Can I Build My Own Website?
Build your list 3x faster on Autopilot
If you want to have a business - or if you want to sell anything at all - you need to have a website of your own. But a website can cost money, and when you are trying to use your money to start your business, it can be tough to spend extra on a website. Because of this, many people with their own business also want to know if it is possible for them to build their own website. If you have ever wondered this yourself, the answer is that you absolutely can - once you know a few important things! You will first have to register your own domain name, before you can ever build your website on your own. It can be relatively inexpensive to register a domain name (as little as $10 per year), so the toughest part is finding a domain name that will work for you. If you or your company has a unique name, this should be easy; it can be much harder, though, if your desired name is already taken! The next step will be finding a template that will enable you to pretty much set up and run everything on your own. You will be able to update, change, and adjust your site whenever you want if you use a template such as a Wordpress template. And you will need to make sure you put in some time doing research if you have a desire to design your website on your own. The first thing you need to research is basic HTML coding; this is not very complicated stuff, but it will enable you to have total control over many aspects of your website. And the other bit of research you will need to do is make sure you find out as much as you can about the process of building a website. The book Learning Web Design is one of the best resources for this, and although it is a $45 book, it is only $25 on Amazon! Once you put in the time to learn what you are doing, you will be able to start building your website - and you will be able to make it look exactly how you want it!
