  • Step 4 - Get the Website Built:

    If you're somewhat "intimidated" by the thought of having a website built, try not to be. It can happen much easier than you may think.

    You can basically take one of four approaches:

  • "I'm scared to death and have no money for it, and don't want to try."

  • "It's scary, but I'm willing to try to do it"

  • "I already have some experience with it and I'm OK"

  • "I just want to pay a professional company to build me a gorgeous website."

    I'm scared to death and have no money for it

    Well, at least you're honest!

    I'll be straight with you: You're choices are:

    a. Don't get a custom website. Market in ways where you don't need one (you can get pre-built web pages that are 100% ready-to-sell (see
    Clickbank or online storefronts).
    b. Face your fears of techie work and read my section about how to take a pre-built website template and edit it.
    c. Save up the money and pay a company to do it down the road.

    I'm willing to try

    If you have a paid website host or a
    free host, you basically have an empty space that is waiting for a website. If you want to build it yourself you could use a template (pre-selected and working website frames, buttons, and color scheme).

    Many templates are sold, but I found a great website that gives them out for free. My website, LowRiskIncomes.com, was built from a free template from them. You can see that its not all that fancy, but it gets the job done.

    With a template, all you do is download it to your harddrive and unzip it to a folder. Then you upload it to your website area using a simple FTP client software like WS_FTP (hint: I use it as a "student"). If you need help with this the technical support dept. of your host can help you with this. You will then have the working "skeleton" of a website. All you have to do then is label the button options with text, create your hyperlinks (the html command "a href="http://www.THELINK"), and fill in your own words and content. You may be surprised as to how easy this is.

    Here are some more do-it-yourself tips:
  • Most of the websites you visit have code that is copyable. Right-click your mouse and click View Source as an example. You can then see this pages code and use the html commands as examples for how to do things (I don't mind). Cutting (Ctrl-C) and Pasting (Ctrl-V) is the bread-and-butter of doing anything on the Internet!
  • Graphics can be also copied from other pages by right-clicking and choosing Save Picture As.
  • If you need free tools and free help with things, there are several sites that do this. My favorite is TheFreeSite.com. You may also want to visit The Animation Factory - Several thousand FREE Animations, web graphics and clipart items.

    I have some experience

    If you're comfortable working with web pages and HTML, then you probably don't need me. Good luck! Otherwise, the section above may assist you.
