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.
GETTING STARTED WITH WORDPRESS
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

6. Create Your Navigation Menu
