Are you struggling to work out which is the best platform to build your website in? There's lots of great, and not so great, website builders to choose from. How do you know which one is the right one for you?

Choosing the right platform, from the beginning, can save you lots of time and keep those frustrating technical problems to a minimum.

We've road tested over a dozen different platforms to bring you the best three.

This course explores 3 platforms that are ideal for do-it-yourself website builders. We objectively look at the pros and cons of each platform and demonstrate the templates and editing process. To make it into our curated list, each platform is required to have:

  1. Unlimited free trial
  2. Support desk
  3. Good documentation

Unlimited Free Trial

An unlimited free trial enables you to play around in the builder for as long as you like until you're ready to hit the go button and add your own web address (domain name). This gives you plenty of time to learn how to use the platform and see if it is right for you.

Support Desk

When you get stuck, you need someone at the other end who can help you trouble-shoot the issue. All 3 platforms we feature in our do-it-yourself website course have a support desk.

Good Documentation

Whether it's videos or how-to-articles, being able to access documentation or watch a video to trouble-shoot issues is important for your do-it-yourself website project.

3 Demonstration Websites

  • One pager website with a sign up form
  • Online personal CV
  • Business website

One Pager Website with a Sign Up Form

This platform is perfect for you if you are

  • Launching a new product
  • Registering attendees for a live Q&A, live demo or event
  • Subscribing people to your newsletter

Online Personal CV

The course dives into a template that has lots of great templates, including templates for:

  • Actors
  • Virtual assistants
  • Software developers
  • Surgeons

Business Website

We demonstrate a website builder that is an alternative to WordPress. WordPress is a great website builder, but doesn't make it into our list of 3 as it doesn't have a support desk. This is a problem for do-it-yourself website builders as the lack of a support desk means there can be long, frustrating hours attempting to trouble-shoot issues. Take this course to discover a fully functional website platform that has a support desk. We look at websites for a:

  • Real estate agency
  • Travel agency
  • Donut shop
  • Make-up shop
  • Not-for-profit charity

This is a do-it-yourself website course for beginners

Because WordPress does not have a one-stop-shop support desk, it is not covered in this course. To be included in this course the website platform needs to have an unlimited free trial and a support desk.

YouTube's great - but...

  • You can waste hours and hours of time watching irrelevant videos
  • The sequence of learning can often be random
  • The delivery can be too fast

Learning in a structured step-by-step way gives you the best chance of success.
