I don’t normally do this – but this is easiest way to make a website I’ve ever seen in my life.

I don’t normally do shameless plugs, but I’ve found this website-maker called Weebly and I’m in love with it. I actually build websites part time for a living, so I know about these things. But the sites I work on are big complicated beasts that require bespoke development – so I’m not competing with Weebly, that’s why I can recommend it
Making a website is as easy as re-arranging furniture
Weebly is basically a drag and drop website builder that anyone can use – no pesky html or special knowledge required. I’ve already built 4 websites using Weebly and I’m proud to say they’re all thriving (I’m afraid I can’t give links because of our attempts at being anonymous here at SNFY). It makes building a website kind of like re-arranging furniture. Drag a drop stuff around until it looks GEE-OR-GEOUS.
Snazzy pro-looking designs with all the trimmings
Seriously, it is flippin’ the shiz-nizzle. You can choose from a bunch of pro-designs to get started. Then you can add text and pics (which seems pretty obvious), but you can also add a blog, videos, an online shop, music players, pictures galleries that look snazzy, contact forms and other stuff like that.
They’ll set you up with your own domain name, too and you can have matching email addresses if you like.
What kind of websites will it work for?
Well, so far I’VE built two business websites, one craft website/blog, and one blog for one of bands that I’m in. Apologies for the shameless plug – but I couldn’t resist because I love it so much. If there’s anyone out there that’s:
- Starting a business
- Organising an event
- Getting married
- Promoting something
- Or just generally feeling webby – then you’ve GOT to check Weebly out. And you can thank me later
It’s free forever – you only have to pay if you ‘go pro’ for extra features, or if you want a domain name. You can have ‘yourwebsitename.weebly.com’ for free forever if you don’t need a domain name. I won’t lie, I do have an affiliate system set up, but I wouldn’t dream of recommending it if I didn’t absolutely love using it. Take it from a web-developer… Weebly is the bee’s pyjamas. :D
