How to transfer your existing website to BusinessWebFactory…

Transferring your website is a fantastic opportunity to review and improve it. As you already have a template layout, you’ll know exactly which parts work and which parts require review.

Having a website already means you have a resource of material at your disposal. This is an enormous advantage over those businesses starting from scratch. You can analyse the success of your existing website and look at how well you managed to target your best customer types.

How to use the information on your existing website…

  1. Extract all your images from your existing website and place them in a specified folder in your BusinessWebFactory website. This can be achieved by right clicking on the image to open a pop-up window. Select 'Save Picture As...' and choose a folder on your PC to save it.
