Once we get started, your website/blog should be up and running within just a few days.

Additional costs:

Domain name and hosting (less than $100 per year)
I recommend hosting your blog with either GoDaddy or Bluehost, and can help set this up for you if you’d like.

Thesis WordPress Theme – $87 (a one time charge)
Every blog needs a theme, which controls the visual layout. The theme I recommend is the Thesis Theme for WordPress. In addition to the layout, it offers built in SEO features and is highly customizable. Thesis offers much more than most blog themes and is considered to be the best theme on the market. It is considered an industry standard and used by many well-known bloggers.

If you aren’t on Facebook, or if you have a lackluster Facebook Fan Page I can help you stand out from the crowd with a custom Facebook Fan Page. With your input, we’ll design an eye appealing, information-packed fan page that will help with the overall marketing strategy for your business.
