If you are reading this message, you’ve taken the first step having logged in to your new website here at the Real Estate Radio Network. Congratulations, and welcome aboard! Hi, I’m Gregory Wexler — as we move forward, I’m going to provide you insights to empower you with a solid web presence!
Your Virtual Handshake
We’ve got a lot in store for you! Whether you are technically savvy or not, rest assured that we’ll continued to work diligently to help you get the most out of your web presence. My good friend and associate, Ron Quintero asked a good question to a recent audience, “What does your virtual handshake look like?” While Ron didn’t coin the term, in this day and age, it’s an excellent question!
Radio has been around a long time and will be here for many years to come. With the advent of the Internet and Social Media, we’re going to help you connect these mediums together and maximize the feedback engine to help propel you forward. But before we begin, I’d like to introduce you to your WordPress website – an open source Content Management System (CMS).
We’ve taken the first step to personalize your website by adding your name, profile images, and radio program information. Go ahead and start sharing it’s location (URL) with your friends, family, and audience!
Your website has a front-end that’s visible to your audience and the public. We’ve created several pages for you as seen in the menu just above the picture: Welcome, Shows, Blog, About, and Contact. You’re free to add additional pages relevant to the services that you offer. Additionally, you can leverage your Blog (a written journal that your fans can subscribe to) to socially share your thoughts about past programs, upcoming programs, your industry, etc.
Additionally, your website has a back-end Dashboard which is visible to you (not your fans) when you login to your website. Thats the area in which you’ll be able to customize your website to make changes to text and images, add pages, audio, video & post blogs.
To get you started, follow through the WordPress Codex – documentation which is setup to help you get the most out of the WordPress environment. Here’s the link that will enable beginners to get started in creating their first post. Just follow the first 6 steps listed here:
For those whom would like to create a Page that covers more information about yourself and the services that you offer, over and above what you might put in the Welcome page of your website, visit this instructional page:
Finally, for the uninitiated, feel free to browse the WordPress for Beginners Guide available here:
