Week 1 is fairly simple for anyone who has set up their own blog or website before.
We got Week 1 PDF’s called
Week 1 – which basically gives us an overview of how John got started in online marketing and a brief overview of his youth and education basically let us know he left school at 16 with few qualifications meaning that anyone can make it online and they don’t need to be a computer whiz or college educated to do so.
Checklist – I printed this 1 page PDF so I could check off each task as it was completed as someone totally new should do. After each video step you check off your task and know you are ready for the next week once your checklist is done.
Updates – This pdf is for those of us doing the coaching program the second time around. John originally did this coaching program 2 years ago. So he shows in this document how the Domain Name Registrar and Domain Hosting Websites look now as opposed to 2 years ago and in the videos so we can easily complete our tasks.
Audio of the Week – Is a phone consultation between John and Jerry Holliday discussing how Jerry can improve his business using some of John’s experiences and tactics. I downloaded this so I could listen again at any time.
Step by Step Videos – These videos are truly step by step even baby step for a complete beginner down to how exactly to copy and paste instead of just saying copy and paste and having someone lost right off the bat. When I saw this I knew this was going to be an excellent course which shows in detail how to get your own business off the ground and producing results. Many claim step by step for the complete beginner but John’s course here is the first I have seen to deliver.
Step 1 – Buy Domain Name
This is pretty straight foreword. John shows how to purchase your domain name and in the event the domain you want is not available what options you have as an alternative. As in, if YourName.com is not available then go with Your-Name.com or some other options.
This is super easy – done in less than 10 minutes.
Step 2 – Register With D9 Hosting Company
Shows step by step how to register your hosting account. If you already have hosting with cPanel you can use that and just follow along in the video.
Step 3 – Edit DNS Settings
This shows you how to direct your domain name to your hosting account. Another simple task. Copy and Paste your hosting account DNS settings to your domain DNS settings and your done.
5 minutes at the most.
Step 4 – Set Up Email Accounts
Here John shows us how to set up our website domain email accounts and also how to forward all email to your primary email account like Mac Mail, Windows Mail, Gmail, Hotmail, etc.
A little more involved but still step by step by John so done in about 20 minutes.
Step 5 – Test Everything
We test our Domain name in the browser to be sure everything is working correctly and what to check if not.
Check your email forwarding and troubleshooting.
And we are done for this week. Very Simple and geared for the complete beginner. ALso keeps everyone in the class together not allowing others to jump ahead. This is best to keep everyone at the same stage.
We register here to the forum for those experiencing problems with any of the steps can get help from others with more skill or have experienced the same issues and have resolved them. Also, John and Daniel (Moderator) are here to help with any other issues that come up.
Week 1 is very simple in my opinion even for a beginner but I am sure is designed that way to bring everyone along slowly at first as to not overwhelm anyone.
