So we're going to dive deeper into websites and social media instagrams. But for now we want to make sure you're set up with it. So I'm sure you've already looked up your business name and made sure that was free on instagram or on the World Wide Web. So you can start a website now it's time to make sure you sign up. If you haven't already sign up for instagram, sign up for twitter, sign up for your business on facebook, get your website going. Your website is very important because it's gonna allow you to have an email address. Now you may already have like a gmail or an ICloud or you know whatever a well account. But the thing with your website is it will allow you to have your own email address at your business name. So it'll be will at Will Carnahan photography or will at will see photography. Now with some businesses, you may not want to start a website, you may not want to pay for it. So you could start a gmail account or you could start another account like for example with will...

see photography I have will dot c dot photo at gmail dot com. It allows me to separate all my business stuff from my personal stuff. Again, it makes it look a little bit more professional but the website email is going to make you look way more professional Will at will see photo dot com or whatever your website is. So get going, this is going to allow you to help communication and really get going with starting your business. So just to clarify, buying a domain name is different than hosting and building out your website. We recommend you go through a website similar to go daddy dot com to buy the domain name because you want it to be clean. Now. Later on, we can go through companies like squarespace or Wix or Wordpress where you take the domain that you've purchased and you apply it to a place where you can host it and create and build your beautiful website. There are also other photography sites like zen folio and sites similar to that where you can have a location if you pay for it, but it will have a zen folio or the name of it attached if you don't have your own domain name. So I want you to start by buying a domain name if that's where you're gonna go now. And we'll worry about building out and hosting and putting all your pretty photos on later. If you want to skip to that right away, there's another section on how to build out your build your website and you can skip ahead to that now. But in the meantime, get that domain name, get that instagram handle. Get going
