STOP!!!: Do NOT Waste $$$ For A WordPress Blog “Developer”

STOP!!!: Do NOT Waste $$$ For A WordPress Blog “Developer”

imageI just got a solicitation call, which has sparked this post. Truly I was trying NOT to laugh during the pitch, but I failed miserably, LMAO

Seems like the latest bunch on of leaches crawling through the pockets of unknowing online retailers, have been the so called “WordPress  Site Developers.” These charlatans are selling canned WordPress blog packages for as much at $1800.00!!!

OMG, WTF? Well I guess there is a sucker born every minute, but WE are NOT suckers! We read the ColderICE.com blog :-) And as such, we simply are NOT fair game for the snake oil sales of the so-called WordPress “experts”

Generally speaking, the installation of a Blog using WordPress is not an arduous task by any stretch of the imagination. It is designed to be EASY, to allow anyone to set up a blog regardless of technical expertise. That is why WordPress was created and made open source, to keep the leaches out of your back pocket.

But if the task seems too much for you, or you are just not that comfortable with technology, you can actually get it done for you for as little as $35.00. Or you can go buck wild and get a premium customized install for just $135. Doing research for this article, I found dozens of reasonably priced installs to counter the scumbag prices. Come on,  $500 – $1800 for what was meant to be free and easy?!? OMG, if I just had no conscious and could sleep at night, I too could jump into that business and strike it rich I guess?!?image

What’s that? That’s the money you could be saving without that WordPress Installer sucking money out of your business!!!

Do not get me wrong, I am NOT saying that all paid professional  that create blogs for businesses using WordPress are fakers, BUT make sure you get what you pay for. Hundreds of dollars for 10 minutes worth of work and a paint on-template? Pleeeze.

On Monday’s Social Networking training, with the guys at Brainstoming Bonanzle, I mentioned how EASY it is to do a WordPress install, and customization. Plus I also said that with WordPress version 2.7 things such as SEO, Plug-Ins and administration just went from 18 year old, do it yourself now down to 10 year old understanding.

After that call, I got some email about “how to do it” and I was going to make a demo video on it. Then I thought better of it. So instead of ME doing the video, I figured I would just show you how MANY videos there really are out there on YouTube (over 2,400) showing you HOW TO DO IT YOURSELF in less than 10 minutes via C-Panel (look for that feature when choosing your hosting platform…I use BlueHost  for ColderICE.com) So here are just a few…

Thank you for saying this. I wanted to write a post about this forever and didn’t want to be thought of as a jerk.

WordPress is easy to set up and customize. Please don’t waste your money paying someone to do it!

Yeah, I am sick of my readers being jerked around for hundreds and even thousands of dollar under the sway of the sooth-sayers. They add NO value to the install and take all your money.

My suggestion is to do the install in-house and THEN bring in the consultant IF you still need more customization. The product is professional right out of the box and it is FREE.

These guys suck ass, LMAO.

Hi, Green Spot here.

John, nice to see someone shake out the dust and put it straight. I’ve seen same thing lately, big price tags for wordpress blogs with a few little features.

Sorcerers at work, or leeches, take your pick.
Seems to me a wordpress blog, with bonanzle, ebay and other rss feeds in, and out, is actually child’s play in comparison to running real servers. Thanks for the statement about “10 minutes” as that is all it takes really. There are so many options available from a few $$ to a few Hundred $$. I can’t imagine $800 or so for any wp blog setup.

Have you seen the prices for ELGG and Joomla developers lately? that software is more complex and might even justify some costs, but WP, no way.
cheers.
Vince, Green Spot Antiques.
