Your website – a personal online platform for you to display your work, showcase your skills and drive business. It’s a space designed for you and available to everyone. It’s a marketing strategy, it’s an extension of your brand, it’s your voice in the industry; it’s a must.

Professionals don’t take shortcuts, they work days on end and skip weekend trips with their friends to deliver a project. But when it comes to creating their website, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice. liveBooks is a platform that provides easy-to-use website templates and award winning customer support is here to lend a hand. And you are five steps away from having a stunning responsive website.

Choose a template

You have dozens of website templates to choose from. Take it as it is, or make it your own. Every liveBooks template allows you to customize its setup, layouts, fonts, colors, and page content. Pick one that suits you best, create an account and get your work online.

Upload your media

Go to your Content editor where all your pages are listed. Delete the existing images from the image library and upload your own in the Portfolio pages. Along with image files we can help you upload PDFs and add videos to your pages.

Fill in the About page

An About Page is the most visited page on every website, so creating the perfect introduction to your clients is crucial. Need help? This guide will help you write a great About page!

Add your Contact Info

An email address or a phone number are absolutely necessary to get your business to move forward. This being said, there are many other features you can use to help future clients get in touch with you: a build in maps module, social icons accessible from the menu or the footer or the ability to embed contact forms to any page. Make yourself easy to reach on more than one medium.

Choose a domain name and Publish your site

Choosing a domain name is very important for your business. You want it to be short, easy to type and remember, and be a proper extension to your brand.

Then, all you need to do is publish it. Setting up your website has never been easier, and the result will make a great impact on your brand and your future clients.

Design and layout consistency matter when presenting your work to your online audience. Whether they are new visitors checking out your portfolios or long established fans of your work, roaming around your website should feel like a cohesive experience. The unification of style, colors, visual elements and tone of voice in your writing are elements that define your brand, albeit a small part of it. Check out this article for more details on how to enhance your brand.

So how does duplicating a page help your brand? When you duplicate a page, you create an exact clone of it on your website. This means that all the structural elements and design specifications will be transferred over to your new page. So will all your content from the duplicated page; all you will have to do is replace the copies with your content of choice.

We encourage all clients to add features and experiment with all the design editor has to offer. In this respect, we find page duplication an important feature for all our clients, because when you’ve come to the ideal setup for your page, all that’s left is to duplicate it, fill in the content and publish your work.

We make page duplication sound very easy, and it is: right now you are four clicks away from creating a new page with the same structure. Before we start, make sure your targeted page is set to visible. You can change this setting back after you’ve duplicated it.

  1. First click on your content editor to see the list of all your pages.
  2. Select the gear icon on any page that you wish to duplicate.
  3. In the black modal popup, select the blue Duplicate page link. 
  4. Select the green Yes button when prompted. Your new page will appear right under the target page and it will have the same title. 

That’s it! Now all you have to do is change the content in your new page. These two pages are not synced, so should you make any structural or design changes in one, the other will remain the same.

5 Website Must-Haves in 2018

Posted by liveBooks

These days, nearly every business has a website. While this is by and large a good thing, it does mean the competition to win the hearts of online audiences is more steep than ever before.

But how do you go about that? What will make your website stand out, generate leads and satisfy customers?

No need to fret. Here are a handful of factors you can focus on that will help you go from being just another one, to being the one your ideal customers will gravitate to time and time again.

Quality Imagery

Have you been using photographs from 5 or 10 years ago? Or are you relying on traditional clip-art as your graphics?

If you’re going to get serious about your website, the visuals need to show it. One way to ensure you have a set of quality images to use for your website is to hire a branding or commercial photographer, alongside a graphic designer.

And if you already have high quality images, take it up a notch by making videos! All of the biggest names in marketing are talking about how fast video content is trending on every digital platform, which means that adding videos to your website can be a way to stand out from those stuck in the past.

Top-Notch Content

The phrase “content is king” has become a popular phrase to describe just how important text is for your website. And in more ways than one!

Every word you include on your website has the ability to either have an impact on your ideal audience . . . or lose them altogether. Make them count by being informative, engaging and valuable.

You’ll also find that the more high-quality content you have on your website, the better your chances of ranking well on search engines.

Blogs

Having a website these days simply isn’t enough to be found on Google.

Utilize a company blog to increase your ranking while also providing useful information to your audience. Although many business owners don’t think their industry or company could reap benefits from having a blog, it’s often more doubt than fact.

Company blogs today don’t have to fit the traditional idea of a personal blog. Think of any hot topic or debate in your industry. Think of your previous clients and the specific ways you’ve made a difference.

A blog can easily be used as a portfolio, compilation of case studies, a journal of industry insight and experience, and a whole lot more. Go outside of the box!

Social Media Links

Your website can be the “hub” that all of your other marketing efforts are connected to. While some clients or customers may find you on social media first, others may find your website and be interested to see your social media content afterwards.

Be sure to include links to your social media accounts on your website, either on your website’s footer, contact page, or about page.

Mobile Optimization

Within the last year, search engines have started to adjust their algorithms to place more weight on websites that are optimized for mobile devices.

What does this mean for you? If your website is responsive for a wide range of devices, you will win out against those that aren’t.
