Website Blueprint: The Beginners Guide for Small Business Owners

Website Blueprint

Website Blueprint was created for busy small business owners. This is the first book every entrepreneur should read in order to understand everything that’s required to have a successful online presence.

This isn’t your typical confusing “how to build a website” book. It’s a guide that describes (in step-by-step detail) how to create/recreate, manage, and market the perfect small business website.

You’ll find easy to follow directions on getting organized, finding a designer even when you’re on a budget, and how to reduce the time and stress of getting your website online. It even includes do-it-yourself tips on Google SEO (search engine optimization), email marketing, business blogging, social media, and more.
