They're completely free for you to use. However, I'm sure you've got your own images of all the amazing meals you're serving up. You want to display them on your website; you can do that. So today, I'm going to be showing you exactly how to do that. To use the Mighty Sites platform, it's super simple. You don't need to know coding; you don't need to be a web developer or possess any web development skills. Anybody can do this; you don't need to hire anyone to help you. So let's get cracking. I'm gonna go ahead and click on the first section at the top and go ahead and put in my company email address, so it is visible on my website.

I want to make sure the box underneath that email address is picked, so it can display my email address on my website. Awesome, let's go ahead and pop my phone number in, and that is click-to-call, by the way. I'm now going to go ahead and put in my physical location, my street's address for my business. The great thing about that location: when your website is live, and your customers click on that button, it will automatically take them to Google Maps to get directions to your physical location. Let's head on over to updating our social links. Over here, you can pop in the various social media platforms your business is active on. Icons will be displayed at the top, as well as at the bottom.

Now, I'm going to go ahead and update my logo. If you don't have a logo yet, I recommend you check out Lots of great free options on the website. The logo has just been uploaded. If you want to crop it, add filters, decorate it, add frames, go ahead and click on the little pencil over the logo. I'm gonna go ahead and click on save, and you can make it bigger and smaller on the right. Awesome.

As well, we've pre-selected all the colors for you, used throughout your websites. If you want to change it, so it goes a little bit better with your branding, your message, your marketing, logo, go ahead and click on the little pen bucket on the bottom right-hand corner. No color coding necessary. Awesome.

For each section you want to update, maybe make amendments to the images, the buttons, go ahead and click on upgrade section directly underneath it. I'm now going to go ahead and head over to update image. Over here, you can browse your device and upload your own images. Otherwise, search through the photo library, hundreds of images to choose from.

For the content, go ahead and click on update content. The button currently says "order online". You can link all these buttons to various places. Maybe you don't offer an ordering system, and you just want it to say "view menu", so people can have a look at your menu before they pop into your restaurant. You can link to another website for those buttons. Perhaps you do offer an online ordering system, otherwise an action like "get directions", or upload a PDF file, which is a great way to display your menu on your website. When your customers click on that button, it will automatically take them to your menu in this section.

The next section over here, you can put in your trading hours for your business that your restaurant is open. Go ahead and pop them in over here, and they will be displayed on your website, so your customers know your trading hours. For each section, again, if you want to make amendments, change the content that was pre-written for you, the images, just go ahead and click on update section and work your magic.

If you've got a custom domain for your Australian restaurant, go ahead and click on "connect your domain". So, I already have a domain; go through the various steps and linking notes. If you don't have a domain, click "I want a new domain" because you can now purchase your domain via the Mighty Sites platform, just to make your website look even more professional.
