WordPress Podcast: WordPress for Affiliate Businesses: Outsourcing Works
This weeks guest was Al Carlton of SelfMadeMinds.com and Coolest Gadgets, amongst many other blogs. We talked about how Al outsources everything on his blogs, so much that he doesn’t even have to write on them himself anymore. Some of the things he mentioned doing:
- He hires writers (through for instance the Problogger job board).
- He outsources design (through various designers and f.i. 99designs.com).
- He also outsources SEO and viral content creation (through several agencies).
There’s much much more, check out his full presentation on the topic on the recent ThinkVisibility conference. We later went on to discuss how to build a successfull site, and Al stressed how important it is to pick a good niche, a fact overlooked so often.
Security issues with WordPress
Security is always an important matter and WordPress is no more immune to hacking than other software available today. It’s important that you and your web host be aware of the potential compromises going on like the one discussed by Chris Pearson as a unscheduled guest on today’s show.
