Step-By-Step On How To Build Your Own Website For Free

Hi, my name is Frank and I help businesses like yours get on the first page of the search engines.

Very nice to meet you! Let’s get you up and running with a cool website! There are 3 things you’ll need to start – a domain name, a hosting company, and a design.

Domain Name | Website Hosting | Website Design |    

Domain Name

DOMAIN NAME

Do you have a domain name in mind? You might want to search for a great domain name using keyword analytics.

Choosing the right domain name can be a pretty easy task. If you have a business name, try using that. If you have a primary product, then use that. If you have a general service or product, try to find a domain that explains what you do.

When choosing a domain, it is useful to use a specialty website such as Namechk.com to simultaneously search the social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Pinterest, etc.) for a name that is also available in social media.

How To Fix Your Own Website Like A Professional

Hi, my name is Frank and I help businesses like yours get on the first page of the search engines.

Would you like to be able to fix your own website? I would like to teach you everything I know on how to go about getting the most traffic coming to your own website. The best traffic is traffic coming from those people interested in your business. Not just any business. Yours!

Why would someone be interested in your business over the next one? Is it because you are trustworthy? Did you take the time to answer any questions they might have about you and your company? Do they know who you are, what you do, and what you will do for them?

First, you have to have done your homework and researched the needs of your customers. What is most important to them? What value can you add that no one else can? Your business is unique. You are running it and provide value beyond just the products and services you offer.

You need to let your customers know what they can get from your business, where they can get it, who they should talk with, and anything else that’s special about your business.
