Web Design DIY is a frequently-updated blog which exists to help people build their own website in a way that is easy, affordable, and effective.
While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with hiring a professional web designer, we’ve met countless people who would rather save money and enjoy complete control over the development of their online presence by going it alone.
Our job is to help them do that.
If you’re thinking of taking the DIY approach to building your first website but find you’re continually running into problems or that you get stuck trying to make one of the countless decisions involved in the web creation, process, we’re here to help you.
Whether you’re trying to build your own website for your new small business, or whether you’ve been tasked with updating the online presence of your employers, Web Design DIY aims to answer all of the questions you have about creating a successful website which attracts visitors and turns them into long-term, loyal customers.
On this website, you’ll find the answers to such burning questions as:
- How do I choose the best web hosting company for my website?
- Should I use a drag-and-drop website builder like Wix or a CMS like WordPress?
- What is responsive web design and why do I need it?
- How do I start a blog?
- How do I install Google Analytics?
And much, much more.
More than just web design
Yes, we focus on the essential elements of building a website, but that’s far from all that we do.
After all, just because you’ve created a website, that’s no guarantee that people are going to visit it.
Nor is simply attracting visitors enough to guarantee the kind of leads or direct sales you’ve been hoping for.
So, at Web Design DIY, we do much more than simply teach you how to build a website.
We teach you how to make that website a success.
We teach you about using SEO to improve your traffic.
We teach you how to use killer content to captivate audiences and build brand loyalty.
We teach you about marketing, social media, and much, much much more.
