Having an enticing and interesting website that is going to get visitors and traffic to come and look through what you have to offer is a must. You want your visitors to stay and read through your posts you have – not just skim through them.
To do this the Theme you have on your website will be important.
What is a Theme you may ask.
It is the layout of your website and how the visitors see it on arrival.
Having the right product they are looking for and lots of information on that product is the key.
But I also believe the lay out of your website is important because there is nothing worse than going to a website and you may just see lots of large images – to many ad’s – very tiny font for the posts. Where are the posts? Are they layed out so the visitor has easy access.
Another thing I don’t like is clicking on to a post only to be taken to a post you don’t even want to be looking at. Crazy links!
So proper access and lay out of your posts is important as well.
All of these things are the first thing your visitor see’s even before reading your posts.
Aspects of a Theme.
Each Theme comes with many features and of course each theme is different. The platform I am with uses WordPress.org Themes. They are amazing – I could spend all day going through them. How do you choose – very carefully I suggest – reason being once your Theme is selected then thats the one that will be representing you and the one you will be wanting to show off. Of course you can delete and change your mind – but you don’t want to be doing that to often.
Each Theme comes with different columns and widgets – so reading the details of desired Theme will help you in deciding if it is the one you want. Also there is a preview prior to selecting which I think is really good.
Some of the themes WordPress offers:
ePortfolio Megapress Blog Shop News Box Free Business Zita
TimelineBlog TA Newspaper New York Business
Some Themes come with installed features – otherwise you get to choose a variety of things concerning the lay out.
You will want to have a Brand name – Your own personal Brand that no one else will have.
This will be your site identity.
Also your website Title of your own choosing.
You get to choose the actual Header image. This can be one already installed with the Theme or you can up-load a percific one that you want. Once up-loaded you can crop it for a perfect fit.
I love this part of creating a website – I think it’s fun and exciting.
You choose the Header text color – back round color – every thing.
You select what Home page settings you want. You can have your latest posts or your can have a static page. A static page is a fixed page that visitors will see on first arrival at your site. Then your post page is where all your posts will be.
How Do You Start Your own Website?
This is my most exciting part of all this explaining – as I want to introduce you to where I started on creating my sites.
It is a platform called Wealthy Affiliate. This is one of the worlds Top Ranking Platforms. I’m not just saying this because I’m part of it – I’m sharing this knowledge because it is a most exciting platform to start your website and get it up and running for all the world to see.
Every store or business has a website. This is how they promote online shopping. You do not have to have a high quality business to do all this – you just need to have passion to want to promote your own product and to do that you want a professional looking website.
There are websites promoting several products online – you do not have to settle with just one.
But as I said earliar, the more knowledge you have on your product or service – the better it will be for visitors to want to come to your website to get the infomation they are looking for. This is another impotant key to having a successful website.
You have a product or service you want to promote and start making yourself revenue online. This is the most common and widely used way of promoting your product.
You may also want to have a website just to share your knowledge of a product or service – not worrying about any form of revenue. This is good as well, it’s your website – your knowledge – your choice.
