As Zig Ziglar says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”
In the spirit of this philosophy, dream chaser and author of the book, No Limits: How I Escaped the Clutches of Corporate America to Live the Self-Employed Life of My Dreams, Sara Morgan, has created a guide called “Do It Yourself Web Design with Templates”, which she is offering to all of us for free. Alternatively if you have a site that you’re wanting to look professional, so you think you should leave it up to the professionals to do so get in touch with a web design agency such as IdeaZone. Just on a side-note, really consider hiring someone local to yourself – it is very important to get to meet the person you’re hiring so you can properly discuss the finer details of your proposed website. If you’re struggling on who to hire, follow this link to find a digital agency in your city.
A Microsoft-certified web developer, Sara got the idea for this how-to guide while promoting her book. She discovered there were a lot of smart people who needed to establish a professional web site but had little money with which to do it. This guide is the result of her determination to empower more people to realize their dreams. Initially, she planned on charging $25 for the guide, but then decided the best thing to do was just give it away for free. “What I want most of all is to help,” Sara says, “and I know by giving it away for free, I am able to help so many more people.”
I downloaded my copy this morning and was surprised to find that Sara’s guide is 137 pages of information on everything from how to select and register a domain name to understanding search engine optimization. Knowing as much as you can about search engine optimization (SEO) can be very beneficial to your online business and website, there are different SEO strategies for businesses to use such as off page seo where you advertise away from your own website to help with your rankings. To be honest, I’m pretty shocked it’s free (but I’m not complaining!). Remember that once you’ve made your website though, you’ll need a host to put it online. A quick Google shows www.hostiserver.com, which seems to be highly rated, but there’s lots of options on the market.

Thanks, Sara, for sharing the wealth and helping us navigate the confusing waters of web design!
