If you're here, I assume that you love talking about health, listening to podcasts and scouring the web for the latest info.
You have so many ideas about how you can contribute and have thought about the idea of starting your own health blog or even a podcast. Maybe you need a website for your health coaching business.
Today is your best day to start a health blog.
Spend the next 15 minutes with me and let's you up and running.
The three steps to blogging:
Domain Name and Hosting
Design and Graphics
1) Domain name and hosting
This part is important!
What do you want your domain name to be?
For example, mine is notjustpaleo.com. Try to use simple words and not use strange spellings for normal words. This will only confuse your future potential website visitors and searchers. They won't find your site.
After navigating to Bluehost, enter your ideal website name and click next.
Next you will pick your plan level which you should select the Starter Plan which is paid in one lump sum. It's much cheaper in the long term to do it this way.
After securing your domain, you'll need to add hosting the domain. Hosting is how your website actually gets broadcasted to the world. Bluehost has great rates and gives your domain name for free if you decide to host with them.
I highly recommend using WHO IS privacy which is an option you check on the second page. This keeps your personal address and other information private.
2) Installing Wordpress
Once you've completed your registration process through Bluehost, you'll need to install Wordpress.
Wordpress is a free online software that allows you to create your blog. It's simple but powerful for all your needs. Not Just Paleo runs on Wordpress. It's the only software worth using in my opinion.
Login to Bluehost and look for this section pictured below. Click on the Wordpress "W".
On the next page click the "Install" button in the "Do it yourself (Free)" section.
Click the "Check Domain" button:
Check the terms and conditions box and click "Install Now" button!
You will get an "Installation Complete" message where you will see your Login URL, Username and Password you'll need to login with. You can change them later, but take a picture or screenshot of this page.
Go to your web browser and type in your Login URL. You'll see the Wordpress Logo and login page. Enter your login information from the last page.
You're in! Woohoo!
3) Making It Look Good
You now have your own blog! Congrats! You may be on the verge of changing the entire planet, I'd say you definitely are.
Now, you're only a few minutes away from publishing your first blog post, recipe or other spectacular content that you've had locked inside of your brain for the last how ever many years.
However, the basic Wordpress themes are quite boring and not pretty at all. It really makes a difference in if people delve deeper into your website or not. If it looks boring and basic from first glance, they may not stick around. Wordpress offers many alternative themes for free that you can view here. If you want to get a premium theme like Not Just Paleo runs on, you have a few options:
The Thesis Theme -- This theme has been highly successful for many of my fellow blogging friends. It's highly attractive and simple to use.
The Genesis Framework -- This is the current framework that Not Just Paleo runs on. Think of it as the higher end vehicle to deliver your content as opposed to using Wordpress by itself.. It's made my life and blogging experience much more professional while minimizing difficulty.
Studiopress Themes -- This is the company I currently use for themes. These themes are built for the genesis framework. They are beautiful, functional, responsive and great for mobile users. The future of the internet depends on how well your site runs on mobile. These are your best bet.
3b) Get 1-on-1 Business Coaching
When first starting out, it's a daunting task to think and research about the various social media tools, recording software, editing programs and more. So I've conveniently offer 1-on-1 business coaching as part of my mentorship offering.
Welcome to the page that can change your financial life and benefit the health of your friends, followers and online community.
A Gym, Crossfit or Fitness Club Owner with a Website or Social Media account
Someone with a Personal Blog or Website Ownership
Someone with an interest in helping people learn or achieve more on Health, Supplements and Nutrition
Someone with a popular Social Media following or the passion to share health products in return for cash?
Someone who wants to help people navigate the confusing supplement industry and lead them to the highest quality supplements and get a valuable return
Even if you don't fit into the categories of the bullet points listed, I recommend joining Onnit's Affiliate Program.
I've used their products myself and have had great results from using the supplements and fitness equipment. (When I say great results, I mean I never get sick and I'm in the best shape of my life)
What Onnit Supplement and Fitness Company is About
Their slogan is Total Human Optimization. This is achieved through a clean diet, proper supplementation and a consistent exercise routine using Onnit's specially designed kettlebells and other equipment with a large focus on functional movements.
They take no chances with fillers or low quality ingredients, instead supplying the customer with the highest quality (and most bioavailable) form of vitamins and supplements.
However, without a large overhead, they are able to provide very competitive pricing with the other high-end supplement companies
They help and sponsor Olympic Gold medalists and Pro Athletes such as Bode Miller and PGA Pro Matt Every
Here are some of benefits of joining the Onnit Affiliate Program:
18% Commission on supplements
This is by far one of the highest (if not the highest) commission pay-out in the supplement industry. I previously used Amazon's affiliate program for promoting supplements and made pennies on the dollar for taking the time to help people find these supplements.
Incredibly beautiful, engaging and non-invasive banners and sidebar ads
Check out the sidebar on the page you're on right now. Onnit's Graphic Design and Marketing teams are incredible at making classy but engaging ads. I like clicking on my own ads just because they look so nice!
The average order is $85
The revenue you make simply by leaving an ad on your social media, websites, supplement recommendation pages or wherever else you decide to post your link or ads will accumulate quickly.
Even just 1 sale can cover the costs of your current web hosting, podcast and other fees associated with your website or blog.
If you don't have a website or blog, that's fine too. You can share your personal links with your friends, family and others across the web.
Simply set it up and promote
After putting up the affiliate links, banners or picture ads, your responsibility is simply to promote it.
If you want to talk about your links on your podcast, write your opinion on the vitamins and fitness products and get attention to it that way, you can. However, simply having the links on your website with traffic will be more than enough to get people to click and purchase items.
You will be surprised how fast the check (or PayPal) gets sent to you after the sales are approved by the Affiliate Manager. Who needs more explanation than that?
