1. Upload your file to SoundCloud.

2. Make sure the sharing is set to “public.”.

3. Copy the link and paste it in the”status” area as a tweet on Twitter.

4. Optional: add a description in the text field above the link and a short link back to your site.

5. Click “Post” to publish.

What is WordPress (self-hosted version)?

What is WordPress (self-hosted version)? The WordPress self-hosted software (not or WordPress MU) I am referring to is FREE, open-source software that…

  • is constantly evolving by an international community of developers (not Microsoft or Adobe)
  • is the #1 blogging software available (and is also used for websites)
  • anyone can download and install on their own web hosting (I use SiteGround)
  • is easy to learn how to use (FAR easier to use than Dreamweaver!)
  • is highly customizable with WordPress plugins and themes (learn which ones to use!)
  • must be kept up-to-date and be backed up regularly (the not-so-fun, but still easy part)
  • can be used for e-commerce, embedding audio and video and as a CMS (content mangagement system) in addition to blogging (you can make money easily)

What is involved with a Web Weaver monthly retainer agreement?

A Web Weaver™ monthly retainer agreement is a written document and mutually beneficial exchange of monies and services, co-created between 2 parties through dialogue and email.  The monetary exchange is pre-paid through a recurring PayPal transaction or with check or cash.

The retainer agreement allows a client to purchase a set number of Web Weaving™ hours per month, thereby engaging the Web Weaving services regularly over a period of time, with a minimum commitment of 6 months.  Hours may not be carried over to the next month if not used.

Making a retainer agreement represents a higher level of commitment from both parties to an ongoing working partnership that supports successful outcomes (such as increased website traffic, growing an email list, growing sales, improving social media reach, etc.) through ongoing site improvements, attention and communication about the effectiveness about the Web Weaving services applied to the WordPress site.
