So You Want To Build A Website! Now What?

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

You want to build a website, but not just any website. You want your website to have all the pizazz you see other websites have, such as flashy videos, high-quality graphics, smooth transitions from one section to the next. You love the colors, content, font, style that other sites have, and you are asking yourself, "How can I get that look too?"

Building a website can be confusing, frustrating, and leave you feeling overwhelmed?

It's not nearly as hard as it can seem if we break it down into sections. Over the next few weeks, we will explore how building a website can be as easy as it is for you to read this blog. We'll start with choosing what subject your website will focus on. Is it a personal site? Or is it a business website? We'll navigate through choosing your domain name and hosting provider. Will we talk about logo's and do you need one? We will talk about the pros and cons of creating one yourself or purchasing a ready-made one. Colors and Fonts? Yes, we will cover those too. When do you start thinking about the content you will be using to populate your space on the world wide web? When do you plan how your website looks and feels? We'll navigate copyright, giving credit for works that aren't your own. We'll even go through the actual building process and how you know when it's time to seek professional help.

Sounds like a lot, right? not to worry!

We will work through this over the next few weeks and break it down into smaller sections. You can work on planning your site a little at a time, and before you know it, you will have built your blueprint for your website and will be ready to make it.

Are you ready to get started? I'm glad to hear it. The first step for creating your space on the world wide web is to decide whether this will be for personal or business purposes?

If your website is for personal use, what subject do you want to cover? Maybe you're a music fan and want to share your love of music with the world. You're a crafter and want to share your recipes or patterns with others. Perhaps you're a proud Mom and want to share your family story with the world. You play sports and want to help others get involved.

These are all great options and do not begin to scratch the surface of what your website could offer. Take time to think about what you want to share. There's no rush; the world wide web won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

If your website will be for business purposes, that's great too! What does your business offer? Will it offer consults? E-commerce? Is shipping a part of your business? Is it for informational purposes only? What results do you want your website to provide? These are all things that you will need to consider.

Take some time to think about your website presence creatively. Jot down your ideas and come back to them often. Once you've decided what type of website you want to have, you're ready to move to the next step, securing Your domain name & hosting provider.
