I receive a few emails a week from people asking me if I can help them set up their new WordPress blog for them as they have no idea how to go about doing it. Sadly I am normally very busy and have to politely turn them down.
This evening I was sitting at my desk when I had the following thought:
“Would people be prepared to pay a small fee to have their WordPress blog set up for them?”
I’m not talking about a huge fee, maybe something like $5.00.
This would include the following:
– Initial set up of the latest WordPress version.
– Installation of up to 10 plugins of your choice (I’ll provide a list of ones I’ll install).
– Support for the first week.
Then I had another thought:
“What if I offer this service and then offer another option where I do it for free if they sign up for hosting from a company I recommend?”
What do you guys thinks about this?
