No, ManageWP was acquired by GoDaddy.
And, surprisingly, even though there's not been a single user-facing enhancement to the platform since the 2016 acquisition, the platform has not been butchered as one would expect after being acquired by a company like GoDaddy.
If this opportunity is still available, I'd like to join.
If your goal is to raise funding for your business or invest in other businesses (as opposed to investing in traditional asset classes), I'll highly recommend Jason Calacanis' book, Angel: How to Invest in Technology Startups: Timeless Advice from an Angel Investor Who Turned $100,000 into...
The question you're really asking is: "Should I use the off-the-shelf WordPress CMS to build my business website to sell my digital files, or should I learn to code just so I can build the website from scratch with the Angular TypeScript framework?"
That's a question you ought to answer...
And what if those case studies contained tangible results (if you could deliver them)? Could that help win more clients?
As a business owner myself, when I read case studies and testimonies and whatnot, I'm ALWAYS looking for tangible results.
"We did SEO work for Big Co" is not as meaningful...
I guess that depends on what kind of business you're in: do you deliver results, or do you perform tasks?
It's selling qualified leads vs selling ad space.
It's "first page on Google or your money back" vs "we'll do the best we can".
It's 2x ROAS or 10,000 FB likes in 7 days at 2 cents per...
You wouldn't create the email addresses in cPanel. You'll hand over 100% of the email function to the external email provider (GSuite, etc) by changing the domain's MX records to GSuite's addresses, and you'd login to GSuite's control panel to create and manage user accounts there...
cPanel/WHM includes a mail server and a couple of webmail clients.
Look for the (who could have guessed!) "Mail" options in cPanel, you'll find answers to all your questions there.
You should be able to forward emails to another address and set up local mailboxes for domains on the server. And...
As @Mainstream7 has said, you need all these three and more... if you want to do build it yourself and from scratch.
But we're in 2021, you can 100% build such a website without learning any of those technologies.
If you've identified an untapped lead gen marketplace idea and your sole reason...
Perhaps it may be time to take a step back and re-assess your ultimate goal: do you really want to become an "Expert Web Developer", or do you want to own a web development agency?
Thanks for the update though. Good progress!
In addition to the sample course video, it'll also be a good idea of you could create a "sales" or promotional video -- a simple video which agitates the problem and "sells" your course as the ideal solution to the problem.
In fact, IF I can only do ONE, I'd rather do the sales video than the...
That sounds like a good plan, especially the industry you intend to serve.
It's also good that you have your dad to, at the very least, bounce ideas off.
Good luck, and remember to update this thread with your progress!
Actually, no, not exactly 100%.
You're going to pay for hosting and on-going technical maintenance of your website (or subscription fee, if you use a hosted course platform like Teachable), .... and credit card processing fee. And, of course, you'll be 100% responsible for every eyeball that...
Congratulations on taking steps to launch your course!
Do you have an existing list or audience of some sort?
If not, how do you intend selling the course? On your own website, or in a marketplace (like Udemy, Skillshare, etc).
If on your own website, what's going to be the primary way...
