WEBSITES, DOMAINS & HOSTING
Before you can start selling your products and services online you will need a URL or domain to send visitors. I buy my domains, hosting and how I build my websites via GoDaddy.
GoDaddy’s Website Builder (https://www.godaddy.com/websites/website-builder) is a website building wizard! I build my websites using the WordPress platform. Learn step by step How To Build a Website with GoDaddy with this TUTORIAL.
If you want a more functional theme and additional plugin options, you might want to consider buying and installing a website theme (template) on your website. They are fairly cheap and easily customizable. I use Envato Market’s Themeforest to find mine.
If you need help setting you your website or graphic design, then I’d suggest hiring some help. You can use Fiverr or Upwork to find a website designer. These are great ways to outsource installation and setup.
Before you get started What are the Top 3 Things To Include On Your Website?
ONE PAGE WEBSITES & LANDING PAGES
Not ready for a website? What if I can show you how to make one with just “one page?” Create a ONE PAGE WEBSITE to get started. Leadpages (https://www.leadpages.net/) are better known as "landing pages, one page websites or lead capture pages”. You can create single product sales pages with these as well.
WHAT IF MY NAME IS TAKEN?
Curious to know if someone else is already using your name online? Run a Google search Inquiry for "Business Name Checker” Find a service to help you run an all in one search to see if someone is using your domain, as well as, all available social handles. NameChk (https://namechk.com/) and Name Checkr (https://www.namecheckr.com/) are two of my favorites.
If you need ideas, or your domain is already being used you can find variations of your domain and what’s available you can use Lean Domain Search (https://www.leandomainsearch.com/)
