Blogging should be a big part of your well rounded automotive internet marketing strategy. If you haven’t jumped on this band wagon yet it’s easy to do and the benefits can be huge. Here’s a guide for all the new bloggers out there for how to set up your very own WordPress Blog.

To start with you’ll need a domain name to put the blog on. This is really easy just be sure to pick a relevant domain name, or if you want you can just set up a sub-domain of your current website at The sub domain is a great solution for auto dealers and you should be able to set one up easily through whoever hosts your current site.

Installing WordPress on a domain or sub-domain is equally as easy, most hosting providers have a quick one click automatic install for WordPress. If  yours does not WordPress’ website makes it very easy to download and install WordPress on any site. Once installed it’s as easy as downloading a theme you like and starting to write. Refer to some of my previous blogs on blog writing for advice on this subject.
