You’ve probably visited a lot of other websites and already have some ideas about what you want to have with your own website. In fact, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or invest a tremendous amount of time to find great resources to help you build your website.

Here I will share with you how to get the website started without the hassle of conducting a search on the Internet.

1. Define your website. What it will include, how it will be organised, what it’s meant to accomplish. It’s critical that you understand your goals and objectives and work to ensure that the website you plan for can deliver the desired results.

2. Name your website. Websites are accessed by an online address (IP) or Domain Name. You need to come up with one domain name for your website that’s easy to say, spell and remember. (You need a name that isn’t already being used, to check the domain name availability, you may visit http://www.internic.net/whois.html).

3. Build your website. Creating content and coming up with a design that works well for your website. You will learn what right tools to use and useful ideas for building the right website, from posting useful content to processing credit card orders online, everything you need to consider is included here.

4. Publish your website. You have the domain name you’ve set up and ready to publish your pages. Here you’ll get the basic insight into how your pages and files go from your computer to your Internet space.

5. Market your website. Once your website is up and running, it’s time to get the promotional machine in gear. From registering with Search Engines like Google to direct e-mail marketing campaigns and adding a guest book to help you create marketing lists and programs, you need to come up with an effective marketing plan to drive traffic to your website.

6. Evaluate your website. Website change and grow as you learn what works and what doesn’t, here will brief you on what to do post-launch to ensure your site remain effective.

Remember, understand your website’s goals and objectives is vitally important to its success. There’s no point building a website that you don’t even know what to communicate and how it will be used.

Good luck! 🙂
