Learn how to start a blog and make money!

Blogging is huge right now! Do you dream of running a successful online business which allows you to enjoy more autonomy? If so, you should know that learning how to create a blog will be the key to setting up an online business which attracts the interest – and sales – of customers all over the world!

While the idea of starting a blog yourself, without outsourcing the task to a web design firm, may seem a little daunting, you should know that the process really isn’t that difficult or complicated. In fact, thanks to the power of WordPress, which allows for simple and straightforward blog creation, even without technical skills, it’s actually possible to make a blog in the amount of time that it takes to drink just one cup of coffee!

In other words, mere minutes are all that will be required in order to create your own blog from scratch! Now, we’d like to share some important facts which will help you to put together a truly wonderful blog. Your new blog will function as a perfect venue for online money-making…

Get Familiar with WordPress

WordPress is a blog creation and management application, which is utilized by millions of people all over the globe. The truth is that you don’t need to bone up on WordPress in order to make a blog with the platform.

However, learning more about this practical and popular platform certainly won’t hurt. In fact, it’s bound to make the process more enjoyable, as you’ll understand what WordPress is and how it’s used in order to create different themes, palettes and functional elements (such as web pages, blog posts and Widgets)

Created in order to offer true “WYSIWYG – What You See Is What You Get” performance, this intuitive and user-friendly interface is the subject of countless blogs, tutorials and articles, all of which are available online. Many people who want to build their own blogs choose to watch convenient and entertaining video tutorials in order to gather skills and step-by-step instructions – you can do it, too.

Bear in mind that WordPress comes with help features which are perfect for newbies just like you. So, it is definitely possible to explore, to learn and to gain assistance while you’re creating your new blog.

It’s As Easy as 1,2,3

Basically, there are three steps to self-creating a blog. You’ll need to register your preferred domain name and arrange hosting of the domain name and website ( is your safest bet for domain purchase, domain hosting and website hosting). Once you’ve done this, it’s time for step two, which is all about utilizing WordPress in order to create the ideal blog for your needs.

In order to begin with WordPress, you will need to enter ID information which is provided to you via your hosting company. This will open up your website and allow you to work within the WordPress platform. The last step is publishing your new website via WordPress and your hosting company.

As you can see, getting a self-created website up and running is really as easy as 1,2,3!

You Can Make Money Online

Now that you know what’s involved with starting a blog, you’ll be ready to decide if doing so is really right for you. If you do choose to build your own blog, you’ll develop WordPress skills which will allow you to manage and update your website in the future.

So, aside from the small amount of energy that you’ll need to invest, learning how to build a blog has no downside and it does offer tons of advantages.

Make your online business ambitions into reality. Start your own blog today!

  3. Thanks for awesome n helpful video.
    I made one WP site with another theme, Can I integrate this blog in that too?

  4. Typo in the last paragrapg of the description – You’ve written ‘blof’ instead of ‘blog’

  5. you are soo cool.. how long you make these videos ? i believe it would take forever for me.. hehe.. what tools do you use to make these videos ?

  6. Thanks for sharing very good tutorial on creating SEO friendly website and explaining marketing strategies on web.. Thank you very much!!!

  7. Hi James, If I hire you on how to create an online store and also blogging. How much you gonna charge to me?

  8. Great video James, I really appreciate all the insight and information. Cheers from Huntington Beach

  9. hi James! Thank you so much for making this video. It helped me a lot in creating my new blog: I just have a question though, I followed all the instructions though I can’t seem to understand why I’m getting an error 404 on my about and contact page. I’ve tried to redo the steps in creating pages and menus but it is still not working. Can you help me?

  10. Hi James. I’m curious why your settings in WordPress are different. I do not have a Permalinks.

  11. Hi James! Great stuff! You got me into using SumoMe again after giving up on it because it was SO confusing. Anyway. I have two questions for you. Does SumoMe alert subscribers everytime a post is completed? If so or if not, is there an easy way to do this. Second. On your site you also have horizontal social share icons. The SumoMe ones are too boxy. I like how yours look. Is that a custom design or can I get those social share icons somewhere?

  12. Hello James! First off: great video! Not just advertising, but an actionable tutorial! Thanks & Thumbs up for this!
    Also, may I ask what Soft/App are you using for your animated video segments – for example around minute 63 in the video… Would love to look into that as well! Cheers; I’m gonna’ carry on watching the rest of your tutorials!

  13. Great Video! However, you didn’t talk about how to create a Lead Magnet and how to get the site visitors receive it when they drop their emails. Please, kindly advise on that. Thanks

  14. I’ve been looking for a video for wordpress blogging for beginners for the entire day. Finally found it. The best on youtube that I found. Thanks!

  15. Hi James- Thank you so much for your super helpful videos. Trying to install wp super cache- its no longer available due to “performance/ security/ compatibility issues”. Will Zen Cache do? Please advice. Thanks!

  16. I just want to thank you for making this video. Its been incredibly helpful to me in setting things up for the first time having no experience what so ever. You are an awesome person!

  17. Hi James…grt video. But my blogs isn’st showing full length on mobile device. Please can you suggest. Thanks,

  18. Absolutely great tutorial. My blog is up and running and it looks great thanks to the instructions given by James. Now just need to promote my blog. Thank you James!

  19. Hi James! Love your videos. I am leaning more towards using Square Space but I’d like your input. Aside from e- commerce, is Square Space a profitable platform to use? This will be my first blog.

  20. This is awesome and valuable!
    I just got this strange idea that some day everyone will be marketing themselves from their home, and in the end there will be no hard working farmers, no factory workers because everyone spends time leading each other into their blogs with lead magnets lol

  21. Nice tutorials James.
    My problem is after installing that list builder by sumome i can’t find that badge on the right top corner..
    Any suggestions??Ty

  22. can i ask how you do these awesome animations in between your screen captures? The ones where different icons come together and stuff. It looks really neat just wondering how you throw them together? I have seen these vectors on shutterstock but do not know how you go about animating the different aspects like you do in this video. Thanks for the in-depth tutorial!

  23. I just bought a domain hosting for a year through host gator, and never got a welcome email… wasted my money, I am very confused and sad

  24. whats the plan that is mentioned in hostgator ?? like baby plan and hatchling plan ?? single domain and unlimited ?? i need detailed explanation on these, because i m totally confused as to what the plans are all about…please reply at the earliest…

  25. i want to start a blog of my own , which plan is better hatchling or baby plan ??…..and what do u mean my multiple blogs ??

  26. Hi James, I don’t know why when I hit list and went to sign up forms it didn’t show up the same form to verify my email after forwarding like in your videos. Why is that. and how can I check to see if I set the email forwarding right or not.

  27. This is great. Analysis was murder; your way is a lot better. I found an easy to put the code that goes under the post, from another video. and wouldn’t do their job and I ended up losing $60 with These “workers” are sociopath. I don’t know why they decline from doing their jobs. These parasites have to be people whose gave made their persona non grata.

