Build a Professional and Profitable Website in 1 Hour
Are you one of the millions of people who need a website, but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’ve gone as far as getting a quote from a so-called web professional only to find out that a basic website is going to cost you more than your first car?
Allow me to let you in on a little secret: you could be building pages on your very own website in less than an hour, for less than $100. What’s more, you’ll be using the same technology as the experts, and you’ll save yourself thousands!
Here are the three things you’re going to need to build your first website:
1) Domain Name – your domain name identifies your website, so it should be easy to remember and contain relevant keywords. Until you have a little more experience, only look at “dot com” domains, without numbers or hyphens. Domains are leased, not bought, so they must be re-registered each year. There’s a huge range of domain registrars, but don’t buy one yet – the right web host will register your first domain for free.
2) Hosting Account – your hosting account is where you store your website. You should only ever need one web host; with the right host, you can store as many websites are you like, with unlimited emails, storage space and bandwidth. Unfortunately, some web hosts aren’t as reliable as others, so the best way to chose one is on the recommendation of someone who uses it themselves.
3) Content Management System – a content management system allows you to build web pages without having to learn any programming languages or HTML. It’s just like using a word processor, but when you click the save button, you’ve built a new web page! On top of that, you have total control over your website at all times. Never again will you have to wait for someone else to update your website for you, and have to pay them for the pleasure of doing so!
The best software to use is WordPress. It’s typically known as blog software, but with a little tweaking, we can turn it into a fully functional content management system. WordPress is easy to use, completely customizable, and – best of all – it builds search engine-friendly web pages. Your website will start getting visitors from day one.
Finally, generate a passive income from the visitors to your website by signing up to Google AdSense. This program displays ads, relevant to the content on your website, on each of your web pages. Any time a visitor clicks on one of the ads, Google pays you!
It really is that simple! You could be working on your new website just one hour from now!
