I'm planning to start a website building service. I'd like to start as soon as I can, and I'll be doing it at no charge. It doesn't matter if you are an individual, company or charity, I will build a website for you for free.
It will be a website that you actually own, where anything can be sold, banners and affiliate links can be placed anywhere. A blog space without any restrictions. You will be the registered owner of your site, so it will not be completely free; you'll have to pay for (a) a domain name for about $10-13 per year and (b) web hosting fee for about $3-5 per month. But I will make all the necessary arrangements for you.
Why "All Done For You"?
This website - CyberCash Worldwide is about online growth hacking for individuals. I always recommend newbies to join Wealthy Affiliate if they particularly want to learn how to build a website and monetise it. The training platform is hands-on comprehensive I believe, but I see some members do struggle to pick up the basics. Such as customising a WordPress template or just resizing an image.
I've seen many people who love writing blogs, and they're willing to make money using their content, but having to give up because they can't jump over the first hurdle - creating the blogging platform seems too cumbersome.
There are some free blog platforms such as WordPress.com, Blogger.com, Weebly etc, but various restrictions apply to them, such as commercial activities not allowed or comments cannot be modified, etc. You cannot install plugins so there's no versatility in the long run. I'd like to set up a space where new bloggers can express themselves in any way they want by providing a website building service for free of charge.
Anything You Want...Except
Anything except contents that promote crime, hate, terrorism, violence, discrimination against minority groups...child abuse...obviously. Web hosting companies wouldn't allow that kind of stuff, and I don't tolerate that kind of stuff.
Adult contents are welcome (again, no prohibited content by law e.g. child pornography, threats / humiliation that's not part of a consenting role-playing game). I will need to install a content restriction plugin (i.e. age check upon entering the site). And of course I will treat the entire arrangement with strict confidentiality.
A friend of mine has recently paid $700 to a professional designer to get his website set up. Unfortunately the site looked a little outdated to me and it wasn't aligned properly, which made me think, "I could have done that for him for 1/2 the price!"
But that's just my opinion - I know my own web designing skill is not the most advanced either. And many people do themselves without a professional's help for free.
I've seen a few "We Build A Website For You" services offering $500 for a 5-page site, so that may be an average market price right now. If you pay that kind of money, you should expect;
Otherwise why should you pay hundreds of dollars for a service?
I’ll Build A Website For You - What I'm Offering
So I am going to offer to build an entire website for free of charge, but as I mentioned earlier, I need to register a domain name and web hosting in your name which you'll have to pay for (no more than $70 per year - by using the most reliable hosting company at the cheapest range).
You & I will be sharing the login ID and password while I'm working on the site, but once everything's set up, I need to ask you to change the password and the site will all be yours.
My plan includes;
I'm working on it right now, and will advertise in this space in the very near future. If you'd like to book a service early, just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
It’s an awesome idea. I wish I could offer a service like that. Don’t have enough knowledge. Some day. Perhaps. But I’ll charge at least something that people charge in Fiverr otherwise it will take up your time and you never know how you can handle in the future. I admire you for your brave decision. Go for it.
Thanks Hiro for your comment. If you can build a website using WordPress – it doesn’t have to be the most advanced site, just a simple 5-page site – you can offer it to anyone, and whether you charge a small amount or not is all up to you.
My aim is to help anyone who just cannot start up because of some technical issue that they are facing. And I don’t need to earn money just to share my knowledge. Thanks again Hiro for your words, I appreciate it!
I’m in! Just emailed you Ray thanks.
Okay I’ve emailed you back now, catch you up later on hopefully today! 🙂
