These days, almost everyone has a website. Some websites are for businesses, and others are for personal hobbies and ideas. But what do you do if you need a website and you don’t have a clue how to begin? Then, it’s time to find a friendly nerd who loves web design. A good web designer can help you create a cohesive and beautiful website.

Web design isn’t always difficult, but there are many things to think about, especially if you want to push a product. You will need to think about your brand and how people should see your company. This includes big ideas, like your brand’s personality and values. But it also includes many small details, like choosing fonts and color palettes.

Romeo needs help with his new WordPress website, so he talks to his favorite nerd, Gary. Learn about Gary’s web design ideas in today’s English lesson.

Romeo:  Thinking about starting up a WordPress site.

Gary:  Are you really?

Romeo:  Yeah, I need to sell some products and maybe start a blog. But I have no clue what I’m doing.

Gary:  Wow! Do you need some help with web design?

Romeo:  I came to the nerd

Gary:  Well, we can go ahead and dive in, get some of your ideas together, put it out on the web. What we’ll do is create a cohesive style so your brand comes through.

Romeo:  OK.

Gary:  And of course, we’ll make sure that the fonts are all pretty and look exactly the way in your business as they do on the website.

Romeo:  Awesome.

Gary:  We’ll make sure that the color palettes look as green in your office as they do on your About page.

Romeo:  Awesome.

Gary:  Make it look nice and simple.

Romeo:  OK. What about branding? I want to make sure I get my marketing and branding out there so that I can help push my product.

Gary:  Yeah, we probably should record a video of you…

Romeo:  OK.

Gary:  … so people get to know who you are.

Romeo:  OK, I like that idea.

Gary:  So, do you have anyone to host your website?

Romeo:  Yes, you!

Gary:  Oh! OK… I’ll get that set up tonight.

Romeo:  OK. And you’re also in charge of the marketing.

Gary:  Got it.

Romeo:  OK. And your deadline is tomorrow.

Gary:  I figured no less.

Romeo:  Awesome!

I have a website (http://russia-in-law.ru/) and it’s rather popular. Thousands of people visit it every day. I learned how to make it 4 years ago.  So I can say, it’s easy to create, but it’s not so easy to make people visit it.

 I have not gotten the exact meaning of the website. Is it a personal blog or personal space on the net or the commercial operation website? The article seems to be the last one. I have no commercial operation website. But I have my own space  one the net such as QQ space, the circle of friends in Wechat.



   What does the brand mean in here? I don’t know. I can’t understand it. I thought it maybe mean commercial something.
