Hover over the suitable template and click Start editing to proceed with creating your site:

The template in the editor consists of the blocks — full-width sets of the elements that are easily adaptable to different screen resolutions. Text, images, buttons and other block contents are called elements. They are usually gathered in columns or collections for quick customization. To see how you can edit those elements or columns, visit the article Managing elements.

Once you open the site's editor, fill the template with the relevant copy that will describe what your company is about — change the text, insert your own images or change the contact information. Also, customize the layout of your contact form to collect the requests from your visitors.

Make sure your site doesn't have any dead ends that can spoil the user experience. For that, link all relevant elements on your site — buttons, emails, phone numbers, etc. Check the article Adding links to elements (click action) for detailed instructions.

If you noticed that the structure of the template doesn't fully meet your needs, you can add new blocks to the site or move the existing ones. Moreover, you can enrich the look of your blocks by adding additional elements to them — more buttons, lists, dividers or social icons.

If you are not satisfied with the color palette used on your future site, you can adjust the Site Style tab in the toolbar. Beside the site's color palette you can also change fonts or button design of your template. For that, click on three dots near the Preview button in the toolbar and access the Site Style in the dropdown:

After you set up your page's primary content, you can switch between the existing pages of the template or add new ones in the toolbar.

These pages are accessible only by a direct link. If you'd like the page to be seen in the site's navigation menu, you should link the elements in the menu of your header or footer. For that, follow the steps in the article Menu bar settings.

To proceed with customization the template, change the logo of the site, set up the global social links, change the site address and set up unique URLs for your pages. Make sure to customize the site name in the browser tab to secure your branding.

Once you are ready to go live, upgrade your site to Pro subscription. This will allow you to connect your domain, add your custom code to the site and appear in the search results of Google and other search engines. Check the article Comparison of the Free, Trial, and Pro subscriptions to see detailed comparison of all the plans on Weblium.

Publish your site to make it live and accessible by a link. You can still edit your site after publishing.

After all these steps, you can do extra improvements and launch your blog or add Google Maps to the site. Moreover, you can also add various analytics to track the activity on your website or connect different third-party services that will help you to manage your form requests. You can discover all the available integrations in the relevant section of our Help Center: Integrations.
