Setting Up A Website

setting up a websiteSetting up a website for any business is a must if they want to be seen as professionals and taken seriously by their target market. The good news is websites can be set-up quickly by a good web designer and can be live and working for your business with days.

Website Set-up Steps

How does the process of setting up a website actually work? There are a few basic steps that must be taken as follows.

Choose A Domain Name

– Your domain name or URL is the unique resource location (or website address) of your website on the net. Think of this like a sign post that points to your address only. No to URL’s are exactly the same. Let us know what URL you wish to use and we’ll run a check to see if it is available. We include a free .com domain for 1 year with your new website set-up.

– Now that you have a domain (which is like a sign post for your files online), you’ll need somewhere to store your website so that it is accessible online to the public. This is where hosting comes in. Each website has to be hosted on a server that is connected to the internet so that the files can be accessed via URL’s. I provide web hosting for all new websites a very reasonable rates. This hosting has full cpanel access, backup wizard options, email accounts and traffic statistics as well as many more options.

Website Set-up

– Now you have a domain and hosting you’re website can be installed/uploaded. We use a powerful CMS solution for most websites. This will enable the website owner to easily and quickly add and update text, images, embed video and other media files with just a few clicks. For those who really want to be hands off we can create simple HTML websites and update them as you require.

list of video marketing websitesPromote Your Website

– The amount and type of promotion you’ll need to do will depend greatly on the niche you are operating in. Some websites require no promotion as they are in a small niche that it is easy to rank for. Others, like hotels, will have to do more promotion to drive traffic to their site. We provide free advice for SME’s about how to market their business online, as well as article marketing link build and search engine optimisation (SEO) services.

Budget Web Design Services Ireland

budget web design

The good news for most SME’s in Ireland is that budget web design can deliver an online presence with a lot of punch.

Thanks to the rapid advancement in today’s web technology, your new low cost web design can be as powerful as many expensive corporate sites.

Manage Your Own Website And Save On Update Costs

Imagine being able to add, update and delete content from your website without having to pay a web studio to help. How about easily adding text and images, creating pages and blog posts, adding video and other media such as Word Documents, PDF’s and more?

StarterWebsite.net provide websites with content management systems (cms) that enable the website owner to update the site themselves. The budget cms websites come with a huge selection of website themes to choose from, and for a small fee, StarterWebsites.net will customise the website banner for you, making the site unique. These website design packages are so affordable that any business with a small media budget can get online.

You Don’t Have To Pay Web Studio Overheads

Link Building Results

link building tips from Starter WebsitesI just wanted to follow up with you guys on the previous link building article (Quality Link Building Made Easy).

A Quick Recap

I received a link exchange request from a marketer in one of my niches. He was building links for his client and offered me a link from his purpose built link exchange blog in return for a link to his clients site. This is called three-way linking. A link from his blog was of little value to me but the list of other link partners on his blog was. The vast majority of these sites are legitimate businesses, in the same niche or directly related niche to mine, and they have all exchanged links with the marketer that contacted me. This is IMPORTANT as it means there is a high probability that they will exchange links with me.

This is good, because I don’t have to search these possible link partners out, my marketer friend did all that work for me :) . All I have to do is ask this list of websites for a link exchange to my website.

Action

So I made list of the sites I wanted to request a reciprocal link from and checked to see if they had a ‘links’ or ‘partners’ or ‘resources’ page where they would place my link. So, using a template email (similar to the example I provided in the previous link building blog post), I emailed each website requesting a reciprocal link,  32 sites in total. Three emails bounced (their emails were not active) and one website required that I set-up a free account with  them before I could exchange links – which I did not do. Link building is so time consuming that you just need to cut out the extra work and move on to the next link prospect…so that left 28 active link exchange requests.

Results

Over the following two weeks or so, I received 13 confirmed link exchanges. This is almost 50% success rate, and with time that could be improved upon. It can take time to see the results of these link exchanges, so don’t become disheartened. The trick is to continue building links on a regular basis and in time the additional traffic and page-rank will come.

More On Link Building

This is an example of two-way reciprocal link building, and I mentioned three-way link building too. There are more methods of building links back to your website which we’ll cover in a future article.
