What will the website look like?
We’re going to be building the exact same website you see pictured below.
You can click on the image and take a closer look at the demo site, but first, I want to take you through a quick list of the specific features your site will have.
What features will the website have?
Your website will have many great features that will ensure your visitors can find what they’re looking for and encourage interaction with you and your site. Here are just a few:
- Home Page Slider
- Blog Page
- About Page
- Contact Page
- Contact Form
- Social Profile Icons
- Mobile Ready
How much will the website cost?
There are usually two main costs that you’d encounter when building a website with WordPress: registering a domain name; and signing up for website hosting.
But if you use the hosting provider that I recommend – SiteGround – your costs will be even less.
Let’s take a closer look.
- Domain Name – $0.00
Most hosting providers charge $12-$15 per year, but if you register your domain name with SiteGround, it’ll be completely FREE for life!
- Website Hosting – $3.95/mo.
The cost of website hosting will vary depending on the pricing plan you choose. And again, SiteGround makes this very affordable with a basic plan that costs only $3.95 per month.
So, as you can see, building a website on your own is extremely affordable, and of course a lot cheaper than hiring someone else to build one for you.
How long will it take to build?
If you were to follow the ebook, step-by-step and didn’t run into any problems along the way, you could finish building your website within an hour or two.
In fact, in the video below video we will walk you through the whole process in just an hour and 51 minutes.
How do I change something if I don’t like it?
It’s very simple to change almost anything you don’t like about your site. In fact, I’ve included 3 bonus sections that show you how to change the following three most common things I get requests for help with:
- Bonus 1: Make Slides For Your Home Page
This chapter will show you the exact tools you need to create your own slides and how to use them. You’ll be able to create your own beautiful slides to show off your business.
- Bonus 2: Change Your Website’s Color
More likely than not, you’ll what to change the color of your site to something other than the default orange. I’ll show you the quick and easy steps that will help you get the color of your website just right. Below you can see what the site looks like in blue and red.
- Bonus 3: Create A Home Page Optin Form
Some businesses will benefit more from having an opt-in form on their Home page. I’ll show you exactly how to add a beautiful custom form and how to integrate it with MailChimp.
In addition to these three changes, I’ll show you how to make even more changes to your home page and other pages. And if I don’t cover something you want to do, you can always get help from me in the forums.
What if I don’t have any technical or design skills?
I really wish I could dispel the belief that one needs to be able to use HTML or CSS to build a website. Heck, you don’t even need to know what those things are.
All you need to be able to do is follow directions and use your mouse and keyboard. I promise, it really is that simple.
And to demonstrate just how easy it really is, I’ve enlisted the help of my 9 year old son to build this exact website. In the video above, I instruct him and he builds the whole site by himself.
And if he can do it, I know that you can too.
