Is it to provide information, to sell products or to gather together information on prospective customers? Most people use the one website for all three, but it is possible to have a different website designed specifically for each of these tasks with seamless links between them.

Keeping your website’s links working, and up-to-date, is vitally important. Sound web design favors the user, if you have links that are broken or go to error messages, users will go away. Check each link on your website regularly to be sure they work correctly.

Then a MLM company that calls themselves SkyX (Not their real name) came to the scene. They were supposedly going to revolutionize the world of online business. They operated their business very much like a pyramid scheme, with their main products being a web design software, some learning tool and web hosting for one year that teaches one how to make websites. To me at that time, it was the product I was looking for. Being so very new to the Internet, I did not try to look at other options.

Never bite off more than you can chew by attempting to design multiple sites at once. You should keep things simple by only working on one site at a time. Even if you do have some web design skills, you may get crossed up with your projects, or one of your sites may suffer neglect. Just take things one at a time.

Use key phrases throughout your site as you design it. It is vital to bear in mind that your web design isn’t great because it is artsy, but because it persuades the visitor. You must determine what target group you wish to attract to your site. What type of language will your visitors respond to? Find three to five keywords and layer them throughout your design.

All three companies offer trial versions that you can download and use for a month and, as far as I could tell, they were all full working versions. To say ‘point and click’ is really an understatement, because these three programs are so easy to use, it’s more like just playing around in Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

Once you have selected the hosting company for your website, you will want to make sure that to purchase a domain name. Sometimes these steps in building a website get reversed, and that is quite all right. What you are looking for is an address to direct visitors to your site with and hosting for the pages you build.

Although the search engines spot similarity between sites, you are able to make your site unique with small design tweaks, color changes and graphics.
