When it comes to building website’s there are so many things. It’s down right overwhelming. It’s taken me years to learn everything I know today. And I don’t say that to make you feel like all is lost. I tell you so you can get an idea of just how much there is to learn. And knowing how vast the world of web design is… has made me want to bring you the ultimate list of WordPress website tips for online business owners.
Because I don’t want you to have to take forever to learn all these things. I know there’s a lot to know and understand.
But I wanted to start you off with the essential things you have to know so you don’t make the same mistakes I did. Like how bad my first website was… gosh I’m so glad that’s gone.
Or the fact that the very first WordPress site I built… I disliked it so much I re-did it just 3 months later.
And that’s after I spent a month solid putting together the site. The point is… it can get bad, and there is a learning curve. But… you don’t have to go through what I did. So let’s go through my list of WordPress tips for your online business.
And when it comes to building websites, I know that there’s a lot to it. Best practices, how to make it look polished and beautiful, and all the things. I’ve put together a quick 5 day workshop to help you make your next website beautiful. Check out Simple Site Secrets today.
But, before you go diving into that, let’s take a look at the list of WordPress website tips for online business owners.
If you’re totally new to websites then this is a must have beginner resource for you. This will cover everything from domains to how to get started building it.
This is probably my favorite WordPress tip for your online business. Why? Because it’s such a money saver. And when you’re just starting out… finding ways to get things done and not break the bank is essential.
And when it comes to building websites that can get expensive real fast. If you’ve spent any time on my blog you’ll know that my favorite option is to use Elementor. It’s a theme builder… an entire website builder.
It’s an amazing WordPress Plugin that you can use to design your website. It’s what I’ve used for my website, and all my client sites as well.
If you’re not new to WordPress you’ll know that every WordPress site has a Theme. But, I’ve figured out how you can have that beautiful website and not have to rely on a theme to do the designing for you.
So check out this post to learn more about how you can make that happen. I promise it’ll be a game changer for you. You won’t be limited to what a WordPress theme looks like.
This is my list of every WordPress plugin that I absolutely love to use! From eCommerce, to stores, website builders, and more.
One of the amazing things about WordPress is the versatility you have with the plugins that are available. You can make your website do virtually anything you can think of. You just have to find the right plugin for the job.
I know that when you’re starting out in business, getting things done and not breaking the bank is important. So figuring out how to get a website done cheap is enticing.
But, before you do that… read up the problem with it. Not all cheap web design is bad… or good. So take this one to heart before you end up hurting.
I know… I know… I’m not trying to be negative here. But I have to tell you like it is. Sure.. your website’s “done” for a time. But not really.
There’s more to a website than just building it and forgetting it. Like that old late night infomercial “set it and forget it”.
I know I just aged myself. But that dang Ron Popeil infomercial for that rotisserie is stuck in my head.
I know, I just told you earlier that one of my favorite WordPress plugins is a website builder. But… they’re not all created the same. There’s pros and cons to both.
It’s important to know what you get with each, and what you want your website to do before you settle on one.
I know, your website is important. There’s so many hopes, dreams, and ideas for it.
But did you know that it’s really easy to make this one simple mistake? Not doing it… is one of the best things you can do for your website and your business.
I know… updating your website. Not something you want to talk about.
But the fact is… you’ll have to update something on it eventually. Either because you’re changing something in the business or launching a new product. Or because WordPress or a plugin you’re using need to do an update. Either to add features, make sure they’re staying compatible with other tools, or fix a critical security issue.
Either way, it’s gonna happen. Like it or not… like going to the dentist or the dr… it has to happen.
I know I mentioned this earlier but I wanted to tell you a little bit more about it. Simple Site Secrets is the web design tips web designers don’t tell you. In this 5 day workshop I’m teaching you how to make your next or current website look amazing.
The goal… to make you look polished and professional through your website, giving you that online credibility that’s so important lately. After all, everywhere we turn it seems like there’s another scammer coming out of the woodwork.
The fact remains, you can have a beautiful website, it doesn’t have to be like climbing mount Everest. The important thing is, you don’t make the mistakes I did. Use this list of WordPress website tips for online business owners. Learn from what I did wrong, and you’ll be looking amazing.
