Here's how to get started.

Okay, so you're looking for some inspiring easy website designs. Or maybe need some inspiring templates?
Perhaps you already have a design in mind, and you’re just looking for a easy website builder. In any case...
You came to the right place. See, many people who need a easy website invest a lot of money to get one. They hire extremely expensive web designers who often build low-quality websites. Although I'm not blaming anybody, I have a better idea for you.
Build it yourself. On this page, you'll find clear instructions on how to do it – even if you don't have any experience. I'll recommend you a couple of tools that I trust and use myself. If you decide to purchase a tool I recommend, I get a small commission at no extra cost to you.

Checklist: 5 ways to make your easy website beautiful and highly converting

1. Don’t break the 5-second rule

The moment a visitor lands on your website you only have 5 seconds to make a good impression.

That’s 5 short seconds to convince your visitor to stay on your website – and don’t hit the back button.

Make sure the text on your website is appealing and gets your visitor excited. Don’t waste the first 5 seconds of somebody’s visit with unnecessary fluff.

2. Don’t confuse your visitor with too many call to actions

Great call to actions draw the attention of your visitors.

That said, you don’t want your call to action buttons fighting for the attention of your visitor. Pick the most important call to action for that page, and go with it.

In case you want to show multiple call to actions anyway, make sure to give them a different design, with your primary call to action being the most notable one.

3. Design mobile-first

Last year over 52% of all the website traffic worldwide came from mobile devices.

More than half of the website visits are on a mobile device.

This percentage will only increase in the coming years, therefore the mobile design of your website is crucial for the success of your website.

When designing your website, think about mobile design before you build your desktop website.

4. Watch people using your website without telling them what to do

Once your website is ready it’s time to launch. Well, almost.

Invite some friends or colleagues and put them in front of a computer. Ask them to pretend to be potential customers and have them visit your website.

Now sit next to them, and don’t say anything (this will be harder than you think).

Do this with at least 5 people and learn from their behavior:

  • Did they follow the steps you expected them to?
  • Did your website load fast enough?
  • Was everything clear to them?

5. Collect real testimonials from real members

By now you probably realized social proof is extremely important when it comes to building a great website. Take it to the next level, and add testimonials from your members.

Don’t write them yourself, don’t ask your friends to write them. Everybody will feel something is off.

Want to go for the perfect score? Include video testimonials. Trust me, this will turn your website into a conversion machine.

Growth hacking: 3 powerful strategies to promote your easy website

1. Go viral with a viral give-away

Imagine.

You send your website to 5 friends. Who each sends it to 5 friends.

Now, these friends also send it to 5 friends.  Oh la la! Continue this loop for a while, and your website is actually going viral.

Viral Loops is a referral marketing tool that helps you to explode your website with new visitors.

We’ve used Viral Loops to create virality with multiple websites. It allows you to build a sustainable referral scheme that helps you to grow your website rapidly.

2. Use local SEO

SEO is a great way to attract local clients. SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization and helps you to get free website traffic through search engines.

Check out these articles about local SEO if you want to learn more about this:

3. Do a press release

Yikes! A press release? That’s not for your website, right?

Well. It is actually. Journalists LOVE small businesses and the entrepreneurs behind them. It makes sense – if you’re at a birthday party, friends are probably always asking how your business is doing.

Everybody loves entrepreneurs.

Write a press release about a milestone your company achieved. It doesn’t really matter what it is your company did, just make it juicy and interesting.

Create a list of journalists and reach out to them. The key in this process is the follow-up. If you’re just sending them just one email you’re probably not going to have a lot of success. Remind them at least once within a period of 7 days.

Being featured by local news outlets actually is good for your SEO. The more websites mentioning you on their website, the higher you’ll rank in the search engine.
