Building your own website for your bookkeeping business can cost countless hours and headaches. While I offer done for you website solutions to help professional bookkeepers get their business off the ground and up and running online, I understand not everyone can afford to hire a professional.

So, I  put together this basic WordPress website guide to help you get started on your DIY WordPress website journey.


1. Purchase Hosting

To get started with WordPress, one of the things you need is a hosting account somewhere to “put” your WordPress website and all the files associated with it (this is NOT a program that goes on your computer).

2. Install WordPress

Installing WordPress looks a bit different for various hosting sites, but for the hosting I provide includes automatic setup, backups and software updates paired with 24/7, award-winning support.

3. Choose Your Theme

Dashboard > Appearance > Themes > Add New > Install > Activate 

4. Add The Elementor Page Builder Plugin

 Dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Elementor 

5. Add Your Pages

Dashboard > Pages > Add New

6. Create Your Navigation Menu

Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Menus to Create New Menu and then follow the prompts to add your site pages to the menu you’re creating. You can drag and drop the order of the menu links and even create sub-menus.

Don’t forget to press save!

7. Add Your Content

Dashboard > Pages > Select Page > Edit With Elementor > Point, Click, and Customize

8. Customize Your Footer

Appearance > Customize > Footer > Copyright.

9. Review and Publish

Once you’ve included everything on your site, make sure you review  each and every page to ensure all your links and buttons are linked and functioning properly.

Dashboard > Pages > Select Page > Edit With Elementor > Publish

Would you rather let me take care of this for you so you can focus on what you do best?
