Once you've joined the platform, the very first thing it's going to ask you to do at the top is to search for your market. We have hundreds of different markets to choose from, and we are adding more markets every single week. So usually, I'd head to the top and search for my market, but I can actually see it right here. So I'm going to go ahead and select that option. Now, let's enter a few basic details about our animation studio, so it can generate a simple website for us. I'm going to go ahead and pop in my city and my state's origin here, and it doesn't matter where in the world your business is located, you can enjoy the Mighty Sites Service. We have happy users from all around the globe. Let's go ahead and click on continue and let Marty sites work its magic and create a simple website for my business.

And there you have it, it's literally done it in not even a minute. Let's take a closer look at what it's come up with together. Now, the piece 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; they are all really high quality, as you can see, completely free for you to use as well. However, I'm sure you've got some absolutely amazing images of all the various animations you have designed, and you want to showcase them on your website for potential clients to see. You can absolutely do that; it's super simple. You don't need to know website coding at all, you don't need to have any web professional skills, and you certainly don't need to hire anyone to help you with this either. You can literally do it all yourself. So let's get cracking. I'm going to click on the first section at the top, pop in my email address over here. I want to make sure that is visible on my website, so my customers can easily reach out. So I'm gonna go ahead and tick the box. Also, let's pop in our phone number over here. That is click to call, by the way. Our physical location, our street address, if you have one. When your website's live, your customers can actually click on that address, and it'll take them to Google maps to get directions to your physical location.

And update social links. You can put in the various social media platforms your business is active on. Icons will be displayed at the top as well as at the bottom. If you've got a business logo, go on over to update logo. Once your logo has been uploaded, if you want to make slight amendments, so crop it, rotate it, zoom in, add photos frames, click on that pencil directly over it to make the amendments. Otherwise, click on Save. Over here, on the right, you can make the logo bigger and smaller. If you want to change the colors used throughout the website that we pre-selected for you, you don't need to know color coding. Click on the paint bucket, bottom right-hand corner. Go through the various color palettes available for you to use. For each section you want to make amendments to, click on upgrade section directly underneath it. Head on over to upgrade image. First, over here you can browse your device and upload your own images, search through the photo library, hundreds of images to choose from. And Mighty Sites now gives you the option to actually connect your Instagram accounts and pull in your Instagram images directly from your account. So let's go ahead and do that. I'm literally just linking to my handyman server, so not really relating to an animation studio, but I just wanted to give you a little idea of how easy it is to link and pull in those images. Awesome, let's go back to that section. Click on update image. Over here again, you can now select from your Instagram accounts and go through the various images that have been pulled in through your Instagram accounts. Let's wait for that to load one second.

Okay, let's move on for now. We'll go back to that one. Under upgrade action, over here you can mend the buttons, you can choose a link for your button, you can link to a PDF, upload a PDF, otherwise link to another website, if need be, as well as an action, which is really great. And update content is where you can change the content that was pre-written for you.

Awesome, look at that, this looks absolutely fantastic. Now, over here it's automatically pulled in my Instagram images. If you want to change that, click on upgrade section. You can choose one image perhaps that you want there. Otherwise, you can click on upgrade design, go to layout options, and just change the various layouts. At the moment, as I said, it's pulled in every single image. Maybe you want to display just one or two there.

In a last section, so your customers can reach out to you by the lead form, or they need to just put in their details, click on send, and you will get notified by your registered email that you have a new lead from that form. With Mighty Sites as well, you can also connect your custom domain if you have one, by clicking on connect your domain. If you don't have a domain yet, you can actually purchase one now via the multi-size platform to make your website look even more professional and trustworthy.
