Cheri Masu -- It sounds like your best option would be to find a wholesaler that will drop ship. But it probably really depends on what type of products you want to sell. Perhaps you could post this question as a new discussion and tell us more specifics.

I am interested in selling products on a niche site.
I don't want to store the products at home. What are my options?

Greetings all!

just wanted to drop a quick note to everyone and let you know that there is just a little over 24 hours left for the WPLaunch early adopter discounts.

If you're tired of the hassle of setting up WordPress yourself, and you're ready to LAUNCH, all you have to do is get on this list and I'll send the discounts out right away where you'll be taken straight through to the page where you will get your $100 off.

Get the WPLaunch discounts sent straight to your inbox here: https://wplaunch.net/list

The early adopter discounts end tomorrow night at midnight eastern, and that $100 deal WILL NOT be available again, so if you're on the fence, now is the time to jump in!

There is zero risk - WPLaunch comes with a 30 satisfaction guarantee. If you're not satisfied, you'll get a 100% refund.

Let me know if you have any questions, or I can help in any way -

All the best -

thank you - was caught in mid-conversation with someone by my friend, Jacob, and it needed to be updated BADLY. 

Hope you like the book - it's one of the best i've read in a while. Ive noticed that some books just hit you at the right time in the right place, and you just "get it." This was one of those for me, much in the same way as Gary V's "Crush It" was.

Comment by Diane Krause on July 7, 2014 at 8:40am

Rob -- I hadn't even heard of the book, but it looks VERY interesting. I just bought it for my Kindle. :) Now I'm going to go read your post. 

And, nice new picture! You look very thoughtful. :)

Long weekend success story -

I wrote this post reviewing Jeff Walker's new book LAUNCH, and it must have hit home. Michael Hyatt tweeted it out to his followers, and then Jeff Walker tweeted it out too. That's an awesome feeling and it sent a TON of traffic to my site over the weekend.

Greetings all! I've been getting some great questions about WPLaunch and I'll be doing a post on it soon, but I wanted to go ahead and get these out to the My Website Workshop tribe, should you have any questions!

Don't forget - the deadline for the $100 off is coming up soon! Get signed up here if you'd like me to send you the discounts!

Is there any kind of guarantee?

Yes - there is. If you are not satisfied with your WPlaunch kit, please know that we are here to serve and will make things right. If you cancel your WPLaunch kit or hosting service within 30 days we will refund you the full price you paid, all you need to do is contact us here using our contact form, and let us know you want a refund. No refunds are provided after more than 30 days following your purchase. If you cancel your account, be aware, that your hosting, analytics, and WordPress account will be removed immediately upon issuing a refund, and unrecoverable.

What is CloudFlare?

CloudFlare is a content delivery network (CDN) and security tool that helps manage your DNS, make your site fast, and helps with security. This tool assures that your site is fast, managing your DNS (like mail records for Google Apps, subdomain setup for other applications, etc.) is super easy, and it’s secure.

What happens to a site when someone chooses to get hosting somewhere else after 1 year?

If someone wants to leave after the first year - it's not a problem. Anyone who wants to leave after the first year are free to go - your WordPress site is yours and yours alone. However, you should know you won't be able to take your premium analytics with them. That's something you can get as a part of your WPLaunch kit. But otherwise, you're free to go (we hope you'd want to stay!), and take all your stuff with you - domain, WP installation & all.

Can you migrate my existing WordPress content?

ABSOLUTELY. Contact me at hello@wplaunch.net so we can talk about what your needs are.

Do you have anything to help me learn about wordpress?

I'm working on adding some training videos to make this as valuable a resource for WP users as I can conceive, so stay tuned! They'll be listed in your member account page when they're done.

What do you want to learn about WordPress? Please let me know!

Do you do custom design?

My business - Orracle Media - does custom design work, but this service is not focused on that aspect. If you need custom design work, I'd love to talk to you about it, but WPLaunch is getting you up and running with a ready-to-go WordPress site FAST, using your choice of theme - either a premium theme like Studiopress, or one of the great options for free themes.

Do you have a question about WPLaunch? Please let me know! I'm happy to help in any way I can. 

Looking forward to helping you LAUNCH!

Here is the link again to get signed up for the $100 discount.

All the best -
