So I'm gonna head to the top very quickly, and I'm gonna go ahead and search for my market: cocktail bar. There it is over there.

And there you have it, it's literally done it in not even a minute. So let's take a closer look together quickly. Now, the beauty of Mighty Sites is we've pre-written all the content for you, as a guideline of course. We've also pre-selected all the images as well. They're all really high quality, as you can see, and they're completely free to use. However, I'm sure you've got some amazing images of all the wonderful cocktails you're serving up in your bar, and you want to showcase them on your website. Maybe make one or two changes to that content; you can do that.
So today, that's exactly what I'm going to be showing you. Let's go ahead and click on the first section at the top, go ahead and put in our company email address as well as our phone number. Let's go ahead and check this box to display our email address on our website. I'm not gonna go ahead and pop my phone number in, as well as my physical location, my Street's address. The great thing about that physical location that I've just put in, when your customers click on it, when your website is live, it'll automatically take them to Google Maps to get directions to your physical location.
Under update Social Links is where you can put in your various social media platforms your business is active on; that icons will be displayed at the top as well as the bottom of your website, so your customers can easily give you a follow, get some engagement going, see what your business is up to. Let's head on over to update logo. If you don't have a logo yet, I recommend you check out canva.com, lots of great free options on the website. Once your logo has been uploaded, if you want to go ahead and crop it to fit into the section better, and rotate it, zoom in, add filters, go ahead and click on the little pencil.
I'm now going to go ahead and save, and once I've done so, I can make it bigger and smaller by clicking on these buttons on the side. Now with Mighty Sites as well, we've pre-selected all the colors for you for your website. If you want to change them, you don't need to know color coding. All you need to do is click on the little Paint Bucket, go through the various color palettes available for you to use, so many to choose from. I'm quite spoiled for choice here. Awesome, I'm now going to go ahead and save that.
Now under each section, you can click on updates and change the content to suit your needs. Each button can link to various places. This currently says order online, but maybe you just wanted to say view our menu, so people can see what cocktails you are serving up, maybe some bar snacks. Go ahead and choose link, you can link to another website if you're offering an online ordering system, an action like click to call, directions, click to email, otherwise you could upload a PDF file with your menu of your different bar snacks and cocktails you are serving up. Awesome, let's go ahead and save that.
For each section that has images, you can browse your device and upload one of your own, otherwise search through the photo library, hundreds of images to choose from, all completely free to use. You can play around with the keywords a little bit, and search for various keywords. Now over here under this section is where you can put in your trading hours for your cocktail bar. Once you put them in, they will be displayed in this section over here.
As I said, go ahead and click on upgrade section, and make the necessary changes. Now if you have a custom domain for your business, go ahead and click on connect your domain.
