If you are still sitting on the sidelines and watching everyone you know create a web site or blog of their own, I recommend you take a look at my “Seven Days of Blogging: My Personal Guide to Blogging” series. I cover everything from the most basic steps of setting up your first web site and even getting to the point where you have an established brand and you are ready to start monetizing the site.
When it comes to web site creation you have a lot of options. When I started my very first sites, I was using Microsoft Frontpage Editor was back in 1998! This was all straight HTML and how the web used to be. Now everything is so fancy and automated!
Even with all of the automation in place, setting up a web site or blog through WordPress and getting setup with your own hosting can still scare some people off. There is actually a whole industry out there of web hosting services that have an extremely simple and WYSIWYG platforms. In short, you design how you want your page to look, at some content and then click PUBLISH. It’s as simple as that.
How to Create a Site with IMCreator
IMCreator.com is one of these easy to use site designers that I am talking about. I’ll walk through the process right now so you can see how easy it is.
The first thing you will need to do is select how you want to design your site. This means either starting with a template, a blank slate or edit one of your existing sites. In this example I went with the “Choose a template” method.
Once I chose the template I wanted to work with, I was then able to start creating my site. For anyone that doesn’t want to ever touch WordPress or deal with the complications of FTP and software to design a site, IMCreator has exactly what you are looking for. Within just a few minutes I was able to completely customize the design below with my own content and images. This was simply a matter of clicking where I wanted content posted and then typing. Once finished you can click on PUBLISH on the top right.
After clicking Publish, your web site will go live and be hosted on the IMCreator site. You can see the url of my new site in the screenshot below. Of course nobody wants to have a long URL like this for their site, so that is where the upgrade plan comes into play. For $7.95 a month you can upgrade your account so you can connect it with a domain name, get a custom email address and various other benefits.
The premium you are paying for your site is the ability to use the themes and easy to use editor to create and edit your sites.

Now that I showed you how easy it is to build a web site through IMCreator, I also wanted to show you that you can make money through their site as well. Like most hosting services, IMCreator also has affiliate program and they are paying out $35 for every referred new sign up that results in an premium hosting account. The $35 commission can go higher if you can provide volume and quality leads over time.
