In this article, I would like to show you how to build a WordPress website from scratch in under a minute, even if you’ve never done it before!
Building a website has never been easier than it is now.
Gone are the days when you needed knowledge of HTML programming and had to manually code everything – a slow, painful process that would take several days or cost a small fortune if you had to hire an expert to do it for you.
All the old technological barriers have been completely broken down with the coming of Content Management Systems such as WordPress, the most widely used CMS in the World today.
This website is the first one I ever built. Previously, my online IT skills amounted to little more than creating documents and attaching them into e-mails!
And yet I had this site up and running in no time. In fact, the hardest part was thinking what to write in my posts!
FIVE MUST HAVE FEATURES OF A WEBSITE
You have a website, which is effectively your ‘online presence’ and then you have ‘hosting’ which is the place where your website is stored and from where your viewers access it. I believe there at 5 things that make a key critical difference between a quality website and one that is lacking.
- Appearance – First impressions count
- Speed and time to load – people want the information quickly
- Navigation – well laid out and easy for Visitors to find what they’re looking for
- Content Management System (CMS) for ease of build and maintenance
- Quality content – engage your visitors interest
If you can achieve these 5 things, your website will become very profitable and this will be far quicker if you are using a ‘turn key’ system such as WordPress which simplifies the whole process and can take less than a minute to build your website.
WordPress is the system we use here at Wealthy Affiliate and features around 2000 different templates and over 10,000 ‘add on’ features for website functionality.
We will provide you with not one – but TWO – custom built websites with extras!
