Start With A Single Page
You decided to become a Google Ads Freelancer.
Problem … if you’re like most people you immediately begin to roll over in your brain all the countless things you must do to make it happen.
Overwhelm takes over. STOP. It doesn’t have to.
‡ Take for example a website.
You notice all the fancy websites everywhere and believe that you have to create the same.
To start, all you need is a one-page-website.
That’s because the first requirement of any Freelancer is … “a way for potential clients to contact you”.
A ONE-PAGE-WEBSITE does this. Let’s see.
1. Choose A Website Platform
My first choice is always WordPress. One-third of all websites use it. It’s easy to learn. Best of all — there exist hundreds of FREE one-page prebuilt templates waiting for you.
And when you’re ready to expand WordPress makes it simple to add pages.
Now you need a home for your one-page website. That’s next…
2. Choose A Website Host
Your ‘PAGE’ has to live somewhere on the Internet. A website hosting company provides this.
My two recommendations are HostGator or SiteGround. Yes, there are better (more expensive) companies. And yes, there are certainly cheaper ones.
But HostGator and SiteGround deliver that perfect balance between ‘price & quality’.
3. Choose An Email Service Provider
Remember my first requirement: “a way for potential clients to contact you”.
Email is the second piece of that answer. (Also phone calls, but that comes later.)
I like ConvertKit for email and building an audience. You can find dozens of articles that “sing the praises of ConvertKit”. Or just go to their website and decide for yourself.
4. Choose A Template & Fill In The Blanks
I mentioned in #1 that WordPress has hundreds of free prebuilt one-page templates. In the WordPress world these are called themes. Do a Google search for “best one page wordpress themes” and download a few.
A one-page website is enough to launch your freelance biz. Carry on, your freelance life awaits.
