Creating your website doesn’t have to be difficult. It can, however, be time consuming if you are new to this work. But it is still worth learning how to do it because you will always want to make changes. Waiting for a website developer can take days or longer, to fit you in.
Obviously, if your new venture is an offline venture, you may have your hands tied with searching for a good location and setting that up. But I still feel that, initially at least, it is best to set an hour or so aside every day to creating your own website.
Ideas tend to flow when you are already doing something in said field.
WordPress is a really good place to start a website. It’s free and there is soooo much support online to help you. You can make it super secure and the search engines like it.
Have you registered your domain name yet? Suggested reliable companies for domain registration as well as domain hosting are D9 and Siteground. Both have good support, although Siteground may be faster in their Live Chat. Both are active in preventing spam reaching your site. Both can handle large numbers of visitors as well as small. So you have room to grow.
WordPress is very user friendly. Once you have mastered the basics, you are good to go. If you are very new to this, you may find some helpful advice online. However, it is good to get reliable advice as there can be some incompatibility issues with different plugins, etc.
One company who offers you unlimited training videos at a very reasonable price is OS Training. If you hit any snags, their support is great. I was hacked into twice in my early years online and they were brilliant and fast not only in helping me out, but in ensuring it didn’t happen again.
Their short videos are easy to digest and apply one at a time, making progress effortless and rewarding.
If you become super big and wealthy, then you will definitely want to have your own web designer. But in the early stages, WordPress is easy to use and you learn a lot. Even if you already have a website, it’s a good idea to have a blog, too.
