We are the best web design company Seattle, and today in this article, we are going to show you how to build your very own best website step by step using WordPress. WordPress is used by people and companies all over the world, such as CNN, Forbes, UPS, and eBay, just to name a few. Rather than just talking about how great WordPress is, though, let’s take a look at the website we’re going to be building together. Open your browser and type obama.org, and this is the site of the ex-president of the USA, Barak Obama. So this is the exact type of website we’re going to be building today in a step by step manner. So without further ado, let’s get started.
Fitst step: outline the structure
First of all, I am going to show you how to add your own logo, create the menu, how to add the image slider and the homepage which will link to our various pages. I am also going to show you how to add text and different pages such as an about page, where we’ll have some text, and an image, and then we’ll add a contact page as well. Then, we’re going to have a contact form so our visitors can get in contact our visitors – they just need to fill out their name, email address, subject and their message, and then when they click send – it’s going to be sent straight to us as an email. We are also going to be creating a blog on this website so that if we click blog, we will see our different blog posts. I’ll also show you how to add the share buttons at the bottom so if our visitors liked the post, they can just click one of the share buttons and share it with their friends. Then underneath our blog posts, the visitors will also have the ability to leave a comment so people can tell us what they think of our different blog posts. The website itself is also going to be hundred percent mobile-friendly and what that means is if we resize the window, people will see the website changes and rearranges itself – so it always looks equally good-looking and uniform. So, if you’re ready to start building an awesome website together, let’s begin.
Second step: Prepare a checklist
Now, you want to put together a checklist of things we’re going to do today to get our website up and running and looking as good as that website (Obama.org) you just saw. I will also cover the cost of anything that isn’t free and will tell you how much it can cost you approximately. So, the first thing we need to do is get a web hosting for our new website. Web hosting is basically like a computer that’s left on 24 hours a day and seven days a week with our website loaded on to it. This way people can gain access to our website even when our own computer is switched off. Web hosting is something we will require if we’re going to run a website and will usually cost us around eight to ten dollars a month. And I am going to show you a way that will get you the first month hosting for only one penny. But that’s for the next part, till then, browse through all the numerous guides and tutorials on our site.
