1. Pick up your phone and get a “Test Client”.

When I began my web design journey, I had already committed to creating a website for a company (Yes, before even knowing how).

This made it impossible for me to quit or leave the project.

How to find a Test Client.

The quote “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse” comes in handy here.

Whether it’s for your sister’s company, your friend’s barber, or the restaurant just across the street, it doesn’t matter. Just say: “Hey, do you need a website?”

2. Say Hi to WordPress

What is WordPress and why should I use it?

It’s currently one of the best options out there to design/develop a website. But why?

  • Easy to Use.
  • Lots of Themes and Plugins to do anything you want.
  • SEO-Friendly.
  • Lots of tutorials and content out there.
  • Regular Updates and Enhanced Security

Basically, WordPress has no limits.

3. Set up the Hosting and WordPress

Simply put, a website is just a bunch of files that need to be stored somewhere.

While you could store these files on your personal computer, it would limit access to only yourself.

This is where hosting comes in.

The Hosting is the server where you store your website so anybody can access it online.

For now, you can set up a Local Server for free.

Here’s a great video you can use:

By now, you should have WordPress installed on your Local Server
