Find out everything you need to know about running a home based internet business from an internet insider. Sounds like the start of a hype filled marketing sales letter, but the information I give you here will not cost you a penny.
The internet is made up of millions of websites, each site has been created by someone, the term to describe these people are webmasters. This is a quite a broad term and can encompass someone who has made their first site with the help of some software that helps automate the process. All the way to a webmaster who understands the coding behind creating pages on the internet.
The important thing is that you will at some point need a website. You can still earn money and work online without a site but most people will need to create their own website. I would recommend that you create your own site so you get to learn how the whole process works. This understanding will help you in the future when you come to buying or selling a site or indeed changing and updating your own sites.
So why do you need a website. You should think of a website as your shop front on the internet although it will appear and act more like an online magazine. Even though you may not necessarily be selling anything directly you need a way to get your sales message to the public.
Your site will be your opportunity to convince others to buy the products or services you are promoting. You can place your own adverts on your site or you can even sell your advertising space to others. Either way it is your real estate or virtual slice on the internet.
Creating the website itself is your first challenge. A site is made up of two parts, the design which incorporates the layout, colour scheme and physical look of the website and the content which is the text and articles you will be writing. Out of those two the most important is the content, there is no point in spending time making a site look pretty if no one is going to see it so you need content.
Fortunately setting up a site is much easier these days, you no longer have to start from scratch. There is software available that can manage the design for you so you just need to create the content. Probably the most popular amongst webmasters right now is WordPress as it does most of the hard technical work for you.
The term website covers lots of different types of sites, the generic website which is similar to the one you are reading right now and blogs. Blogs are like ordinary sites but tend to have a particular layout style and content is organised using dates much like a diary. You can however use software or content management software such as WordPress to create what are known as static sites, again much like this site.
My advice would be to start of using WordPress for the simple fact that it is relatively easy to use and is freely available at no cost to you. You will find that it can be easily set up through your web host which is what we will cover later. Whilst the website will be the visible shop front people will see you will also need a host to provide you with web space to locate your website on. You will also need what is called a domain name, this is like your shop name and allows your site to be visible to the world.
