Top 5 Website Builders

Many small businesses on a limited budget are opting to build their own website, and today’s website builder technology is making it easier and simpler. You don’t have to be a developer to create a website… you just have to have the time and patience to learn how to use the available tools. If you are inclined to create a website yourself, then one of the following website builders might be a good fit. With so many options, it can be overwhelming to choose the right website builder for your project. We’ve compiled a list of the top 5 best website builders.

On the other hand, if you are a busy business owner, or if you aren’t inclined to spend much time in front of your computer, then hiring a web designer will be your best bet. If you can find a designer/developer who you click with, he or she could become a valuable member of your team!

Be warned that most website builders offer a free trial, but you will eventually have to cough up your credit card, and also know that the base price doesn’t always include extras like an email address, online shopping pages or stock photos. Be sure to do your research before spending hours laying out your site.

Again, hiring a web developer may be your best option, and it may cost you less in the long run, depending on how much your time if worth.
