Title: Embracing Entrepreneurship After 50: Demystifying Tech
Hello, wonderful women over 50!
Are you an aspiring entrepreneur, dreaming of starting your own business but feel intimidated by the daunting world of technology? Fear not. In this era of digital innovation, age is just a number, and the right tools can make tech your ally, not your adversary. I’m here to share my personal journey and introduce you to a game-changer in the world of web development: Wix.
My Tech Journey: Overcoming the Fear
As a seasoned entrepreneur, I’ve spent a staggering amount over $100,000 on website development throughout my career. Yes, you read that right! I’ve had many WordPress websites and the steep learning curve and expensive cybersecurity plug-ins that comes with them. The digital landscape used to be a complex maze, often requiring hefty investments and technical expertise. However, the evolution of web-building platforms has revolutionized this process, making it accessible to everyone – especially for us vibrant women over 50 who are brimming with ideas and experience but want to cut the learning curve time (and the budget) in half or less.
A Revelation in Web Building
Wix emerged as a revelation to me, and here’s why it can be a digital companion for you to consider too:
- User-Friendly Interface: Wix is designed for absolute beginners. Its drag-and-drop interface means you don’t need to know a single line of coding. If you can use a word processor, you can build a Wix website!
- Customizable Templates: Feeling creative? Wix offers a plethora of templates tailored to various industries. Whether you’re launching a boutique, starting a consultancy, or opening a bakery, there’s a design waiting for you.
- Affordable Pricing: Gone are the days of draining your savings on a website. Wix offers various pricing plans, including a free option, making it a budget-friendly choice for budding entrepreneurs.
- Robust Backend Features: Wix isn’t just about pretty fronts. It provides a strong backend system, allowing you to manage your business effectively. From e-commerce capabilities to appointment scheduling, Wix has got you covered.
- SEO and Marketing Tools: Wix understands the importance of being seen. It offers built-in SEO and marketing tools to help your website rank better and reach your target audience.
Starting Your Wix Journey
Creating a website with Wix is like baking a cake with a pre-made mix – simpler and delightful. Here’s how you can start:
- Sign Up: Visit Wix.com and sign up. It’s straightforward and free to start.
- Choose a Template: Explore the templates and pick one that resonates with your business vision.
- Customize Your Site: Add your text, images, and tweak the design to suit your brand. It’s all about dragging and dropping elements.
- Go Live: Once you’re happy with your site, hit publish. Yes, it’s that simple!
Embrace the Digital Age, Fearlessly
Ladies, it’s never too late to chase your entrepreneurial dreams. The digital world is no longer a barrier but a bridge to achieving our goals. With platforms like Wix, Squarespace and the like, the power to create and thrive in the online space is at our fingertips. For this website, I am a publisher and course creator and blogger, and for affiliate marketing, I have found WP is superior, but that rationale is fodder for another post. so Wix was not the best choice. I am typing this psot on WordPress. But other more static sites I run, such as CorelifeGroup.com are built happily and easily on Wix. And that was the OLD Wix, the new AI driven platform is even better, IMO.
Remember, our wisdom, experience, and perspectives are invaluable assets in the business world. So let’s break the age stereotypes and show the world the powerhouse entrepreneurs that we are.