  28. can you help on my wordpress blog on wordpres domain in settings plugins there is only option to upgrade to payed hosting. it it me so noob or it is only optional to instal plugins only in payed way there?

  29. the sumome discover doesn’t display on my category page. say if i press entertainment and it shows all my entertainment articles, discover is not there. i cant find an option to put it there.

  30. Great video James. But one thing… If I come to a page with all that “subscribe now”. “learn more” and many more of that buttons and pop-ups I am gone in a flash. Too much of that stuf will turn many people away whatever the content on the blog.

  31. with wp super cache, I follow the directions but get this Need Help Screen. can you help?

    Need Help?

    Use the debug system in the Debug tab above. It will tell you what the plugin is doing.

  32. Wowwwww…your video is so well done! it really helped and encouraged me to create my own blog. The step by step instructions are a winner 🙂
    Thanks! please keep doing what you do because you are helping so people like me. Cheers

  33. Hey James, do you offer any videos for creating SEO friendly posts? More specifically, do you offer any tutorials on how to score the green light using Yoast SEO for WordPress?

  34. Awesome video, James. Never thought I could set up a blog, but with this video, I am 98% ready to go! A lot of work–but so worth it. I could never have figured it out on my own. Been working from home for 10 years, & am looking forward to another 10 at least blogging my way to six figures!

  35. New to website building and wordpress and blogging here! I know right.. better late than never but this video helped me so much. NO jargon and easily understood. Great help indeed. Thanks a bunch.

  36. I think host gator has changed their website because I cannot get to the page with all the app icons.

  37. You know what is rather stupid?  That you spend the first 3 minutes(I stopped before the 3 minute mark) explaining why your idea for blogging is the BEST in the world!  How about you shut up and get straight into some answers, instead of wasting our god damned time?

  38. James, you saved me! At 8am this morning the WordPress dashboard looked like the instrument panel to a jet to me. Now my blog is up and running. I took about 5 hours today watching your video, then pausing, doing the steps, watching, pausing. I seriously did not think I was going to be able to do this. Thank you so much Bro. It was lovely spending the day with you!

  39. This was the most helpful video this far! I really appreciate it. I’m now following you!

  40. Hi James, Great tutorial and I love the way you communicate each of the how-to steps clearly and concisely with just enough explanation for a non-techie newbie like me. I’m at the plug-in selection stage and found that WP Fast Cache is no longer available with WordPress, nor is WP Fastest Cache. Which alternative do you recommend? Thanks again for your guidance!

  41. ok, ive given it…overnight and then some and STILL cant log into the control panel

  42. A quick question , I have already signed up with my domain through WordPress with a free site but from my understanding if WordPress host it we can’t add plugins what would you suggest to do in this situation

  43. Hi! Excellent tutorial, congrats! What if I already purchased a domain on WordPress? I should write on Hosgator my existing domain but, do I keep my actual username and password? How can I switch?

  44. the shareme plugin from sunome somehow does not work for me. it never shows up on my website no matter how many times i try…

  45. Hey James, What is up with HostGator now having WordPress hosting option on their homepage. I noticed that was not the case in your tutorial.

  46. James i came across your video and i got pumped to try to do this myself. I currently have a blog on but i want my own domain and hosting. i have a question for you how would i move my blog to hostgator, i want freedom from but i want to keep all the data i already have. I’m just deciding to take blogging seriously and getting traffic to my blog.

  47. $10.00 a month only if you know how to build a web site which I find, is very difficult. You’ll end up spending more to have a pro build your website.

  48. Hey, my question is do I need to have a hosting site or I can I just use wordpress as the host?
    Thank you

  49. This is very informative. I started mine months ago with affiliate buttons on different subjects and starting to see revenue coming in. Word press is a great blog and others should use it.

    Here is my blog so you can see that yes I agree with you blog a lot and add your affiliate buttons.

    I subscribe to you and hope you do the same 🙂

  50. Hi James am failing to Re-authenticate my Google account on google analytics

  51. Thanks this helped me jump start my blog in a matter of 5 hrs of setting everything up!

  52. Thank, you! I have been wanting to create a blog for 3 months, now. But, I was overwelmed by the mass of info. You have saved me from headaches in the future.

Well played sir! You have a new fan and maybe even a long term customer as i start to develop my online presence. Thanks so much James!

  56. James,
    Awesome information. Thanks for that. Better if you add few more about setting up advertise on your website via google ad and how can earn money etc. because people who knows nothing, it is very essential for them to know.

  57. Visit this site if you are interested in earning an extra 200 dollars each day online fast: *JoxMoney. com*

  58. I’m working on following your instructions but i can’t seem to get the authentication of analytics to go thru, and i have done it enuf! Any suggestions?

  59. James help! Was going strong through your tutorial and became very sick…so I lost my flow on learning, I have gotten to about 46.44 minutes in the lesson and I can’t find services on my dashboard so that I can select MailChimp and continue on. I apologize for bothering you but the disease I have can make it very hard to concentrate when I have a flare-up. My first blog will be about my disease, and hopefully help others cope with MCTD.

  60. Hi James, I have a huge problem and I really hope you can help me 🙁 … I clicked install word press once I had entered all my details except my blog address and, when I tried to install it again with ALL my details it says ‘error invalid information’!! So, I don’t have a link to my blog… how do I fix this or how do I cancel everything including hostgator and start all over again?? Your help will be so appreciated!

  61. James, sorry I figured it out! Just needed to be off my meds for 24hrs to get my head clear enough. Sorry to bother you so much and what a great lesson!

  62. Hi friend your video is very nice and informative i can write SEO friendly and amazing article of about 500 to 600 words on any topic for your website and blog only in 2 dollars if you need my services contact now

  63. Hi James, I just started my blog. My theme is Simple Catch. I did look at the 2016 theme. Because I have photo’s of food & wine. I want an image slider to show off my photo’s. Can I do that with 2016? Thank you. Tamara

  64. Hi James I am loving this tutorial. However I have been unable to forward my email to my gmail account through Mailchimp. I read recently that mailchimp have changed something. Any advice?

  65. Hi Could you please make a video where you list all the Plugins one must have for a good blog

  66. Excellent video. This video is exactly what I needed and help set my blog. Thank you for your awesome tips.

  67. the video is awesome
    it’s even better buttons using those material images
    where do you get the images from??

  68. It is a wonderful video! Only thing is, you didn’t tell HOW to sell our items, or what app to use. 🙁

  69. Thank You for Your Time This is by far the BEST Tutorial  on  WordPress …I actually got it NOW. especially the relation to Categories and PagesThe amount of information , tips, and yes your  in sharing was awesome..   Took seven pages of NOTES Pnapika

  70. One of the best tutorials on youtube imo.
    I don’t really get the “Lead Magnet” step tho, visitors can’t click it?

