2. Create the Site

Now it’s time for the fun to begin. While you can pay someone thousands of dollars to develop a website from scratch, that is unnecessary. Instead, utilize a free template to create your site yourself.

There are many DIY website building platforms out there and Wix is one of the most common and highly recommended. You can find a free template for anything you need. You might have an e-commerce site where visitors buy products, or you might have an information site full of articles.

3. Create Killer Content

With the help of a template, you have now built a beautiful site. There is only one problem-it’s empty. So it’s time to populate it with some content that grabs your reader’s’ attention and doesn’t let go.

Think about what you know, and turn it into content. First, make sure all of your content passes a test. Ask yourself:Is it edgy?

– Is it edgy?

– Is it engaging?

– Does it enrich people’s lives?

– Does it answer your visitor’s questions?

– Is it interesting?

If it passes the test, you are ready to populate your site with your content.

4. Get People to Take Action

These are all calls to action (CTA), and they are an essential part of any successful website. If your site doesn’t have any CTAs, you can forget about making sales, closing deals, or getting more readers. It will just take up virtual space.

Use CTAs to get people to click on banners, buy your products, take orders directly from your website, buy your music, book an appointment from any device, or use a contact form to enable your customers to speak to you. You can also use them to collect email addresses that you will use for future marketing campaigns.

5. Run Your own Blog

Your site looks amazing, but there is still something missing. It doesn’t have a blog. A blog lets you share your ideas with the world on a regular basis.

A couple of blog posts a week is a great way to reach more people. Just make those posts interesting.

You’re busy? Don’t worry. Start with posting two to three a week. You can always add to them later when you get more time. Just don’t forget to make it interesting!

The first step is opening a FREE Blog with Wix »

6. Go Mobile

If you’re just reaching people on desktop computers, you’re missing a big market. You have to go mobile. Make sure your site is mobile friendly. One of the easiest ways to do this is to build a mobile version of your site. A good website builder offers a mobile version of your site and lets you customize it as you want, so your website will look its best on any device.

7. Now that you have built it, will they come?

If you build it, they will come … maybe. You have to put yourself out there in front of your audience if you’re going to get visitors. Connect your site to social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and share your website with friends and family.

Now it’s time to turn your incredible idea into a reality. You owe it to the world to share your vision. Take it from your mind, online.

Good luck!

Wix’s SEO Hero Contest – is it worth a look?

As SEO becomes an increasingly popular topic, it comes as no surprise that Wix.com decided to run a competition to put their SEO capabilities in the spotlight. With a $50,000 prize, Wix is competing against SEO professionals to rank first for the search term “SEO Hero”. If you would like to learn a little bit more about how you can rank on search engines like Google and Bing, check out this Quick and Dirty Overview I made in the past. There are only two more months of the competition, and it will be interesting to see whether anyone will be able to outrank Wix.wix logos

Impression of the site

Upon first impression of the site I was feeling a little bit overwhelmed with all of the superhero references. I’m personally not such a big fan, so I didn’t really understand all of the jokes. But, I decided to check out some of the blog posts and I found quite a few interesting things. There are topics ranging from outreach approaches to optimizing featured snippets, and generally they are well researched and informative pieces.

Featured Snippets

Personally, I thought that the article about snippets was well written. Snippets can be a very useful way to provide necessary information immediately. In the article, Wix mentions that it’s not always the big companies that dominate the snippets – which means that there is an opportunity for smaller businesses to rank. Additionally, you can essentially rank twice through the use of snippets. Once for the actual snippet, and then also lower in the search results with your website.

Studies also show that people are more trusting of the information that they read in a snippet, which may lead to higher click through rates on the website. Keep in mind, that if people are more trusting of the information in the snippet, it is critical to write direct and concise answers.

Closing Thoughts

There are some informative articles on Wix’s SEO Hero site, and they are worth taking a read through. However, majority of the information there is more suitable for those who already have some experience with SEO. I wouldn’t recommend trying to use the site as a beginner’s guide. Specifically, the quiz is quite challenging, so don’t feel too discouraged if you don’t get most of the answers correct.  I’m going to be keeping an eye on the competition, as I am interested to know what the results will be. If you want to learn more about beginner’s SEO, take a look through some of the articles that I have written. After you get started with my articles, you can move onto some of the more advanced articles on Wix’s SEO page.
