When creating a personal brand, it’s important to selectively curate your website’s content and design. There are a ton of different website builders out there, so it’s important to pick one that’s right for you. Here are a few suggestions to help get you started.
If you’ve listened to a podcast, you’ve probably heard a Squarespace ad. Squarespace is definitely the hippest of website builders. It has beautiful templates and is easy to use. However, it doesn’t have a free option, which eliminates its accessibility for some. Its cheapest option is $16/month, or $12/month if you subscribe for a year at a time.
Unlike Squarespace, Wix does have a free version. However, it comes with a pretty unsightly Wix logo. The version that will remove the Wix ads is still cheaper than Squarespace at $10/month. Wix also has a lot of beautiful templates to choose from, but unlike Squarespace, once you pick a template you can’t change it without rebuilding your entire site.
Weebly is like Wix in that it has a free version that requires a Weebly subdomain as well as displaying Weebly ads. They both use drag and drop templates, and while Wix’s templates are more attractive, Weebly allows you to change templates without needing to rebuild the site. Weebly is also the cheapest option at only $8/month billed annually.
