Quite a lot of things really! Here's our list, tailored just for you, of all the plugins, books, pages, archives and considerations you need to get your website started.
The "get a website" thing isn't a tick in a box, slap-up a template project either. Websites involve many decisions and can be quite complicated.
So, getting your website right is pretty important.
Technology can be intimidating and expensive. You can have the greatest product or service in the world but without a solid online presence, being found and then trusted is a big challenge.
Our signature DIY Website Checklist contains a personalised list of plugins, themes, and reading material designed just for your business type and size.
Use it to build your own or form a brief for a web developer. Even they'll be impressed with how organised you are.
It's completed entirely online, quiz style, and saved in your profile. You can download a PDF for printing and you can update it whenever you like.

My name's Sarah, and I run the digital agency A Lined Design. I've built rather a lot of websites now and I know the pitfalls DIYers fall into because I see it all the time. Most of our clients have had a valiant crack at their first websites to be so disheartened. I'm thrilled they got started. But I want you to get started with some great advice and a solid foundation.
