However, many people -- particularly those in business -- are too maxed out for this leisurely approach. They are looking for good, clear informaiton about building a website from scratch, and doing it in the quickest way possible with the best tools available.
These people might be interested in You Make The Website. It's been created by Dean Wormald, who has extensive experience in website production, SEO and other related fields.
For a small fee you get a comprehensive guide about how to start a website from scratch using Wordpress. It's all very clearly laid out. Subjects include how to set up various required accounts, choosing domain names, drawing traffic, and using Google Analytics. Membership includes access to various useful resources.
As any blogger knows, Wordpress is the best blogging platform available. But it's also a great content management system in its own right and has been designed with SEO in mind. It can be used to make a slick and professional website, and so is great for businesses.
The downside is that using Wordpress does require some comparatively involved technical steps. (Actually that's one of the reasons I haven't used it yet. I find it all a bit daunting! I've found that Blogger, Yola and Weebly meet my needs for now.) But the step by step approach in the guide will help dispel any trepidation that people have about using this platform.
In my opinion this is a good option for someone keen to build and promote his or her own professional looking, SEO friendly website quickly and efficiently.
