How to Make a Small Business WordPress Website

Build a Small Business Website, powered by WordPress

Creating a website used to cost a small fortune, and even today, you can still spend quite a bit of money to get a professionally designed and developed website even if you’re using WordPress. But if you are the type of person that enjoys doing things themselves, and if you don’t mind spending some time learning how to pick out the right theme, choose the right plugins and configure everything properly, then building yourself a website can actually be very cost-effective.
WordPress is an open source piece of software that you can install on your own Web server. It’s free to use and has thousands of free and premium themes to help you design your site the way you want. There are also tens of thousands of plugins both free and premium that you could use to add functionality to your WordPress powered website.

Small Business & WordPress

If you want your website to be a form of lead generation or a way for you to get more exposure for your business, then you might still want to invest a few dollars on the right theme and plugin combination.
You don’t have to spend that much, for about $500, you can have a website that rivals other sites that cost several thousand dollars. This is all possible because of the vast amount of affordable yet extremely well coded options you have for WordPress.

The Genesis Framework

The Genesis framework is one of the most popular options used by almost 200,000 WordPress powered websites. The theme that I’m going to go over today is a child theme to the Genesis framework called Smart Passive Income Pro.

How Easy is it to put together?

Putting together the theme to match the demo site can often be a tricky task. StudioPress, the creators of the Genesis framework have put a lot of effort into making their product easy to use. They provide documentation and have a large community that are willing to provide advice tips and tricks they’ve picked up over the years to properly configure and optimize the child themes for the Genesis framework.

About our YouTube Video

I created a YouTube video that guides you through the process of properly setting up the Smart Passive Income Pro child theme for Genesis. I walk you through the process of first installing the theme and then installing the child theme, from there I show you how to configure the front page to match the demo and how to set up the various features that the theme provides.
I chose to create a video because I know that sometimes you may not want to read the documentations but you may want a walk-through and I found that videos are a great way to demonstrate how to get things done.

  • accessibility writing

  • e-commerce support for WooCommerce
