A Business Website for FREE with WordPress (part 1)

WordPress is an amazing site.  It is not just for bloggers.  Everyone, who is anyone, can create web presence through this platform.  Best part it is for FREE!

I have thought about doing this tutorial through video and YouTube.  Of course that would be beneficial because of the cpm and subscriptions.  However, one of the annoying things I have witnessed is people having to go back to a certain step a few times as the video can move pretty quickly over steps.  So – to make it a little easier I am using screenshots for you.  I might bring in a video on the later stages.

The first step is to go to WordPress.  The first page will prompt you to create a website address.

step 1

 

 

 

you can enter in any name and click create website

You can opt to have your own domain name which you can purchase through wordpress. As this is a tutorial about a free site I will chose “no thanks” scroll to the bottom and create free blog.

You will be taken to the next step where you can change your tag line (more about this later) Click NEXT!

step 11a

Click Dashboard to go to your Custom Management Section!

The first step is almost done.  You just need to click DASHBOARD to take you to your custom management  section!

This is what your website will look  likes behind the scenes.  Next section will will create some modifications.

Very often you can get a website up and going within an hour.  However things you need to get sorted first is a little more information about you (or your business), pages you would like to have, and things you would like on those pages(content).  This tutorial will give you tools to make your website look professional, however as a free website there are limitations and we will talk about that later.  Please feel free to share with your friends or people who would be keen to have a website for free!
