How to Make a Website – Free & Under  7 minutes

How to Make a Website – Free & Under 7 minutes

Hello. My name is Mike and in this video I’m going
to teach you how to create a website that will be free forever and no technical skills
needed. Once you have your website you’ll be able
to optimize it yourself so that you can appear higher in search results for Google and other
search engines. To make our website today we’re going to use
the Webnode 2.0 online website maker because it is easy-to-use, there is no software download
or installation required and you’ll be able to edit whenever you’d like. Also, you’ll be able to create a professional
and stylish website. Click on the button in this video or click
on the link in the video description below to get started making your website with me. Once you’re on the homepage, click on “Get
Started” and fill out the registration form. Enter the name of your website, your email
address and a password. You will use the same email address and password
to log in and edit your website whenever you want. Now, click on the button “Register & Create”
to get started. Templates are organized by business categories
and topic. They all come with default content to help
and inspire you while you build your website. Every element in the template can be edited
and all templates are fully responsive meaning that they will automatically adjust to various
screen sizes including mobile devices. Webnode’s editor makes use of four types of
tools. Some are for customizing the design, others
create and edit the layout of the sections of the website, some add content like text,
images, videos or forms and in PAGES, here, you can edit the menu of the website. Double-click texts to edit them. With the text toolbar, you are able to make
texts bold or in italics and change the font, style or size. You can also enlarge titles by clicking on
this button. To change the header image, click on the “settings”
button and then click “Add image.” Webnode offers a large collection of free
images for use on your website, or, click on “Upload image” if you want to use your
own image from your computer. Choose the one you want, press “Open” and
then double-click it to add it to your website. Go to “Effects” to customize the header image. Here, you can add filters, change the brightness
and position, or crop the image by clicking “customize” and using the image resizer. Add sections to have more space for all types
of content. This will allow you to change the layout,
variety and even add attention-grabbing titles to your site. Click the + to create one. I’m going to use a “Services” section that
I’ve already created to show you how it works. You can add more elements by clicking on the
+ and edit them by double-clicking the element. Now, modify the text by using the text editor
bar and change the style and other edits. Click “Change image” if you would like to
use a different one. To modify the order of the elements displayed,
simply drag and drop them to another place in the list. To delete an element, select the one you don’t
want, click on the trash bin and then click “delete.” You can also delete a section by clicking
on the settings button and then clicking “Delete.” You will then be able to create a new one
in its place. If you have a pricelist on your website, you
can add more elements by clicking the + and editing the details we see right now. Add new content to your website using the
“Add Content” tool that you will see when scrolling over the section. Let’s add a button. Now, I insert a link to a page on the website
and I double-click the button to change the text as you see now. If you want to edit others pages, go to the
menu and click the page you want to edit. Add a “Text and Image” section by clicking
the + and this button. Now, change the image by selecting it first,
then click “Edit” and then “Replace.” We can place the image in different places
within the text by dragging and dropping it. Adjust the size by pulling the corners. You can also move the text to different areas
and, if the image is too large, you can adjust the focus with the slider on the side. For adding YouTube or Vimeo videos, click
on “Video” within the “Add Content” tool. Then, simply paste the video link in this
field and press “OK.” Once it is on your site, resize it by pulling
on the corners. Finally, let’s add a photo gallery. First, click the + to add a section and place
it where you want it. Click “Upload Images” and select the ones
you would like to use. Once they are uploaded click “Close.” To view the images in Full-Screen, simply
click the thumbnail on your published website. Edit the menu of your website by clicking
“PAGES.” Click “Add page” to create a new page for
your site. Choose the layout, name the page and click
“Create.” If you want a subpage, click “Add page” and
follow the same directions. Then, click on the page name and drag just
a little bit to the right. You can reorder the pages in the menu by dragging
and dropping them within the list. If you would like to rename it, double-click
the name and change it. And, if you want to delete a page, select
it and click “Delete page.” Once you are happy with your menu, click “Close.” Now that you have your menu ready, link your
elements to different pages on your website by clicking “Add link.” By doing so, you will allow your visitors
the ability to browse your site faster and in a more user-friendly way. Now, let’s take a look at adding widgets. To add a GoogleMaps widget, click on the +
and then “Map.” Enter the address and press “OK.” You can resize the map by clicking and dragging
the corners. To insert and external widget, click the +,
then click the black dot and choose “HTML.” Now paste the external HTML code into the
field and press “OK.” As an example, I added a live chat widget
to talk with visitors. Click “Publish” to publish all of your changes
to the internet. Click on your project’s name to see the published
version of your site. And now, this is how it looks on the internet. Take a look at the ChatBox widget. It’s only shown in the published version of
your website. To edit your website, go to the Webnode homepage
and click “Login.” Enter you email address and password and click
“Log in.” If you forgot your password, click here and
follow the instructions to receive a new one. If you need to contact the support staff or
check out the knowledgebase, go to your “My Projects” page and choose the website you
have a question about. Click on “Menu” and then “Support.” Having and creating your own website is a
very useful skill for both personal and commercial purposes. An online presence will allow you to reach
anybody in the world, wherever you are. In this video, we’ve seen how simple it is
to create a website with Webnode. If you have not gotten started yet, click

