Build your website!


Learn how to build your website. ​

Why should you have a website on ESAConnection?

First, it’s quick, easy & affordable.  We know what you need because we have been where you are.  Some of the first benefits you will get from subscribing to our website are access to our volume discounts.  You will also spend far less time working on the start-up of your business and much more time building your business by spending your time with parents & learners.

We invested heavily up front and we continue to invest heavily each month with our experts in Search Engine Optimalization (SEO) and digital marketing.  This will ensure that we are at or near the top of the page when parents are searching for educational services.  This is due to the cumulative traffic that our site hosting provides and the meticulous attention to detail (like key words) that our experts in digital marketing provide to ESAConnection.com and all of the subscriber websites that we host.

If you don’t have a custom domain, we have great news… you will get a free domain when you set up your website with us as part of your subscription. It will look something like “esaconnection.com/yourcompanyname” .
If you prefer to have a custom domain like we refer to in Step #3, click on “get my domain” and follow the instructions.

If you already have a custom domain and a website that you don’t want to keep, click on the “redirect link” and follow the instructions to use this domain for your new free ESAConnection website. Be sure to cancel your current website hosting account.

Follow the tips and instructions below and build a great website through ESAConnection in no time!

The first tip is to use this free image sizer to resize all of your photos to 1280 X 853 or less, then drop them in your website build “Media Library” as shown in the video.

First, search for your name in your state’s Corporate Commission’s web site to make sure the name you want to use is not already taken. If it is taken, choose another name.

There are many free logo makers available online. While you are at it, many of these sites allow you to quickly create business cards.  You may want to go ahead and order them now while you are there.

This will appear at the top of your profile in larger font. This should be a short “call to action” (less than 250 characters) to provide parents a reason to choose you. Example: Are you ready to engage in a learning experience that meets your child’s needs? You’ve come to the right place!


In this section include why are you passionate about your business. What’s your vision… your mission…your reason for your business? How will you work with parents? What makes you different? Be brilliant but be brief. This space is limited to 2,500 characters.

This section is limited to 2,500 characters.
