Is it time to get your business online?

Maybe you’re putting it off because you don’t know where to start.

Creating your own online presence can be daunting with domain names, hosting services and the design element to think about.

Possibly the most simple and cost effective way to get started is with the Google my Business website builder.

If you don’t have the time and resources to create a website yourself and you are interested in a website builder, let’s take a look.

This is a good starting point, it’s free, your business is online and allows customers to contact you. However it’s simple and limits how much you can do. So if you’re after something with all the bells and whistles, this might not be for you.

  1. Create a Google My Business listing. Once you have clicked on the “Get a free website based on your info” button, you will be directed to Google’s website builder.
  2. Choose a colour theme
  3. Choose a “primary” button. This is where you decide what the main thing you want your customers to do is. Do you want your customers to call you, get a quote or make an appointment? You can choose from any of the options. Depending on what you choose, this will direct your customers to how they can reach you.
  4. Continue to fill in the information, personalise your site and add photos. Add as much or as little as you like, remember the idea is to tell your story.
  5. Once you are verified, you can ask your customers to leave you a positive feedback on google. These positive reviews will then be automatically displayed on your google website.
