So, You Want Your Own Website?

Many people are moving their business’s online to keep costs down.  Others are thinking about it, but have no idea where to start.  The first thing you need is an idea and a good graphic designer(this is where I come in!) that “gets” what you need.  If you can’t communicate with them, then you probably won’t end up with the look you were going for.

Next you’ll need to decide what kind of site you want to have.  A Wordpress powered site or a Traditional website?  If you chose a Wordpress site there are plenty of themes that you can purchase and have customized.  If you decide to go the traditional route on your website you’ll need to build it from scratch or start with a template and customize it to be what you need.

I have come across several programs that help you design and customize website templates.  One such program is called WebStudio.  WebStudio website builder is  an online application, that’s pretty awesome…nothing to download!  A program like this allows you to create a website or to build an online store just by using your browser.  They have affordable packages that include all of the tools you need to create a website or build an online store, including an integrated shopping cart system!  I did notice the site offers a 10 day free trial as well.  You can customize the layout, colors, fonts, etc!

Have fun!
