Steps for Building a Website
by: Sue

YUM! Once you build your website and grow your business, you just might be the next Ace of Cakes!

You are absolutely right. Any business these days really needs a presence on the internet to build credibility and provide opportunities to market your business.

Your next step is to identify a web host so you can start building your website.

Consider what you want your domain name but don't buy it yet! You can usually save yourself that yearly expense. Many hosting companies include the price of the domain name in their monthly fee.

To begin researching hosting companies, check out the "Host It" page to read about the features you will need and printout the comparison chart.

For most small businesses you will want to consider choosing a hosting service that includes a blog so you can keep customers up to date on what's new with your business.

An automated newsletter is also important so that you can easily collect customer's email addresses in order to send out notifications of special deals, coupons, and such.

It's also nice to have a form function so that customers can place orders.

I would expect that you will need a host that allows for a lot of storage for graphic to showcase pictures of your beautiful cakes.

I can tell you that I absolutely love the web hosting service that I use. Site-Build-It includes everything anyone could possible want in their monthly hosting price. Even with all the features they have the monthly price is only $29.

The web page building templates they provide are quite simple to use. If you have ever purchased anything online and filled out an order form, building a web page with SBI is kind of like that.

Finally, even after all these years of building websites, I still find this step-by-step guide very helpful: Step-By-Step Site Building Guide. It's free. It might make your head hurt a bit at first but take your time digesting all the information.

I hope this information is helpful! Site building is really a lot of fun and it is truly exciting when your website starts to produce results.

If you are in a time crunch and want to get your site launched right away here are a selection of web site services from the "build my site for me" to one-on-one site building consultation.

I wish you the very best of luck!


P.S. If you happen to choose SBI as your web host, if your make your purchase through this site, I have a special offer for a site review that you might find helpful. The details are right here: Free Website Analysis.

P.S. (Again) When you get your website launched, I'd love it if you came back and posted a link so we can check out your cakes :-)

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. . .
