Hiring someone

- Contact Us
- Disclaimer/copyright.

Make your content high quality

You need your website to be found and the best way of doing this is through SEO. Make sure you include this in a good way - you may need to hire a consultant to do this exceptionally well.

Look for web hosting sites

You will need a hosting site to be able to host your new website. This could be something that you should consider earlier on because there are some that will offer both website building and hosting. There are many different hosting companies and you will need to find the best one for your small online business. Here are a few questions that you should ask yourself: - Do you need managed hosting?
