What IS Included With My BlogPress Subscription?
Here is what is included with your Basic or Premium subscription.
Full-Service Blog Hosting
We handle all of the “techie” server stuff like backups, system updates, and security, so you don’t have to.
Incredible Personal Support
You are not alone. We are here to help you set up your blog, answer all of your blogging questions, and even give you a virtual hug when you’ve had a rough day.
Beautiful Premium Themes
More than 100 high quality, customizable, beautifully designed themes at no additional cost to you.
Need some help getting things looking just right? Let us do it for you. We are here to make sure that you’re blog looks just the way you want! We will be more than happy to help you set up any of our highly customizable, high-quality themes and make basic CSS styling changing as allowed by each individual theme.
Included in this service are things like – setting up widgets in your sidebar and home page, adding your custom header image that you provide, changing the color or font, setting up your menus and navigation, and even helping you set up your opt-in form and contact forms.
Free for Premium Plan Customers. Complete theme setup is available for an additional fee to Basic Plan Customers.
What’s NOT Included With My BlogPress Subscription?
While we provide everything you need to have a successful blog, there are a few optional things that many bloggers choose to add.
Custom Domain Name (about $15 per year).
This is something that is entirely optional and will need to be purchased separately. You can get your custom domain name here.
Once you’ve purchased your domain name, we’ll be happy to map it over to your blog at no additional cost. Just fill out this simple form to get that started: https://theblogpress.com/free-domain-mapping-service/.
This is provided by your domain registrar and should be purchased along with your domain name. A custom email address costs typically around $5 per month.
Custom Images (can range from free to $1- $5 per image depending on the resolution of the picture)
BlogPress does not provide custom images for your blog. You will either need to take those pictures yourself or purchase them from a reputable site.
Custom Theme Design
BlogPress will happily set up any of the themes we offer theme as it is designed and even update the essential CSS components like colors or font settings. We do not provide theme customization services, nor do we allow customers to customize the themes beyond basic CSS and styling. All of our high-quality themes are designed to look great out of the box, so there really is no need to customize them at this level.
Custom Logo Creation ($5 – $500)
Some themes require a custom logo – most do not. If you do need a custom logo, there are many free logo design services out there (you will still have to pay for the final logo).
Email Marketing Service
You will need to sign up for a separate email list service to allow people to subscribe to your blog. We use and highly recommend MailChimp for this. The service is free until you exceed 2000 subscribers.
For more advanced marketing, we use and recommend ActiveCampaign.
Custom Content Creation
While we are here to help you and can point you in the right direction, you own and are responsible for all of the content on your website.
Article Writing Services ($10 – $100 per article)
If you do not have time to write your own content, there are services out there that will do this for you.
