetized through affiliate links, ads, list building etc....but just setting up a blog does not equate to instant cash!

    Many IM products from the masters, which show you the various techniques to earning online can be found for free on the forum in the member downloads section. Devour these products to learn the techniques....many are useless, some are gold.

    Find a technique/method you understand and can see yourself making money with. Create ONE blog and make that profitable....THEN repeat the process several times with other blogs to scale up your earnings.

    My best wishes to you and all the other IM newbs out there, the quicker you can learn the more you shall earn.

    peace out :D

    Agreat course that walks you through it is commission ritual(just google it)-it tells you everything you need to know but you will need a few extra dollars for the course.
