Creating a Free Website to Showcase My Cupcake Business

Creating a Free Website to Showcase My Cupcake Business

Creating a Free Website to Showcase My Cupcake Business

Is this how I go about creating a free website so I can showcase my cupcake business on the internet? I know that having a website is very important these days so potential clients can check out your work before placing an order.

I work out of my house for now but I have been looking for commercial space since my cupcake business (happily) is growing by leaps and bounds.

I'd like to create a website so I can showcase my cupcakes. I plan on having a lot of pictures of all the different designs and displays I do for clients. At some point in the future I would also like the ability to take orders online.

Is it possible to accomplish all of this on a website? Is this something I can do myself?

I don't have the money right now to invest in a professional website but I would like to get started building my brand. I really think that a website these days is a MUST for any business no matter how big or small (like mine).

If it is really this easy to build a website, I know that I can do it myself.

Geesh, is there all there is to it? It's really just typing into a box!

So, should I go with a free website builder or would you recommend that I spend some money and purchase a professional service. I'd love to know what you think.

Creating a Free Website
by: Sue

Hi Gretchen,

What a beautiful picture! You should be on that TV show, "Cupcake Wars!"

Now about creating a website to showcase your growing business. . .

Yes, of course you can create a free website. However, there will be many limitations and very few features. If you simply want to build a website that is a few pages, and more like an online business card, then using a free website builder is definitely the way to go.

However, if you want to build many web pages featuring different categories of cupcakes along with beautiful big graphics then you will need a web hosting services that allows you unlimited server space. (Graphics use up TONS of space!)

As you explore website building and hosting services you want to focus on the "FEATURES" that you are included in the hosting fee. (Obviously, you want to get the most features and unlimited access for the best price.)

Here is a web page that reviews the features offered by site building and hosting companies so help you get started assessing what will make the most sense for you:

Thank You All!
I started this website a few years ago as a labor of love to help others learn how to build their own web business.
(Knowing that if I could, it would be a piece of cake for everyone else on the planet!)

Your feedback and success stories are a constant source of inspiration for me!

A HUGE thanks to the "SBI!" software that made it possible for even an "e"dummy like me learn how to build a website that's now profitable internet business.

Please keep your comments, feedback and questions coming!
I love hearing from you. . .
