One thing I enjoy doing is helping businesses design a Digital Strategy. Most of my entrepreneur friends want an online presence for their startups.
Their budgetary allocations for Digital Strategies are usually pretty tight therefore I’m always looking for creative ways to help them without breaking the bank.
One such friend/client approached me a couple of weeks back and he wanted an online presence for his startup Food Processing company but did not have a lot of funds to spend.
I went researching for various free tools and web builders to build a website that won’t require contracting the services of a Web Developer to build a custom site.
I decided to give Wix a shot. I had seen a couple of their ads on YouTube and their commercials seemed pretty convincing .
The steps for creating the website on Wix was simple an d straight to the point
- Signed up for wix, using my email address
- Answered a couple of questions regarding the type of website I wanted, the industry the business is in etc.
- Chose an existing template
- Populated the website with pre-written information on the “About Us” and “Contact Us” content
- Filled the site with stock images and I was done.
In all, it took about 10 minutes to go through complete the process of building the site. I’m a big believer in “Action over Perfection” therefore once there is a minimum viable website up and running I can then update it to the clients needs as and when they request. What matters now is the Client has a fully functioning website that prospects can be pointed to
Check out the site; Note the selected domain has not been hooked yet.
The purpose of this blog post is to tell you there are no excuses any more especially if you have a desire to build a personal brand, start a business or a movement, then go for it.
