And of course, I’m going to tell you only use other websites as inspiration and please don’t try to simply replicate what someone else has done. There’s no need to feel like you have to all of this extra features and fluff if you’re just really needing something more simple! Let go of outer expectations, and create your own- right from the very beginning.
Take Action & Make Decisions
Once you get going, you’ll find there’s lots of decisions that have to be made. Everything from design decisions like what kinds of fonts and colors will you use, what do you want your buttons to look like, what should your headers and footers look like, to back end decisions like what kind of hosting do you need, security decisions, plug-ins and theme, and payment portals. Do your research, but do not get stuck here as it’s so easy to do. Obviously this is probably not your forte of knowledge or skill, so learn what you can, weight the options, and just make a decision. If down the road it’s not working for you, you can absolutely readjust. Just. Keep. Going.
When you’re deep in the creation of your website, you may never feel TOTALLY ready to launch. Set a date and then build towards what’s do-able to create, finesse, and polish to be able to launch. You may need to release some of your prior expectations. But just remember, the most important part is having something beautiful out there that people can start viewing and looking through to find you/your business.
