Top Tools For Website Success
What To do with your website:
Now that you have started your new website. What Top Tools For Website Success do you choose?What kind of budget do you use? do you have to sign a contract with a company you pick to help make things better. Don’t fall for all the fancy shinny new stuff that costs a fortune and produces nothing.
Finding the right tools is one of the biggest challenges we all deal with. Some say word press is best. others swear by jaxay. so where on earth do you start to implement change?
I would have to say what is the golden rule is when working on any business, is how do I gain customers. and ultimately make money. This discussion will take a broader look at this question.
If The Wheel Is Not Broke Don’t Fix It:
Many, many people before us have become successful simply by repeating what was taught to them. To make money on the internet or for that matter, anywhere. One of the main keys is “don’t reinvent the wheel”.
Stick with the basics. When dealing with a website. keep things trimmed down and keep it uniform. Don’t add different colors to every page or post. people people will start to think ” oh boy, I did’t know the circus was in town”. I use basic colors that all work well together.
I don’t want extreme colors or fluorescent colors. Your readers will bounce away so fast if you do that. You definitely want to use images, videos and links. it breaks up the text and keeps the reader engaged.
Anytime you use links away from and to other pages. If you have an opportunity to use windows in the link set up take full advantage of it. What happens is your reader will be taken to the link, but it will open in a new window so the reader can find there way back.
Choose A Domain Name:
Every business should create a website. If you don’t you are leaving money on the table. When you decide to set up a website. You become noticed by many more sets of eyes then by just being seen by the local bunch in your neighborhood.
It does take time to build a following but in the end it is really worth it.
Once you have decided to create a website the next thing is choose a Domain name and design a logo. Pick something professional and has a catchy ring to it if possible.
Remember this domain name will become your brand and once it is chosen it is hard to go back later and change it. Printing and tooling would have to be changed which can add into some major costs.
The average price for a domain name is 10-12 dollars. Some companies that do this will offer a discounted price to get your business then there is a yearly cost to keep the domain active so you don’t loose it.
So in the beginning there would be the initial start up fee and then the once a year fee. It is not lots of money but it is one of your most important steps to move forward. I will supply a link of a preferred vendor I recommend for you to use to get you going.
Personal Business Email:
After you decide on your domain name. You need to create a business email address. Once again there are many companies out there to help with this process. I would look around for a temporary free service to try before committing any money.
Since these companies want your money make them chase you for there business. They need the sale worse then you need the service. I have seen MANY companies start out real aggressive in the beginning. then once something happens they are no where to be found.
One company that was helping me with optimization of my images. When I reached out with my technical question. The tech support member was so rude. He was treating me like I was bothering his happy time and how dare I ask him anything technical, when I should know the answer to the question right off the bat.
I will provide you another good link that I recommend you please consider.
I find email to be very tricky for me to get through sometimes and if I can find a simplistic way to make it work then I use it. group mail ltd works great for me.
I was using free gmail but some sites will not do business with you unless it is more professional. Please keep that in mind. If you are new and don’t have a big budget you can use gmail but consider upgrading as soon as possible.
Choosing The Right Website Builder:
Again many, many companies are out there to help you with this task. Some more expensive then others. you can have a professional do this but if it is your website. You should want to know what is going on with it. Just in case something should go wrong.
I have pulled my hair out many times on a minor problem. I was determined to get it fixed and learn from my mistakes. I don’t think it is too wise to have your tech support on speed dial on an easy fix you could have handled in the beginning.
The top four web builder sites out there are:

Add Content And Information To your Website:
This is one of the most important parts of the website. Content makes your website grow and your traffic increase. Without it, it is like a blank canvas. Think of a white walled apartment.
What is missing? life is missing. When you compose new content use plenty of keyword structure. Keep the content fresh and interesting. Try your very best to get the reader to engage and feel comfortable with you. Even if you are brand new and are still trying to figure things out.
You should try to add new content in the beginning. About one post a day to start then as your website gets more momentum you can tapper off to one piece of content every week.
You should mainly focus on content that supports product reviews. Most people already know what they are looking for before they even get on the internet. When you offer product review articles you weed out most of the tire kickers and are left with serious minded readers.
