How to Build a Website in 5 Easy Steps
Getting online doesn’t need to be time-consuming, costly or stressful. You can easily create a website that meets all your business and personal needs - and in many instances, you can do all of this for free or on a budget that works for you. We recommend Wix. Wix is easy to use, has beautiful design features, diverse product offerings, an impressive App Market and gives you professional results.
1. Pick a Template
With Wix, there’s no need to start from scratch. Choose from over 500 professionally-designed templates for every kind of business - from online stores and dog walking services to yoga and photography.
2. Make It Yours
Once you have a template you love, make it look exactly the way you want. With the Wix Editor, all you have to do is drag and drop to customize anything on your site. Add images and videos, upload your own font and create a visual story that tells your visitors what you’re all about. Play around with amazing on-trend design features, like slideshows and parallax scroll effects, to really make your site stand out. Include a contact or subscription form, so you can stay connected with potential customers or fans of your work. As your business grows and your site reaches a wider audience, consider adding a booking system, online forum or blog. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a web pro, Wix has all the tools you need to create your site.
3. Choose Your Domain
Your domain name is often the first thing clients see when they search for your website. Be sure to pick a name that’s unique, easy to remember and reflects what you or your business is about. You can get your own domain with Wix*, or easily connect one you already own.
4. Get a Personalized SEO Plan
Answer a few questions about your site and the location of your business and let the Wix SEO Wiz do the rest. You’ll get your very own personalized SEO plan - and it’s totally free! The plan includes suggested keywords to use on your site. This helps you stay ahead of your competition by using words people actually type when they search for businesses like yours online. Plus, your SEO plan includes a step-by-step checklist that tells you exactly what you need to do (and why) so your site will rank higher on Google. Lastly, your plan offers detailed insights, so once your site has enough data you can quickly see what’s working or what needs improvement. It’s like having an SEO expert by your side 24/7.
5. Publish & Go Live
Once you’re happy with your Wix website, click publish to share it with the world. You can always go back to make changes, add fresh content and include more professional features. You decide.
*Note: Wix works on a freemium model, meaning it’s always free to start but users need to upgrade to get all their Premium features. But don’t get discouraged. With a free Wix site, you still have access to each of the three editors (recap: Wix ADI, Wix Editor and Wix Code), all of their designer templates and features, the App Market, support and more. Upgrading to Premium gives users the added benefit of more storage, bandwidth, a custom domain, removal of Wix ads and more.
Ready to get started on your own website? When you build your website, it’s a good idea to prepare these items in advance, but you can always add them later.
Your contact info
Account details for your social channels (usernames and passwords)
High-quality images of you, your products, or your business (If you don’t have any images, you can always use free ones from Wix.)
Videos (If a picture says a thousand words, videos can say even more. Add videos that show a product in action, or a behind the scenes of your business.)
Your Website Checklist
Website builders are all-in-one site creation toolkits. While each website builder is different, most offer a few key features such as: templates, stock images, design tools, mobile responsiveness, custom domain names and a cloud-based editing platform. Some builders even tailor their features to match the needs of your specific business (e.g. hotel or restaurant), provide promotional tools (email marketing and search ads), guidance with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and more.
