Thank you GoDaddy for sponsoring this post. Get started on building your own website with GoCentral today!
You probably ended up on this post because you are wondering how on earth you can make your own website with zero design or coding skills. That was my problem too. Fortunately, GoDaddy GoCentral makes it easy for you to create your own website for your side hustle, whatever it may be.
Although I am a designer, I am not the most tech savvy person when it comes to the internet, and I prefer to spend my time creating rather than spending hours on a website for my business. So I am going to tell you about how I created a simple but functional website in a few hours with very little effort.
First a little background about myself, I was once a full time graphic designer, but quit my day job once I had two kids to look after.
I knew I wanted to be home to watch them grow up, but after a little while as our expenses grew with our family, I had to start thinking about ways to make some money on the side. While I still did design piece work here and there, what I really wanted to do was get back to my passion of fine art. So I began painting again and selling on Etsy and at local art fairs.
I have an etsy shop but I knew I wanted my own portfolio site that would look more professional. Using GoDaddy GoCentral, I was able to complete a clean and professional looking website in less than an hour! As any of you parents know, kids don’t leave you with a lot of extra time, so being able to create something myself, quickly, was game changing.
Also, hiring out can be VERY expensive. If you are just starting a small business, keeping costs down is really important.
GoCentral gives busy moms and dads an easy way to get their side hustle online and share it with the world, whether it’s getting an online store up, or providing a centralized place with info on a service. And because a website can be built in less than an hour – no previous website-building experience necessary! – it lets parents spend time on the things that really matter.
GoCentral has so many helpful assets to get you started such as, built in stock images, email marketing and social media buttons. It is such an amazing tool for any parent who wants to start a home business. You can even update your site quickly on your cell phone when you are out and about. Painting is my passion in life, and I love that there is such an easy way for me to share that with the world.
