Let me start by offering you a warm welcome to Website Builder Wars.
My name’s Lee and this is my little piece of the internet that I like to call home.
Think of this getting started page as your personal base. A place where you can come to help navigate around the site and find exactly what is is you’re looking for.
If you ever get lost or need a hand with anything, just come back here and browse the links to beginner guides and most popular content which you’ll find towards the bottom of the page.
If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, simply ask away in the comments section below and I’ll do my level best to help you out.
Now, I know we’ve only just met, but I’m going to go ahead and make an assumption about you if I may?
Unless you’re like me and enjoy spending your free time tinkering about with site builders, (which I highly doubt), then you probably see a website as nothing more than a tool to help you promote your business or showcase your work online.
If that’s the case, then the last thing you want to be doing is spending hours hopping around the internet trying to figure out this “website stuff” when you could be with your family and friends instead.
With that in mind, you have two options;
Option 1: Hire Someone To Do It For You
There’re plenty of web designers out there that’ll jump at the chance of helping you get your site up and running.
Just know, you’ll have to pay an upfront cost for the website itself, a monthly fee for maintenance, and not forgetting the ongoing marketing costs if you’ve any hope of getting your website found in the search engines such as Google.
Finding someone who really knows what they’re doing at a reasonable price is a different story altogether.
Option 2: The DIY Approach
You can avoid these costs, maintain control, and produce the same results as many professionals out there if you can afford to invest the time to do it yourself.
If this is the route you wish to explore, then I can help you choose the right website builder for your needs and show you where to focus your efforts to create a successful website with as few headaches as possible.
To Help You Decide, I’d Like To Clear Up One of The Most Common Misconceptions That I Hear On a Regular Basis
Building a website is too complicated
Whoa….2005 just called and want that sentence back!
Here in 2018, website building platforms such as Wix, and Weebly have removed most of the techie stuff and allow you to create a professional looking website yourself with relative ease.
In fact, you could have the foundation of your website live on the internet by the end of the day.
My Promise To You
The information I provide throughout this site will be kept as up to date as humanly possible and I’ll show you the best, most cost-effective ways to launch and maintain your site.
I’ve also personally tested any of the website platforms, tools, or training that I review on this site.
You’ll find that most offer a free option or at the very least have a free trial so you can test them out before deciding to commit.
In fact, I always recommend you try out at least two or three website builders to see which one best suits you best.
Nowhere on this site will you hear me say this stuff is easy
Yeah sure, even the most tech-challenged of you can have a website live on the internet in just a few minutes these days, but that’s really just the beginning.
Truth is, to build a good looking site, one that not only attracts visitors but also helps convert them into customers will take time and effort on your part.
And as with anything in life, there’s a learning curve involved.
I’m not trying to put you off the idea, on the contrary.
I just want to set your expectations correctly as to what it’s going to take if you’re serious about taking the DIY approach.
So, Where Do We Go From Here?
Well, my brand new digital friend, that’s entirely up to you.
