Nowadays, graphic designers are going extinct in terms of building websites. Entrepreneurs and CEO’s alike have all begun to practice building their own websites because it is easier than ever. And everyone knows a business’s web presence is almost more important than the actual business in today’s digital wonderland world. We looked into the latest tools and applications for jumpstarting your site and picked our 3 favorites.
Headlining at numero uno, WIX is the best option for those looking for their own html. Unlike other tools, this site allows you to have your own server. Most other websites require that you are a tagged onto their homepage meaning that you have to go through a homepage before you get to your own website. This is counteractive because users can easily get confused with which site they are looking for and web traffic might go down.
WIX allows you to start your page completely from scratch. This allows for a little bit of coding, but mostly you just need to be familiar with InDesign and Photoshop.
For others who aren’t big on Photoshop, the website offers templates to choose from. These are actually really fun because they label all kind of different looking websites. The names of these templates read anywhere from ‘bohemian fashion blog’ to ‘tech website.’
Why we advise that you take the extra step and pay for SEO is because it offers live analytics. This means you can see how many people are viewing your website, for how long and even where your user audience is. Knowing how many page views you are receiving is crucial to your success as a business.
As seen on commercials during the SuperBowl, this website is popular among Millennials.
The only thing that brings this down to number two is that it is a bit pricey. Although it does allow for a free trial period and 24/7 phone customer service.
Just like WIX, it allows you to buy your own server instead of having to visit the SquareSpace head page before you enter your website.
But what really makes this tool great is their creative and colorful templates. These are for sure to catch online viewers eyes, guaranteed by the app. It is great for fashion and art websites because of the clear and concise pictures. It is also incredibly easy to use. The templates are simply a space for you to copy and paste your information in and then the website makes the magic happen.
Although WordPress doesn’t gain the creative points that WIX and SquareSpace use, it has a lot to offer for the price. The free version allows you to unlock almost all of the features and then premium is only about $15 per month which is notably cheaper than the other websites.
This site is best fit for media outlets. Newspapers and blogs will thrive off of this website tool because it allows for longer blog posts. It also allows for quick links to other blogs that are on WordPress.
That being said, the downside of this one is that you have to visit the WordPress homepage before going to your site. This may confuse users.
