So you’ve made the decision to use a website builder for your website and now your sitting there wondering “now what”. Well now that you’ve made the decision to use a Website Builder, you need to pick one.
Picking the right one for you is going to come down to what exactly you want to be able to do with your website, and how you want it to look. Theres a few website builders out there I would recommend you look I to:
Start off by comparing the various designs offered by each builder.
- Wix Designs
- Squarespace Templates
- GoDaddy Website Builder Designs
- WestHost Templates
- Web.com Designs
Pick which website builder has the designs that best fit with your ideas for your own website. Then go through the feature lists for each builder and figure out which one will let you fulfill your ideas. Price really won’t be much of a factor here in deciding as most of the annual plans are priced around the same here.
Once you’ve made your decision it’s time to make that purchase. Right before you do run a quick search for a coupon code or an existing sale for the website builder of your choice. Saving a few bucks never hurts. I often mention coupon codes for various website builders in the blog here.
Once you’ve gotten your purchase squared away it’s time to start customizing and building your website. To avoid getting overwhelmed sit back and plan things out. Start by writing out the different pages your going to have and what content needs to go on each page. Once you have that list together start to put together all of the requirements of each page. Your content, images, etc. It’s a lot easier to dive into this with all your resources ready than to wing it as you go.
Unless you have everything all prepared already – this will probably take you a day or two. Bookmark this post and come back when your ready. Once you have all of your content lined up and ready to go – start knocking things out one page at a time. First off select the theme you originally decided on using – and start inputting all of your content page by page. Once you’re done sit back, give everything a look over and check that all images load properly, and you have no typos anywhere. Finally hit publish/save (depending on the web builder your using) and you’re brand new website is now live and ready for the world!
