You know, they say starting is the biggest step. So you made the right decision
But, before we can start, we need to go over a few things you need in order to follow along with the webinar.
You can find any tutorials or links you may need to get started for each item in the link below. So feel free to jump into the before we start checklist & let’s get through this so we can jump into the webinar.
Before We Start Checklist: https://webdesignwebinar.com/before-we-start
For now, the first thing you need is a working email address.
The second thing and one of the most important is a secure password.
The next item on the list is a working credit card. We discussed the $120 cost in the intro video and that is what this is for.
For now, we need to talk about a massive mistake that a lot of people make when getting started. Naming your business. OK, it’s not really naming a business as much as it is the brand or “handle” that your business uses online.
Of course, there is more to finding a good username like making sure you can get the .com domain and checking for availability on social media. This can take some time but if you follow along with the training linked below I’ve covered everything you need to know
Once you have a unique username you will then need a logo. You can use software to design it yourself or you can hire a designer. There are many different options linked to, inside the training. If you need it please take advantage of it.
For the website, we will need a png or “transparent” logo file that is no more than 360 pixels wide.
Moving down the list, the next thing we have is your website icon. This is the image that shows up in the tabs of your browser.
The image should be a 512px square image. In the icon training, I have a free template for you if you need it.
While we will have a section in the webinar for your tagline, I know it is something that evolves over time especially when we’re starting out. If you already have one, great! If you don’t, don’t worry. You can go through that training later and update your site when the time is right.
Now, let’s discuss Your Content. This can be prepped before you start with the webinar or as I said earlier you can use placeholders. Don’t worry if you are not a writer because there are ghostwriters out there that can take some basic information from you and turn it into amazing content for your website.
I’ve listed a link below to an evolving page designated to your overall website content. The information on the link is extremely detailed and links out to many other blog posts and training but we will cover the basics inside of the webinar.
Next on the list is a license for the page builder we are going to use. It’s called Elementor and there are two parts to it. The free version, which gives you the basic framework and the Pro version which allows you to basically build and design your own WordPress theme with its custom theme builder.
This is how we are going to design our header and footer. It also comes with an amazing form builder for your contact page and moving forward after the webinar I’ll show you how you can use It to build your list and a bunch of other stuff.
To get your licensed copy of Elementor Pro, all you need to do is go to BuyProLink.com.
