How to Change Your WordPress Username

Has Wordfence emailed you that a user has been locked out from signing in? Usually the username they tried to sign in is “admin.” Don’t worry because your “admin” username can be changed. We need to change “admin” to strengthen our site’s security. With this, we need to create another administrator user and then login as new administrator user and delete “admin” user.

Anyway, here’s a step by step  guide on How to Change Your WordPress Username.

  1. Go to your WordPress Backend.
  2. Click Users.
  3. Click Add New User.
  4. Fill all the information — preferred username, email, first name, last name, choose a strong password, repeat password, send password, set the role to administrator and CLICK “add new user.”
  5. Log-out.
  6. Log-in with your new username and a strong password.
  7. Go back to Users.
  8. Click “All Users.”
  9. Delete the “Admin” username.
  10. Click on “Attribute.”  Be sure to attribute all content to new user. 
  11. Click on “Confirm Deletion.”

When you login with your WordPress Administration Screens (wp-admin), use the new configured username as soon as you have confirmed the deletion. We’re trying to change the WordPress administrator user ID from default to protect our site from targeted attacks.

Before Marketing

Before marketing, one needs to know who and where to reach his audience. After who and where, then WHAT?  It’s a question that most beginners want to know.

Who and Where

Who and where is your target audience? With this, I use Followerwonk (which is my favorite Twitter marketing app). This app will help find your target audience — who they are and where are they located and when do they tweet. You need to type in your keyword and click on “Search Twitter Profiles.” It will show results of what you’re lookin’.

Target audience would mean people who would love your product, your community, your service. People who are mostly affected with the service you offer, people who wants a solution that you can definitely answer.

What

What to do next is to follow these Three Proven Twitter Marketing Strategies.

Three proven Twitter Marketing Strategies: Attract + Engage + Convert

Attract.

You have to follow, favorite, reply, mention, retweet, and getting retweeted. When you are retweeted and when you use @mention, you are starting a conversation already. Just kept it going and be genuine.

How to retweet the right way? I prefer not to click on the automatic RT but I prefer to do the retweet manually. For reference, here are tips from Laura @Pistachio FittonHow to Retweet the Right Way in 4 Easy Steps.

Engage.

Be helpful. Share tips through blogpost. Retweet, favorite and promote. Start with a good conversation. With this, you build value and people will like and follow you.

Convert.

With your engagement, you are converting your fans and followers into customers.

Please refrain from following as many people as you would want to follow a day. I hope you will give an  ample time to read on Twitter guidelines on following rules and best practices.

Are you ready now to get clients from Twitter and connect with people?

oDesk is an avenue where I can work and connect with international clients.

Here are Five Reasons Why I Love oDesk:

1. Membership is FREE.

You just have to sign up and create your profile. Profile is equal to personal resume and business card rolled into one. And to get paid, set up your payment option.

2. oDesk Team App easily records proof of work. It helps me collaborate with my clients and teammates as well.

oDesk Team App

 

This app served as my virtual office. The Work Diary feature of the Team App tracks my time and takes work-in-progress snapshots at random times in 10-minute intervals.

3.  Finding work is easy to search.

Click on Advanced Search or click on Categories to search for job. Check if client’s payment method is verified and if he has good feedbacks, too.

4. oDesk can track offline time.

There are tasks that cannot be tracked via screenshot. This is called manual time. I have done this once with my client. BUT I make sure that my client and I agreed to this to avoid dispute.

5. It features Freelancer Review Period.

I will receive a notification that my weekly timelogs are available for my review.  I make it a point to complete my review each week before my Work Diary locks on Mondays at 12 noon UTC. At that point, oDesk will invoice my clients and remind them to review my work.

oDesk is allowing freelancers to set their own rates and clients to look for the right candidate. I figure my rate through my experience, capabilities and geography.

Isn’t it awesome to work as an Independent Contractor at oDesk? What do you think?
