Briefly the first few steps you would follow when setting up your WordPress goes as follows:
When you have chosen which package you want to take out with WordPress, you then move on to selecting your domain name and choosing your hosting provider for WordPress. Just to break it down, your domain name is like a home address. It is how your visitors will be able to locate you online. The hosting provider is where the website is actually stored.
Once you have all that set up you can then begin to customise your website using WordPress’ themes and templates. This allows you to choose colours, styles, fonts and formatting. The themes that are available to you are very versatile meaning they will suit a variety of business types.
After you have chosen your theme you can now upload a post to your website. This post button is mainly used for blogs and portfolios because they automatically place your newest content at the top. If you want to add pages to your website then you follow a similar process to the posts. You click on page and then fill out the title of your page and whatever information you want to include. Once you have finished, you can simply click save as draft or publish. By selecting publish, the page will go live straight away.
The main thing to remember with WordPress is focus on the basics. By getting to grips with the basics you can create an excellent user experience which will increase your traffic.
