Create Your Own Website Easily

You need to create a website to better promote your business, but how can you do it? Read on and find some helpful advice in your considerations.

When you put your new website together, you want it to have a nice crisp and robust appearance. For starters, planning the design and content is the first step to success. How do you want your website to look? You should plan that your website has a consistent appearance to what your brand is. Make the color scheme of the website consistent with the color of your logo.

What are your options to build it? You have a few possibilities. Here is what you could choose:

  • Hire a website developer do it for you. While the costs of developing a website can vary greatly from $2000 to $25,000 and higher depending on your needs, you get to focus on what you do your best: running your business. If you are on a budget and desire to work with an expert, providing flexibility to what you want done can ensure that the expense of developing your website clocks in at the lower end. If you are willing to pay more, you can work with a website developer who will draw up a prototype of your desired website so that the layout and appearance is aligned with your preferences.

  • Learn how to program it yourself. Learning how to program yourself can be as complicated or as simple as you want it to be. For starters, learning HTML through a reading a book is the best approach. Learning HTML will at least give you the background to put content into website templates, and starting from a template with a clean and robust appearance in both a desktop and on a smart phone will ensure that other skills are not required. We recommend checking out the books A Smarter Way to Learn HTML & CSS: Learn it Faster or Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery Set.

    Once you've learned the basics of HTML, choose a website theme template at Themeforest and create your own website!

  • Use a drag and drop website builder. This option offers the most ideal for those with a limited budget and a limited amount of time to allocate to building a new website, but offers the least amount of customization possibilities. Weebly is a very easy to use tool that allows you to easily drag and drop components to where you want them to be. We recommend purchasing their Starter Plan so that visitors can find your website through search engine indexing.
