Most new small businesses face the same challenge: setting up and maintaining a professional, attractive, versatile Web site without spending a small fortune.
For about the price of a new toner cartridge for your printer, you can accomplish all that and more. The Bundlelytic Getting Started with WordPress bundle comes with nearly everything you need to launch and operate a WordPress site--nine tools and services that have a combined value of $609, but can be yours for $59.
You supply the domain name; the bundle provides the rest. For example, you get six months of Web hosting from Site5, six months of site and database backup from CodeGuard, and six months of e-mail marketing from Mad Mimi.
Also included: a three-month Hello Bar Pro subscription, which helps you drive visitors to the most important content and/or areas of your site. In addition, your three-month Sendible Solo account will help you establish a presence on Facebook, Twitter, and other social-media sites.
Finally, you'll get access to a wealth of WordPress themes, so you can choose the best look for your site--no design skills required. I especially like the Pippity WordPress plug-in, which lets you create gorgeous-looking pop-ups (the good kind).
What's most impressive about Getting Started with WordPress is that Bundlelytic plans to donated 100 percent of the proceeds to charity--UNICEF's Silent Emergencies Appeal, which provides aid to the "smaller" emergencies that don't draw big headlines.
Thus, here's your chance to score a whole mess of Web site goodies, plus hosting, and support a worthy cause in the process. What's not to like?
By the way, the Bundlelytic page says there are only 300 "copies" of the bundle available, but the developer told me they'll add more if the demand is there.
