Coding, programming, and other computer science alien languages. Those are the first things that usually comes to mind when you think about creating your own website. Yes, you do need a bit of coding and programming and web developing skills. However, it’s actually not that hard. A lot of host domains nowadays provide simple ways for you to create your own website, with plugins and widgets and all, without having to know how to code at all!
Here’s what you’ll need to do to create a successful website.
Get A Host Domain
The first thing to do is get a host domain. There are plenty of hosts you can choose from, but the most popular is WordPress hosting because it is the easiest to navigate for beginners. Other web hosts include Wix, Jimdo, and SquareSpace.
When you create your site in a host like this, you get to choose what your page will look like from a number of template options. You also have the ability to post content whenever you want, archive it, etc.
Create A Niche Objective for Your Site
Now that you have the website and have got the hang of it, it’s time to decide what your website is aimed for. A great website has a definite purpose, such as for business or for entertainment. A business website is called an e-commerce, and might need more advanced web developing than your casual WordPress. An entertainment website is where you occasionally post things to gain traffic. Its better to create a niche objective for your site so that you know you’ll get the traffic you need from the specified target audience. For example, create a website dedicated for surfers in Bali, Indonesia. You can create content based on surfing activities, news, and any evergreen surfing content.
Be Consistent in Content
The key to a successful website is consistence. Your audience needs to know when you’ll be posting new content so that they can look forward to it, and so that new audience will always feel updated. Leaving your website without posting anything for too long will cause a decrease in traffic, because the audience will think that you’re inactive.
If you’re active, your traffic will either stay the same or increase. The likeliness of it decreasing is low, unless you posted a low quality content. Make sure that you announce your content scheduling to the audience as well. For example, let your audience know if you plan on posting a content related to news every Tuesday, and content related to lifestyle every Thursday.…
