Marketing on a website
Companies wishing to provide a service or sell a product can no longer survive without a website as this is usually the first place prospective buyers will go to view the company and their offerings.
That’s all great but it can be expensive to employ someone or use the services of a professional to create and maintain your own website.

But all that has changed and now you do not need any IT experience or knowledge to own a home based online business. So in this article, I will hopefully show you the best way to build your own website,
There are different platforms to use for your websites such as WordPress or Joomla and any option is really down to your own preference
I prefer to use WordPress as I find it to be user-friendly and allows for multiple plugins which enhance the site for the visitors’ experience. I manage my website through Wealthy Affiliate.
