    There are so many ways to build a website. If you want to build one by yourself without any technical knowledge then try a free website builder tool.

    Use as many free resources initially to get started. Use simple, yet effective marketing strategies that cost nothing. There are several free hosting services available on the Internet. Visit the WordPress org site to download the software, it will provide you a professional looking website with almost no budget.

    If you want to do it yourself, then set up hosting at a site like HostGator or BlueHost. They have quick installs in their CPanel for WordPress and other CMS Platforms. You can have a site up in minutes.

    Although free site builders are a great way to build a website on a small budget, I believe most fail to weigh the costs and benefits.

     

    If you're a decent web designer or very ambitious to learn, then these things are great. As long as it's a hobby to you and fun, investing your time into creating your own website is budget-smart and therapeautic. 

     

    But as a business owner, will you enjoy web designing?  Do you have the time?

     

    With the increasing popularity of these free site builders, professional designers and developers are forced to reduce prices and streamline production in order to stand out from the crowd.

     used the free web design tools offered by Yahoo.  I have my site hosted through them and they provide the software ( SiteBuilder ) for free.  Yahoo also includes a blog tool and several other free services.  Since I’m just starting out, this was the best rout for me.  I can also go in and add to or change pages of my website without paying someone to make the changes.

    Hi,

     

    The best way to develop a professional website/blog is to use WordPress.

    1. Register your domain, 

    2. Sign up at http://wordpress.org /

    3. Decide on a Host, I use HostGator but WordPress recommends Blue Host.

     

    Design

    1. Do your research on your target market, and why you want/need a website.

    2. Look at sites within your industry & OUTSIDE your industry.

    3. Check out copyblogger.com & problogger.net for great advice

     

    Development

    I have successfully been using Elance for years.  You have to do your research though.  You have to look at the providers work history and work samples.  The clearer you are & the more detailed your requirements are the better your outcome.


    Good Luck

    I think the best way is with Wordpress. You by a theme, a domain, a host (like Hostgator) and you're set.

    There are many templete website build's that you can use depending on your need's, like WordPress. 

     

    Although, I would have to say you usually get what you pay for. Our Web Design/ Development Company has had many clients who needed us to come and fix budget website nightmere's.

     

    That's not to mention that having a website doesn't mean anything if no one who searches the internet can find you. Search Engine Optimization begins with the code, and on-page SEO. 

     

    If you're not optimizing for the search engines, you might as well not exist on the internet.

    Hey guys,

     

    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1487919235/los-angeles-wings-shoes-fragrances-headphones

     

    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan

    At http://www.50businessarticles.com we are using a combination of InMotion Hosting, GoDaddy and Wordpress. I think it is setting us back around USD 80 per year. But for every subsequent website we create we would only have to pay for the domain from GoDaddy, so maybe around USD 10?

    The biggest expenditure is advertising/marketing. We started 50 Business Articles with the idea of keeping it lean but the reality is, no one will see your website if you are not willing to spend a few dollars on advertising/marketing.

    So there's cheap. And then there's effective.

    Hi to my fellow entrepreneurs,My name is sarah and I have an idea for a productivity app/site wherein the user pays a flat fee of $10 to have a virtual assistant make a phone call on his behalf. Say for example the user wants to find out why his frequent flyer miles weren't credited to his account, but doesn't want to wait on hold until a rep takes the call. As an absolute noob, I don't know if it'd be better to develop this idea as a website, a phone app or both. I really thank you for any ideas!'

    There is a huge list of online website builder. They provide free of cost website building and domain name as well. Though it is a sub domain for customized you might have to pay. They even have categories like business, engineering, hobby, shopping. You can select accordingly. You do not need any programming skills in them. I got my structural engineering website from webs.com.
    some more sites weebly.com, wix.com
