Website setup is one of the major challenges that most people face. For some people it’s too difficult a task and others perceive it as a thing that costs too much money and time to manage. What I found through experience is, it’s lack of information that makes things difficult for us.
My Personal Branding Story
Website setup was one my major challenges as well when I started to think of building my online brand identity. I knew I needed to do it. I was therefore looking for expert help. During those days, a friend of mine introduced me to a web developer in Bangalore, India who agreed to help. I was excited!
I just wanted a website with a homepage, an 'About' page and a couple of pages where I wanted to put a few details that I thought were necessary at the time. When I told him what I wanted, he gave me a price which seemed unfair to me.
He asked me to invest over 600 dollars to begin with. Then he was going to charge some maintenance each month. He was also going to charge me a fixed dollar value (I don’t remember the amount anymore) each time I wanted a new page to be added to my website.
I was very upset with myself after I received that quote. Not because the quote was high, but the realization that my complacency had put me in that position. I was upset with myself because I did not know how to create a website for myself. It was something I should have learnt a long time ago but I didn’t. I knew it couldn’t be more difficult than the technologies I was working on.
I made a decision that day, to draw a line in the sand and to start fresh. I started on a new journey to learn to create websites starting with my own.
I made Google searches, read blogs, bought books and started doing some work. First I started with Blogger.com and learnt a few things about website designing. Meanwhile, through research, I found out that WordPress was the most popular website building platform. Therefore, I decided to give them a shot as well. I opened my account on WordPress.com and wrote a few blog posts. It was a good experience.
That was the beginning of opening up a whole new world of opportunities in front of me. It was a lot of learning, a lot of trial-and-error, but it was all worth it and that was the beginning of my journey on the road to personal branding.
Over the years, I have worked with clients, business associates and other professionals on creating their brand identities online. But one common challenge that I always encountered was, everybody was apprehensive about starting their websites initially. Some were skeptical because they thought it is too much of work while others thought it was a heavy investment.
There have been instances where I had to hard sell the idea to some of my friends to start their websites. They didn’t know how important that was, even though I knew they needed it. Well, they are now glad they listened to me, and that’s awesome!
The Common Website Setup Challenge
When it comes to setting up a website, either for your personal branding or to create your business brand identity, it is a challenge and here are some reasons:
- There is a lot of information available on the internet, but you need a comprehensive guide where all that you need to know is there at one place.
- There are a lot of experts out there, but you may not be ready to invest money in their service charges especially if you are capable of taking care of technical stuff.
- Yes, there are books on the subject, but they contain a lot more information than you need. So, they create confusion.
These were my challenges as well, and I know how many trial and errors I had to go through to get through.
Therefore, I decided to launch a very comprehensive, step-by-step guide that anybody can follow to start from scratch and build a professional quality world-class website and drive massive traffic without hiring an expert.

thnq u kumar!!! for your valuable information it helped me a lot in website developing and your information is very useful for newbies
This is one of the things that i’m afraid to admit that i have given up on several times along the way. I tell myself this is it along the way several times but then i fall short. This is such a good base for our younger ones and those thinking of taking up this initiative.
Kumar can’t wait to complete the free education and I’m sure it will be very helpful for web developing. I just pleased to read your branding story that was really awesome as well. Just keep informing like this. Thanks Kumar
