Here's how: you can create your own professional website for $15 a month...

I have a solution for you...
What if you built your own super fast website using a drag-&-drop builder that works on Laptops, Tablets and Mobile Phones?

With a drag-&-drop builder, you or your team could amend your site many times over with no development costs leaving you a bigger marketing budget to drive traffic to your new website.

But How?...

How Can I Create My Own Website Considerations

Domain Name

Your domain name is the website name that brands your business, keep it simple for people to remember.

Performance

Slow website hosting is a pain for your visitors, after using many hosting companies, I would recommend Site Ground for great affordability vs performance, backups and security.

Security

Get a free account with CloudFlare.com, this gives you a free SSL certificate & blocks a host of cyber attacks keeping your website safe.

Customer Flow

Each visitor to your website is looking for something, know their flow e.g. Floor company > designs and styles > is the price within budget > testimonials > contact or sales page. What’s your flow?

More Considerations

List Building

While build build social media followings to share our products or services, if that channel blocks your account because of a complaint. You have lost potential customers. Get them onto your email list and email weekly tips to build relationships.

Conversion Tracking

Once your site has been live, use Google Analytics and Google Search Consol to see what content is working and what content is not, bin what’s not and do more of what is.

SEO

Your home page is for people who know you, your blogs are where new visitors find you in Google, write blogs that get found and leave visitors wanting more so they click you in Google search, but still use a main key-phrase on your homepage e.g. “how much does a small business website cost”.

Social Media

Social media – write content into a social media library that auto posts 6 months of your content over and over giving you more time to respond to comments and use your profile link to drive traffic to your email list or website.
