Building a website is the biggest obstacle for most moms trying to start a business. Trying to decide where to get hosting, then HOW to build it, figuring out how to put up images. . . well, it just keeps getting more complicated. When I first started, I did the research and found that free websites had many issues that convinced me that wasn’t the way to start a business. It ended up taking me over a year to ‘learn the ropes’ of finding the right hosting company, learning the best way to write a website, etc, etc, etc.
Recently I discovered Yola. It’s a free web builder that also hosts your site. So, what’s the catch? No catch that I could find. I went in and built a small site to check it out and it’s really quite easy and offers a variety of useful tools for creating a professional-looking and money making website. You don’t have unlimited space, so their hope is as you grow, you will stay with them and purchase some of their ‘premium’ services.
Yola will give you a great start for NO up front investment OR your credit card number. They will even set you up with a free subdomain name. You can’t beat the price, that’s for sure! Check it out. There are two others that are almost as good, and some find Webnode much easier to master. They are all relatively simple to use.
