I’ve helped Cyndie with several website projects now: initially on Blogger, then on a migration from Blogger to WordPress, and now on a fresh WordPress site. Unfortunately, Cyndie’s domain and hosting accounts expired (hey, we can all relate as teachers juggling so much that things slip through the cracks!) so we had to start from scratch with a new URL and fresh WordPress install. Fortunately she still had her branding images, so her header was able to be used again.
WordPress Website Theme Change
First, I installed a short coming soon page in case her website received traffic from Pinterest during the transition.
We took this opportunity to switch Cyndie’s website from the more “blog” focused layout she had before to a more “website” focused layout. It also has room to grow in the future as she opens her own site store instead of linking to TPT.
A custom blog page helps with SEO and draws attention to popular posts.
A contact image encourages teachers to get in touch.
A new freebie library is set up as a lead magnet to grow her email list.
It’s set up with initial freebies and room to grow.
