037 Get Rid of Your Regular Site and Blogspot. Get a WordPress Blog – Coaching Call with Terri Fivash

September 27, 2011

Today's episode was an awesome privilege.

Listen to This Episode

A few years ago, I started reading a book named “Joseph: A Story“. Now, I was not a big reader. In fact, as a child, I hated reading.

Well, I read it and loved it, and this book was one of the books that helped to catalyze the process of me becoming an avid reader.

In fact, I loved it so much that I ended up giving it to my mother (in St. Maarten) to read and bought another copy for myself.

Come to think about it, I think I will be reading it again – It's that good!

Joseph: A Story

The book is on the story of Joseph in the bible, one of the stories that are dear to my heart. In 461 pages, Terri Fivash goes into every detail imaginable about the story in a way that REALLY brings it to life.

Well, Terri Fivash, best-selling author of Joseph: A Story, is one of the participants in my Reality Internet Marketing series. Imagine that! Yeah, I'm excited!

In this coaching call, we talk a little about how and why she came to write that book, and a number of other books since. Then, we take a look at her website, and we spoke about many changes that I recommend for her to make.

In essence, I basically told her to start over from scratch using the steps I outlined in my 7 Day Bootcamp and  what steps I want her to take. Here's what I know . . .

If you want to build an online presence in today's world, you have to do it the right way. You want to stand out from the crowd, but more importantly – you want to avoid some basic mistakes, right from the beginning.

So be a fly on the wall and listen in on this coaching call. Listen to the tips I give, and stay tuned to see the progression from where the site is today, to where it will be in a few months.

Oh, and if you are into Bible stories AT ALL, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND for you to hop on over to Amazon and pick up a copy of her book Joseph: A Story. Start with that one and see what you think.

    Good morning Leslie,

    Terri sounds like a very interesting person with an awesome story, and I’m super excited to follow her progress as she ups her online ante. As a history nerd (and just about every other kind of a nerd there is), I can also say that I’m super stoked to check out some of her books.

    Leslie, I agree with what you said about premium themes 100%! As you know I just grabbed my first about a month ago, and the support has been AWESOME. I would’ve paid what I paid just for the support that I’ve received for things like customization, updates, and troubleshooting. Invaluable!

    I’ve also had FABULOUS customer service from Host Gator, and strongly recommend them. Their chat feature is CRAZY cool and makes solving issues a breeze. I wish the cable company would take a page from their book.

    Great stuff!


    • I agree with you fully (on everything).

      1. Terri is awesome, and her books are amazing!
      2. Premium is the way to go! You get what you pay for (especially with support).
      3. Hostgator ROCKS for shared hosting. For VPS and Dedicated, I would go with someone else, but they are great for most cases.

      Thanks for the comment.

    The beautiful thing about wordpress is that you don’t have to know ANYTHING about blogging or html to use it 🙂 Same thing with Hostgator. I can testify to THAT! lol

    Thanks so much for this Leslie ! I am an Israelite servant of Yahweh also. I just bought a domain and wanted to signup for hosting with you figured I would have to set aside time to do it or pay someone to do it for me I guess it was a little of fear of the unknown on transferring evrything without messing it up

    Thanks so much for this


    • Yeah, I know it can be a scary thing to get stuff started, but the important thing is to take action. No one gets it perfect. We all make mistakes. The key is, make them quickly, learn from them and move on 🙂

    Great stuff Leslie!

    I have a question I hope you can answer. When you’ve changed domain names in the past, have you somehow converted your current RSS subscribers to the new domain name?

    As you know I’ve gone through same rather significant changes over the last few weeks with my site. I was hoping to be able to somehow convert the subscribers from the feedburner address of the old domain name to the new feedburner address.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.

    Best wishes,


    • Yes I did. I use Feedburner to manage my RSS feed (I think everyone should). That way, when I transferred, I just pointed my feedburner feed URL to my new RSS feed. That took care of everything.

      Are you using Feedburner? Or do you just use the regular feed?
