If you’re a solopreneur, startup, or nonprofit in need of a website, the first thing on your mind is probably “what’s this going to cost?” It’s a good question that sadly has no good answer. There’s no formula that you can use to help figure it out since there are just too many variables in play. But there are a few items you will need that can be estimated, so we'll go over these in this post.
Do you need a website for your business, or need to rebuild your current website, but feel stuck and unsure what to do or where to start? The good news is that you’re not alone! I’ve been there many times myself and with my clients. Not knowing how to get started is way more common than you may think.
Normally people rush to this step without doing any of the background work. Not you though! You know exactly what you need.
When building a website, knowing your budget will enable you to be more confident about what kind of website you need. Knowing what you can spend means you know what features you can build in now, and which ones you should wait on.
Branding is one of those things that solopreneurs and startups often overlook. You’ve got a name, maybe have a logo, and have picked out a few colors you like - that’s good enough, right? NOPE! Here's why.
Replace the fear of not knowing what kind of website you need with confidence that you’re getting something that will serve your business now and in the future. And when searching for the right platform, you’ll know what to look for and what questions to ask a designer if you choose to hire someone.
Your client’s needs are your GPS. Understanding their needs allows you to create processes that will help you communicate with confidence and enable you to build a website that grows with your business.
Setting goals is an important step in facing your website fears. When you know where you're going, getting there doesn't seem to be as scary.
If you're a solopreneur and you don't yet have a website or aren't happy with the one you have, you're probably overwhelmed at the thought of putting one together. I want you to know that it's not as scary as you think it is.