  71. Help! I’m half way through & my sumome tool bar disappeared! Anyone know what to do?

  72. Greetings James, thanks much for this detailed video about blogging. I want to start two very good profitable blogs, not just for money but also to help people. Ok what I need to know is how do I point and click, and insert little pictures and explanations how you are currently doing right now as you explain you add little snippets. How do I do that please?

  73. This is by far the best How to Create a Blog video I have seen. For the past 4 months, I have been struggling away. Your video is exactly what I needed to watch. Thank you, Thank you. One suggestion, I wish you would have mentioned your blog’s name more often. Many times I would think, “I am visiting his blog, what’s the name.?” I hope you generate lots of new customers, you definitely know your stuff. Thank you again and again.

  74. hey ,if anyone else needs to find out about clickbank make money online try Panlarko Amazing Clickbank Planner ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some decent things about it and my colleague got great results with it.

  75. What an amazing video! I was toying with the idea of starting a free WordPress Blog, then wait until I have a few hundred subscribers to upgrade to a paid version. After watching this video I realize it would be damn near impossible to get my blog noticed or have it be compelling enough to get any subscribers without many of these plugins. Thanks for the info, even though I have zero experience, I feel that I can do it with the help of this video.

  76. Hi James, why is it my sidebar is not visible….the categories that suppose to appear on the sidebar does not appear

  77. I seem to have issues whereby when I follow along with you to set up mt WordPress site, it looks nothing like what you are showing in the tutorial. Or, am I the only one experiencing this???? I’m finding it very frustrating as I am not literate when it comes to doing this stuff!! 🙁

  78. Awesome tutorial. I am gonna put this knowledge to practice in the next few days. Will share the results after am done. Thank you for taking the time to show us. Its really helpful.

  79. Not complaining James. Before I started watching your video, I spent three days staring at the computer completely confused. I’m a very smart lady, but I still am not a computer expert. I’m a writer. Give me a subject, I can write something about it. Problem is, I know nothing about how to set up my blog. YOU are helping me with that. Thank you!!

  80. OK, I’m lost. What is Cloud Hosting? What should my blog name be? I want it to be, I Wanna Be Frank. Is that good enough? I’m using my real name as author. This is where I start getting really confused.

  81. I truly enjoyed the class. I’m eager to get started. Question though, do you offer more indept training to newbies like me or done-for-you sites?

  82. Early on, the “google analytics by yoast” plugin is not available in the search. It has been taken over by “google analytics by monsterinsights” which is still the top one in the search. I hope this helps.

  83. Don’t forget to increase your php-memory size to use all those plugins without getting errors.

  84. James, thank you so much for producing this EXCELLENT instructional video. I liked & subscribed to your channel. I hit the pause button a zillion times to incorporate the components into my blog, as you were teaching them. I just need to fine tune and start creating pages with my content. You caused me to actually think about how to fit all of my individual pieces together to be cohesive. As I was going about my day, I noticed a lot of the features you taught me were on and some of the other news channels. I never would have figured this out without you. You ROCK!

  85. Loved the video! I’m am new to the blogging world and am now feeling a little more confident in getting started. So thank you!!

  86. 29:24 no longer looks like your video. What is a SLUG? Do I write on the meta description after I press edit snippet?

  87. James, it took me about 8 go back to the video to get this done. You have some marvelous step by step stuff, and yes it is step by step. Now I gotta figure out what and for whom. I can’t thank you enough for this.

  89. I have typed in Google Analytics by yoast in 7 times. Looked it up on google and I still can’t get it to pop up on the plugins page. Is it under another name now?

  90. +James Stafford Thank you for this amazing and awesome information. I am going to re-watch the video and follow all the steps.
    One thing though, how and where do you get the pictures for your blog? For eg the ones you put as the Featured Image? Do I have to take these high quality pictures myself? because I know I can’t just use any old image from google image search due to copyright reasons. You answer will be truly helpful. Thank you

  91. Good Video – has Google Analytics by Yoast been replaced? Can’t seem to find it no matter how hard I look. Is there an equivalent add-in? Thanks.

  92. When I search for Google Analytics by Yoast it doesn’t come up. Is it no longer available?

  93. Hello James, i do not have the permalink under the Settings, could it be true?! Did they move them in another section? Your assistance would be appreciated!

  94. James you will not believe me but only your vedio helped me out to install my wordpress and blog. Yes you are right. After purchasing hosting from bluehost, not their customer support helped how to install, or if i’m watching or reading the steps of installation none of the vedio make me understand (i’m not saying they explained it wrong may be their way of explaination doesnt helped me to make me understand in a better way). But After crying, fighting, helping from friends and vedio today i opened your vedio randomly, I quickly establised/set up my blog through wordpress by bluehost control panel. Phew!…Big Thank to you. Wishes you best in your life.

I have over 250 of these bad boys so I need to get started like NOW. Is a blog the best way to use these domain names, some of which are now quite aged?

  99. I cant find the Google analytics by yoast pluggin. Could you direct me here? thank you!

  121. You successfully got me interested in the video, but you only actually began to do something 15 minutes into the video. And all you really did is recommend plugins.

  127. Using Adsense wouldnt maximize your profits? Just curious. New to the blogging world and everyone keeps talking about adsense. How come you dont use it on your blog?

  128. Ok, I’m also Blogger from Expression of Creative Writing and Minds. I wanted to know how can I make money regarding for the audience to see? I tried Google ad sense and it didn’t work at all. Mind of asking.

  129. I am a total beginner when it comes to setting up a blog so I decided to follow along with this tutorial. I was doing quite well until I come to the section verify email address on mail chimp approx 45 mins in. When I click on lists then my subscriber list and signup forms I get a totally different screen to what is shown in this video. On mine it brings up a screen saying general forms, embedded forms, subscriber popup, and form integrations. Why am I not getting the same screen as you? All help will be greatly appreciated. I’m really stuck on this section. Thanks

  130. sir ! please post another video for the substitute of SumoMe as SumoMe is not compatible for the latest version of wordpress. Therefor a big portion of your vedio became useless. This is an emergency requirement of substitute plugin of SumoMe. Please Sir.

  131. Hi James! Namaste! Thank you for this tutorial. I am finding it very helpful, and I have shared it on my FB wall. I could not find the google analytics by yoast plugin. Has it been removed by google? Is there an alternative which I can use? This is how far I have gotten. Thanks for your support! Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance!☀️

  132. why can’t I find Google Analytics by Yoast?  Where is it?  Has it had a name change?

  133. Here’s the problem, why would someone want to subscribe to any website for junk emails?

  134. Great Video.

    Although the “It’s awwwwesome.” could get a bit irritating. But still overall, great delivery of valuable content.

  135. This video is amazing. Quick question: I Cant seem to find the plug in for google analytics by yoast, has the name changed to something else? Or is there another plug-in that is similar?

