It doesn't matter whether you want to create a 4-5 page website or a 15-20 page site, creating a website blueprint in advance is always recommended. It helps to save your precious time, complete the necessary assignments easily and quickly, test your site against different metrics, and make it live ASAP. If there is no website blueprint, a lot of time is spoiled in coding, determination of the structure and layout of the site or its pages, making the required changes, etc. A well-designed website blueprint helps to have the desired website comfortably.

2 Decide Which Content You Want To Use

Before you start the website conversion process, just have a look at the existing HTML website. View all the content and determine whether they are relevant or not. Some posts may not be useful anymore. Therefore, it would be wise to discard all such content. Carry only those contents which offer something new to customers.

3. WordPress Installation On Your System

Now, you should install WordPress on your computer/laptop.

WordPress plugins are helpful tools which allow you to add more features and functionalities and easily meet the rapidly increasing demands of the targeted audience. Just analyze your needs and add useful WordPress plugins to your website. But, don't install too many plugins on your site as it will make your website heavy and slow.
