Now you have your website live, you are ready to customise the site to look just how you want it. However, before you start watching the second video which shows you how to do this, there’s something I need you to do first…
In order to customise the site’s appearance to look how you want it, you need to get a professional looking theme on the website. Luckily with WordPress being such a popular website content management system, there are thousands of professional themes to pick from. To save you the trouble of scouring the net to find a reliable one, I’ve done the hard work for you! If you click here, you will be taken to the Studio Press website. They make some of the most popular and professional looking themes online, and best of all, each theme is built on their unique Genesis framework. So before watching my video below showing you how to install your new theme, head over to the Studio Press site now and have a browse through their themes until you see one that you like and download it so we can get on with making your site look a million dollars!
Got your Studio Press theme? Great! Now you can click play on the video below and learn exactly how to install and customise your brand new theme, as well as add new content to your website! So go ahead, press play, and remember to read the rest of this page once the video is finished…
Ok, now you’ve watched the video and have your sexy new theme installed on your website, it’s time to look in to adding content to the site. The more good content you have on your website the better. The reason for this is that the more engaging content you have on your site, the more likely it is that your content will be shared by people and linked to by other websites. This is how your site ends up ranking in the search engines for your targeted keywords, and then in turn you get lots of targeted visitors to your site.
If I need good content created for any of my websites I use these guys. They write professional articles and reviews for a very fair price. All the writers are English born and you really will struggle to find better value anywhere else online. Click here to check them out.
Once you have your engaging content on your site and have visitors coming, you want to keep those visitors coming back, especially if your website is a business website! The easiest way to do this is to install an email opt in form to your website so you can capture the name and email address of each user. You may have noticed I have this on my site here too. This is the perfect way to turn one time customers/readers in to returning customers/readers. Aweber is by far the biggest and best provider of these services, and their interface is very simple to use. Installing it on your site couldn’t be easier either, check out their site by clicking here for for info.
Finally, I’ve now got to the most important part of this tutorial BY FAR! You should now have your own live, custom website that is packed with unique content and an opt in form! All that you need now is visitors!
There are literally hundreds of ways to get visitors to your website, and to be honest I could write thousands of words on each one of these methods. In fact, I’ve already started to do so!