  1. Hi, everything described, but not the text editor? Is there one at all and does it have a source code view? If not, how can I influence the line break?


  3. This is superb , please does webnode do hosting and domain name too? Also what is the maximum website to be built with the profil package?

  4. Hello Mike, and thanks for the video, however, there doesn't appear to be a an option for my particular business. I'm a crafter. I create gifts for just about ANY occasion, from gift baskets, candles, babies, children and so on. Are there any graphics for me to choose from that will reflect my business? Also, is there a cart area, Domain names? Please enlighten. And thanks so much for the free web info.

  5. Does this platform allow for onine sales (e.g., ebooks, online course videos). Does it do CRM? e.g., mailing campaigns, drip campaigns (if someone purchases), etc.?

  6. Hello – will I be able to create a music directory website with about 10 main categories and hundreds of lists under each main category? Also, will I be able to upload these lists that I’ve already created in Excel onto the website without too much trouble? Thanks.

  7. Hello, Nice video. I would like to know a couple of things. 1) I have about 30 competitors as a locums Provider. Meaning they search for hospitals and practices for needs and charge about 50-100 %. I would like to know how do you find their keywords and tabs so I can do an Organic and rank in the web sites like goggle and be found? Second can one also have a free autoresponder to use
    thank you

  8. A cheap shot at building your traffic dude. The come-on is uncool when you really want people to hook into your paysite.

  9. Can this system make User Logins so my website can have Users? And how do I take payments directly on the site? Or maybe this is only for informational sites, not ones that connect to other things?

  10. I returned to this post about a month after my first visit; and there was something else that I noticed: If you ask the post's creator a question about the method that he demonstrated herein; he never actually answers the question: Instead he always suggests that you "contact Webnode support".

    The above would indicate that he has little or no interest in or knowledge of creating websites, and that he's simply a salesman working for or on behalf of Webnode – probably on a commission-only basis. I would even go so far as to speculate that any visitors who go from here to Webnode's support site are counted as his leads, and are subsequently retargeted with Webnode's advertising. The creator would then get a commission if any such leads turn into a sale.

  11. Ok, what is the catch. Where is the part you make the money? Are you providing the hosting? Can I get all the details please.

  12. Hi

    Q1). I could not understand about adding link and HTML link part please explain and what are the uses (Purpose) of adding them.Thank you pl I need simply understandable answer because I do not have technical knowledge . 🙂

    Q2). what needs to do to show my new website on google search results soon?

  13. Thanks, great concept – Interesting templates and was wondering if possible to change a template to a different profession? If so, may I alter the headers, and of course the images. The templates may be fixed where the new website may be totally flexible … please confirm if both the template and new website are equally editable. I assume this site would support animations… may I animate my logo anywhere on the page or must it be placed in a "portfolio box". Regardless, awesome idea!

  14. I had over 31000 followers on Pinterest and they ban me, for pining too much & it is ironic they called it "PIN"terest… I was nice & I follow everyone back & re pin their pins. You never never seen any sex video on my page & Pinterest is full of perverts THAT can't keep their keep private acts in their bedroom & I think Pinterest should be more worried about protecting the children from all the perverts but instead they were more worried about me pinning a dress more than once. Sorry just had to vent somewhere! Pinterest lost youtube gain. jYour Video was great.


  16. Very informative video. Thanks for sharing with us. I found the best web hosting for $3.95 a month at BlueHost http://linkfx.info/BlueHost

  17. Thank you very much for this tutorial. In the month of April, 2019 I paid wix.com to take their premium website. But I found it very useless and then on the top of that they started debiting my master card. There is a policy that if I don't like their service and cancell it within 14 days then they will send back money in 20 days time. But unfortunately after cancelling the same day I never received my money nor they are replying my emails. Kindly advise me how I recover my money because I want to take the premium service of website from good company like Webnode. Wix.come are completely fraud and I advise people never ever apply web service from them. Please also advise me what to do.
