First Steps Towards Creating a Brand and Progress Update

Last Update: March 04, 2019

Hello again WA community,

I decided its time for me to write another blog post detailing my progress. Hopefully, y'all will find this interesting and perhaps learn a few things at the same time.

It took me a while to do it, but I have finally finished researching keywords for the domain name I wanted to turn into a brand using Wealthy Affiliate's Keyword Research Tool, a dictionary, and a thesaurus. I spent too much time trying many word combinations to get a domain name I could be happy with and finally surpassed my expectations on that front.

I probably should have used more of that time to finish further lessons in WA Affiliate Bootcamp but I was having fun doing the research and trying to utilize SEO keywords for a domain name. In the process, I learned a new acronym, Search Engine Optimization. I'm usually terrible with acronyms. The Site Domains tool made it easy to find available domain names and purchase them for my use.

I spent an inordinate amount of time playing with the Site Manager tool as well. After trying multiple themes I found an awesome one that I will probably use for most of my websites going forward. I will of course adjust the theme to differentiate between the sites, but the underlying framework will be the same. It has a couple built in plugins that do some fancy things. One plugin is called Elementor and the other is called Orbit Fox Companion.

The theme met most of my requirements for optimal user experience that included:

  • Fast and Lightweight
  • Compatibility with Gutenberg and other popular page builders
  • High Customization (in layout, coloring, menu setup, and more)
  • Accessibility for Mobile Devices
  • Purposed for multiple website types including WooCommerce

But wait, there's more! Just kidding, I'm not trying to sell anything here. I am excited about all the features of the theme though.

I think that pretty-much wraps up my progress at this time.

Until next time,

Jonathon

P. S. I think some people writing blog posts are forgetting that handy tool for checking grammar before publishing their latest blog.

I decided on a grid based theme to start with. Elementor is a plug-in that is included with some themes and can be found at the WordPress.org website.

Yes, but how do I access it through this platform? Or do I upload it, is that what you mean?

I sincerely apologize for not replying sooner. I had to crash for sleep before your question.

As I am unable to create a lesson until I have been a member for 3 months or more, I will just direct you towards the search box at the top of the screen next to the WA logo. Type in "Install Plug-in" and you should find a solution to your question. Some of the lessons and answers are out of date, but they will give you an idea of what to do with the newer menus and dashboard.

I spent a while taking screen captures, editing the images, and getting ready to create an updated lesson when I found out I need to wait 3 more months.

I hope this helps you.
