Michigan Web Designer owns several Michigan based websites.
Building your own website is easy to do.
I am not for hire so please don't ask me to build yours.
I build only my own or a few websites for friends - so solicitors, don't call me with projects or offers.
If you have a website project you want custom built, call Patrick at 231-580-9263 - He is an exceptional designer and he accepts only cash or PayPal for his services.
It is important for any business that you to have your Website up and running.
I build my websites with Joomla and it is very easy to use - if you can use WORD, you can use JOOMLA.

Before you buy anything or create a website, learn the business by visiting the free WebmasterRadio podcast site and listen to as many of these downloadable podcasts as you can.
I suggest that you start with the following shows;
These shows are hosted by people who are in the business and are experts in their categories.
They lay it all out there and have fun doing it as they educate you toward the best ways to build your business and optimized traffic to your site.
To find a keyword based domain name, go to the Google Keyword tool to find out what people are actually searching for as the terms relate to your product or potential product.
Buy a keyword based name and a name that fits your business. Then build you new site with the keyword name and redirect your business name to that site.
The tool is free and offers how many times the term is searched for each month - in other words fish in a pond full of fish.
Now, search for an available domain name by going to Domainsbot to see if the name you are interested in is available and then go to the suggested hosting companies below.
If you like Godaddy, we have a special price of $5.99 for a .com domain name if you click on the Godaddy ad on the top-right side of any page.
Even though I get a free domain name through BlueHost and HostMonster, I buy all my other domain names through Godaddy and that will change soon as their costs have gone through the roof.
