Blogging For A Business Can Be Fun

By now I think that most of us are aware of how a popular blog posts have become, and blogging for a business can offer a fun way to promote your business . However how easy is setting up a blog for your business and can anyone do it?

The simple answer is yes. There are many blogging platforms out there with some even offering free templates for you to create a blog. An example of one of the most popular blogging platforms that offer free templates is WordPress. The only other expense is to purchase a domain name.

What is a domain name?

A domain name is a unique address that can be used on the internet. It’s what you see directly after the “www” in the address bar. The best way to select a domain name is to simply type in your preferred name (even if it’s your own name) and the options for that name will be displayed. There are many different websites that offer domain names and hosting and it will be a matter of personal choice which one you choose.

Purchasing domain names is quite inexpensive and starts off at approximately £6 a year with the option of purchasing from 1 year right up to 10 years. It is better to choose an “auto renewal” option if available as this will ensure that you will be notified when your current domain name expires. This can prove invaluable as failure to renew you domain name could result in you losing it. You will also need to choose a web hosting package that allows using software like Word press.
