What type of Website do you want to create

We can break this down into 7 categories.

There are also 3 types of websites.

You could also use your website purpose as one.

Only 6 websites to choose from

1) Authors, Speakers, Coaches, Consultants: These are people who are selling information products, books, masterminds, coaching, consulting, live events, and more. While these industries are different, the types of funnel they use and how they use them are very similar.

2) Professional Services: There are a lot of different types of professional services. This would include businesses like real estate agents, dentists, financial and insurance agents, plumbers, dog walking and more.

3) Retail / Brick and Morter: Retail would include restaurants, gyms, spas, salons, entertainment, auto shops and more

4) Ecommerce: Ecommerce are physical products such as those typically sold on Amazon, Shopify, Etsy, eBay, and other online stores.

5) Network and Affiliating Marketing: These are people selling other people’s products, so it could include distributors, affiliates, people doing home parties, direct sales. etc

6) Business to Business: The last category is B2B. This is anyone selling any type of product or service, consulting, equipment, or more from one business to another.



The 7 categories

1) Business Services Website
Main Purpose: To inspire someone to use your services

Secondary Purpose: Provide information, answer FAQ’s, answer why you and not another business, contact details.

2) Business Products Website
Main Purpose: To inspire someone to buy your products online

Secondary Purpose: Provide information, answer FAQ’s, answer why you and not another business, contact details.

Track packages online. Customer complaints. Refunds.

With either a product or service website you can now narrow the type of website for each one in this extra area called the 3 types of websites.

The 3 types of websites

1) One Page Website

The first type of website you could have would be a one page website.

A one page website displays all the information you need about you or your company and gives the website visitor all they need to know.

This type of website would be mainly used for a business with 1 main service or product

2) Standard Website

This is your typical website with the following pages below

Home | About | Services | Contact

The home page would either be about you or a page with a description for each other page.

This would be mainly used for a business with more than 1 service

3) Online Store

This would be the same as a standard website except you sell products online.

Back to the 8 categories

3) Blog

There are 3 types of Blogs, 2 are for personal reasons 1 can be for business.

Main Purpose Personal Blog 1: Share your thoughts with the world online

Example you have a passion that you want to share with someone. My mum homeschooled me and my brothers and sisters, if that was you, you could share that.

This blog wasn’t started with the intention of making money, purely to just write or share.

However you can make money by adding links like below.

Main Purpose Personal Blog 2: Earn money from blogging

Example you would have your blog set up as an affiliate blog. You write articles based on your passion of affiliate. Lets say grooming products.

You write about the best ways to look with links in your articles to the grooming products pages.

This blog is entirely money based. Pretty much every article will be written with links to affiliate websites.

Main Purpose Business Blog 3: Used as a marketing tool to raise awareness of your service or product.

Example you sell Star Wars Tshirts you could write a blog named the top 10 star wars gifts, including your T shirt as one of them – this raises awareness and leads them to your Business Website.

This blog is an addition to your business service or products website.

4) Portfolio

There are 2 main purposes for having portfolio

This website would be to share your work such as art, photography and design work

Main Purpose 1: You want to upload your work to share online with others for likes and nice comments

Main Purpose 2: You want to showcase your work to get job offers

Main Purpose 3: You want to sell your work online as downloads

5) CV, About me

This website would be for anyone who wants to create an about me website or if you’re looking for a job you can have a website saying how great you are.

The website generally used in this would be a one page website.

You could also boost it by adding a personal blog to bring awareness about your job level

6) Event or Occasion

Let’s say you’re having a wedding, birthday party or event of the year this is the area you would have your website.

Generally you could fit all the information needed into a One page Website

You can also sell tickets or take bookings online, which would probably end up on another page

7) Restaurant

With the theme of 3 there are 3 types of restaurant websites you could have

Main Purpose 1: Your website is to promote your restaurant with the main aim to get people to visit

Most of the information could fit on a one page website or a standard website.

Main Purpose 2: Your website is a place for people to order food from.

This can be a one page website or a standard type website.

Main Purpose 3: A mixture of both.

There we go. That’s the main majority of website types you could have.

Of course there are so much more than this and I will try to update and increase the list as time allows.

One major one I would like to add would be an information website and an online estate agency.
