In this brief tutorial, I show you exactly how to create a website, that is fully responsive, in less than 15 minutes. There are three steps I walk you through in order to help you start a website on your own.
1. Get a domain name and hosting. 2. Install WordPress and plugins. 3. Install and configure a theme.
We will build a website with the WordPress platform, and it will only cost around $10 per month. Here are the features that it will have:
1. A home page with a slider and featured content. 2. A blog page with featured, recent blog posts. 3. An about page with a sidebar to configure. 4. A contact page with a contact form and captcha. 5. An "About The Author" widget in the sidebar and footer. 6. A Newsletter opt-in form in the sidebar and footer. 7 Social icons linked to your social profiles. 8. A fully responsive design so it displays well on any device.
If you aren't a technical person, or if you can't design a website on your own, then this tutorial will be perfect for you. The whole process I walk you through is point and click. Installing and configuring WordPress and plugins can be done with the click of a mouse. And we even import the images and text so you can see what the website is supposed to look like.
I've seen a lot of tutorials on YouTube that supposedly show you how to build a website, when all they're doing is showing you how to install WordPress. Or, if they really do show you how to make a website, the process is long and drawn out, and takes around an hour to complete.
With this tutorial, you'll complete your own website in less than 15 minutes.
Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions.
