    Prices to Charge for Blogging?

    Hi Marie, One service I think would be pretty cool as a package would be this. To extend your webinar package by offering to transcribe or create shownotes out of the content that is created. I know some marketers like James Schramko have very in depth pdfs created from their webinars, with formatting and images + transcribed text.
  2. Hey there. Is this checklist going to be used as a lead magnet, or web content? I was thinking you could create a blog post based on your experiences and then do what is known as a content upgrade, and offer the checklist as a way of building your list. Tawnya highly recommends new VAs start building their list as soon as possible. But you will have to have some way to draw traffic to your website to build your base. What are you currently using to get traffic?

    New VA member introduction

    Welcome Sophia! It's great to meet you. It's so cool you are a content creator. Do you find content marketing helps you land more clients on the medias you write for? Or do you do solo emails and things like that?
  4. Welcome to the forums. Do let us know if you have any questions.

    What's your favorite website creator/builder?

    Thanks for this list, Veronica! I had never heard of ipage or webs. I don't think we need a prize for my favourite. But sometimes when I like something, I stick to it and become blindsided to other possibilities!

    I'm trying out Divi

    Hey Danielle/Tawnya, I think I've worked out most of Divi LOL. I kind of like it. I feared I would haha. One service I would like to add is a white label service for freelancers. I would probably urge them to use their own Divi license key but create website for them to onsell to their own clients. I'll post more in the insider area. Thanks for your advice on Divi Danielle. One thing I like about what you said is you are getting to a point where you don't have to worry about coding because the user experience covers that. A huge innovative selling point for clients!

    making international payments

    Hi @sherio. I agree with Tawnya and Danielle that these are part of business, but on the other hand, I agree PayPal has gone too far with the fees. If you are sending money to somebody - for example an outsourcer - pay as a service not as a "friend". That way you are a) not the one stuck with the fee for sending and b) protected by PayPal. If you are receiving money, you could try Stripe but this does mean the payer has to use a credit card. PS I was also feeling annoyed with PayPal so asked around at other options such as Transferwise, GoCardless and Stripe.

    Thinking before jumping

    Love the training tracks!
  10. I used to use Photoshop and Illustrator. But I realised I was only using them for tasks that could be done on Canva. Although logo manipulation on vectors is an Illustrator job. Honestly in Australia, the prices for Adobe's products got too expensive for somebody who was hardly using them well. Shame because I was good at them at one stage lol. Just didn't need them. @Veronica have you heard of this program online? https://vectr.com/ I might see if i can use it to do minor changes to vectors such as changing colours lol. Or I just hire you

    Website Design Forum Moderator - Veronica

    Hey Veronica! So glad to have you aboard. We can all learn so much from you. I love Canva but I'm probably the best at it lol so excited to see what tricks you have up your sleeve! I also used Joomla prior to WP and even went back to Joomla at one stage when WordPress was new. My, how technology changes and the landscape shifts under us. Now I couldn't live without WordPress! Would love to talk about WordPress with you sometime. Enjoy!

    NHW: Restructuring subdomain url

    Hi Deepa. Are you using a WordPress Site? They generally need renaming at the database level. As for the general structure of the file system, you should be able to get it working in your cpanel. Could you contact your host and get them to do this for you? It might be best if you are unfamiliar with file systems and perhaps databases.

    VA Website

    Thanks Tawnya. Yes always worth investing into a paid theme when you can for the reasons you stated. I'm actually practising my Divi skills at present.

    VA Website

    Hi, if you are after free I'm going to suggest you try the Astra theme. It is very popular and highly regarded. Yes it does have a paid version but the free is quite good to get started. Just search for "astra" when you install a new theme. https://wordpress.org/themes/astra/
  15. Wow Marie! Talk about taking action I like how fast you've moved on this. One thing I love that Tawnya says about websites is that they are always a work in progress. SO that said, let's hit that launch button!
