Description

Experience Level: Expert
I am a successful psychotherapist, trainer and coach in my local area • Plymouth in Devon, UK. I want to build an online presence so that people know me and have a relationship with me beyond the physical boundaries of my local area. My 2-year goal is to earn at least £1000 per month online. I want to become a well-known person so that I can share learning, knowledge and wisdom. When this is accomplished, I would like to use this platform to:
• Make an income through affiliate links
• Sell downloads and e-courses
• Market online or telephone sessions of coaching or counselling
• Market workshops and courses.
Stages of work are shown below • dates are at latest • I am happy if things happen sooner.
Targeted steps:
1. Set up blog and get support organised by end December 2010
2. Make regular posts and build a following by end March 2011
3. Following built to 100 visits per week, add Amazon book links, market events by end June 2011
4. 200 visits per week, add other affiliate links, market downloads by end December 2011
5. Market face-to-face sessions for coaching and counselling via online booking system, during 2012

So my blog needs to:
• Look attractive (see below)
• Have a photo of me
• Capture emails
• Have add-ons for social media and affiliate links
• Be capable of expansion to link with download agencies, PayPal etc
• Be flexible so that it can be developed as needed
• Be a Wordpress blog
• Be able to be used with Live Writer
• Be simple to operate, maintain and upload to
• Be able to be expanded and developed with plug-ins etc.
I’m not very good at seeing how a template will turn out when it’s been personalised. I want something that is simple and clean, with good colour. I don’t want anything with strong themes; I’ve seen some with horror (dripping blood etc) and motor cars or food! Also not white on black. I want something calm, clean and businesslike, with my photo on it.
It may be that you tell me what I need to look for in a template and then suggest a range to look at. To give you an idea, I quite liked these:
http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/simplicity
http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/emerald-stretch (in blue)
I need IT support to set up the blog so that I can post to it with ease. I also want to be able to request development of the blog • for example, addition of affiliate links or download links • as needed.
I am happy to expand on any of this if it is not clear
