Connecting hearts online
Peggy uses her site to help women seeking personal wellness that embraces mind, body, spirit and emotions.
Peggy, where did you start?
I was introduced to the Site Setup Kit while I was taking a class with Kelly Kingman and Pace Smith called The Way of the Peaceful Entrepreneur.
I already had a site but knew that I wanted it to be more interactive and perhaps offer teleclasses. I set up a second site as well to blog about what it is like to live with a chronic illness (I have MS). That is when I purchased the Site Setup Kit.
I set up that site (which is transitioning to Creating Heart Connections – long story). I did have someone design my header (for both sites).
I am a do-it-yourselfer but it takes a long time to learn by trial and error so I was delighted to find a program that offered step-by-step instructions. I have since converted my Creating Heart Connections website to Prose from Dreamweaver and before that a Thesis theme set up by a webmaster.
I love working on my website and though it is not complete I am pleased with how it looks.
What was the most challenging part of putting together your new site?
The most challenging part for me is the SEO. I am still trying to figure all of that out… so I guess I haven’t overcome that part yet. I need to spend some time on that module and use the forum.
What advice do you have for people who are about to start working on their websites?
If you want a site that is self-managed and looks professional, consider purchasing the Site Setup Kit. It is an investment that will pay for itself when considering what it costs to pay a webmaster for updates to your website….and it is fun.
It occurs to me that if you are a business that employs several or many employees that purchasing the Site Setup Kit becomes an invaluable resource for maintaining consistency during times of transition due to staff changes, etc.
Anything you’d like to add?
Just that I love it. I have sold one program as an affiliate and am using what I have learned from Site Setup Kit to assist others in making changes to their websites or starting a blog. I have learned a great deal from both Wendy and Pamela … without some of the pain of trial and error.