  136. love your enthusiasm. And great video by the way. I found it to be very helpful. Thank you!

  137. That was awesome! I absolutely feel like I can start my first blog and it will be stunning!!! Thanks for doing a walk through, step by step tutuorial. Getting started today!! Thanks James, you’re amazing!!!

  138. Can you do this if you want to do it on your existing blog that you already have posts on??

  139. Thank you! I love this 🙂 So helpful. Ive been thinking about starting a blog for a while and this has made that possible! I have a channel as well and I would love it you guys gave it a look!

  140. This is amazing, thank you! I got to 42min and I get an error saying Mailchimp is a List builder pro feature. To enable exporting to Mailchimp please upgrade to List builder Pro and is asking me to pay $. Could you please let me know if this changed or if I did something wrong? Thank you so much!

  141. I installed MailChimp but can’t connect to lists because SumoMe says MailChimp is a pro level feature. Have I done something wrong?

  142. excellent video preparation with graphics, which tool you are using for mixing video, thank for upload

  143. Very useful and possibly the best edited video I’ve ever come across. BRILLIANT!

  144. When I attempt to connect MailChimp in the list builder it tell me “MailChimp is a SumoMe Pro feature. To enable exporting to MailChimp Please upgrade to SumoMe Pro.” Now what because I’m not upgrading.

  145. For those who are starting, if you want to have all the functionality talked in this video, you need to pay $240 additional for the SumoMe features

  146. I removed MOJO plugin, but the coming soon page is still showing up when I try posting the link anywhere? Any suggestions? or how long does it for my page to go live

  147. When I try to connect mailchimp to sumome it is telling that all of those email service providers are a feature of sumome pro and now cost 20/month. Does anybody know of a way to still do this for free as it seems to be on this video tutorial? Thank you!

  148. Time to update this video. SumoMe is now telling me I have to upgrade to the pro version to be able to link mailchimp

  149. You are amazing I loved it !!!………Thank you so much you made my life a better place:)

  150. I got the information about ”Mojo Make Money System” from my friend. Now this gives me a much better profit than this across my can try it..

  151. James, awesome training man.. you rock! I was up all night learning and applying and I am back for more.. Thank you on behalf of all grand-moms.. (Deep bow).

  152. you really  glossed over the traffic part9 most important part)  and getting traffic to your blog is the most difficult part >
    without it your dead in the water.

  153. This video has helped so much! I couldn’t find google analytics, and seems like a cool plugin.

  154. Thanks James, I followed this tutorial step by step, Nice. although I couldn’t find “google analytics by yoast” any other good recommendation? Thanks alot

  155. Is this helpful. Yes. Is it easy. Yes IF you’re a computer geek AND have all the required info BEFORE you start the video. I am on my second month of getting my web site up and running. It was taken me a total of 142 hours, so far, to do all that is suggested. I’ve had to go and learn what many of the things he’s asking me to do mean. I’ve had to invent the content that is necessary to build this blog site.
    I would suggest you find a list of WHAT YOU NEED TO HAVE TO BUILD A BLOG SITE before you ever push the start button. If I would have had the necessary items ready, it would have been so much faster.
    Right now I’m stuck on social. I don’t know what that means as far as the links I’m suppose to provide. Is that my facebook page? My linkedin link? I don’t know. James has a nicely put together file all all the items he needs to place in the example blog site.
    So If you’re a beginner like me, this is VERY time consuming and doable. I’ll let you know when I”m up and running.

  156. great and informative video! If I don’t have anything to sell can I still have a profitable blog? Sorry for the basic question I’m new to all this. 🙂

  157. Hi James thanks for sharing. I followed your tutorial but i mistakenly added two contact forms to my contact page. how do i get rid of one of the forms?

  158. James: If I am going to use a Divi plugin/theme, should I install before I follow along?

  159. Thanks for this awesome video, I literally couldn’t so it without your help! One question though, I installed Mailchimp and tried to get it to link with SumoME and it will not work, it looks as though SumoMe is no longer free, is there an alternative that I could use for SumoMe that would still allow me to use my Mailchimp account? Thanks

  160. Thank You, truly very informative, love your enthusiasm, loved the plugins and widgets.

  161. WordPress is a JOKE. This is the 4th time that I have had to start from scratch because something went wrong with WordPress

  162. Really helpful video. I watch show many videos but, your video is really good than all them. Your detailed information is really remarkable. thanks!

  163. Hi James. Thank you for this tutorial, it’s brilliant. I am having trouble though. Every time I try to authenticate my site with Google with Yoast, it tells me there is “no profile found” and I can’t authenticate. I’ve emailed Yoast but still waiting for a reply. Can you help at all please?

  164. Hey James thanks for your help. SumoMe didn’t work on my Mac probably because of Adblock or something else blocking it but I went to university today and it worked on a uni computer. I got most things working except the smartbar hahaha
    Thanks for making stuff a lot easier!! Keep doing what you do best: excite and inform!

  165. This is one heck of a good tutorial on blogging good job on it just wanted to stop in and give my 2 thumbs up.

  166. Is this example from org? My understanding is that you cannot monetize the .com version.

  167. Not sure I’m “live” but I did finish this training. A total of 158 hours, but it’s done and I’ve learned a lot. There are several things on my site that aren’t working properly or aren’t showing up, but I think I can go back and figure it out. I”m not as virginal as when I started. I’m not a computer programmer (yet) but I can be proud of what I’ve done.
    Go for it!!! Feels wonderful to finish something you’re never done before.

  168. Excellent video and info, thank you. FYI – SumoMe now needs SumoMe Pro for Mail chimp and other services, unless i missed that part in the video :/ looking for alternative

  169. SumoMe now not allowing free user to connect with MailChimp..anyother free alternative ..tested on 7/12/16

  170. Great video James!
    Just ashame that to connect the MailChimp with SumoMe you have to be SumoMe Pro.
    Question…what is going to happend with my email with I do not connect the both accounts?
    Thanks a lot 🙂

  171. very awesome tutorial. I already signed up for word press with a free domain name but I didn’t use host gator because I started before I watched this video. Do I have to restart the process or can I go to host gator and sign in my free WordPress domain? (I wish I would’ve watched this before lol)

  172. Dear James Stafford, SumoMe says that the mail service feature is now a SumoMe pro only feature, hence it does not allow welcome mat or list builder to be connected to Mailchimp Is there a way around this or another method?

    Thank you for all you effort in the videos, it has really helped me.

  173. maybe Im to dumb but fuck I find it soo complicated to get anything done in wordpress. Nothing works the way it does in your tutorial. my blog looks shit and doesnt work -.-

  174. Amazing Tutorial!! I am a total computer idiot but I never gave up my dream of making my own website.Then I saw your video among the 100’s of blogging tutorials,I follow those clear instructions while watching it and wala !!I have my website so instantly and now ready to fill it up with my topics.Thank you very,very much.

