All About Resources & Q/A*

This meeting we (me) and others (?) - will share some resources that may help us Soloprenuers get things done.. as it regards to WordPress. 

• Categories

• Design

• Development

• Marketing

• Online/ongoing education/training


If you are up for sharing let me know. If you are afraid of public speaking (96% of the world is), send me the resource you want to share and I'll take care of it. 

Time permitting, I am sure there will be some questions that are "off topic"  I'll do my best to answer / facilitate that as well  (I love the off topic conversations!)  

Hope to see you next week!

      I am trying to renew a few domains right now myself.. one just expired last night... not worried. there are 12 days to renew before the 80$ ... that said.... apparently GD has cancelled renewal coupon codes and replaced it with a new "CLUB" at 7.50/month to have access to discounted prices. ... etc.. May have to look for new registrar myself.

      Used to use Dreamhost for hosting but since moved most of my hosting to HostGator. Still use Dreamhost for domain regs. $11.95 and includes private regs.

    Lawrence, for Hosting I recommend to go to and watch Tyler's free video tutorials. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1WYXrGOAA0. Tyler Moore, DIY wordpress.
    He has an affiliate code that he mentions in the video that will give you a discount for Hostgator.com. The Baby package gives you the ability to have more than one URL. Host more websites of your own or your friend's. Programmers usually do this too when they build sites for ppl and charge a hefty monthly fee for hosting.

    Want to know how to setup clients properly on social media sites, especially when they are already signed-up with personal accounts.

      Hey Cesar...each SM platform has their own nuances. However, most do have a "business" account aka FB Biz Page, LinkedIn Company Page, etc. Some of the SM platforms will require (or highly encourage) the user setting up the new biz account to have a personal account on the platform too. Hope that helps.

    I had a few resources I wanted to share that I learned of at the OCWP meetup last night:

    1. To place a google search bar: www.google.com/cse (for developers since you have to drop the code in the template file). For non developers, this plugin will do the trick: http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-custom-search/
    Why: The wordpress search is terrible and can bog down your site performance. Google is the master of search, use them. 2. Finding out what your favorite websites are made with:
    builtwith.com (This blew my mind).

    3. Find out what theme a wordpress site is using. www.whatwpthemeisthat.com (This also blew my mind)

    I am a beginner with WordPress. I would love to know how to design my page to make it user friendly. How to add banners, paypal and how to export some of my old website to my new one.

    Possible topic suggested: Sharing Resources. - Perhaps a couple different categories, as well as some one to co-present. If you dont like public speaking, then you could send them to me and I'll present it! Possible Categories:
    Design.
    Development
    Marketing,
    Online Education.

    • Jordan E.

      Can we have a category of financial literacy?

      June 11, 2014

    • Adam S.

      Jordan - can you expand on that idea?

      June 12, 2014

  • Jordan E.

    Any idea as to what this event will be about?

    June 12, 2014

  • Suzy E.

    Suggestion for meeting topic: How about sharing resources? Websites or businesses that will add or help us. Some resources were mentioned at the last meeting I attended.

    May 12, 2014

  • Alison C.

    Some thoughts for mtg topics: integrating shortcode plug-ins or jQuery apis...
