How to start a website business online? For many of us, the question should be how to start a business with no money needed? Here we can answer both these questions.
A presence on the internet for a business is now almost essential – just like being listed in the yellow pages of the phone directory used to be. So, what about becoming a website builder? I will show you the best training for website design and website building.
You may have heard some marketing systems touting that you do not need a website to succeed in online commerce. As far as you should be concerned right now, they are wrong! It is possible to make money online without a website but your opportunities will be restricted and you will also be very much dependent on the sites of others.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you are going to learn how to build beautiful, first class websites. The training provided will both show you everything you need to know and give you the tools you will require.
When you have followed the training and understand the basics of website design, you will want to know what you should do next:
A Few Ideas To Start Your Website Business
Don’t Be Afraid To Practice With A “Live” Site
This is a very cheap way to learn and try new things. You can buy a domain for next to nothing, even nothing if you use one of your two free sites at WA. Your hosting is included at WA, and your theme and plugins can all be free also. Get friends to visit or test your site – you can also ask the WA community for their input and feedback which will prove to be invaluable information for you.
When building your practice site, or any site, concentrate on the content first then try and monetize it later. You will hear this a lot and for good reason – if a site has nothing to keep people interested, they will just move on to something else – and why would they bother to stop and buy? Never forget that.
Objections To Using A “Live” Site
An objection that I have heard from several people over using a “live” site is that they feel everything should be close to perfect before the launch; they don’t want someone to visit their site when it is still a bit of a mess.
I understand this, and you can keep everything in “draft mode” if you wish but in my experience it is much better to put everything out there.
Why? Because, first of all, it will take a few months before your page gains traction and trust with Google anyway so very few people are going to see it, unless you spend a lot of money on advertising your site.
Secondly, the main purpose of this exercise is to PRACTICE. That means not only writing and using images, but experimenting with layouts, themes, seeing how your site looks and how quickly it loads on mobile, desktop, tablet. Check out various different web browsers, check out your links and whatever you don’t like, change it.
Have Fun With It
Build sites for local businesses
Expanding From Local To Global
Local Non-Profit Organizations And Charities
Offering your skills to non profit organizations is a great way to advertise your service – you may make little or no money but as long as you have done a good job and let them all know that you did it, you may end up with a referral or two.
You gain good experience along with the satisfaction of helping out society, not to mention the possible referrals that may arise.
Build A Site For The Purpose Of Selling It
Once you are completely comfortable in this field, to the point that you consider yourself to be an authority on constructing websites, you can even offer to teach and train others. WA offers several real life case studies of building a site so you can see for yourself how the training might be structured.
This may or may not be a huge income generator for you but it is something else of real value that you could offer.
