How to build a website

When building a website, the first thing to think of is an idea.  Most of the times you already know your idea so that should be quite easy, then you want to think of a title for your website.  Now the title can be very important so there are some great FREE tools that you can use to help you choose the right title.  Google provides some great tools like Google Insights or Google Adwords Keyword Tool, both of these tools can help you see the popularity of they keywords you might be looking into. Google Insights will show you the past popularity and future predictions of the keywords you search, along with giving you a few other related keywords. Google Adwords Keyword Tool also shows you the popularity of a keyword, along with other related keywords.  But it will also show you how dense the market is  this comes in use when you are trying to think of other ideas or names.  If your fighting against more people then your fighting an uphill battle but it can still be done.  For the easier path you want a market that is less dense so you can dominate it and then go after more markets once you have succeeded in the first one.

Now that you have your title picked out, we can move onto how to build your website.  There are many Content Management Systems (CMS) to choose from, some people who want a blog choose something like Blogger or WordPress as they are 100% Free but do keep in mind with free solutions some limitations do apply.  Now if you want full control over all your pages to drag anything anywhere and add videos to any place on your website then I would highly suggest WebPaper, they do offer a free solution with 3 pages and 2MB of storage for uploading of images and much much more.  But also if you want you can sign up and get much more access and applications to add to your website.  The great thing about WebPaper is it’s drag and drop simplicity that no one else can compare to.

Now you might want to consider Search Engine Optimization (SEO), this is how search engines will find you.  Although search engines scan the web looking for new websites all the time, it really helps if you have the right information in the right places so the search engines know just what your website is about.  This is so they list you in the type of market or results you want to be listed in, so your traffic is full of people looking for just what you offer.  Now Search Engine Optimization consists of a lot of things, but I will cover a few crucial ones now.  Keyword Density is the amount of times you use a target keyword in your content, from my understanding and past work you want to try and keep it at 8% – 10% this means for every 100 words use the keyword no more than 8 to 10 times.  If you exceed that then search engines will consider you a robot or spam and possibly sand box or black list your domain/website.  Now meta tags such as title, description and keywords are also a MUST!  and just F.Y.I. WebPaper lets you set them right as you start building your website, so it’s very easy and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Friendly.

Now do watch out because you might be saying oh I know some website builder that works to, well don’t just try any website builder.  As some build the websites in FLASH, and the bad part about FLASH is search engines don’t understand it.  Not to mention it wont work on cell phones or mobile devices, and as iPad’s and Smart Phones become more and more popular.  You will lose out on a huge and very fast growing market, so just keep that in mind.

WebPaper also offers tons of free website templates to help you get started quite fast, all you have to do is adjust the pictures with your own, and maybe add or adjust some text and your done!

Now it is up to you to share your website with friends and family, and ask them to share it with their friends and family.  Soon you will see the traffic grow as your site takes listing on Google in a few days as well.  From then on it’s just about keeping up with the posting and addition of content to your website.

Best of Luck ! and feel free to check out more blog posts on our Blog for more website building and marketing information.

WebPage Credibility

WebPage Credibility

What is a webpage? A webpage is a single web page which consists of text, image and or videos in which can but doesn’t have to be connected to multiple pages. A connection is made by a link.

Imagine a spider web, your single webpage would be in the middle of the web and the outer web would be the web pages in which were connected to that single page (by links). In a perfect internet the web only consist of inbound links related to that single webpage.

Inbound links are links in which are coming from one location to another.

To understand how the internet works think of how people’s credibility works in real life. A person in real life gives creditably by telling another person how good of a job that person did. The internet works the same way, so if a lot of people recommend you (by linking to you) you will gain search engine credibility in turn gives you higher ranking.

Things to know..
Understand that some websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Myspace have “No Follow” links. This means that Search Engines will not give you credit from this website or any website that has a no follow attribute within their outbound links.

Paying for link credibility may not be the solution your looking for. As search engine algorithms have evolved they have gotten much smarter. This means finding cheaters, malicious results and things of the sort have been more and more of an absolute thing rather then a coin toss. It wouldn’t be in your best interest to put your self in any of those categories especially if your paying for it, right? Right. So do it the time consuming and painful way, the right way.

What is the right way?
The right way is by contacting other webmasters who are in the same field as your website is. For example, if your a hobby shop you should look for Hobby shop review websites or website in which look for new hobbies to get into for fun. Anything related (try not to go to far away from the main idea).
Second would would be to spread the word, use social media networking sites, try and stay in tune with the ones that matter. Currently as I write this (Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Digg, Instagr.am) are the important ones. New social media sites tend to explode up from the dark abyss overnight; look out for them.
Third but not final method would be to get organic listings, like Social media websites search engines are popping up like pop corn. Writing blogs, making videos and being creative when it comes to getting your name out are the fundamental foundations of successful website, oh and let me also point out consistency. It WILL be slow at first, it may take six months before you start to see a shift in traffic, sales, comments or whatever your looking to get out of exposing your website.  Do NOT give up, it is a painful process but surely pays off for those who tough it out and stick to their original plan; to get found.

Now the meta description or website description also helps users find just what you have to offer.  Try to also include some keywords in the website description such as:

How to get clients and start making money

Learning how to make money with WebPaper Online

Lets start off by explaining to you what WebPaper is. WebPaper is a full hosting service, content management system, and a full web development tool. With or without programming knowledge you will be able to completely build a fully functional and professional website on your own. Graphic experience is a plus but not necessary.

Is there anything I need to know? To answer this simply, NO! It is an advantage to know adobe photoshop, or any other image editing software.

To make money with WebPaper is simple, easy and effective if you are confidant, a self starter and very motivated. If this is not you then read no further. Making money online is easy but does take time and patients (like anything that makes money). Once you get the ball rolling the momentum will only increase bringing you more clients with less effort.

1. Getting Clients – This might be the hardest parts of anything. Doing this is not easy and can be frustrating at times. With constistncy and confiendice you will prevail. Here are some tips and tricks to doing this.

  • Tell your friends, family and anyone you come across that you develop websites (and possibly at a low cost). The more people you tell the more potential clients you will have.
  • Use the internet, you have so many resources at your finger tips USE THEM! (Craigslists, Facebook, Yahoo classifieds)
  • Build a reputation (This will bring clients to you. Its a great feeling when clients come to you and you no longer are looking for work.)
  • Be price competitive. Currently the market is only growing and getting larger. Think about your prices, to low scares people, to high scares people. You need that right number that will attract the right people to your business.
  • Have specials, certain months or even weeks you can offer specials in which you should offer lower pricing for a certain amount of clients. Example would be $450.00 reduced to $250.00. $200.00 Off this WEEK ONLY!
2. Keeping clients – Believe it or not keeping clients is not a easy task but can be done through patients, maturity, and self confidence in your services. Be willing to bite the bullet for your clients. The client is always right, most the time.
3. Collecting money – You should collect at a minimum 50% of the overall project price before starting. There will be a lot of people who will attempt to waste your time, don’t allow them. If they are serious they will have no problem doing this. Upon full approval of your work you should then collect the other 50% of the total cost of the project.
Charge for hosting, making residual income is great! Pick your monthly price (be fair!), don’t forget that you can give your clients access to their website with Sub Accounts.
