How to make a website

Should you make your own website

So you have decided that you finally want to get your small business online but you don't know how to do it or what you need to do. One alternative is to commission someone like 123 2 Web to make a functional and beautiful website for you. Another alternative is to make your website yourself.

If you decide to make it yourself here are a couple of things that you should keep in mind in terms of how you do it.

Firstly, there are a number of places wherer you can get templates or website building software. Google has an option as does Wordpress. You can do a Google search to find something suitable.

Once you have selected your software you will need to pick a theme. There are generally lots of themes available but before you decide to make one yours you should make sure that none of your competitors are using the same one.

When you have your theme you can start working with your photo's. Make sure that they are saved in a website compatible size and format. Remember, the internet is extremely visible so how you present your photos is extremely important.

Once you have your images you need to think about how you will present your text. You need to make it read well for a human being but also ensure that Google can understand what you actually do. Make sure that fonts

Next is your onpage SEO. Do a bit of research into how onpage SEO works and make sure that you get all of your meta tags right as well as your alt tags and H1's.

When you have completed your website you will need to organise hosting and DNS hosting. Cheap is not necessarily best when it comes to hosting. Think about what how things will work if you need support or if you need someone to make or load backups etc.

Once your site is live you will probably need to think about getting some statistical data in terms of traffic, bounce rates and time spent on your website. A good option for these is to set up Google Analytics and Google Webmaster tools. Make sure that you do your research into how to set it up properly to get the most useful data.

If you do a bit of research and learn how to do the basics it can be a lot of fun to make your own website. It can also be quite time consuming while you are also trying to run a small business. If you don't have the time to devote to make it yourself why not give us a call at 123 2 Web to find out how we can help.

I think its a false economy to create your own website. Unless you are a skilled designer/developer you are going to have to spend weeks trying to work everything out.
