The Best Examples of Websites from 20+ Virtual Assistant Superstars

Hey, friend! Summer is just about over and before you know it, back-to-school time will be here. The first day of school means new beginnings for the kids but hey - adults can use a new beginning too, right? And if you’ve been on the fence about launching your brand-spankin' new website for your virtual assistant business, then September might just be the perfect time to do it.  Lots of business owners are headed back from vacation and are ready to jump feet first back into their business for that last push before the holidays get here.

Random thought: am I the only one who gets turned on by new binders and planners? School shopping never gets old to me. I love organizing the supplies and getting everything ready for the first day of school. Hey, this is a no-judgment zone, ok? I also love saving money. If school shopping is on your list of things to do, definitely take advantage of tax-free weekends. Most states have them and it’s just as the name implies: no sales tax on certain items. Here’s a list of all states that participate and the details for each. Or if going to the stores isn't your thing, sign up for Ebates and get money back when you shop. Seriously! Happy saving!

 

 

Back to the website thing: have you been marketing your business without a website and you’re ready to just do the darn thing? Good for you! Then let’s get down to it, shall we? We’ve got a bit to cover.

 

When it comes to building a new website, you’ve got a few options.

The most popular option is Wordpress.

To take advantage of its full functionality, make sure to set up a website on the Wordpress.org site - not the free version of  Wordpress.com. You’ll be glad you did this - trust me.

In order to set up a Wordpress site, you’ll need to:

  • Purchase a domain - Your domain name is what visitors will type in the browser bar to find you. Most domains end in .com but .co, and .biz might be available also - sometimes cheaper than the .com version. I use NameCheap to buy domain names.

  • You’ll need a host - think of your host as the land you rent to house your website. There are various hosting companies - Siteground, Bluehost and GoDaddy are a few popular options. Make sure to do your homework before choosing a host. Pick the wrong host and you run the risk of website issues - not good.

  • You’ll need a theme. The theme is the foundation for your website. It’s what will house your content. The theme is what you can make all fancy to suit your needs. Check out Divi or Bluechic for a theme you can make your own.

If you’re totally new to Wordpress and you have no clue how to get your website off the ground, check out this free tutorial that will walk you through the Wordpress set up.

 

The other option I recommend is Squarespace.

I’m a Squarespace lover. One reason is it’s an all-in-one platform: the hosting is included with the theme. There are no plugins like Wordpress so you don’t have to worry about updating any. Plus, it’s very functional and customizable. You can seriously build out a Squarespace site in a weekend once you get the hang of it. Megan Minns has a free course I highly recommend if you want to use Squarespace. Access it here.

Whatever platform you decide to roll with, make sure to download this free planner to pull it all together.
