How To Create a Website in less than 5 minutes!


Hello. This is Tony Messer here at Pickaweb.
I’m just going to show you very quickly today how easy it is to create a really professional
website and I’m going to do it in less than five minutes. I know it sounds amazing but
this is using our Website Builder Tool. So without further ado, let’s get cracking. So I’m going to choose this section here,
professional consultants and all you need to do is just choose the template that you
like the look of. I’m going to choose this one here. You choose your template. That will
then appear on the screen for you and you can start to make some changes to it, very
easy to do. You can change color. I’m happy with this color. We’ll leave this as it
is. Change images. You can choose from the gallery of pre-made, pre-specified images.
So in this case, let’s just choose this couple here and so we’re going to create
a little sort of plumbing website. Now here, you just click on “Change title”
and give the page a name so we call it The Plumbing Company. Then we can change the actual
little logo that appears here. Again, just select “Change title” and we can put in
something there, “24 Hour Call Out – Best Rates”. That’s what plumbers normally
say, isn’t it? So there we are. That changes that there. Finally we just want to change up here. You
can see you’ve got a field where you can put your email address in. So let’s just
put [email protected] Submit that. OK. So what we’re going to do now is we’re
just going to select that template. So we click on this. Select this template and all
that remains now is if you want to add some extra pages, we can just for example add an
About Us page and the Services page. It would just generate a couple of blank pages. They
will be exactly the same layout with all the text in it. All we need to do now is add your
text. So let’s go into the homepage and just quickly do that. So I click on “Edit” to edit the homepage.
I’ve got some prepared text so I’m just going to copy that and now we’re going to
edit the text and we’re about halfway through where we need to be. So we just highlight
that and up here, it’s a bit like using a normal Word processing tool. You see all
this sort of normal icons there and we just paste in the text that we have. Insert that.
There we are and then again, you can just change. For example, you can change the styles.
Let’s change the font size here to 18 because that’s our main headline. We can put a bullet
point in here and just click on that. We can create links to other websites or to
other pages within our own website. So what we do is highlight the text, click on “Link”
and then what we’re going to do is we’re just going to link to the About Us page. They
asked us to confirm that. There we are. I’ve just created a link there. So what we do now
is we just preview the changes and approve it. So we’ve added our text now and then
it will ask us if you want to edit the other pages and all you do is just repeat that.
Just go in and add your text as required. So all that remains now is we’re going to
publish the website and to do that really is easy. You just select “Publish”. There
we are. Click on that. Now that will take a moment or two so I’m just going to temporarily
pause the presentation one moment. OK. Then once it’s published, we get a message
just confirming that. So if we go and have a quick look, we can see that it has been
published. There we are. Now, that took just over four minutes from start to finish. We
can see the website. There’s the text that I highlighted. There’s the little link there
that takes us to the About page so quite a nice, neat and tidy website. Now the thing is that with Website Builder,
it’s an amazing tool. It has got loads of features in there. You can put Google Analytics.
You can even build an online shop and accept payments with PayPal. It’s so easy to use,
really, really easy to use and it comes free with all of our web hosting packages at Pickaweb.co.uk.
OK? Thanks very much then. That’s all for today. Bye-bye.

    You mention an 'online shop' but having recently built a website in this programme I am unable to get any correct information on HOW to get the 'buy now' buttons to work for my individual items. PLEASE do a tutorial on exactly HOW we are supposed to get this facility to WORK!!!!!!
