Create your website in less than a minute, yes! Making a website nowadays is easier than you think. WordPress offers great website building tools. It is straightforward and comprehensible, and the best thing is that you don’t need to be an expert to do this. You can create your own website today, and I will show you how, step by step.
Are You Thinking of Building a Website?
Whether you’re planning to start a business, an author website, share poetry, a way to promote affiliate links, or you’re looking to get more attention to a non-profit you’re starting up, a website is your calling card. It is the business. It used to be quite an expensive venture to get a website set up. You had to hire professionals to do that, and it did not get done in less than a minute, not even in a day. It used to be a long (and costly) process …
Now, however, things have changed and several internet platforms offer you the tools to build your website for free. Yes, free! No credit cards and no experience are required. I remember a friend of mine who told me years ago that she wanted to improve her website, but that it was so expensive. I also recall her complaining about the webmaster who didn’t always do things the way she specified. Well, there’s no more need for such headaches. Now it is all in your hands. You’re in control.
Without any further ado, let me show you how it’s done. 🙂
Which Platform Should You Use?
WordPress and SiteRubix are very user-friendly. They offer 1000s of themes that you can customize, making your website look really awesome. Wealthy Affiliate hosts these sites for free, ensuring a safe experience online and excellent site support.
There’s also lots of support in the Wealthy Affiliate community. Whenever you have a doubt or a question, you can reach out, and there will always be someone willing to help you. This is what I love about the Wealthy Affiliate community.
You can either use a free website on SiteRubix or you can opt to buy your own domain at a price range of $10-12 US, which isn’t much at all. And think about it, getting your very own domain is like getting your own piece of real estate online 😉 Its value can only increase over time.
Your Own Website: The Most Important Aspects
- Professional design
- Great look
- Quick speed and load time
- Quality content (write content that is helpful to the reader)
- Easy navigation
- Black text on white background (makes it easier to read)
- SSL (Best to have a https site, makes browsing safer)
How is it Done?
Let’s do this step by step.
- First of all. What kind of website do you want? A free website on SiteRubix? Do you prefer to buy your own domain or do you already own a domain?
- Choose a domain name
- Enter the title of your website
- This is the most fun. Pick your design. There are over 4000 themes to choose from!
And that’s it. You’re done! You are now the proud owner of a website. It is yours, and yours alone. How does that feel, huh? It felt pretty awesome when I built my very first website. Besides this one I also own two other sites where I’ve built content over the last months.
Now that you’ve created your website in under a minute (told you, didn’t I? 😉 ) you can start writing content. That obviously takes longer, but I find it very gratifying to build on my website, write articles, and see it grow. If you’d like to learn how to add content to your website, please check out this training video. It covers everything you need to know.
- Make a list of topics for your website content
- Research keywords for your content
- Jaaxy is an amazing online platform that helps you find the right keywords.
An Easy Training to Create An Awesome Website
If you like to go far with your website; for example, create content that gets noticed, get ranked on Google, Bing, and Yahoo search engines, learn all about SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and find out how social media can help your website, then Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to start. With free sign up (no credit card required, I love that, don’t you?), and 10 free lessons in the entrepreneurial course, you will receive the necessary tools to turn your website into a success.
Question … Do I get credit if you sign up on any of the links I provided? Yes, I do, at no extra cost to you, but I wouldn’t recommend any of these platforms if they weren’t any good. I’m using them myself, all four of them (Wealthy Affiliate, Jaaxy, WordPress, and SiteRubix) and I am very happy with the experience. Here’s me, looking all mysterious in my Wealthy Affiliate profile picture 😉
If you have any further questions or doubts, please let me know. As I said, creating a website is easy and not time-consuming at all. Anyone can create a lucrative business online 🙂
