When businesses come to us looking for marketing, and don’t have an existing site, they need a place to start. The first question we ask many business owners is “do you really even need a website?” If spending thousands on website design and development isn’t within their means, or even justified for the small size of their business, then blog sites are the way to go. The are not only quick to set up and customize, they are super SEO-friendly, and can be updated very easily. Here’s a breakdown on the process of a blog site setup (which is usually much faster than a website):
1. Selection of domain name and host.
This process can take as little as a half hour to do.
2. Setup of blog software.
In most cases, the host already has WordPress or another blog program already installed on your hosted domain; it’s just a matter of turning it on!
3. Selection of design template.
Blog software like WordPress make it so easy to pick out a template and apply it to your site.
4. Customization of widgets.
Widgets can be just as easy to set up, requiring just a basic knowledge of how FTP clients work to install.
Of course if you have a trained professional setting up your blog site it will perform better with the search engines. Should you need our assistance, we are happy to provide a free initial consultation.
