You don’t have to have been in this industry very long at all to see the “You will never be able to do this on your own” mentality, quickly followed up by the “It will cost you $$$$$ for me to do it for you…”. There’s, of course, nothing wrong with that if you’re wanting someone to build it for you in order to free up time for yourself.
We all know, everything costs time or money, right?
BUT, you should know, you really CAN do it on your own, if you just invest a tiny bit of time into it. Now, let’s get into the things you will need.
I build sites in WordPress because in the end, it really is the best platform. Not only is it YOURS (if you build in Weebly, Squarespace, Wix, or any other platform, you can’t take the site with you if you decide to leave that company, making all of that work you did for nothing). But it is AMAZING for SEO, or search engine optimization. What that means, is you will be able to start moving up on the search engines immediately utilizing some best practices that I will be sharing with you in another post.
First, when using WordPress, you are actually using an application that goes on a server. That is nerdspeak for get a hosting plan that either has WordPress already installed on it, or install it after you get the hosting plan. Those plans can be purchased almost anywhere, but I really dig buyhostingforless.com. They have plans that have WordPress already installed on them, and have awesome support…two great things for someone just starting out! Oh! And they’re cheap, lol!
When you have the hosting set up, if you used the company I suggested, they actually walk you through the basics of setting up your website.
There is a tiny bit of a learning curve with WordPress, which is why I created this super inexpensive course to teach you everything you need to know about making your own WordPress website. From finding a beautiful theme to writing your first post…it’s all there!
AND, if you sign up for our monthly plan (which is only $27 bucks…don’t hyperventilate on me…) you actually get instant access to ALL of our courses! I mean, WHAT?!
