In modern times, it is essential for a business to have a website if they want to succeed in the online corporate world. A simple well-crafted website can generate waves of online traffic which leads to more exposure.
Someone can easily hire a web development company to design and develop a website. However, if you are on a tight budget, there is always another option of creating your website by yourself (this method is comparatively less expensive!)
Creating a website involves several steps:
Step 1 – Select a name for the domain and the hosting provider
A domain usually represents the business and brand, since it is the first thing that is seen by the customer and associates. One can either choose the domain name to be associated with the business or with his/her name. There are also online websites to check the availability of the selected domain name.
Step 2 – Use a Tool to start the creation of a new website
There are many tools readily available online, with the most prominent being WordPress. WordPress can be easily installed on your computer with a single click. There is another option to install it manually as well. After the setup is completed, users will see multiple components of the software and by following the instructions, the structure of the website can be established.
Step 3 – Design the Website
The factor that makes or breaks a website—Web Design. This is all about adequately formatting a website so that it looks good and creates hype among online consumers. Some of the various aspects of designing include:
- Structure the design of the webpage
- Optimize the webpage for cell phones.
- Customize the navigation properly.
- Fill in the necessary components of the website.
- Choose a suitable theme (One that goes with the company’s branding).
- Attach social media handles.
- Include a section for comments.
- Include a section about FAQs
- Include additional information (e.g. Support)
Preparation of Content followed by Promotion and Marketing
We can refer to everything on the website as ‘Content’. After the formation of the structure of the website, content writing follows. The central focus should add relatable content that associates itself with the brand. After this step, the only thing left to do is the promotion of the website after testing.
