Now, something about “web presence” …

If you are looking for a website, it’s because you need internet presence. You’re right. Online presence is what will let people easily give you their business these days. So if the need is already there, the next important step is the availability and visibility of your business.

… and the Crucial elements of a Website

Next you must have hosting which is the place that stores your website and makes sure it serves quickly and efficiently to people that visit your website.

Besides, a modern, quality site (as opposed to one that is lacking) must:

  • have a Professional Design & Look (The first visual element that greets a

visitor to your site) spot on to capture visitors and make them stay

  • have a responsive design that adapts to tablets & mobile devices
  • be secure
  • be functional
  • have great search
  • load very quickly
  • have a great structure for the user so they can find products easily
  • be built so Google can find and index its products with ease
  • be easy to Navigate
  • have Quality website content
  • use a CMS (see below how this simplifies life for you)

WordPress, My Choice

Once your website has the above features, you are in for success and profits. But before that you would need a framework which “simplifies” the process. What I recommend is WordPress.

Here are reasons why I recommend using WordPress:

  • Typically very easy to install and set-up (click of a button at Wealthy Affiliate)
  • No HTML, no code, no need for some advanced knowledge
  • Over 1,400 different website templates to choose from
  • One click install over 10,000 “add on” features and website functionality
  • Lots of support and help within the community
  • the world’s most widely used website framework

How do I get a website?

This very website is created on WordPress which is the exclusive framework at Wealthy Affiliate. Now I want to show YOU how you can get your very own WordPress website and how to build a website in the next 5 or so minutes.

The Importance of WordPress, a true Content Management System (CMS)

To build a website a few years back one had to have programming knowledge and manually code HTML. Not an easy task at all. Today, things have changed. The technological barriers have disappeared completely because of Content Management Systems like WordPress. Therefore anyone, absolutely ANYONE, who can click on a mouse can also build a website these days and run it successfully online.

Steps to building your website            

First, you choose a domain (free or paid)

The first step to creating a website is to choose a domain (like the one above).

There is a free domain available at Wealthy Affiliate that works like any paid one.

However it would be advantageous to have your own domain:

  • One, it costs as low as $10 a year
  • Two, as a premium member at Wealthy Affiliate, you can host unlimited domains that you own).

Ideally you must choose something that is closely related to your website theme (what your website is going to be about). But you can also settle for a site that can be branded. Don’t worry about this. For should you need help choosing a domain, the discussion at Wealthy Affiliate will help you do so in a minute.

Then, you build Your Website

In the next step you will be building your website using SiteRubix, the state of the art website builder at Wealthy Affiliate.
