In the next 10 minutes I'm going to prove
to you that it's possible to make a website very easily for your business, blog, or eCommerce
website. That's right folks this is ground-breaking,
because its so easy these days to create a website by creating a template and using drag
and drop to customize our website layout to make it look exactly how you want. You're looking at it right here. You'll see other videos on YouTube demonstrating
how to make a website with WordPress, with Shopify, with SquareSpace, but I'm going to
show you a different and more efficient method if you don't have hours to spend. Stick with me to the end folks because I'm
going to give you a special bonus that's going to make it even easier to finish your website
before you go to sleep tonight, and I won't put that in the description, so you'll just
have to watch til the end.
You're looking at the final product right
here so let's start making this website in the next ten minutes. The very first thing you need to do is scroll
down, and under this videos there's a description, click on the link in the description that
takes you to our eMediaCoach site. It's our checklist, or one-page cheat sheet. Anything that's helpful for you we will add
to this section here. So just go to this page and click on one of
the links to get a free Wix Account.
Or you can click on that link directly in
the description below. But the key is you need to land on this page
with the hikers on it. If you don't hit this page here you're going
to be stuck and confused for the rest of this tutorial. So I'll give you a second, click on one of
the links on the description and get to this page. Once you've done that click Start Now, Sign
Up for a new account, click Sign Up.
You're going to get a welcome email in your
email inbox but check your spam as well just in case it ends up there, if it does right-click
and mark as 'Not Junk' because they will send you some important info in the further, So
hit Sign Up when you're ready. That will take you to this page. Oka let's do it. Actually click the Skip button down here,
we're going to go straight into our dashboard. We want to use Wix ADI, we don' want to use
ADI is the quickest way to make a website. Enter the type of business that you have,
and this works for anyone from a restaurant to a consultancy to a freelancer to a designer,
any type of business. Let's just enter something in. And go Next. You've got a few more options, click any that
Add your business name. You can enter your address if you want to
or just Skip and do that later. Then you'll be asked to pick a style. This is a color scheme. You can change this later but lets click or
select a color scheme for now.
Once you've done that it'll give you a couple
of options to choose from, select one that you like. So, let's try this one. This is of course changeable in the future,
nothing is set in stone. So there you go, there you have a ready built
template that you can start managing. You can hit the Publish button.
Publish and Continue. And you can actually view your website. This is actually currently live to the real
world. Now here is how to customize your website. This is a basic theme or template but you
can customize any one of these modules in the way they all look and function.
Under 'Design;' you can change the Theme,
you can change the colors associated with the design, you can change fonts, and also
different layouts. So let's take this one for examples this bug
image. If I click on that I'll be able to disable
the title from showing, or show that title, show a description, or disable that subtitle
or perhaps even edit and replace that image. If I press replace here you can upload an
image from your computer by uploading images by clicking this button here, or you can select
a free image from Wix, and what you can do is come in here, search for something related
to your business. So lets say its food.
And you can add that, and Apply. Beautiful, that looks great! Now say you want to change the color of text,
hover over the text, hover over that thing there and change the color. Simple as that. Perfect. Very cool indeed.
So you can enable and disable modules like
that. You can also add a button and you can link
that button. So you can add a link to anywhere you want
or any page or any web address that you want. Usually it'll be a page on your website such
as 'Your Services/ Obviously this is just an example. Each module that you see here is not set in
You can click on that module and you can go
to 'Designs'. You can customize the color, the text settings
and other stuff, and also here are all the other possible layouts for this particular
module. You’ve got so many options. So let’s say we want that grid looking layout
there. Boom, done! Now we can click on that and edit the text,
to anything you want.
So as you can see is its completely customizable. What we're using here is a template and customizing
that template. We can even click the + icon here and we can
add a new module. For example, lets add some photo galleries. Let’s go to Gallery, Photo Gallery, and
let’s add this thing there.
Now you can edit that gallery by clicking
on that and replacing the media in that particular gallery by dragging and dropping like you
see there. You've also got the option to change the layout
of things like the Contact area. If you click on Designs you'll see a few different
options for the layout. So select one that you like. Perfect.
Now going back up, if you want to change the
look of your header area, click on that, and you'll be able to show or hide a logo. So you can Edit and Replace, click Replace,
and upload a logo from your computer. That logo will upload, you click Done, you
click Apply, and that gets shown over there. If I click on that area again I can remove
this business name so it doesn’t look messy. And important I can also change the layout
of this whole header area.
