The success of any internet based business lies in the front-end website. Websites selling products call it the sales page and people running an online store call it the store-front and yet others simply call it a website.
Are you wondering how to build your website like a professional?
If you are new to the internet and is currently in the preparations to launch your internet marketing business, you would surely be scratching your head out of the confusion of getting your website designed. Exhorbitant website designer quotations and difficult to understand HTML codes – your internet marketing business just looks like dying even before it has started.
You are not the only one faced with situation. Every newbie internet marketer, fascinated with the rags-to-riches stories of other successful internet marketers and bloggers set out on a plan to make money and stumble upon the same situation that you are in. Though I never had to face this situation, because I knew a fair bit of HTML to design my website, I sometimes still feel the need to get off with this website designing activity and concentrate on my business.
Web designing options:-
This situation could be a tricky one and you might need to properly and accurately assess your need well, before deciding on what kind of a website or, a website design you should go for.
Some easily available options are as follows:
CMS Platforms – There are a lot of Content Management Solutions available these days and these are pretty easy to install and use. WordPress is one such publishing platform and the easiest of all. You need not know any HTML code if you plan to install WordPress. WordPress installations can be used for blogs as well as static websites. You have the option of setting these preferences in the administration panel of WordPress.
There are other such solutions like Jhoomla, Drupal and such other but these require some knowledge about HTML or, else you could find yourself browsing through websites and search engines to find solutions to problems that you face while installations.
WYSIWSG Site building options – These options are mostly offered by hosting companies. One such easiest site builder is called as Website Builder and is normally offered by Godaddy and their resellers. WYSIWYG means “What You See Is What You Get”. It is a simple click and drag way of building a site.
The drawback about these sites is the fact that there are type-casted. There are a specific number of designs that are available and you choose one of them. So you loose your uniqueness and identity to many other such similar websites.
Site Build It – This is one the best and most recommended options. People who are absolute newbies can also build professional looking and elegant websites with ‘Site Build It’.
‘Site Build It‘ is not a website designing service, instead it is a complete internet business package. You will not have to run after hosting companies to find the best host for you, nor will you have to run after designers to build a site for you within your budget and timeline. ‘Site Build It‘ is a package that offers you all of this and in addition to this, also ensures that you have a website that works.
I have helped a lot of my friends start their first internet marketing business with the help of ‘Site Build It‘. Hence I know this is a package that not only promises results but also delivers.
Custom designs at Chromaa Solutions – Chromaa Solutions is a company that I am a partner of and we are into website designing, logo designing, Search Engine Optimization etc.
In case you wish to get a custom design done for your website, I can offer you a custom designed 5 pager static website for only $199.00.
Whatever the option that you choose, you should align it with your goals. If your decision is to start a blog and you are lost in the world of Drupal or, Jhoomla (assuming that you have little or, no knowledge about HTML), then your start-up is going to be an absolute failure. So your decision should be based on factors like your budget, the website’s objective, you preferances in designs etc.
