I was in New York City recently attending a week-long course to certify people to become vegan lifestyle coaches and educators. When the other participants found out that I’m a web developer, I was bombarded with questions about how to set up a website, which platform to use, where to go for hosting, and more. I realized that although my verbal answers were helpful, what they really needed was a step-by-step guide with my recommendations, resources, and links.
So, I sat down this past weekend and created a free guide called “10 Things You Need to Know to Create Your Own Professional WordPress Website”.
The guide covers:
- Registering a domain name
- Creating social media accounts for your business
- Why we use WordPress
- Selecting a web hosting provider
- Finding a WordPress theme
- Customizing your theme
- Selecting an email marketing provider
- My recommended WordPress plugins
- Selecting a payment processor
- What content to include on your website
Nowadays, it’s as important as ever to not only have a website for your business, but to have one that looks professional.
In a recent study, 75% of those surveyed reported they had made a judgment about a company’s credibility solely based on their website design.
This means you only have a few seconds when someone comes to your site to make an excellent first impression.
After that, you need to convey your offer and what makes you different and lead the visitor to a conversion (whether it’s signing up for your email list, scheduling a consultation, or buying your ebook).
I hope you find the guide useful. Of course, you can still hire us to assist you. We have various packages based on your needs and budget.
