It’s a rarity to meet someone who does not use the web for business.  Whether he is supplying, selling or buying, the internet serves as a huge portal for him.  Before anyone would do business with anyone else, it is the practice that they do a research on the other entity via the web.  So you can see here the importance of having a website.

See here the advantages of putting up a website and having presence online:

  • you will be available to the world 24×7
  • you can use your website to educate your clients
  • a website is a good marketing tool that cost low
  • your clients can give you feedback thru your website

  • a good website can also build you a good reputation

The list of advantages can go longer than this.  You obviously are missing a lot if you don’t have a website yet.  So here are some quick and easy steps for you to follow to build a better website:

1.      Decide on what web hosting provider to use

The first thing to decide on is your choice of web hosting provider.  You can go for free web hosting options that are offered in the net.  Or you may want the professional services of standard web hosting, shared hosting, or co-location.

2.      Choose and register a domain name

You don’t really need a domain name if you’re going to build a website.  But registering for a domain name will give your site better identity as more people can remember it  and it can be searchable.

3.      Start creating your website

Next step is to plan the look and content of your website.  What type will it be?  Will it be information, product or resource type?  And how will the navigation go from one page to the next?  First you must map out the outline or content of each page.  Then decide if you will hire a web designer to do the HTML coding or if you will make do with free templates on the net.

4.      Publish your website

You are now ready to publish your website.  Let the world know about it by posting links and comments on blogs, networking sites and in other people’s sites.  You may also go the route of paying for banner ads and paid links.

5.      Maintain and update your website regularly

The best website, and those that get more visits, are those that are updated regularly.  Refresh your content frequently.  Have a blog or chat going to ensure you get fresh content every time.

Be sure to take the steps above with great attention to detail and soon you’ll have a website that people will start to flock to.
