One of the most essential skills that you should master as a business owner is knowing how to create a website. In this day and age businesses are now going digital, and the traditional approach is now becoming obsolete. A digital business can be more profitable due to its wide outreach to serve customers.
To design a professional website is pretty quick and easy today. It requires little or no training, think drag and drop, no coding skills required. If you know how to build your website yourself, you’ll save a lot on web developers and designers. This will also allow you to be more creative with your business ideas, and you will understand how to change and put new things on your website without the need for a programmer.
With that being said, getting your business website up and running to reach a worldwide audience can cost you less than $100 annually. To create a beautiful website for your business on your own, please follow the step-by-step instructions below.
- Purchase a unique domain name (website address) for your business so that people can find your products and services. NameCheap or Godaddy are great platforms to search for your business name;
- Sign up and purchase hosting for your website from a hosting provider such as Bluehost or SiteGround. This gives your site’s files somewhere to be “physically” stored.
