Intimidated by the Thought of Having to Create Your Own Website? Fear No More!

Okay, great!

You have a business. Or you’re hoping to start one.

Good idea!

By the way, maybe you’ve already thought of this, but if you haven’t decided on building your presence on the web, you’re really going to lose out.

Why you need your own website or blog:

Maybe you know this already, but here is what having your own website can do for you:

1. It will create brand awareness amongst prospective clients.
2. It will create trust.
3. It will broaden your marketing reach. (Think worldwide!)
4. It will allow you to sell your product without you having to be physically present.
5. It is your ready-made presentation and ‘face’ to the world and gives you an opportunity to showcase your product.
6. You get to have your own domain-based email IDs, which lends more credence to your business, and helps brand you better.
7. It helps you to avoid having to explain things over and over again to people. Just refer them to your site.

By the way, even if you don’t plan on having a business, it’s still a great idea to have a blog of your own. Blogging is one of the biggest crazes, and as a person, you certainly have something to offer others. Think about various fields of experience that you may have had, and you can already think of not one, but several blogs on various topics.

Blogging is not only fun; it gets people to know you better and connect with you. And get this! Over time, it can establish you as an authority on your field of expertise, and if you provide value and regular updates on your blog, people will keep coming back over and over to your blog to get new information.

And another motivating ( :-) ) reason for a blog that we ought to mention is that, as over time you build your blog following, you can easily monetize your site by signing up for Google Adsense, Kontera, or other ad services, who will put relevant ads on your blog or website, and then when visitors click on them, you earn revenue.

Maybe you can think of a lot more reasons than these, but these are some of the immediate ones that came to mind.

Okay, so you agree. That’s wonderful!

You already knew that? Even better!

Next step: how do you go about getting your website started?

Maybe the thought of this totally chickens you out and you figure – “Forget it! I’m just a newbie at this, and I can’t do it. It’s too difficult, and I can’t understand or comprehend HTML. That’s it! I’m going to have to spend thousands of dollars to get my website designed and set up by some professional!”

Hold it right there! Yes, you could do that. But, that’s no fun!
We’re going to show you how easy it is to produce a great website, get yourself indexed by the search engines, get top rankings – without too much techno-babble!

Okay, okay, we confess. There will be a little of that ‘techno’ stuff. But minimal, we promise. It will be easier than you think.

You game?

So how will you learn? And who will teach you?

Okay, don’t worry, that’s what we set out to do here, so we will keep our word and do that.

But before your do that, you need to get yourself a Paypal account, if you don’t have one already. (If you already have a Paypal account, skip ahead to the paragraph after the next one to go to register your domain).

Paypal is one of the most popular, secure ways of making payments online. Getting a Paypal account is free. Just click on the banner below to get yourself a Paypal account right now, and then you can come back here (do bookmark this page, by the way, or you might lose your place):

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

Okay, if you’ve done that, or already have a Paypal account, you can proceed to the next step.

Another option that you will need is Alertpay. This is different from Paypal, and is also a great way to make your online payments. Some sites only have Alertpay as a payment option, so it’s good to go ahead and get that as well while you are at it:

Good! Now that you’re done with that, go here to start your first step: How to Choose a Domain.