  175. List builder no longer works with Mail chimp for free. You either have to pay $20 a month or generate a CSV file and manually place it into Mail Chimp.

  176. Hello James Stafford, that is what appeared below when i wanted to connect to Sumome through Mailchimp
    MailChimp is a SumoMe Pro feature. To enable exporting to MailChimp please upgrade to SumoMe Pro.

  177. Has anyone else had the problem of connecting Mailchimp/SumoMe now being a pro only feature? Thanks for this awesome tutorial by the way!!

  178. Hey James, I have a question. What if we already have a wordpress blog account & we are just trying to now buy our own domain name for it? Is the process different then when you are starting from scratch? Thank you!

  179. Sumo is now requiring a $20/month pro account to connect List Builder and Welcome Mat with Mailchimp. Any way to work around that or recommendations on less costly plugins?

  180. This is a question that I always have with starting or making a blog. Do you need to pay to create a blog, post a blog, etc.? Or is it completely free? Because I really want to make a personal blog that I could share things without paying to make it. If you know more, it’d be very helpful if you could answer further.

  181. The Google Analytics by Yoast seems not available James. A substitute comes up called Google Analytics by MonsterInsights where I read many complaints about it. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thank you James, Gaston

  182. I have not completed listening to this video, but so far, it is great, and I will continue the quest. Thank you.

  183. Fuck this, I just want an XBOX 1 ;-; if any1 is rich and wants to give meh 1 pm me

  184. It has taken me two days to go 44 minutes, while this is “easy” to follow, all of the screens are not the same so I come to a standstill. When I got to the e-mail part, it all went downhill! When I get to “signup forms” on Mail Chimp it is a different screen also. Sorry, you are very easy to follow but now I can go no further because even when I go to sumo store to click on share, that is part of the $20 pro plan. I’m at a screeching halt. Can you advise us how to get through this step?

  185. Thank you for this tutorial :). I was thinking of using the Nisarg theme should I switch to your suggested theme?

  186. I’m at a roadblock. I just reached the point where we are the sign forms tab to verify email forwarding. When I select sign up forms my screen doesn’t offer the option to select verification of email

  187. Too useful stuff found here finally…..Highly appreciate your work
    Thanks For sharing 🙂 Happy viewer 🙂

  188. Wonderfull Tutorial so far!!!!
    All the plugins, u installed in the tutorial, are those plugins free or do we need to pay?

  189. Hi James,

    I really like the video but i got a question….
    first of all … do you have a video or manual of how to make money from blogging? this video shows how to create a blog but not where specifically to get the money also,
    Can you create a store with word press like an online shop like shopify?

  190. With respect to MailChimp and SumoMe, it is stating that a Sumome Pro account is necessary for $240 a year. Is this the case in your experience? Is there another free way to go about this?

  191. Hi James! Great video so far but I’ve been having trouble with mail chimp. It keeps saying I need to sign up to sumome pro! Do they no longer offer a free service? I don’t want to pay for this service yet until I’ve got everything ready to go. Thanks for your help!

  192. GREAT vid. first of all TY very much. Got a question, i did everything same, but have no permalinks tab in my dashboard? It changed recently? TY

  193. I’m about 40 minutes into this video, and it’s suggested linking MailChimp to SumoMe, and that requires the $20/month pro version of SumoMe. Hmmm…..not sure that I’m wanting to put $20 a month into this since I’m just starting. Is there a totally free way to get a list built and linked to Mail Chimp? I have the mail chimp already and love it – but it’s not connected to the blog at this point. Thanks so much~

  194. Very useful video tutorial, thanks for sharing. it’s my request please make video on Google Adsense too, Thanks and great work.

  195. Thanks James, with this training I can improve the blog I already have and also start another one.

  196. james cant bring up google analytics by yoast,  all I get is google analytics by monsterinsight

  197. 9:55 “All you need to do is follow along with me. All it takes is just 3 simple steps, so let’s dive right in.” Dude, if 10 minutes has passed, you are no longer allowed to use the phrase “let’s dive right in”. You just aren’t. And then right after you said that, you didn’t dive right in…you said “but first a little disclaimer.” Like holy shit get to the point!

  198. I am at the point to add mail chimp but now says it is only available if I pay SumoMe Pro for $39.00?

  199. I can’t connect SumoMe to MailChimp. It’s saying that is only a SumoPro feature. Is there a different service we can connect for free?

  200. it says i need to ay 20/month on SumoMe in order to connect MailChimp to my List Builder. What do i do?

  201. for sign up forms on mail chimp, which do I chose?
    General Forms
    Embedded Forms
    Subscriber Pop-Up
    Form Integration.

  202. MailChimp is a SumoMe Pro feature. To enable exporting to MailChimp please upgrade to SumoMe Pro.

  203. its been over three hours and I still keep getting error page can someone help?

  204. It says in order to connect mail chimp to sumo me i need the Sumo Me Pro package 40.00 bucks. should i just skip this step?

  205. Sir my account is disapprove now what can i do how google gave me approval?? plzzz answer me fast

  206. mailchimp is a summome pro feature so it’s not getting connected with my lost builder what to do?

  207. SumoMe is saying that in order for me to connect I need to purchase SumoMe Pro. Is it no longer free? If so, what do I do?

  208. Making money online is a passion.Anyone can earn money by following some guidelines.If you want Just search google “jestifa easy system” and follow strategy.

  209. Yeah made a blog entry on my YouTube today may start daily or weekly doing that then start writing one too perhaps

  210. Thanks for your tutoring!
    My domain email and my gmail are not synced yet.
    How can I retrieve the verification code? I have no access to my domain email account… (45:00 on your video)

  211. Hi James! I trained your mom here at the gym in Texas. She told me about you about a year ago. I am currently getting into the online space and came across your videos again. Great info! I just built out my back end of my business system and starting to create content for the blog part of my site.

  212. When I searched for the plugin Google Analytics by Yoast, I got 72 hits, but this one was not there. Any suggestions?

  213. I am doing this step by step! Although I have to go back to reference points often, It’s because I am trying to soak it all up. Great vid! Thank You!

  214. When setting up MailChimp, I hit CONNECT, and instead of getting the Log In page, I get a dialog box: “MailChimp is a SumoMePro feature. To enable exporting to MailChimp please upgrade to SumoMePro.” I’m not ready to pay $120 at this time. How did you manage to do it on the Basic Free plan?

  215. A question which website you use to buy or register your domain name? I know you use hosgator to host.

  216. Hey James, this has got to be the most useful video about blogs on Youtube, thank you so much.
    I see you monetise your blogs with sales, so can you tell me what your opinion on AdSense is? Does it work to make some extra income? Do you use it?
    I’m planning to set up multiple blogs on underrepresented niches (not going to write articles myself), so I wonder if I have to set up all the settings over and over again or if I can save them as default and use them on multiple blogs?
    Do I have to pay fees for WordPress AND Hostgator? How much do I have to pay monthly in total (for one or multiple blogs)?
    Once again, totally love what you’re doing!

