How to set up a business website

Get started with 1&1 MyBusiness Site

Step 11. You want customers to be able to find you. If you’re a small business with remote premises, a map embedded into your website will be invaluable. In the ‘Add new element’ screen, go to More Content and select Google Maps. Add your postcode in the box that appears. You can also add YouTube links or widgets here.

Step 12. Next, we need a decent online shopping system to sell our wares. Still in the ‘Add new element’ box, click the ‘Products and Services’ tab. Here, we added a text description of our cookies and their price. We also added a ‘Display more’ link so customers can choose which cookies to buy.

Step 13. To set up a payment method, click ‘Product description’ and choose the Settings tab. From here you can select ‘Cash in advance’, ‘Cash on delivery’, Invoice or PayPal. You can also configure shipping methods and set it up to automatically send out emails to customers who’ve just bought something.

Step 14. We now have a fully operational business website that comes with its own domain, 200 email accounts and unlimited web space and data traffic. We can tweak the website’s settings and manage all our online business needs through the Control Panel admin facility. All we need now is some customers.
