Building a Website

After completing the Brainstorming step, you are now ready to build your own website from scratch. This phase includes everything that is related to building and publishing a website and can be done on a parallel with other steps, as well. In other words, next steps such as Marketing and Monetizing can be already merged with this step and monitored from now on. 

Building a website should also be based on previous steps. So, you are going to create your own web pages assuming you have researched the market well and found a niche about your desired topic. At this point, you have basically 4 essential steps in front of you. Some of them are one-time actions and the others should be consistently done during the process. In fact, this step is the most determinant phase of your online business.

1. Registering a Domain Name:

The very first step of the Building phase is registering a domain name. Your own domain name is the name of your business or brand. It is the URL address of your website that cannot be changed. So, this action is a one-time action. You have to register a good domain name that reflects your business or brand in a good manner. At least, your domain name should contain your keywords or key-phrases.

2. Getting a Web Hosting Plan:

Next, you should select a web hosting service and get a plan that enables you to host your website on your domain name. A web hosting service gives you the opportunity to upload and publish every kind of file versions you want to have on your site directory and sub-directories.

3. Designing Your Website:

After buying a domain name and a hosting account, you will have to design your own web pages and build your website layout. Headlines, Menus, Navigation Bars, Links and Graphics are a few examples you should think about. At this point, you will publish your web pages on your domain name and upload different files to your hosting server.

4. Creating & Publishing Content:

Actually, this step along with the step 3 can be done in parallel. The content is the main component of your own website and the only element that your audience is looking for. Creating and publishing high-quality content will give value to its readership and develops relationship between the website owner and its visitors.

Like I said before, building a website is not a separate step in the whole process. Rather, it can be combined with other steps, as well and, in some ways, be improved all the time. In the next posts, each and every one of the above-mentioned steps will be explained more deeply.

Actually, brainstorming a website allows you to set a frame for your future efforts. In this phase, you will come up with different ideas, various business models, special plans, market research and hot niches. The main goal of this step is to find a suitable niche market based on your topic and business model. Believe it or not, without this step, your project will ultimately fail. So, bear in mind that the more you pay attention to this step and the more better you do your job, the more successful your website will be.

So, in order to carefully brainstorm a website and choose a winner topic in the market, you have to follow 4 important steps:

1. Idea Generating:

This is the core of your project. In this step, you will have to think deeply, ask yourself some questions, set your goals, come up with a number of ideas and generate one of them as the main topic of your future website. The gained data is raw and you have to narrow it down later. Besides, in this step, you should choose your business model and lay out your website on that specific model.

2. Planning:

Honestly, without a clear plan, you won´t get anywhere. You have to be organized and set your plans.

This step is the most time-consuming part of your brainstorming process. You should be too careful and accurate in this phase. It is not based on guess and imagination. You have to research the market about the idea and topic you are going to work on and find out if it is worth it or not. You should figure out how much demand and supply there is for that particular topic and if the market is profitable or not.

4. Niche Finding:

It is the last step of brainstorming phase and is the result of your previous activities. After researching the market, you should be able to find a hot niche, a profitable segment of the whole market about your particular topic. Your niche market should be in high demand and low supply.
