After I graduated I had no clue what I wanted to do. I couldn’t seem to find a job which suited me – but hey, I need to pay rent!
That’s when I decided to take one of my hobbies a bit more serious. Webdesign.
Over the past few years I had been playing around making websites for friends – all based on Youtube tutorials. I decided to go all-in on webdesign. Best decision ever.
Today, 5 years (and many websites) later, I think I kind of figured out how to build solid websites FAST.
Websites you can easily sell for $3000 or more. 🤓

THE BORING PART
I assume you want your website to be visited by thousands of people around the world. Or at least one person that’s not you 😅
That’s why you need to publish your website on the world wide web. You can do this by getting a hosting company to publish your website. Over the past 5 years I’ve tried dozens of hosting companies.
Why did I switch that much? Because many of them suck.
Many web hosting companies are only after your money and don’t care if your website gets hacked or has bugs. Sure, they’ll look into it – for a few hundred bucks.
But one of them caught my attention.
Here’s how you get started:
- Pick a domain name
Open up tab (1) – publishing your website to the world.
Figure out a cool name for your website.
- Pick a hosting plan
I’d recommend starting with the cheapest package. It will allow you to host up to 5 websites – at no extra costs!
- Install WordPress
Once you have your hosting plan, you can install WordPress with 1 click.
WordPress is a content management system which allows you to build a website. Over 75 million websites are built with WordPress worldwide. It’s free – and awesome!
Now you’re ready to publish your website to the world, it’s time to get you all set up.
You’re lucky that it’s 2019.
It’s time to go to the second tab I asked you to open:
This tool is a top notch drag and drop website builder. I’ve started using it 2 years ago, and I’m never going back.
It allows you to build a website using a drag and drop website builder. It’s easy and very intuitive – even people with ZERO web design skills will have an easy time creating something cool.
That’s right, they’re doing the hard part for you.
Still not convinced? A few more reasons why I use this tool every day:
- Easy drag and drop website builder
- Real time design
- Fully mobile responsive
- Easy to adjust templates
Try it yourself. You’ll love it!
SPY THE COMPETITION
I’m not sure what type of website you’re planning to build (or sell). It could be a:
In any way, I’ve got some good news for you.
You don’t have to figure out what your website should look like all by yourself. Have a look at websites who are similar to the one you’re planning to build.
Check out at least 10 websites and write down the things you like – and don’t like. This will help you to create a slick design in just a few hours.
To get you started, I’ve created an overview of have a look at these free templates.
WRITE YOUR TEXTS
By now you should have an idea what your website is going to look like.
Now it’s time to write the texts you can put on your website. How you should go about this depends on who the website is for.
Is it a website for a client? Ask them to write the texts for their website. Are you building a website for yourself? Or is your client lazy? 😉 Write the texts yourself!
Again, look at the texts of similar websites for some inspiration.
Now your texts are ready, it’s time to get some appealing images. Adding a few high quality images on your website instantly improves the look & feel of your design!
I do have a small warning for you..
Don’t simply download images from Google. I’ve had friends who did this, and got fined a few months later. Make sure your images are royalty free.
Here are a few sources for high quality royalty free images:
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for.
It’s time to build your website! If you’ve followed the instructions so far, you should have this tab opened in your screen:
Now I can go ahead and bore you with a big manual of how this tool works. But I’d be wasting your time.
This tool is so intuitive – even people with limited computer skills will be able to build a page in no time.
To get a feeling of how this tool works, have a look at these 4 tutorials. They’re brilliant.
I imagine you’d want to keep this guide for future reference. That’s why I created a PDF for you.
I hope you liked this guide. If you did, you would help me a lot by sharing this through Facebook or Linkedin.
It would help me a lot – and it will help others too.
Thanks a lot!