  217. I already have a domain and website with WIX. Can I use this same Domain name to start a Blog with WordPress or another platform? Confused?!!!

  218. Im a somewhat newbie to blogging however you tutorial was AWSOME and very thorough. I did how ever have to purchas the Summonme Pro for $25 per month because the Free version wasn’t available with all the features. So you might wa`t to update that in your tutorials. GREAT VIDEO. DID you pre-write your content before creating thi video first?

  219. When you set up for a customer to get free product , they give email, how do they get the free product? Do you have to go to your email and send each one or is there a way that when they click that , that the free product automatically sends

  220. Is the Yoast Google Analytics still available? I cant find it. What else could i use? Thank you!

  221. Quick install was completed at 2:20pm. It is now 11:08. I still can’t get onto my new website. You said it may take hours, how many hours do I need to wait?

  222. I have a quesion. Is Host Gator just for Americans? I’m from Ireland so do I have to go with Irish host or it dosn’t matter? BTW, I want to setup WordPress blog with “com” after domain name and be avalaible to see for everyone in the world.

  223. Make $50 a day with my proven system, i will give access and coaching only to 10 lucky people. to get started, just search on Google *”chriseo online money machine”*

  224. Hey man Amazing video has helped me ALOT! only problem is your voice goes a bit loud so had to keep adjusting my headset but other than that i love it you’ve made a subscriber of me.

  225. Wonderful tutorial. For people like me, that don’t have a clue, or not have enough money. This is really helpful. Thank you.

  226. Thank you for this detailed explanation I hope am able to apply it. there were many things to consider seemed to be similar to a website building.

  227. I have multiple websites and its possible that my first problem is that I not focus only for one, and I get very little traffic for every blog.

  228. James when I go to add ‘suoer cashe’ plug in…I get a response which says ‘installation failed, downloads failed, no working transports found’ any advise? …I was sooo excited to be doing this and have hit this wall…

  229. QUESTION: Is MailChimp no longer FREE to connect with the SumoMe Plugins?? Every time i try to Connect it tells me that “MailChimp is a SumoMe Pro feature”???

  230. Great Tutorial ! well explained and easy to follow

    One concern, i am unable to connect list builder to mail chimp as it says its a pro feature. Are there any other free alternatives to list builder , Thanks !

  231. It is hard to imagine,How do you do that!
    Awedsome, awesome. Thank you James your selfless contribution.

  232. If I want to run to blogs what plan do I then need to buy from HostGator? Is it difficult running two blogs with the plan? Thank you very much in advance

  233. So,
    If i only want to practice on WordPress,this guide will not do me good because i need to buy a host and a domain ?
    like for example,in the free version i have only minimum features.

  234. Great video! However I am not able to connect list builder to mailchimp as it is not a free feature but is requiring an upgrade. Any suggestions? I just drafted my first newsletter and I am anxious to send it out since my subscriber list is growing quickly, THANKS TO YOU!! I appreciate all of your help.

  235. Hi James, Great Video! sounds like there are similar problems below that im experiencing sumome issues with the free options you recommend, and connecting with mail chimp as well. Any Suggestions?

  236. Hello James, I cannot seem to find Google Analytics by Yoast through the plugins search.
    Please let me know if they updated it to a new name so I can carry on with your guide.

  237. i have a problem with connecting mailchimp with listbuilder. Also when I try to get into listbuilder I see the dashboard and then the page is covered by program payment plan page that is blocking me from competing the rest of the set-up with mailchimp and list builder any ideas please?

  238. James! Thank you so much for making this video! Hopefully when I make my blog one day, I can give you a huge shout out! Thank god for generous humans like you!

  239. So, I see that there are plenty of people asking about the summon issue that requires the pro plan. I see that you have responded to some of the comments with a solution, but I am new to this and I don’t exactly understand the solution you have posted for others stating to download your contacts form list builder and add them to mail chimp. Can you explain this in a little more detail for a noob like me?

  240. You are AWESOME!!!!! I love your enthusiasm. Thank you for this, you have just inspired me to get this done!

  241. Thank you very much for making this video, James!

    As I’ve just started blogging, both your blogging and teaching skills fit perfectly together to get me off to a good start 🙂

    By the way, I’m having some troubles with connecting my account to SEO. I can’t see the focus keyword and snippet editor like James can when editing posts and pages. Could anybody help me with this?

  242. Hey James, I noticed that linking List Builder to MailChimp is now a SumoMe Pro feature. Do you have any recommended free alternatives?

  243. Hi again James mailchimp will only allow me to connect if I upgrade to sumonme upgrade pro is there something I can do?

  244. I appreciate your help with this blog stuff, however, I have a question bothering me. Prior to finding your tutorial here, I had already purchased my domain name and the Premium upgraded from With that being said, do I need to just pick up where you left off as far as downloading I’m confused about this part due to there being a and a (face palm)

  245. Hi James love your video…super helpful! However I’m stuck on the Google Analytics by Yoast plugin you say to install at 31.25 into your video. I’m not seeing that plugin as an option. What should I use instead?

  246. Hey James, I had before and i followed your instruction but instead of getting the 404 page i get the wordpress website and it says my domain name doesnt exist, with the go premiem option. Is this is the same a 404 page and I have to wait or am i suppose to change something on my .com page ?

  247. hey james thanks for the video but i cant connect mailchimp to list bulider it says i need to upgrade is there another option?

  248. hello great video. I was just wondering do plugins slow down your blog if you add too many?

  249. Is there a way you could be more amazing??
    this video was all i was looking for thank you so much for that much dedication and work its very much appreciated
    about to start my blog right now !

  250. You have to pay for SumoMe in order to be able to connect MailChimp with SumoMe. What do I do now 🙁

  251. can i add any picture form the internet. or do i have to have a copy right to every picture i use

  252. super easy . super nice. super useful. thank you.————————– now, blogging is not for me . thanks for the info.
    may GOD bless you guyss

  253. Great video, thanks! When I enter the search google analytics by yoast, it does not return that choice. Any thoughts?

  254. Hi James. Great video! I am unable to connect my account to SEO. I can’t see the focus keyword and snippet editor like what you have on the video. Mine just has General and another option. Kindly assist.

  255. To everyone asking about mailchimp and sumo me pro, the issue that comes up with paying for it, James Stafford said this waaay below to someone asking: “You can certainly still use the free version of the SumoMe list builder.. all you would do is download your contacts from list builder add them to Mail chimp.. so easy.. one extra step.”

    Can anyone talk me through what he means by this? Step by step, like I am slow in the head?

