Is being on a free blogging platform holding your business back?
If so, moving your business to a self hosted WordPress site needs to be your first step.
The following are just a couple of reasons why…
- First, the terms and conditions clearly state (all free blogging platforms) that you cannot market or sell anything from a free blogging platform (Blogspot, Blogger, WordPress.com etc). And this is not just a urban myth.
You might say that you’ve been doing this for forever, or you know many people who do, but that doesn’t save you from waking up one morning, logging onto your site, and it is gone. Forever. No warning. No explanation. No nothing. Essentially, your business will be gone..
- Secondly, no matter if you’ve purchased your own domain name and SEO’d your site like crazy, you will never ever match the SEO value, or the organic ranking in the search engines that you get from having a self hosted WordPress site.
- Third, if you are on a free site to save money, then I would challenge you to do some research on what it takes to have a self hosted site that you own. It is not expensive, especially when you balance costs and benefits. I use (and highly encourage others as well) Bluehost for hosting everything related to my businesses. If you purchase one year of hosting at a time, it will cost you $7.95 + tax USD per month. That’s about $95 per year, and they will give you your first domain name. Purchase 2 years at at time and the price goes down to $65 per year.
This has to be the cheapest form of advertising available to any business anywhere. (By the way, you can host 5 full websites, WordPress or traditional, with this hosting package, without any additional charges. So if you have several free blogging platform sites, you can bring them all over).
- Fourth, it’s really easy to bring your content to your new self hosted WordPress site from a free blogging platform. Click this button and it’s done. Simple and easy. What are you waiting for?
