Start your own business / website

Web design is far too complicated for me. Or is it?

In this modern era companies have come along and can now give us instant websites, which look amazing and work perfectly.

However if you need to modify the website or shop, beyond changing a few colours and adding products you will need a proper web designer/developer.

How long does it take?

This depends how complicated you want the website to be, but you can create an amazing website in under 30 minutes with the easiest software we’ve ever tested, honestly anyone can create a beautiful website.

Alternatively setup a totally free site with BloggerWordPress. Or try a paid version of Yola.

I want to sell physical products what should I use?

If you’re wanting to sell products, use the best selling platform currently available, alternatively look at selling on websites such as eBay or Amazon.

What should I call my website?

So you now have your website & possibly an online shop but you don’t have a website address or name try using the Web 2.0 Name Generator & then buy the .com, or even .co domain at the UKs lowest priced website domain registrar.

How can I get people to visit my site?

Start off with word of mouth, grab 250 free fully customisable business cards & put the website address on it, give these out to friends and family members.

↪ More ‘free’ cards > (have to pay postage).

↪ If you want awesome professional cards get them from or the quality is superb on both of those

Where can I learn more about this?

There is so much to learn about creating web sites, it’s a lot more complicated than just setting up a website and letting the money flow in.

We recommend you start small, learn about the basics of setting a site up and then do some online learning.

Codecademy is a great learning platform to learn the basics of coding a website.

How do I make money from it?

  • Selling items
  • Placing adverts on the site
  • Promoting your existing business idea

Be a financial rockstar and share this with your friends, family and co-workers to maximise savings:

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
