As a creative entrepreneur, I know first hand how lonely and challenging starting a business can be with minimal resources, guidance and community. I was desperate to connect with like-minded females, and discover time-saving productivity hacks, and mindset / routine tips of other successful business owners, so I created Boss Girls Society, focused on sharing proven tips, tools and templates to help you build, launch and scale your own empire, along with a free online community.

If you plan on becoming a blogger, your online presence is very important. The overall look and feel of your website says a lot about your credibility so you should make sure your website gives off a good first impression. Here are a few tips and tricks for you to implement into your website to make you look like a professional blogger, (even if you’re just starting out).

1. Buy Your Own Domain Name

Once you come up with a catchy blog title, you should lock down the domain name! Websites such as www.godaddy.com and www.instantdomainsearch.com make it easy for you to search if your desired name has already been claimed. If so, consider using a different domain extension, such as, .co, .org, .blog, .info, etc.

2. Choose a Beautiful & Unique Theme

The overall look of your blog is so important because it is a showcase of your brand. WordPress offers numerous free blogger style themes, and there are other great websites for purchasing premium themes like, www.creativemarket.com and www.etsy.com. If you are looking for a unique and more customized theme that matches your brand, check our Showit website templates (coming soon!) They are incredibly easy to customize and rearrange.

3. Include Your Social Media Icons

Having links to your other social platforms is a must. This shows credibility and gives your audience an opportunity to follow you on your other pages.

4. Make Sure to have a Contact Page

It is also very important to allow readers and brands to reach you. We all know the frustration of trying to get into contact with someone and not being able to find an email address!

5. Use Professional Photos

Having appealing photos plays a huge role in a blog that is professional and pleasing to the eye. Photos are one of the main components that draws the readers attention to your website and posts. If you need help on how to take your own professional photos, see our post, How to Take Your Own Professional Flat Lay Photos. You can also check out royalty free image websites, such as www.pexels.com and www.unsplash.com.

6. Add a Favicon

If you are not familiar with favicons, they are the tiny thumbnails displayed in the browser tab, next to a website. You can customize this in your Showit or WordPress theme settings. It is best to use your logo or an icon that stands out and is recognizable to your brand. The recommended size is 16x16px and PNG format.
