*Have some other business that’s not a candle business? This video series can still help you build your own website and get your business online!
I know many of you are thinking about starting a candle making business. I also know that having a web developer build your website for you probably isn’t in your budget!
And that’s ok, I’ve been there, and so I learned to build my own websites. The great thing is, you can build your own website for your business too, and I am going to do my very best to show you how. Of course, if you do have the funds to hire a web developer, that is certainly the easier and more efficient way to go to get your business online.
First, if you haven’t yet started your candle business, I encourage you to go to my Getting Started page and scroll down to the business section and read through those articles there.
Once you have gone through all the steps to get your candle business ready to roll, you’re serious about giving this business a go, and you’ve decided you want to build your own website and sell online, then come back to this video! 🙂
This first video is going to show you exactly how to set up your website through Bluehost (get a discount using this link). I have used Bluehost for my web hosting for over 8 years! I host this website and my other websites through them and in that time I have very rarely had any issues so I highly recommend this hosting company. Now, there are certainly other good hosting companies out there, but since I use Bluehost, I am going to show you how to set up your website through them.
*Now, just to be open and honest, the links to Bluehost that I provide, are affiliate links, meaning I do make a commission if you sign up with them using these links. If you do, I want to say a huge THANK YOU in advance for your support!
So, again, in this video you will see how to set up your website which includes going through the registration process with Bluehost, and then installing WordPress, picking a theme and writing your first blog post.
In the next video I will go through some important things to set up right off, and how to add pages.
Now, I know that it may seem like I’m going kind of slow with these, but I want anyone that wants to, to be able to understand and see exactly how to set up a website. I don’t want you to think you can’t get your business online just because you can’t afford a web developer!
What if I already have a website using WordPress?
Well, then you can probably skip this first video, and possibly the second, but after the second video, I will be getting into how to set up a fully functioning web store, adding a logo, a little on changing the design, adding plugins, adding products, setting up shipping, and everything you need to get your candle business ready for online customers.
I hope this video is helpful for you! Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any suggestions, comments or questions. I’m really excited to help you get your candle business online and growing your customer base!
