Weebly is one of myfavorite free hostingservices. I love theirwebsite builder! It’s soeasy to use!
Before you can use it,you must create anaccount.
You can either connectthe service to yourFacebook account …
… or you can sign up theold-fashioned way: byproviding your name,email, and password.
Once you have signedup, you can now log in.
Click the Facebook tabor enter your email andpassword.
To build a website, clickthe orange “Add Site”button.
Enter the title of yourlanding page.
I suggest that you nameit as something like,“Thank you for joiningmy list.”
Select “Other” in the“Type of Site”dropdown menu.
Hit the continue     button.
You will be prompted toselect a websitedomain.
Select “Use a subdomain of Weebly.com” and hit the      orange button.
You will be brought to the     website editor.
To change the theme of thewebsite, click the “Design”            tab.
You will see this:
To get a better look of all theavailable themes, click on “All           Themes.”
You will find a gallery ofthemes. Click on the theme          you like.
This is a good theme for a      landing page:
When you click on the themeyou like, you will be shown a           preview.
Click “Use Theme” to use the      design you want.
Make sure that these are all       turned off:
Click to turn off:
To remove the header, hover your mouse on the picture and click on the gear icon.
Select “No Header.”
See, the picture is gone!
To add text and pictures toyour landing page, click on    the “Elements” tab.
You will find elements of the  website, which you can        simply drag.
Let’s say you want to add      some title text.
Drag the “Title Text” icon into the website area.
You will see the words “Click        here to edit.”
Now, obviously, you know     what to do. 
When you click, the areawhere the text should be will   have a yellow outline.
Enter your text.
This tool bar here will help  you format the text (bold,italicize, change the font size,              etc.)
Use this to make your text           bold.
Use the plus (+) or minus (-)sign to change the size of the            font.
Use this to hyperlink your text:
To insert a picture, drag the       picture icon.
Click the blue rectangle toupload a photo from your        computer.
Then, click the green bar.
Here’s the picture:
You may want to reward yoursubscribers by giving them a   freebie like an e-book.
So how do you upload a file on a         Weebly site?
See this?
Let’s take a closer look:
Click the link icon:
This will appear:
Click “File on your website.”
Click “upload a file.”
Choose the file you want to         upload.
There are a few things you still         need to do.
Click the “Pages” tab.
You will see this:
Click the orange “Add a Page”           button.
Click “External Link” in the     black dropdown.
Type the name of your mainwebsite or you can simply type  “blog” if you have a blog.
Type the link to your blog or  website and click “Save         Settings.”
You will see this:
Don’t worry about the picture.The tab that has your main site  name or your blog’s title willlead people to your site or b...
Click “Advanced Settings.”
You will see this:
Scroll down a bit further and  check the box that says:“Hide this page from search          engines.”
Hit the “Save Settings” button.
Why would you want your site to be hidden from search         engines?
Because your freebie, which is only for your subscribers, is available through that site.
You wouldn’t want it to befound on search engines.
Why?
Because your freebie is meant to be downloaded by people who give you their email addresses!
They should get your freebie byentering their name and email   in your “email catcher.”
When your site is ready, hit the  orange “Publish” button.
There you go!
The End. 
