WordPress Blog Install

Professional polish for your online presence.

Although WordPress.org brags about a quick 5 minute install, it does take a bit more to make your blog really perform. And don’t forget the search engines. You will want your blog to be loved by all search engines (to help you get visitors). You will also want it to be loved by your readers. It takes a little bit of work to accomplish both goals at the same time.

That’s where I come in.

I have setup more than 100 blogs to date, and have successfully gotten each one on Google’s first page for certain keywords. Some within a matter of minutes after a new post.

So, if you have decided to get a blog and have selected WordPress.org, let me help you get up and running in short order. Let me install WordPress software, add the plugins, install the theme, tweak the blog settings and get it optimized for you. I will even tweak the theme to make it your own personality. (Colors, font’s, even images all work together to express the real *you*).

Now, because there are so many varying skill levels with WordPress, as well as different desires when it comes to what you intend to do with your WordPress Blog Installation, I felt it was important to build packages that could to meet everyone’s needs.

Please Note: Once payment is complete, you will be redirected to a page where you can send me your name, email address, phone number and other information we will need to get started. This step is VERY important.

These are just the highlights, but should give you an idea of what I am offering. If you do it yourself (first time), it will take you about 2 weeks to get it up and running and Search Engine Optimized. And if that’s really the way you want to go, I applaud you! In fact, let me point you to a video that will help you learn how to install WordPress yourself. Drop back by in a couple of weeks, and let me know how it’s going for you.

What My Clients Have Said…

“Cenay under promises and over delivers; definitely goes the extra mile”

Snapshot of WordPress Blog Installation

Cenay not only has extensive technical knowledge (and patience) but also a talent for marketing. It has been my experience that really good technical and marketing skills are not usually found in one person, but she has both. Cenay under promises and over delivers; definitely goes the extra mile. The blog she created for my business is what I was hoping for. Just wish I had found Cenay five years ago!

“..the difference between just having a blog no one sees or having a blog that really works..”

I can give Cenay a personal recommendation as she has helped me with my blog and I can say that she is an expert from personal experience. Cenay over-delivers and really knows her stuff! Having Cenay set up your blog can make all the difference between just having a blog no one sees or having a blog that really works.

“I would never consider working with anyone other than Cenay..”

Snapshot of happy wordpress blog installation customer

There are those who are good at what they do; and then there are gifted people who seem to have a calling. Not only is Cenay a master at her trade, she has the patience of a Saint! In my experience it’s rare to find someone with the technical skills and people skills together. I would never consider working with anyone other than Cenay.

“Cenay is a God send to me…”

Snapshot of happy wordpress blog installation customer

Cenay is a God send to me. I have learned so much from her…. yet it is just a drop in the bucket. She is a wealth of computer knowledge and teaches in such a calm, assertive way. She never gives up on me even when I ask the same question a gazillion times. I wish I could clone her and set her in my office.
