Day 3: It Was A ‘Banner’ Day Today
Day 3 turned out to be a much more productive day than day 2 was. And if you haven’t guessed it by now, yes there was some graphics involved. ‘Banner’ Day. Graphics. Get it!!
Anyways, before continuing on, I need to fill you in on something I do after I register a domain name. That I have yet to mentioned here. Immediately after registering the domain name, I then sign up for a Gmail account, Google+ account, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts.
The reason for this is that I utilize the domain name I just registered to sign up with those social media outlets so that I can reserve those names. And for the first time, I am about to reveal my new affiliate marketing website. Drum roll please…
Yup, there it is in all it’s glory!! So now, immediately after registering that domain name, I capture the following social media accounts:
So now that I am the official owner of these social media accounts, I had to pretty them up a bit! So the majority of the day was spend purchasing stock photos and designing graphics for logos, banners & headers. Now if you click on any of the links above, you can now view the graphics and banners I created for those accounts. Although the content is still a bit thin.
The last thing I accomplished for the day was to install my favorite Wordpress plugins. Although the default Wordpress install at WA does come with their favorite plugins, I find them a bit outdated and consequently deleted and installed my more current plugins. In case you are curious, my favorite plugin list currently contains:
Google Analytics by Yoast
WordPress SEO by Yoast
Video SEO for WordPress SEO by Yoast
Clicky by Yoast
Easy Social Share
NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster
If you are unfamiliar with some of these plugins, go ahead and do a Google search for them. However, I do plan on creating some basic setup videos for each of this plugins here on WA. Please leave a comment below on which plugin you would like me to create a video for first.
Before I say goodbye to Day 3 here, I just want to remind you that I am creating a roadmap documenting the steps I am taking in creating my first $1000 month. If you would like to see my roadmap and follow along, just click the following link:
See you in Day 4!
