How to Create A Mini Website In 10 Steps|
The fastest and easiest path to making money online is to find high demand keywords with little competition.
Then create a mini website (1 or 2 pages) and upload to your web host.
To create a quick and easy webpage or site these are the steps I take:
I use Frontpage2000 almost exclusively.
Some web designers look down on FP but it works for me.
They like either Dreamweaver or NetFusion, which I have never used. So I can't give you my
opinion. But I will say my 4+ years of using FP2000 has been a love/hate relationship
I love the ease and speed you can create a page, but hate the way it adds code and has a quirky nature of the software.
But overall, it does the job and if you want to see some examples I have done, go to:
Ok, I'm not that artistic but I like to keep them simple and easy to navigate. That is important as
most surfers click, scan for a few seconds and either stay or click off. You need above all, CONTENT! for the visitor or the Search Engines.
The steps I take to create a one pager with FP2000:
1. Write the content with Notepad, Word or any text editor.
2. Open a new page in the folder (on your computer) you will store your web site.
3. Open a template. I use 10 templates I bought from Jimmy D. Brown, my favorite author. You can see them here:
4. Copy/paste content in new page.
5. If selling something, add an order button or link. I use either Clickbank, Paypal or
Regsoft.com (I like Regsoft because they accept phone and check orders, I like Clickbank because they pay every two weeks, lol)
6. Add any other links to pages, contact us, or special offers.
7. Create metatags (I use an 'instant metatag creator' I got in the software package at Free Software Forever. http://www.free-software-forever.com/sales/sale-08242002.htm)
8. Add a pop up, either entrance, exit or pop under. I know you hate 'em and I don't like a site
to throw 3,4,5 in a row. But they do work, and work well if done sparingly. I use Jimmy Brown's Eyepoppin' Popups to create them.
9. Upload to your web host, using Frontpage extensions or ftp. I can use FTP but its a little more hassle. You need to make sure your host has FP extensions available and they have activated the transfer of nameservers (DNS).
10. Voila! A brand new web page for millions to see
Oh yeah, make sure all the links and order buttons work!
That's it, not hard to do once you have done a few hundred ! Just kidding.
Don't forget to get some traffic, and I have covered that thoroughly in the last few issues.