So clicking on that, clicking on Designs,
here are the options I've got. A big logo like that with the menu over here,
something like this, or perhaps in the middle. So maybe I'll try that. Very cool! Of course any time you want you can Publish
and view your website. For finishing touches I’m going to add a
couple of new modules.
I might add a 'Clients' section. Let’s throw that in there. Perfect. And I night also add some Testimonials. So let’s see…
I think this one here looks quite good so
I'll throw that in there. So there we go, we've got a few more modules
added to our website, and it looks really good. The next thing I’ll need to show you is
how to ad a new page. Go to Add, Add a New Page, you can choose
from a pre-built template such as an About page and you can choose one of the About designs,
or you can choose from the Contact Page and one of the Contact Page layout designs with
the map potentially. Or something like 'Clients' that you’ve
very very cool. Just click on that, and that'll add a New
Page and that page will appear in this dropdown over here. And if you want to rearrange your menu over
here all you need to do is drag and drop like this and that will change the layout of your
menu as you start adding more pages to your website. So as you can see it's very easy to make a
website and it doesn’t have to take long or it doesn’t have to be complicated. You can edit any new page in the same way
you edited the homepage by clicking on any particular module, replacing images, selecting
or deselecting elements that you want or don’t want to appear, or clicking on Designs, and
changing the Layout based on all the pre-built options available to you.
Now I need to go through an important piece
in this video. Right now when you Publish it comes up with
a dirty looking URL over here. The reason is you need to Upgrade. If you’re a real business and you want your
website to make money for you – remember your website is not an expense and it should be
a revenue generator – click on 'Upgrade', you'll see a few different plans. Most of them will be in the range of about
$10-$12 USD a month.
I recommend this one here, Combo, or the Unlimited. This one here displays ads so it’s not ideal. The Combo is good enough for now, it has a
low bandwidth and storage, but you may get away with it in the short term. This one you may get away with in the long
term, it's perfect So if you want, choose one of these, choose one you are comfortable
with based on the features but I really recommend you go-live ASAP. Because once you go lice, Google will start
indexing your URL and your website plus you will have your own domain so it wont look
like this – it will look like this (yourbusienss.com).
It will be professional and you will be able
to use it in all your marketing material. And again, your website needs to be making
you money, it’s a revenue generator not an expense. So I highly recommend you upgrade straight
away. When you go into the Wix dashboard by clicking
here, click on Site, and go to the Site dashboard. And if you scroll down here you'll see that
there is a section that will help you get your own domain, get you found on Google,
and these features are really only available to take advantage of once you've got your
own business web address.
Once you’ve got that Google will start indexing
your website. For example 'Accountants in Florida'. People will be able to find you, contact you,
find your website , contact you via the form. Or you can also add your phone number in one
of these sections as well, you'll get more business coming to you. But the key is to give Google time to index
your website It doesn’t happen overnight, it takes a couple of weeks to happen if not
a month to happen.
So you really need to start publishing your
website straightaway. So there you go, I've given you an instructional
video on how to make a website in under 10 minutes and I bet you didn’t think it was
as easy or seamless or intuitive as that. And your business will reap the benefits of
all of that regardless if you’re a freelancer, a contractor, a business that has a physical
storefront, an eCommerce store. Now like I promised I was going to give you
a bonus at the end of this video now here it is – if you go to the eMediaCoach sure
that’s in the description below, just add a -bonus to it. Go to that URL.
There’s going to be a form on that page
– if you get stuck with anything to do with building your Wix website we will build or
help you with that. So fill out that form on that page that comes
up, I'll set that up later I haven’t got it ready now, we will personally help you

It won't cost anything to build your website, you just need a Free Wix account. Go through this link to start on same page as us on the video –
Step 2: Select your Website Design and Color Scheme
You need to use the Wix ADI function (not the Wix Editor function). The wizard will run you through the steps to choosing your business name, selecting a color scheme, and selecting a website template. Everything you choose here is changeable so don't worry!
To change the template or color scheme at any time, just go to the 'Design' dropdown.
Personally, I like to add all the page modules and text and images, and then come back to the template and color scheme and choose one that suits the website perfectly 🙂
Step 3: Edit modules
When you click on any module on the page, you will see a sidebar pop out from the left. Here you can edit text, enable or disable elements you want to show or hide, or hover over text to edit color.
Step 4: Add new modules
By hovering your mouse over your template, you will see a 'plus' icon. Clicking on that will allow you to select a cool looking pre-built module to add to your website. You can select from the type of module, as well as the layout.
Step 5: Create new pages
You can add an unlimited number of new pages to your website. You can choose from several pre-built page layouts. Once you create a new page, yo can edit individual modules on it in the exact same way we did for the homepage.
