If you want to hit the ground running – you’re in the right place.
Begin setting up your WordPress website by creating three static pages.
- About – where you share information about you and/or your business
- Contact – where you share information on how potential customers/clients can contact you
- Benefits Driven Message Page
While it’s perfectly acceptable to name the first two pages “About” and “Contact” – whatever you do – please don’t title the third page “Benefits Driven Message”. Instead, follow the 5 Laws of Creating Benefit Driven Messages to create a Benefit Driven Message for your product or service. Once you’ve crafted a finely tuned Benefit Driven Message, use it as the name of your third page. (Feel free to keep creating Benefit Driven Messages for your business – and be sure to create a page or a post using the Benefit Driven Message as your title.)
Watch the Adding a New Page video tutorial to learn how to add pages to your website.
Watch this tutorial if you want WordPress to act like a website instead of a blog.
Before you begin creating blog posts, you should first set up your blog’s categories. Watch the tutorial on Working with Categories.
Then, start Adding posts to your blog. Ideally, some of your blog posts should expand upon the information you shared in your Benefits Driven Message page. When you create a blog post which relates to or expands upon the information shared on the Benefits Driven Message page – you should create a hyperlink from the page to the blog post.
That’s how quickly and easily you can begin creating content in WordPress.
