Every small business or organisation needs a website, whether it is a simple online portfolio or a complex online shop. Expert web design teacher Alannah Moore makes this subject accessible for everyone, even those with no technical or design experience. Avoiding technical language, Alannah provides a summary of the web platforms available, covering, among others, WordPress, Squarespace, Weebly and Shopify. From these the reader can choose the right platform for them, and very quickly get up and running. Drawing on her vast experience of what a novice website builder really needs to know, Alannah covers all the topics they will come across in their online experience: how to choose a good domain name; what content you need for your site; how to work with images and even create your own logo. The reader will also learn how to integrate social media and a blog, so they are set up and in control of their virtual presence from every aspect. This is the perfect book for anyone who doesn't want to pay for an expensive web designer. In Alannah's safe and capable hands, they will find the process of building their site easy and enjoyable, and they'll soon have a successful online presence.
