Set Up Your Website in Minutes - For Free
There was a time not long ago when setting up a website meant endless technical jargons, hiring a web designer, writing the html or jawa codes, selecting the right hosting platform and deciding on the band width.
Now setting up a website is like 1..2..3.. and you are online. You don't need to a technical geek anymore. Let me teach you how to do it. And right now.
You can be online in minutes. Without spending a dime.
O.K. Let us start.
The first thing you need to decide is the subject of your website. Decide on a specialized area or a narrow theme. Do not make it a very general website. A niche site has better chance of being found by people with specific keyword search. You can start a site to share your specialized knowledge or special products or just give free information in the area of your specialization to establish yourself as an authority.
Once you have decided on the subject of your site give it a name targeted to convey your subject. If you are a training consultant, your website should be named training.com. You can make it more focused. If you specialize in communication training you can name your site commmunicationtraining or commiunication-training.
Having decided on the most important aspect of deciding on a name, now we can proceed to the next step. That of actually setting up the site.
