Alot of people now a days are creating successful businesses onlines. The most vital part of any online business is your website. You can create a website about anything you want. There are billions of people online searching for everything and chances are there are a ton of people looking for that idea that you have. So how do you get started?
First you need to come up with a name. If you already have a name, that is great! the best names are keyword based. for example, a great name for a website for this post would be createasucess.com notice that i left the website part out. I did this to shorten the name and it also doesn’t limit me to only websites. I could then use this website for many things such as create a successful youtube channel, create a successful twitter account and so on. because the name has that keyword and if i use post with those keywords google will know that the website is more likly about that keyword. this helps getting your page ranked higher on the google result pages. names are very important for that. however this doesn’t mean you cant do well with unrelated names such as alonzowest.com =] – after you have your name (domain), you can buy it here.
Second I suggesst you get hosting from where ever you bought your domain from. but If you need to get hosting you can get one here. its what i use for clients and they have the best prices around. if you have a more complex idea such as a massive social media site you can start with a regular hosting account. just make sure you keep in mind that you will need to move to a dedicated server one day. preparing for this ahead of time can save you alot of stress later on.
third you need to create the website. there are many tools out there today for creating websites for free. the most common and most popular one is wordpress. wordpress is a cms (content management system) and pretty much makes it super easy to manage and create content for your website. most people are using wordpress now. you can also check out squarspace, i personally never used them but i always hear good things about them. i use wordpress for my clients and they seem to love it! if you need help with this part, feel free to contact me
forth you need to plan a strategy on how you are going to advertise. this can be done many ways, some are free and some are paid. for starting out i suggest you do the free ways unless you have the money to diss out. spending money will bring success more quicker but it comes with a price. that doesn’t mean advertising free will not reach the same levels. sometimes advertising for free can out due paid advertising. so im sure your wondering. how do you advertise for free? well social networking. all of us have our favorite social netoworking site. weather its youtube, twitter, facebook or instagram. you can use them all to advertise. just be creative and spread the word about your website. most likely your friends and family on these social media accounts are going to check it out. and if they like it, you can bet they will share it with there friends. i also suggest you create a youtube channel based around the type of content that you have on your site. promote the website in your youtube videos. this can help your site grow very quickly!
fifth is revenue, you can not be successful unless you are making some money. there are tons of ways to make money from websites. the most easiest ways to make money from a website is from banner advertising. I use Niche.Cash but there are many others such as google adsense and buysellads just to name a few.
