Hey there and welcome back.
So you want to create a new website for your business? That’s great. A website can be a very valuable tool in helping grow your business, especially in today’s digital world.
But if this is your first time creating a website, you need to know that there are some very important steps that you need to take to create this website.
I mean, there’s figuring out a web host and a domain name. Then there’s finding the developer to build it. Oh, and there’s also the content. And just how are you going to maintain the website after launch?
But don’t worry. This series will walk you through all of those steps so that you know exactly what you’re doing when you’re creating the website.
And if you’re not new to this channel, you’ve probably seen that there’s a similar series already on here. This is just an updated version that has newer and better information.
So let’s dive into more about what this series is going to cover and how it’s going to help you.
What this series will be about
So what will this series cover and how will it be different from the previous one I’ve already done? Well to answer the first question, this series will cover all the steps for creating a website. We’ll talk about why your business needs a website, as well as talk about planning for a new website, because I think that might be the most important step of all.
We’ll also discuss the cost of the website so that a quote you get from a developer or agency won’t freak you out. And we’ll dive into whether you should just create the website yourself. Also, we’ll go over what your options are for creating the website yourself and how to find the right agency or developer for your site.
Finally, we’ll go over all the steps for creating the website and discuss how to manage and maintain the website as the years go on, so as it grows and helps your business.
As for how this will be different from the previous series, it’ll be more in-depth. And also I have a lot more knowledge compared to three years ago. So there should be more useful information for you to gather.
Who is this series for?
And finally, who is this series aimed for? Well, really, this is for anyone who wants to create a website but doesn’t know where to start. This might not answer every single question you have, but it will give you a good starting point. More specifically, I’m creating the series for small business owners who are looking to either create the first website for their business or a new website that is more than their current website.
Also, I hope the series can help any college students who might be looking to create a portfolio website as they go through and graduate from college. I know that when I was a journalism major, we had to create a website for our portfolio in our second year, and my hope for the series is that it can be a bit of a guide to help anyone out in a similar situation.
And speaking of portfolios, I’ve even built a portfolio WordPress block theme to help build a professional portfolio site quickly and easily. You can check that out down in the description below.
So that’s it for today. Next time we’ll really kick the series off by discussing what a website actually is. In the meantime, do you have any questions about websites for your business? Be sure to leave them all down in the description below.
