Marketing Online by Weeb Tutorials .com
Building A FREE Website
Marketing Online is not just for the internet Guru’s or Companies that can afford to spend money having another company build and design a website for them.
You can set up your own website very quickly and easily and you can start it simply and easily at no cost to you.
At Weeb we suggest using WordPress as it favours highly with Google and also because its simple to understand and easy to follow.
You can find it by typing wordpress.com in your browser or by simply typing wordpress.com into google
If you already have a website host, for example hostgator and go-daddy, it is a good idea to set up a sub domain and install a wordpress blog in there, hostgator and go-daddy both have an excellent customer service department that will help you do this and often will virtually do it for you.
Ok – so to start just go to wordpress.com
click on create website
The first page it sends you to will ask you for your email address, wordpress will check your email and then give it a green tick to let you know it has found it.
Next come up with a user name, choose something that you will easily remember or make sure you write it down so you do not forget it. (You can use your name here), we used “simpleeasymarketing”.
In the next box you will notice wordpress has already put your email address typed into the blog name box.
You can simply delete this and choose your own blog title
Here you can Come up with a unique blog url that will help readers find you!
It is a good idea to prepare a list of potential website address (url) names in case your first choice is already taken.
Bloggers, sole traders and affiliate marketers usually promote their own name in the url, however you may wish to choose a title related to your company or choose an acronym based on your company.
You should be aware that all free WordPress.com websites have “wordpress.com” in the url, directly after your “chosen” website address name.
Example: http://simpleeasymarketing.wordpress.com (Note: it is possible to buy your way around this, using your own web host such as hostgator.com or have wordpress register a domain name for you – but we are presently discussing ways to do this for free).
Fill in your chosen title and choose, no thanks I’ll use the free address, wordpress will not mind and are happy for you to use the free address.
WordPress will ask you to think about upgrading, again this is not necessary, the free account is ample for your needs.
choose the free blog and click on create blog
wordpress will take you to their first page, it is called step 1
You can leave the blog title and language as it is.
You can type in the box named tagline just a few words about your website
