What is a Website Builder?

WordPress or Blogger are website builders.  They use what is known as content management system (CMS).


This means that a person with average internet skills can set up a website with minimal skills.  If fact a lot of website builders will allow you to use their product for free.

So you do not need to know how to program or code, you can basically just click and go

When you have practised with a free one, then it is time to move on to a paid website and a paid theme.

To build a website requires you to think of a niche.  A product or service you love and are good with to create a website.

Part of creating a good website is looking at lots of websites in your niche to see which you like the most and which one will be easy enough for you to create on your own.  You are not looking to copy someone else's ideas but just to get your creative juices going.

There are many things that will attract people to your site.

The main attraction is content.  If you write compelling stories or reviews you will get more results.  You are the audience you need to please.

Trust me if you are happy with your work and you would buy from your site, there will be others with your viewpoint.

Setting up a website is very easy, it doesn't require a degree in rocket science.  It does require a bit of patience and following a few tutorials.  Here is a video on how to build a website in 30 seconds on Wealthy Affiliate:
