WHAT IS A WEBSITE BUILDER?
Whether youre just starting a business or want
to move your existing brick and mortar business
online, youll need to locate a website builder
to get you and your brand online. Website
builders come with a variety of options, so it is
important to find one that fits you and your
website.

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOSTED SOLUTION
OR SELF HOSTED SOFTWARE?
In a hosted solution you pay a monthly fee to
have the software housed and managed by a third
party company. You dont have to worry about
finding a hosting company or software
updates. Website builders that are self hosted
will require you to purchase a hosting plan from
a third party company, install the web builder
software from another company, and youll need
perform software updates. Dont let that last
comment scare you. There are many hosting
companies that will manage software updates for
you and you dont have to touch a thing.

CONSIDERATIONS FOR PICKING A WEBSITE BUILDER
Content Ownership You need to own your content.
That may seem simple, but some platforms control
your data. Similar to you using Facebook and
Facebook having ultimate control of what resides
on your profile or page. A website is your window
into the world, so make sure the content you add
is owned and controlled by you!
Custom Domain and Branding Your website
deserves a unique domain. A domain is simply the
address of your website. Think of a domain like
house number used by the post office to locate
you. You want your domain (aka URL) to be unique
and memorable. Make sure your website builder
allows for this and doesnt make you use an
extension of their URL.

Available Design Templates
Some website builders will offer beautiful
templates that are modern in both appearance and
functionality. Some others look like they were
created a decade ago, or worse yet, were coded by
a developer and without the aid for a graphic
artist. Make sure your chosen builder has a
plentiful supply of templates for you to pick
from and try out.
7
FUNCTIONALITY OPTIONS
Think about the purpose of the website before you
hit that buy button. Do you need e- commerce,
podcast support, video integration, forum
management, or lead generation? Make sure your
chosen website builder supports the functionality
you need and possibly want down the road. While
some software options like WordPress.org
allow you to add plugins and extensions, not all
do.
8
Ease of Use
Websites should be kept fresh and serve as living
documents. For this to be the case, they have to
be easy to use and provide a WYSIWYG style
editor. WYSIWYG stands for what you see is what
you get. Solid website builders will make adding
and editing content as easy as working in a Word
file. Make sure you review your preferred
builders content options and make sure it
provides a tool youre comfortable with using.

We live in a multimedia world. People expect
written content, videos, images, and audio files.
A quality software package will offer all of
these and allow you to add such files
effortlessly.

  • In many cases, the off-the-shelf templates wont
    be a perfect fit for your website. You might need
    to customize the colors or layout slightly.
    Review your website softwares options and make
    sure you have the ability to edit the design and
    layout as needed.

LEAD GENERATION OPPORTUNITIES
A good website will produce positive results for
its owners. In many cases, this means lead
generation. Not all website builders will make
this easy, so consider the software and its
ability to quickly add, edit, or customize intake
forms.
12
SPEED AND PERFORMANCE
Because mobile is a much have feature, speed and
performance will be too. Your website has to load
fast and not chew through a ton of mobile data.
