Blog Post: Build Your First Website with AI in a Day – No Coding Required!

September 4, 2023

Introduction

Ever thought AI could be your web designer? If you've seen my recent LinkedIn post and attached video tutorial, you know it's entirely possible! Grab a coffee ☕ and let's dive deeper into how you can build a website using AI, step-by-step.

Step 1: Identify Your Purpose

Before diving into website creation, it's crucial to identify two key things:

  • Who is this website for?
  • What is the website for?

Case Study: Cheese Crafters 🧀

For instance, let's consider Cheese Crafters, a local artisan cheese shop. The website aims to showcase cheeses, promote workshops, highlight events, and enable online sales.

Step 2: Choose the Right AI Tool

Choosing an AI tool for website building is like selecting the perfect cheese—each has its unique characteristics.

Top 5 AI Website Builders

  • Wix ADI: Great for beginners but limited in features.
  • Hostinger AI: Quick and responsive but offers limited customization.
  • Divi AI: WordPress-friendly but not suitable for everyone.
  • Framer AI: SEO-friendly and intuitive but may require adjustments.
  • 10Web: Advanced and customizable but not beginner-friendly.

For this tutorial, I used Framer AI.

Step 3: Design with AI Templates

Your brand is unique, and your website should reflect that. Choose templates and styles that align with your brand identity.

Branding Tip

For Cheese Crafters, the colour yellow was a must, symbolising the essence of cheese.

Step 4: Customise Content

AI can be your creative sidekick in content customization. Tools like Hostinger AI and Divi AI offer excellent built-in AI functionalities for text, images, and layout. Framer AI starts the job, but GPT-4 can add the magic touch.

Pro Tip

Ask GPT-4 to "Act as an X expert" for tailored advice.

Step 5: Test and Launch

Before launching, preview your website on various platforms—desktop, tablet, and mobile—to ensure responsiveness.

Pro Tip

Iterate and make tweaks to perfect your site.

Conclusion

Congratulations, you've just built a website without any coding! If you're feeling cheesy about your new website, you're not alone.
