Getting Started With

A Brand New Website

Step 1: Purchase Your Foundational Website Tools

There are 2 foundational tools you will need to have in place for me to get started on your website.

Use the links and accompanying videos below to purchase my recommended tools for your business website.


Purchase Your Domain Name

I use and recommend NameCheap because they have the best domain prices and you get WhoisGuard for free to protect your personal information from spammers and hackers.

Step 2: Access Your Client Portal + Share Your Log-in Info

As a client of mine, you get your own Client Portal. This is where you will find your signed contract, proposal, and invoice, as well as any other forms you need to fill out.

Let’s take a tour of your Client Portal so you can become familiar with it and get started with the necessary forms.

Step 3: Get to Know Dropbox (File Sharing)

In order to easily share documents, photos, videos, etc. we will be using Dropbox.

Dropbox is a great digital file storage and sharing tool. I’ve been using it for years to easily share things digitally, but I also use it to store ALL of my computer files.

Keep an eye on your email inbox for an email from Dropbox regarding a shared folder from me. I’ll be creating a shared folder for us so you can easily add any documents, photos, videos, etc. to that folder and I’ll automatically receive it on my end. We’ll both be able to edit and add things in the folder as we use it. And it will be labeled and organized accordingly so that we’ll both know where everything goes and can easily find things whenever we’re in there.
