So I'll go in here and add my email address so people can contact me. And then I'm just going to click this show email on the website. I'm going to add my phone number, too, because I want people to be able to contact me that way, and I'm going to save that.
Add Contact Details and Social Media To Your Website
And my phone number and email are there. If you have a Facebook page for your business or something like that, you can copy and paste it into your Facebook page. So I'll type in mine here and then save that same for any of the other social media links. And then it's just clickable right there on your website and link. Now for this section, you can update this section, too, and add more menu items. If you want to add more links to your website to other places, you can do that right here. You can also update your logo. So if you have a logo, browse your computer and upload it. If you don't have a logo, check out canva.com. It's a really easy place to create a logo, so I'm going over it and searching for Painter.
Upload or Create A Logo For Your Painting Business
And so let's see what we have. Yeah, House Painting Shop. Perfect. So there's like a nice simple logo for my painting contractor business. I'm saving this logo and downloading it to my computer as a jpeg. So again, Canva made it easy for me to create a logo for my business, but if you already have one, you can upload it from your computer. So I'm going to go back over here to Mighty Sites. I'm going to upload my logo, and this'll upload and save easily. So as soon as I do that, click save. Now you can see my logo, it's small, so I'm going to click on this button to make it bigger.
But I would like to fix this image. I'm going to click on this pencil here. And Mighty Sites comes with all of these image and logo editing tools. I'm going to crop my logo right there like that. But I can also add filters or background or a frame. All these tools are built in for me to use, but I will crop it like that for now. And then let that upload and re-save my logo, and you can see where we go. Now that's much better. I'm going to make it a little smaller now by clicking on the "make it smaller" button. So I'll save that, close it. So now my contact information there, my logo where I'm my city that I'm in some links now I can go down here and maybe make some edits to this.
Edit The Hero Image and Text
So if I want to, I can change this hero text. So I'll say, like leading a house painting business. Anything I want to edit here is really easy to do. And then book your free estimate. If you have an online booking, you can link to that. Or if you want to say something like a call for a quote, you can change that text too. And then change the link. So I'll change this to a link to call me, right? If somebody wants a quote, make it super simple and easy. Now, if someone's on my website on mobile, they can click on call for a quote and then call my business today. So that's easy to do. The next thing I'm gonna to do is scroll down. Here we are a painting company. I can change any of this, too, so I won't contact the contact us button to link to my lead form.
Edit Your Call-To-Action Buttons
So I'll go to the lead form, click confirm, and save that. And now, if someone clicks on Contact Us, take them to this lead form on my new website. So you know, they can contact me, and I'll see that they need a painting contractor and know a little bit about them and contact them. So I'll show you how that works in a sec. But you can change any of these images just by uploading a new image or changing any text just by simply typing what you want it to be. So I'll show you here. This is how you make a website for a painting contractor. So that's easy to do. Just save that and close it. So you can see any of this text and upload and edit any of the images too.
Now the other thing you can do is if you prefer a different color theme. You may have a, you know, a different color theme or different brand logo. I made mine blue, but maybe you like red and green, or your business's color is orange, pink, or light blue. You can pick through all of these different color themes or gold and pick the one that makes sense and matches the look you're going for with your website. But because of the color of my logo, I'm going to leave it navy blue.
Connect A Custom Domain Name
I'm pretty close to being done with my new website, which is ready for me to connect my domain and launch. So if I click on stop editing, you can see what this site looks like on a screen. Now without those update buttons, I have a simple professional website for my painting business.
Manage Painting Leads Through Your Contact Form in Your Website Dashboard
Just like that, right? That only took a couple of minutes, and I'm pretty well done and can launch this to help get leads for my business. What do leads look like if I go here? Let's say I typed in my name and email address, came to your website, and I'm interested in a painter. Put my phone number and now say I want to paint my house. Okay, so simple message, click send. Now, as a customer, I'll get this thank you for a message. And if I go back up here, you will get an email as the business owner saying that you have a new lead. And if you click on this, you'll be able to see your leads dashboard to see all of the potential new business coming to you through your website. Now, you can go back here to connect a domain.

You'll get simple, straightforward instructions about what you need to do to make the quick updates with your registrar or to give them the instructions to make those updates for you. That'll allow you to connect your domain, and you'll be all set and ready to go to launch your website. You can go back here to make edits to your site or updates at any time you want.
