Forget even all your so called web designers who are out to quote a killer price for you. I know because I've been there. There is a plague going on where people think that using a certain jargon will give them the ability to "overcharge" you.
The good news is those days are over and almost anything you want to do can be done quickly and easily. All it takes is a good will to succeed. Plus, a dash of a heart to learn from others and what they have to say. Likewise, lets begin your lesson on how to design a website.
Step #1: Determine Your Theme
Just like any other web designers will ask you is this. They will try to figure out how to design a website with your personality. Hence, questions like your favorite colors, feel and layout. Don't be freaked out just keep reading. Colors can be anything from your own liking or a certain format.
Name 3 type of main colors that you like. Remember this and start to imagine what would you want to website visitors to feel when they arrive at your website. Relaxed? Excited? Touched? Sexually Aroused? All these are emotions when visitors come.
Pick one or a combination then decide the format of your website. Where you want to position your menus or contents.
Step #2: Getting Your Website Done
Often times, many of my friends gets puzzled when they want to learn how to design a website. They say it takes a good software like FrontPage or DreamWeaver to do it. Guess what? You don't even need to know HTML to start.
It may be useful in the future but you really only need to know how to write an email to get started. Go ahead and search about the many "free website editors" you can find on Google. Choose on that you like and start editing like its a MS Word document. Then save it. Its as simple as that.
Step #3: Making Your Website Public
Get the word out! Thats what you need to do after you have designed your website. Use an FTP uploader. Don't worry if you don't know what that means. It just stands for File Transfer Protocol. You will need a web host (a space for your website to reside) to store your work on the Internet.
Invest in a good reliable host. Make sure you get a good uptime, space and support with this service. Some web hosting services can cost between $10 - $100 monthly depending on what you want.
All in all, make sure you have the consistency to continue to update yourself. Learn more advanced methods on how to design a website online. Making your web content fresh and appealing will really impact your bottom line profits and traffic conversion.
