A Tale of Two Websites (Plus One)
Once upon a time, I had a beautiful website. But it was only an online gallery, and didn’t sell my artwork. It was too complicated and didn’t have an online shop. It was not connected to social media, and it was nowhere on the search engines.
Then I met a “website designer”, and had an aha! moment… I really needed to improve my website. All that was needed was to add an online shop, SEO, and social media. He insisted on completely redesigning my website. What followed was a disaster!!! Weeks passed, nothing happened, then the homepage appeared with an online shop, containing photos of cameras, bugs, and flowers, each priced at about £1,000. It only got worse. Following several emails, in which the “designer” threatened to destroy the website, and damage my social media, but I finally got a refund. I decided to have a go myself, and changed the passwords.
I discovered that my domain name and website had been hacked. In addition, the hosting moved to Eastern Europe. So I restored an old version, and proceed with the new website.
After two weeks’ work, my first attempt bombed, but I retrieved a previous version. The second attempt totally bombed the website. The hosting company didn’t have the resources to update WordPress or any of the plugins without bombing the site yet again.
So I decided to build the website myself. I found the best hosting company on the planet, who could set up a WordPress WooCommerce site, and provide support online and by phone. I transferred my domain name, with the help and support of the new hosting company. Their affiliate company provides amazing WordPress themes, and their support line helped me to find the best theme for my online business.
This was followed by weeks of work rebuilding my website, which is still a work in progress. With the awesome support of the hosting company, and lots of YouTube videos, there is the beginning of a fantastic website. I have also signed up for WP Live, which helps with more complicated issues.
It’s been an exciting journey, and a very steep learning curve. I’m so impressed by these companies, that I have become an affiliate marketer for both. I can help you to achieve a brilliant new website that will reflect your business and personality, make a big difference to your business and most of all will be profitable, whatever your business sector.
