7 Tips When Creating Your Own Website
A website is necessary to any business anymore, but so many I see look so bad, it is embarrassing. I would probably vote for no website over a wrong website, but this short list will help when you are creating your website.
7 tips to create your own website:
1. Make it easy on yourself. Pick Wordpress. Traditional means that it works great, free means that you can use it too. And you should. If you don't want to deal with the technicalities of actually setting up a domain name or hosting account, etc., then have someone do it for you.
2. Pick a Good Looking Theme and be willing to pay for a premium theme.It is like buying the nicest house on the block but filling it with garage sale furniture. You can get some great steals from garage sales, but not always. You'll save time and money if you just went out and bought something nice, to begin with.
3. Have a Layout in Mind is like knowing what car you want before you go shopping. If you don't have an idea, you can spend forever looking at cool cars without ever finding one you want because you don't know what you want. If you need business minded, then make sure it is professional looking and easy to navigate. Most likely, you can eliminate 75 percent of the themes because they have a feeling that isn't professional or business-like or in whatever niche you are going for.
4. Tell Your Visitor To Do Something even if it is to come back tomorrow for another blog post. If you are building a website for business, then you are in business to sell something. Some people hate this part, but think of it like this: you are offering advice or information on your website is like telling someone they have broccoli in their teeth but not telling them where it is or what to do about it. So they will continue to walk around unless they find a mirror or you show them where it is so they can get it out.
5.The website also needs to be attractive enough to hold your visitor's attention, so you might want to invest some money in graphics, or contact the vendor and ask if you can use some of their graphics.
If you don't want to build your website you can outsource the creation of your site and content. For an upfront cost of a few hundred dollars, you can create your website that is very professional and will continue to attract visitors to your affiliate promotions.
6.When you create your website, visitors want to have an understanding of what the product is all about before they buy, so a product review delivers them that information. In your product review, you should give an honest opinion - telling the good and the bad will increase your credibility. Obviously, if you're trying to sell a product, you want to mostly talk about the good points, but including some of the disadvantages will make your review more believable.
7. Get Someone Else's Opinion, because remember when you got that haircut that your Mom may have liked, but you were just a bit of a nerd because of it? No? That was just me? Okay, well when you are looking around, and different designs and you are creating your website, or someone else is for you, it is easy to lose sight of the purpose and exactly what you are doing, so it is good to have an objective party to give feedback about the layout, easy or not easy navigation, as well as the main attractiveness of your site.
