If you have basic computer skills and can make your way around a keyboard there is no reason why you cant make your own website.
There are so many choices we have put together a step by step instruction of the best way of getting your business online.
First up we are going to say avoid wasting your time on any solution that claims to be FREE. Ultimately with anything that is advertised FREE there will always be a catch – there will be a hosting fee, a fee to remove advertising, or a fee to access more features.
The solution we are letting you know about is one of the best out there. It is responsive – so is able to be viewed on a mobile device, iPad or on a desktop. One website that scales up and down to suit the size of the device it is being viewed on.
There are 3 main things you need to build a website:
1. A Domain name
You need to buy a domain name – www.yourbusinessname.com. This is like your street address telling people the location of your website. You can use this name on promoting your business – in your email signatures, on your business card, in phamplets or in advertisments.
2. Website Hosting
There are many different hosting companies to choose from. Generally you are looking for price, reliability, space and customer service. While we have used many different hosting companies in the past here are some website hosting options for you to have a look at.
3. A website
This is the fun part! A website can be built by many different methods. You need to add your content which will consist of pages of what services you offer and anything else you want to let the world know.