  256. Thanks so far so good, but when I tried to connect mailchimp and share it says that it is not free for those services…ooops

  257. Hi James, it seems the only way to add Mailchimp is to upgrade to the SumoMe Pro version. Your example does not show the need to upgrade to the Pro version of SumoMe. Am I doing something incorrectly?

  258. Great Vid! You have to pay for the Sumo Me service now. I wonder if there is another free email list provider?

  259. Just getting started on creating a blog and your information is absolutely fabulous! Thank you for genuinely keeping it simple, straight forward and effective!

  260. When I add yoast it doesnt give me the option to configure meta data do I have go premium for this now?

  261. I never add comments, But you have moved me to say “Way to school me young man!” You are so articulate yet fun. Everything you taught me was relevant and understandable. I appreciate your welcoming and so very professional site. Head and shoulders of a giant above the rest !!!!!!

  262. Nice video, but only one thing you forgot to mention that after the registration of domain you will need not to forget to change the name servers and wait while it will be propagated by HostGator with the waiting time 24 to 48 hours, not several hours until you will be able to access it.

  263. Hello James, I’m Darryl Johnson blogger for One of a kind by design. I use the Weebly drag and drop system but love the content you share for word press. My site share content just as yours but with content that comes from leader as yourself to help provide tips to our readers and members as well. We have a YouTube Vlogger/Blogger of the week and your video has been chosen as our next Vlogger/Blogger of the week. We will promote your video on one of our main pages that will direct viewers back to your channel. Thanks again for sharing your great tips to help others.

  264. Yow, James, are you still answering comments? You last comments was a month ago?
    So I am little stuck with the plugins that are no longer available, so was checking for suggestion. Any way still thankful because I learnt a lot.

  265. I’m just a few minutes in and I’m already pleased with the content, this material is priceless for someone like me who’s a complete novice. As yet I have no idea what a mailchimp is or any of the other techy words in the comments below. What I do know is I want and need a blog, I’m about to embark on something special.

  266. incredible! you have no idea how informative and well explained this was. i have content for days and was on the fence about creating a blog because it appeared to be a daunting task to organize things effectively in and not take forever. thanks for contributing this info

  267. You got some great pointers here for people trying to monetize their blog! It took me a while to figure out some of the key points you mentioned. I found that looking at my blog as a product/service instead of “just another blog” helped me sound compelling to my users.

  268. Hey everyone! I started my own blog and I’m so excited/nervious. I feel like it’s not good enough but I’m working on itttt. I really hope I can improve along the way and would really appreciate if you could check it out. I need your opinions!
    My new blog is

    Really sorry if bothered anyone <3

  269. Hi James I have been following this blog tutorial it’s so helpful but I tend to get lost along the way as my site luck certain links. As you explain I tend to go back to my site and try to fuse in as much information as I could but I think a one to one tutorial will be favourable for me. thanks so much.

  270. Hi, I’m having a problem. Hostgator changed their interface and i can’t find “webmail”. Anyone knows where it went?

  271. Sumome doesn’t let you connect to a mail service, to collect email addresses, as of now (11/11/16) without upgrading to their Sumome PRO version, which is expensive. So, not sure what to do now?

  272. Sumo me doesen’t let you connect to mail service without upgrading the new version of it, I know you already answerd to some of this type of question,but please,understand that you cannot connect it neither to smart bar or share what it’s your advice James?

  273. Hit a problem, I’m in the UK and the address asks for the state I live in with no UK address option. And there’s no monthly payment option, its gone. So I’ll have to host in the UK and follow on once I have WordPress installed.

  274. Hey SumoMe requires a Pro to get integrated with MailChimp – I cannot pay $59/month, can you help me please? I have a big audience on my youtube channel and I really need to get in touch with them. Thanks from Brazil!

  275. is there an alternative to yoast’s google analytics you’d recommend? It is not showing up in the search on wordpress for me

  276. Omg you are amazing!!! Literally watched the whole thing and I must applaud you. You did an excellent job. I’m now on the right track in starting mine. Whatever you do don’t delete this video, I’m gonna need it for a lonnnng time ahaha.

  277. James, I can’t get into SumoMe. After installing and activating I do not get the icon in the top right. Has it changed? I get a green button to click but again nothing. Spent hours trying to figure it out.

  278. Excellent video! Followed it to a tee. However, I already had a website and made the blog a sub-domain rather than a sub-directory. I added a menu option to access the blog, but am wondering will I get the same SEO impact with the sub-domain structure vs the sub-directory? Thanks for putting this video together, it was a great help.

  279. Wow! That was an awesome tutorial on setting up a blog! I’m so excited! I can’t wait to get started! I cannot thank you enough!!!

  280. I’m watching this video because I have an idea for a blog. I’ve actually written the first post and saved it. my question is, is the information in this video still accurate and relevant? If it is, I’ll get started. If not, can you tell me what’s changed? I really appreciate all the detail you provided.

  281. when I press on quick install, it does nothing. it gives me the ‘walk me through’ button and when that pops up, gives me the option to install wordpress…. then the walk me through button comes up again. so confused as to why it won’t go in this order for me.

  282. Great video! helps a lot for me because I am planning to start my own blog. thank you for sharing your knowledge for free. 🙂

  283. Hi, I’ve been following your how to step by step and I’m stuck at 38:32. Here’s the reason why…Does Sumome List Builder 3 still allow you to integrate mail in advance…

  284. Hey, nice informative stuff there mate. But, is there any plugin available alternative to SumoMe. Because it doesn’t let you establish a connection to any of the Mail Services unless you go Pro.

  285. I been ready since I clicked the video. I’m starting to think are you ready?? we 12:28 in before we start anything lol

  286. How can i integate MailChimp with the SmartBar? SumoMe is charging for every thing. How to do it for free?

  287. Why does my blog says “Don’t miss our next event” instead of the name of my blog on google? how can I change that?

  288. Hi, James……very helpful video.
    Kindly provide some tips on, what is ideal to write in your first blogpost?? I am bit confused to start…..

  289. Hey James. I am using your recommended Sydney template. Will this template work the same?

  290. This is a good video a very complete mate. I have been blogging for a year now but with no success at all. To make traffic from social media you need to be someone, if not the only traffic you can make is by promotion on groups where most people just want to exchange comments or things like that (not giving a fuck about your content). The only way to make like 100k views a month or more is ranking on Google and there is no other way. To make that you need to be really good and know advanced SEO. I know how to write for seo but since my blog isn’t an authority I can’t rank better than page 2-5, getting backlinks is super hard if you don’t know what to do like me and even if I get some decent amount of shares on social media page 1 is like something out of my league.

    Even if I try small keywords with almost no competition my blog isn’t good enough for Google.

