So first up is your computer. I have found that using a Registry Cleaner keeps your computer running smooth. So I use Registry Cleaner.com . I use it because I visit so many peoples site all day long getting useful information.
Now we get started on what to use on our website. I have many useful tools that can help. Unfortunately you can't get things for free every time but I do have a few things that can help to get going and they are yes. lol Free...
Now here is a HTML Coding tool . HTML Tutorial coding.com . Yes that is free. I used it to learn all I needed to know all about HTML coding and what it can do for my website. It can help to change the look of your site and you can use it later on for a profit as well. Sell yourself to others when they need a HTML coder. ^.~
Now this is just a little helper. I use it but in a different form. I just found this tonight. I am already hooked on it. I choose the male secretary . lol It's called Desktop Mates They are just little helpers. They even can use the voice of the person that is calling you. They seem to take on a personality of their own. ^.^ They have many verities of forms and do many things. For you guys they have female maids and other kind of women as well.
From what I gathered from it they do umm naughty things as well. :/ But anyway that is very helpful to you when an email comes in you will get a message through them. They peek around the counter even and say You have a message. Really cool. I am still working on finding out what else it does.
Now for the graphics side of things. I use Gimp Tutorials. Well I don't use it as a tutorial any more. Well I don't cause I am an Artist and have been using it for years. How is it useful for a website? Look around on others sites. What is the one things that jump out at you?
Art is what everyone needs for making something more appealing to the eyes. So you really want to work around that mostly . Now the link I gave is a tutorial and is free. Thats how I got mine and they have always been free.
Now if you choose to go with a name that is very popular on the shelves at stores for a way out there price then try Photoshop. But Gimp can do all that Photoshop does and it is easier and free. ^.^
Youtube is another one that is fun and useful. Not sure how you found my site but most of my visitors are from Youtube. Easy to sign up and on Weebly you have the tool to use that places those videos you make and can place them right there on a page even a blog. Youtube is a great advertising method as well.
You also need to have a feed that will put your word out there on the latest blogs and what your website has added recently. Put your Twitter on your Website as well. That way your friends and business associates can see when your working online or what ever it may be. But it keeps them close.Use your feed as well.
But remember one thing . You want to have others know your there so you have to advertise. I will get around to that soon. I will give more tips as we get further into things. But This will be enough for tonight to work with. Now get in there and start working that Website. ^.~
