So you want to know how to create a website for free? That’s not a problem! And as we go on I’ll even show you how to create that website in 30 seconds ! Don’t believe me. Keep reading, and I’ll share some secrets that were taught to me and by the end you too can create your very own website for free, in 30 seconds!
So many uses for a website !
In this day and time it’s hard to think of doing business, or any other information based activity without having a website! Churches, schools, civic groups, marketers and many online business men and women have websites as a home base for what they do! So if you need a website, you need to get one set up!
If you are building a business online a website is an imperative ! Most of your activities will be geared towards getting people/ traffic to your website for content offers, etc.
Web designers can get paid a pretty penny to set up, design and host a website! In fact with the myriad of hosting systems out there, it’s hard to wrap my head around how they are all doing pretty good ! Some are doing better than others, but all are profitable. And that trend isn’t going anywhere!
Every time a new format comes out, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or You Tube, I keep waiting for them to fold, but they seldom do. With over3 billion people on line these days the call for a website is greater than ever and it will only become more so !
Still don’t think you can build a website in 30 Minutes?
WordPress which is the #1 website format ha grown and went through updates and become easier and easier over the years! Not long ago you had to be able to write code in HTML to build a website. Now they are very simple and even use drag and drop builders ! Who would’ve thought that just 10 years ago?
When I got into Affiliate marketing as my work from home online business, I found a training and community platform where they taught website creation and online business training, because I desperately wanted to learn how to create a work at home passive income ! And I wanted to learn it for free. This same platform is the one that taught me to build websites in 30 seconds.
How to create a WordPress website in 30 seconds
Making Your new website look great!
Once your website is built, you can make changes in color graphics and a myriad of other choices! You can personalize your website to fit you and your purpose very easily!
The use of images is important as many people are visual consumers of content. The right amount of images and video on your website is very helpful in keeping the interest of the reader! When you use images you need to make sure you’re using them legally, and optimizing them so they’re working for you, not against you. A lot of people assume if they find an image on the internet it’s free to use. That isn’t the case. But there are many websites where you can find Royalty free images that you can use that have no copy write. Two of my favorites are Pixabay.com and pixels.com .
WordPress Themes to suit your purpose
There are literally thousands of free wordpress themes to choose from, or you can purchase a theme. I really like the Admiral theme that is free within wordpress. But XTheme is one of my favorites in the paid category. While many paid themes are set up where you buy it once and use it many times, X Theme is $69 and can only be used once. So if you plan on building multiple websites, you have to pay $69 each time.
But if you wish to stay on the free theme side of the street there are many themes that will suit your purposes, and to be quite honest, the content, images and other plug ins and such can make for a beautiful website that functions just fine!
A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. But choose plugins after researching how well they perform their intended use, and don’t run too many plugins. Some plugins can cause issues like slowing down your website load speed.
There are plugins for search engine optimization (SEO), growing your e-mail list, speed up load times for your blog. Blocking spam comments and much more.
The plugins that are right for one person and application might not be right for another person and application, so you should research the plugins you plan to use and choose accordingly.
Monetize your website
There are many ways to monetize your website. The most common is by signing up for a Google Adsense account and placing Google adsense adds on your website. Google pays you for others viewing and clicking on advertisements. Adsense is not a high paying strategy and should be used alongside another form of magnetization.
Affiliate links are another very good way to monetize a blog/ website. By joining an affiliate program like Amazon or Click bank you can insert affiliate links to products on a given site. When others visit your site and click an affiliate link, they are taken to that product on the host site. If that person makes a purchase, you get a commission.
There are many affiliate programs and it is suggested that you search for the program to find the right one for products that are relevant to your blog subject. Just Google search “Golf affiliate programs” if your site is about golf etc. It’s very easy to get started with affiliate marketing, and a great way to make passive income, but there are many ways to improve your efforts and become better at it with a mentor who knows the ropes.
We’ve gone over how to build a website in 30 seconds or fewer and included a video demonstration to follow along! Choose a theme based on the criteria you are after. If you want a responsive website that is highly customizable, use a theme that fits. Maybe you will want a paid theme. The choice is yours. If you aren’t happy with the theme you have chosen, you can toggle your site back and forth through multiple themes to find one that s right for you.
Build out your website with relevant and amazing content and you’re on your way! Choose the colors you want in the customize section withing wordpress, use legal images and optimize the size. Then add plugins that optimize your site within your needs. And don’t forget to have fun along the way !
