How to Create A Personal Website

Personal Website aka WebsiteResume®

To be honest, as with everything, at first it takes some learning and failing to get it right. Web development is no different. Don't feel helpless or hopeless however, it can be done. You can actually source helpful walk through video's on Youtube that will be really helpful. It took me about a month to learn to build my first website, but maybe I'm just a slow learner, now I can make one in hours, depending on the sophistication of course. I do believe however that in order to give the most helpful advice, first we need to understand the 'what' and 'why' of a personal website.

Now a WebsiteResume®, as the word suggests, is your resume painted onto the canvas of your personal website spearheading your Personal Branding and e - Marketing Campaign®.In other words, it's a website that serves as a chronicle of your career for the purpose of opening career doors. Now, making a website is one thing, opening career doors is a totally different ball game all together. To build a website, as mentioned earlier, you can watch a video on Youtube. To open career doors, you will need to know the following:

  • SEO and Traffic Creation
  • Content Creation
  • Marketing
  • Online Marketing
  • Direct Online Sales (How to reach the "Decision Makers")

Now don't be overwhelmed, all these things are learnable too, I assure you. Perhaps, let me encourage you by giving you just 3 benefits of having a well working WebsiteResume®:

If You Learn How to Create a Personal Website (WebsiteResume®) You Will:

Increase Your LOA: Which is a sales term, basically it means that the more people you can get to see your WebsiteResume®, the more career openings you receive and the sooner you get there. You don't need to be well versed in sales to see the merit of such a notion.

You can also take it on good word that it works, and it really is that simple, it's just a numbers game, and that's how people sell their services to us as well. The more of us they speak to about the latest smartphone, or anything else, the more they can get the word out, the more people will eventually buy it. All I'm saying is that perhaps it's time you did a little sales and marketing of your own. It will be well worth your time!

Express Your Personality: CEO's are mostly concerned about one thing, achieving the vision of their company or organisation. Now this is the challenge that they all face, that achieving that vision must largely be done by others_ employees. You. Therefore it is of their upmost concern to find the right employee in the right position the first time. Now the right employee comprises 2 major aspects: One who fits into the corporate culture and who brings something new to the table (Competencies, skills, abilities) that will bring the vision of the company closer to fruition. Now this could be anything from the ability to sell (which you can virtually never go wrong with) to a nurturing motherly or fatherly instinct that helps other employees to feel safe, valued and more driven to pursue the company vision (VERY IMPORTANT)! Pay checks give people jobs, it takes someone special to turn an office of strangers into a family unit, but this and many other very valuable and sought after traits aren't traditionally seen on paper resumes.

Stretch your thinking beyond "I've got a degree" thinking and mentality. What's more important than your degree is your story, who you are and therefore what you can achieve! A paper resume doesn't give you the time or the freedom to express your self, a WebsiteResume does! You can express your victories, odds overcome, failures, hopes and dreams in your own words and unique way. This allows your hiring manager to see where you, the human being, fits into the organisation. CEO's really aren't that hard to understand guys, but don't worry we'll demystify them together, and it's important to understand them because they have the "power" to heat up your career very quickly, and a wise person "Seeks first to understand, then to be understood."

Live Forever: A WebsiteResume® gives you the unique opportunity to chronicle your entire career, all the lessons, trials, challenges and victories, every experience and leave behind a memoir of your life and times. Imagine how many lives you can touch through your story, how many people will receive hope and guidance, training and inspiration through your life.

Self realization is vital to the effectiveness of your WebsiteResume® because we CEO's are more interested in who you are, what sets you apart from everyone else and makes you unique. Your personal brand, which means in addition to the list given above, you will need a personal brand: a BrandNewBrandYou®. These things can be expensive, many hundreds of dollars, but if you won't invest in yourself, who will?

Don't Forget to Remember

Just think of me as your inside man letting you know what your managers say and think of you and how you can influence them for a change, it's really not that difficult once you know how, but don't tell them. If you know anyone who needs some inside career advice as well, feel free to share this post with them. It's going to be ok though, everything will be ok. Also feel free to leave a comment below sharing your concerns, enlightenments and questions so we can all grow together.

Anyway, that's me. It's been real...
