Tools I Have Used To Launch & Grow My Tarot Business
Step By Step Guide To Launch Your Website
I started my online tarot business on Jan 2019. I am still learning to design and develop my website on my own but this is too time consuming and I don't want you to spend your precious time in learning these skills and deciding which tools will work best for your online tarot business.
Therefore, I have decided to share tools which are very easy to use and cost-effective in order to build website on your own (without paying single penny to any website developers or designers). I am listing tools & plugins one by one so that you can easily launch your website in just 1 day.
Before diving into the topic, I would like to thank my tarot followers on my Facebook Page & Facebook Group. In just 3 months, I have built up lovely tarot community and client base whom I appreciate a lot. Your trust, feed backs and patronage encourages me to keep going and give my best to you every time.
In market, there are many website builder platforms to make your website without hiring a developer like wix.com, bigcommerce.com, weebly.com, shopify.com, squarespace.com, wordpress.com and wordpress.org but the main part is to choose The Best. I would highly recommend you to opt for wordpress.org than wix.com because it is more flexible. I first made my website using wix.com but soon realized my limitations and finally switched to wordpress.org.
Many domain registrations and hosting companies like Blue host, Namecheap and GoDaddy but my personal opinion would be Godaddy.com. It is one of the largest hosting companies in the world, and they are an official WordPress hosting partner. I registered my domain and website hosting from GoDaddy.com and trust me; it's really very cheap and super easy. You can install WordPress.org on your website with just a few clicks.
Business Email Address
It is one of the ‘MUST HAVE’ like ‘Domain registration & Website hosting’ when you are planning to take your tarot hobby to a professional level because one major means of business communication is email. It not only sounds professional but brings more credibility to your tarot business. It sends signals to your clients that you are serious about business. Trust me; this little investment is worth in order to gain immense client’s trust.
That’s it, investing in domain registration; web-hosting and professional email-address is enough for you at the first stage of your business. Once you are set, you can invest later as required to re-brand your website.
Email is alive and kicking because it is one of the easiest means to communicate with your audience. Email marketing campaigns can help in generating a genuinely-interested audience, promoting your brand's message, educating your subscriber base, and closing more sales deals. There are many others like mailchimp.com, aweber.com but I use Zoho.com because Zoho Campaigns presents a robust set of features that helps me to achieve everything mentioned above, and boost my marketing process.
We all are aware of that Google Analytics is one of the most ubiquitous tools of web marketing because it provides a lot of web traffic data. Google Analytics with Zoho connect helps you to the ROI of each channel, campaign, keyword, blog post etc. This lets you stop wasting money on ineffective marketing. Also, the Zoho Customer Support is quick and awesome.
Copyright Free Images & Logo
You all are aware of the benefits we get using high quality royalty free images for your websites and blogs. I came to know about this resource from David, the founder of www.tarotavenue.com and I heartily thank him for sharing this in his blog because I don’t know how I would be able to manage my website images without www.canva.com and www.pixabay.com
I have even designed my website Logo on canva and I believe its super cool. Few months later like one year from now, I will re-brand my website Logo but for now I am quite satisfied and happy with it. Below are few samples, I created on canva.com
