Website Design and SEO

 

In this modern age, a professional and comprehensive website is vital for your online presence. Research shows that about 97% of consumers search the internet for local businesses, while 94% of business-to-business (B2B) buyer checkout companies online first before they make their purchase.

While you can start a website without any difficulty with the tons of website creation tools available online, the question remains “how do I start a website?” Getting started might be intimidating for people who have not had a business website before. But, reading through this 10 tips for starting a website will ultimately help you in the journey.

1. Define Your Goal

All business websites are different because each business serves a different purpose. For your website to stand tall among its contemporaries, or for people to buy your service or/and products, then build the site around your goal. This way, it will provide relevant information and also entice potential clients to contact you. A website that lacks definite purpose will cost you time and money without any benefit to show for it.

2. Develop Your Content

Before you start to build your business website, decide on what its content should reflect. As the website owner, start creating your content as soon as possible. Even if you want to hire a professional content writer to edit or polish it, only you know what the business is all about, no one else.

3. Find An Excellent Web Hosting

Next is to find a good web hosting company with a full server to store your website content and make it available online for a selected duration of the plan. Web hosting is important because they provide additional tools for making your website a success.

When you have decided to choose a hosting service, look for one with great pricing options and one that offers a top-notch customer service. A service that can guide you through the process of installing site builder (e.g WordPress).

4. Understand The Package of Your Plan

Every hosting company has variables in the prices of their plan. A rise in a plan price will gradually remove quantity limitations, and yet, have additional protection for your site. Package of a plan may have a domain, subdomains, and possibly email accounts. Once you have decided to purchase a hosting plan, you need to understand the payment options. You can choose to pay in full for a year or beyond instead of paying month to month.

5. Check If Your Domain is Available

Your domain name is your blog or website name, e.g www.domainname.com. This is essential because it’s the URL that will take people to your site. So, it’s advised to come up with a name that says what your blog or website is all about. Use a name that can be easily pronounced, simple and short to remember, and avoid using numbers because people might be confused whether to spell it out or to type the specific number.

Make sure the name you choose is available by going to a domain registrar website and search for it.

6. Purchase Your Domain

After you find a domain name that is available, create an account with the company and buy the domain name. Note that you can pay for the domain name alone or with other packages such as website add-ons, security options, and site backup. Also, you can add a domain privacy to your package if it’s available. This prevents companies that build websites from gaining access to your personal information.

7. Select A Website Creator That You Can Use

After you have purchased your domain name, the next question should be, “how do I build a website”? Login into cPanel and scroll down to softaculous where you can select a pre-made site builder. Most of the hosting companies come with the WordPress; a giant website building platform, and can be installed in minutes. WordPress comes with hundreds of free themes that you can select and build your website upon.

Other website builders include Wix, Squarespace, etc. but these platforms may attract additional cost.

8. Personalize & Make Your Website Responsive

Once you have selected a theme that is suitable for your content, start to set up your primary pages using the site creator you have chosen. You have the option to edit the template layout or start from scratch.

WordPress websites are responsive, so there’s nothing to worry about. But if you’re using other site builders, make sure you set up your site properly so it can be responsive.

9.  Launch

When setup is complete, locate the option for you to go live and activate it.

10. Tips To Follow

My first recommendation is to come up with templates and a process to write, edit, and finalize the content. Repeating the process over and over will save you a lot of time when a template is used for blog posts, and a process for image and videos’ modification.
Next, search and study the term Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to be sure that the description of your blog posts and pages are precise and engaging.
Lastly, use a reduced image size to enable your site load quickly.

Conclusion

Although starting a website might be slow at the beginning but you’ll improve on your skills as you continue to build your site. You’ll eventually publish your website or blog posts in a few hours. Once your site is live, don’t forget to update from time to time.;
