Easy Website Builders

You don't have to listen to the radio or watch TV long before you come across an ad for some outfit that claims to allow you to build your own website in a matter of minutes. More seem to pop up every day. Some of these are from hosting companies like GoDaddy.com or 1and1.com, others are independent companies like Wix and Squarespace. We've covered others on this site ike Wordpress.com or Google Sites. For a more complete list of this ever-changing landscape, see the Easy Web Builders List. I wish they'd list the date on their reviews as some seem a bit dated. Also note, they don't exactly practice what they preach, becsue easywebbuilderslist.net site is actually powered by WordPress. Regardless, take a look around and see if their price and features are in line with your needs. Here's homework to help you select a candidate service:

Homework:

Before looking into easy website builders, consider:

What are your needs for a site? Simple text? Google Maps? Photo Galleries? Videos?

What kinds of social media do you need to integrate with? Facebook? Twitter, Pinterest? YouTube Videos?

Look through the listings and examples of the website builders. Do they have good-looking templates? Do they offer free trials?

Select the top 3 contenders and spend 15 minutes on each. If you can't pick it up by then and make something useful, then it doesn't qualify as easy. Go to the next service.
