How To Create A Website: There are a couple of ways to create a website or blog whether it be a blog for business, personal or for information.
How To Create A Website
For the purpose of this post, I will discuss how to create a website with WordPress.
I would suggest that this is the easiest and most inexpensive platform for creating a website or blog and an internet business.
There are usually seven building blocks for creating a website or blog with WordPress so that you can start making money from your internet business.
1. Website Creation Software
WordPress is an online, open source website creation software. It provides a content management system for websites and blogs.
The great thing about WordPress is that it is FREE. You simply download WordPress and upload it to your web-hosting account.
2. Website Creation Theme
When you upload WordPress to your web-hosting account, you will discover that WordPress provides many free themes.These themes are generally fine to use.
However, I usually purchase a premium WORDPRESS THEME because they provide in-depth instructions so that you can customize your website or blog to your liking.
3. Website Hosting
You cannot have a website or blog without website hosting. Therefore, you need to purchase a WEBSITE HOSTING PLAN that suits your business and finances.
There is a lot said both negatively and positively about website hosting companies. I would suggest you purchase a plan from one of the major players. Once your website is up and running, you can decide where to from there!
4. Website Domain Name
Once you have purchased your web-hosting, the next step is your domain name. The domain name is the name of your website.
If your website is about creative photography, your domain name could be: creativephotography.com. You will need to find out if it is available.
If not, you will need to choose one that is available like: mycreativephotography.com or creativephotographynow.com.
5. Website Content
Websites or blogs are full of content. If you create an information website about photography, then you need to fill your website or blog with content relating to photography.
Content is simply information. You build your content around KEYWORDS relating to your website theme.
If you do this well, you will get a lot of free traffic from Google, Bing and Yahoo!
6. Website Traffic
The most difficult part of creating a website or blog is driving traffic to your website or blog. There are only two types of traffic to your website – free traffic or paid traffic.
Free traffic comes from organic search like Google, Bing or Yahoo. Paid traffic comes from Google Adwords, Facebook Ads or Paid Advertisements.
I try to drive free traffic to my websites with SEO, Social Media and Blogging (formerly known as article marketing).
7. Website Monetization
If you have a website of blog and you have visitors to your website or blog, you should consider monetizing your website or blog with Google Adsense, Affiliate Products or an E-book.
I create information websites for Google Adsense. I create affiliate websites to sell affiliate products and I also create websites to sell digital products like E-books.
It is not that difficult to learn how to create a website for Google Adsense, Affiliate Products and Digital E-books.
The best way to learn how to create a website is simply to do it. You will be surprised just how easy it is.