  291. Can I add Adsense to my blog later then, if I do all these things in the video to make a professional blog?

  292. You’re REALLY OBSESSED with the whole email thing!
    I absolutely HATE being flooded with unwanted emails from blogs.
    You focus ALOT on emails. What good is an email list if someone unsubscribes from
    your blog because of the overwhelming amount of emails? A whole hr is dedicated to emails dude!?

  293. Guys if you really want to make money online .Then i recommended you this site; “Mojo Make Money System” (Just Search Google)

  294. I make over 900 dollars/week with my online business. If you want to learn how I do it watch this video here: JoxMoney. com

    Anyone can do it and it is beginner friendly.

  295. can we make payments through paypal or other option coz my bank does not support internantional transactions… 🙁
    btw this video is so awesome bro . i mean literally you have spent a lot of time just toi make one video and even the editing is at its best . such an helpful video is , very deep ,. thanks for making this video!!! you are awesome keep it up

  296. you should update your instructions. I follow  your instructions and when I click on quickinstall I don’t get the bar on the left that you’re showing, I don’t get to see wordpress. I see websites, server info, domains, website addons, and a lot of other stuff but no wordpress.

  297. is site lock and code guard is important for new wordpress ..?, i just want to open worpress at cheapest . so do i need to buy them..?or cani buy them later on…?

  298. Great great video.

    My ONLY con is that in order to utilize most of the sumo tools, it cost about $350 for a basic 1 year subscription in order to link it up with Aweber or any other email list management service. Other than the $$$, amazing walk through. I feel I’m much more educated on wordpress and this regardless of the sumo tools, it’s still a very valuable how-to. Highly worth the watch. Thanks!

  299. I’m using another theme (followed another tutorial before i stumbled on your tutorial) I prefer your plugins. Can I still use with another theme (i’m using Themifiy Ultra)

  300. this is useful.. very useful but some of the plugins appear differently here in the UK and the Sumo ones are not free.. connecting to mailchimp requires you to upgrade to the pro package..

  301. but is this or can i use this blogging method for personal blogging and can i add ads? if i do add ads do i get all the money ? please reply soon!

  302. Hi James mailchimp is a summome pro feature, how do we get around this problem as this is a key part of your tutorial, I feel like I have just wasted my time now although I love your content, this wont work unless we go pro, and you definitely state we can link these using the free plugins…..PLEASE HELP JAMES

  303. Thank you very much. I’m in the process of designing my creative writing blog. This is an excellent video.

  304. Hey James! Thank you for the great information. I have a question. The permalink section is not appareing in my under settings in my WordPress. I know you said this setting is vital. Where do I go from here?

  305. Hey man, this was a very helpful video I must say. I have already started my blog, but I’m kind of stuck with a few things tbh. One of the main problems I’m facing is that I’m unable to connect list builder on SumoMe to Mailchimp(which I’ve already setup). Whenever I go to add a popup and try to connect list builder to an email service like mailchimp it says that I need to upgrade to pro. If that’s the case then I’m screwed because I’m on a real tight budget. I would be glad if you could help me out with this:
    How can I connect mailchimp to listbuilder without upgrading to pro?
    I would be glad to receive a response from you. Its almost a week now and I’m not yet ready to post any articles because I’m stuck with not being able to connect list builder with mailchimp. Please help!

  306. quick question James, I’m 42mins into your video and it seems that I can’t connect Sumo Me to MailChimp without upgrading to Sumo Me pro and incurring a pricey monthly fee. Is there a way around this?

  307. there is no google analytics by yoast…? what to do now…? does this plugin require a specified countries or something like that///?

  308. Hey James, thanks for the video. I am stuck like Carine. Mailchimp charges now so do you have another plugin that works with MailChimp? SumoMe makes you upgrade and pay monthly.

  309. how do i get my site going…… im done with everything but still get a hostgator page when i type in my domain

  310. I am 16 and I wanted to start a blog this video helped me a lot. I would recommend this video to all my freinds. Thank you.

  311. The energy man..turn it down 10..its like getting excited about paint drying..lots of great info but kind of a turn off..BOOM!!!!!

  312. Are you having a difficult time keeping up with all the charges that come in each month? Do you actually want and need a serious plan for generating 159 usd per day online? You might need to look “mizi shocking online”. Don`t know what it is? Search “mizi shocking online” on google.

    btw the video starts around 10:00

  314. Hey James, I am looking at your blog at websitemadeeasy. How do you get those awesome cover photo pictures for your blog posts?

  315. I`ve got something you need to know guys. Through the use of “zimo unique plan” (Google it), I was able to start up a new business. My friend earned a lot of money because of the plan and made a decision to share it to me. In fact, I find it very beneficial. Just in case you still have no idea relating to this, you have to be informed at the moment…

  316. I like it…Guys if you really want to make money online .Then i recommended you this site; “Mojo Make Money System” (Just Search Google)

  317. Hey dude. I did exactly the way you explained but i still get 404 error when i click on the admin link to log on. Please help me!!

  318. Amazing video! This was the video I watched to build my blog site. Looking for more videos from you to start making “tons” of money on my blog like you said! Thanks man!

  319. Is there an alternative to the list builder plugin? Does it matter if I use a different one?

  320. i`ve seen it one hour, good so far. I`ll watch more tomorrow. thx for taking the time to do that great job. I`ve got an idea to start a blog inviting people to come to Colombia, i want people around the world to see the good face of my country, not what the media sells. People do you think it will work ?

  321. Great video. Having problems getting into my new wordpress site. Initially the site details (password etc) ‘disappeared’ somewhere. Once the site was up I had no password to log in. Then i requested a password reset but nothing came up. Checked the next morning same problem so requested another password reset. Then came the lightbulb moment as I checked my spam folder and there was the old password reset (now expired). Now awaiting the new password reset. (PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE).

  322. when installing yoast SEO I could not find the titles and metas option. You have to go to features then enable the advanced settings. After saving changes it will appear

  323. I love this video & definitely has helped me drastically in creating a web page. We are now in 2017 and I would love an updated video if you can James! The many tools that would be helpful to our WordPress have been updated since this video and because of this I am not able to easily access any of the very helpful Sumo tools bc they all suggest being “PRO” to do anything really beneficial for my site, and is quite expensive for my current little beginners pockets. For now, I am doing my best to use the sumo tools free or find free alternatives to that get the same job done. Until then, Thank you so much for this very helpful video. Your amazing at what you do!!!

  324. It`s not very easy to generate money on the net. Do not worry though as “zimo unique plan”(Google it) would make earning online easy for you. Simply read it on their website as a jump start. In this website, you will learn techniques and get training resources that can help your online businesses be a success..

  325. Apparently, if you don’t purchase the upgraded SumoMe plugin, all the additional add-ons are very limited and some are not available.

  326. when connecting to the list builder it is saying you need be a pro member for it….can u please help

  327. You cant connect Mail Chimp to sumo anymore unless you pay for a pro version. Are there any other services that are free?
