How to Build a Website

How to Build a Website

December 13, 2018

There is no better time than the present to start an On-line business. The key to building a successful online business is building a website that converts visitors into paying customers. One major question is whether you want to build the website yourself or hire a company or freelancer to build the website for you. I have done both and I highly recommend building your own website.

Here the top 10 reasons why I suggest that you build your own website for your online boutique: 

  1. Nobody knows your business like you.
  2. Nobody knows your customers better than you.
  3. You will have control over the content on your website.
  4. You do not have to rely on outside help to make changes.
  5. You do not have to be a technology expert to do it.
  6. You will save thousands of dollars on development fees.
  7. You can add and delete products easily.
  8. You can create a custom look by adding the features you want.
  9. You don't have to know HTML.
  10. You don't have to be a web developer to build a website.

If you want to build your own website you need to choose a platform and not all platforms are created the same. Let me save you a couple of headaches and tell you which one to choose.....Shopify!

Shopify is by far the best and easiest way to create an E-commerce website without all the headaches. They are all in one solution for busy entrepreneurs who want to build beautiful websites and have a hosting option all in one.  

First, you want to start your Free 2 Week Trial, during this time you can create your website and launch it when you are ready. 

 

 

Once you start your free trial you can get started! You can choose from one of over a hundred themes, both free and paid for your store. Think of the theme as the "look and design" of your overall store. This includes your homepage, products, and pages. You can even search for themes based on what type of business you own and what type of products you are selling. The options are endless and the end product is professional and easily adaptable to the needs of any business.

Once you pick a theme you can install the theme and customize it with your branding, colors, and logo to make it your own. Then start to add your products and manage your inventory right in Shopify.
