How to create a website with a blog and build your personal brand online?
You will learn how to create a website step by step and start a blog ready for blogging and then build your brand online.
You can see how I created my personal site at https://www.clickdo.co.uk/blogging-course/ and everything is documented below for you with the exact step by step plan. So there is nothing stopping you from getting online today.
I intend to build the website https://www.fernandoraymond.com/ to be successful by generating me leads, helping me build my brand online, selling my products and services and becoming a digital asset.
I have already got the basic pages live on 17.07.2019 on https://www.fernandoraymond.com/ and as of 18.07.2019, the website is indexed by Google, meaning that it can show in search results now.
I’m going after the keywords “digital strategist”, “digital marketing strategist” “online marketing experts” with my domain.
The above terms will help me build my authority online, get leads for consultancy and become the greatest digital marketing strategist in the world.
You can see how the site was built on this page https://www.clickdo.co.uk/blogging-course/ as I documented it all until it went live.
Once you have set up your basic home page, you will have to think about your main menu and the pages you want to add. As I’m going after the keywords “digital strategist”, “digital marketing strategist” “online marketing experts” with my domain, my pages and the content on them will have to reflect this. Therefore, I have planned the following menu:
New web pages I build to add to my site menu:
Page: Get Online
- Create a website
- Start a blog
- Blogging tips
- Build your brand
- Make money blogging
Page: Digital Marketing
- PPC Google AdWords
- Social Media Advertising
- Content Marketing
- Conversion Optimization
Each of the above pages will be strategically filled with perfectly written content to help with the SEO and eventually rank on Google. For this you will have to research relevant keywords for each page, but that’s not all.
You will have to write the web content and related blog articles including those keywords, but you will also have to use them for the on-page SEO, metadata for your images and your advertisements, even videos you upload on YouTube.
Once the above pages are done, I will initially run Google ads for the website and then do Facebook remarketing for the people who visited my website.
I will have a compelling offer like “learn how to start a blog” on this page https://www.fernandoraymond.com/how-to-start-ablog/ and send traffic to it through Google ads. So, people who come there will learn to start a blog/site and then some may visit other pages and get to know fernandoraymond.com very well including everything I offer.
What needs to be done:
Install Facebook pixel on the website and that will be done by Dinesh Kumar at ClickDo. You can email him via firstname.lastname@example.org for support and get it done or learn via Skype by booking him for an online tutorial call.
Once all the pages are live I will implement the internal linking as shown in the blogging course https://www.clickdo.co.uk/blogging-course/
If you still haven’t started a website or blog, you can get your domain name at https://www.seekahost.com/ and email me to get a free personal web hosting plan if it’s your first website/blog or you have financial issues to get started.
