Simple – Easy!
In the past you would have needed to use a web designer to get yourself an online presence but nowadays with the use of WordPress, there is no need to know code (unless you want to) and with this it means that you can have a website up and running within a few minutes.
Of course it takes the time to build up content so dont expect to have an income straight away but depending on what your line of business is, you can be working online and earning within a month.
How Do You Want To Do This?
Entirely up to you how you want to proceed.
OPTION 1: You can do it yourself and I will show you the steps you need to start your own website
OPTION 2: You can ask me to do it for you and you can take it over once its all up and running !
OPTION 3: Join a platform that will help you set up your own website yourself, talking you through the whole process, support you through the the domain name decision, hosting etc etc This platform is called Wealthy Affiliate and has EVERYTHING you need to run a side hustle.
We Build Websites !
Now we don’t build websites for big companies. We choose to work with those smaller businesses/individuals so we can offer a more individualised service.
The ideal is rather than going on and managing the website, we show the business owner how to add their own material going forward.
DO IT YOURSELF - READ ON
Choose Your Domain Name
The very first step is to choose what you want to call your website. I deliberated long and hard about mine, and even then made a mistake in what I chose. But the good news is, for the most part, domain names are not expensive if you are open minded in what you want. At this stage, if you are funding your website yourself and wanting to keep costs down, be flexible in what you choose.
There are various places you can look for a domain name. One platform – Wealthy Affiliate, offers support on builidng your website if you want to do it yourself but arent totally sure where to go with it.
Web hosting is a service provided by companies (the web host) that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files that make your website accessible on the internet. These companies typically require that you own a domain, and they may help you purchase one. So Wealthy Affiliate ofers you this too. An easy process of purchasing your domain there, and they deal with all the proesses of setting up the site and hosting it for you.
A wordpress website doesn’t need any coding. Its can all be written from the front end. This means that anyone can create a website for their business, or simply for blogging.
You can do this!
If you want the website setting up for you to then do your own blogging, we can do this for you and show you how to then add your own blogs and articles going forward.
Once you have your domain name and hosting sorted out, you then need to upload your writing platform – wordpress – this is free. Yay! something for nothing and thats great! You will be able to choose a theme – this sets the appearance of your website. If you are new to this then go for a free one to start with. It is a bit of work to change a theme later on but right at the start, its easier to use one thats free until you get the idea of wordpress. Again this is something that Wealthy Affiliate will support you in, it is definitely doable.
