TIPS & TOOLS

If you are wanting to build your own website, and you don't want to start with a complete system like Kajabi, then I recommend you use Wordpress. I personally never recommend Wix or any of those other 'easy' sites but the choice is yours.

 

BUY A DOMAIN NAME & HOST YOUR OWN WEBSITE

Get your business up and running with these amazing deals NameCheap.com. They have cheap and reliable hosting plus you can buy your domain names there - I've used them for years now!

You will need to buy a domain name (ie. www.yourname.com) and preferably you get your own wordpress site hosting

Alternatively there is  https://wordpress.com/  - which you can start for free, without the need of paying for hosting (or your own space) on the internet. There are a lot of limitations with this but at least you can get started.
