My First Article Submission

Thursday, July 24, 2008

I've just submitted my first article to EzineArticles.com, entitled, "The Mindset Of An Internet Marketer".

Foremost, it is my hope to generate traffic to my website, www.fromadrianlee.com. Secondly, it is to find out if what I have written is good enough to get published. And hopefully, is picked up by readers.

Writing the article didn't take long, I had a reference to give me an idea of what I wanted to write about. I can honestly say I did not rip it off anybody. I wrote a draft, and changed a couple of lines and that was it.

Creating an account was easy. Although, just before I went to Ezine, I watched a video on article submission which I got from Ewen Chia. The tutorial was spot on, I submitted without any problems. Nomally, I tend to fool around finding out how things work. Tutorial videos work, you just got to sit through it.

My First Web Hosting

Friday, July 11, 2008

The more you get into blogging or internet marketing, you will soon realise that getting your own website is the way to go. There are plenty of options available, and they are relatively low priced. Certainly, the start-up cost of your own domain name and hosting is a lot less than any off-line business venture.

I chose to go with EcommerceMastery.com (www.ecommercemastery.com), see the link at the right sidebar.
  1. They are a malaysian company, so the set-up cost works in my favour.
  2. Their rates are really nice, check it yourself.
  3. Their response time is 1 working day, and they do get back within that time. But sometimes it seems that my problems only happen on friday nights or over the weekend. Than I have to wait till monday before I can do anything.
  4. Their Cpanel has Fantastico. That really helps especially if you are a newbie. Basically, you just click on what you want and installation is pretty automated.
  5. The people at this company seems friendly and helpful. There's also an office number you can call during office hours.
Register your domain name, select your web hosting package, and you are all set to start your own internet marketing venture.

I've set up a wordpress blog on my site at www.fromadrianlee.com. It's relatively easy, there are tons of themes, widgets and plugins you can use. The settings are quite straight forward, but do read the tutorials or an e-book on wordpress. It helps a lot. Like everything else, simple is relative. There is a learning curve, but it's not that bad. Stick with it and you're do fine. This is the fastest way to get your own website up and running, if you are a beginner.
