Designing your website – there are millions of examples of live websites available for you to look at to get inspiration, in fact there are too many. Think about the sites you like and their layout, the colours, images, menus, types of letter used or font. It normally comes down to how easy it is to use, easy to read, has a logical order and isn’t too fussy. don’t over complicate matters by getting out of your depth to add fancy gadgets and links. Keep it simple, at least to start with and make sure everything works like it should. For example, clicking on a link takes you to the right place.
Select a niche or market – you have to decide what you want to sell or promote as part of your design. It could be your hobby, popular discussion topic, skill or specialist knowledge. The choice is yours. Having a background or understanding of the topic is good as those with a similar interest will spot an imposter immediately. Be honest and open with your readers and website visitors. You need to establish a trust relationship if you expect them to return and especially if you expect them to spend money.
Have a plan of action – make sure you write down the purpose of your website, what you want to achieve and how you are going to achieve it. Take into consideration costs, not only money but time and the timescale you are looking at to expect some form of return. Whether it is visitors to your site, money spent on your products or those you are promoting, or publication of any articles, clicks to your links, etc.
Create quality content – your site has to be search engine friendly whereby anyone looking for information will be directed to your website by Google, Bing, Yahoo. this is achieved by using keywords and having quality, relevant and unique content on your site. Your content can be posts, reviews, pictures and images, media such as videos and so on.
Domain name and hosting company – the first two steps in actually getting your site up and running are selecting a domain name and then registering with a hosting company. This can literally take about half an hour if you have an idea of your website name. Of course it also has to be unique so might take a little trial and error to get right.
