Show Notes: What Platform Should I Use To Market My Website?
Question 1(1:00): If I have a new business and I want to get a website rebuilt that I already have, and I have another website that I’m trying to build what are my best options for both?
A lot of business owners have gone the D.I.Y. route in terms of building their website, however there is a healthy combination of owners who decided to hire someone. It really just depends on the purpose of the website.
There are four Sonja likes to use:
WIX (2:40): FREE
Pros: Very well laid out, Nice creative site, Inexpensive, Great starting place, Easy to drag & drop
Cons: Only works well with Embedding, Not as many plug ins, not as SEO friendly
Question 2: (5:05) If I already have a website and I’m trying to get it rebuilt , could I do WIX if I still wanted to?
2. Wordpress (5:40): FREE
Pros: SEO Friendly, Lots of plug-ins
Cons: Too many plugins can cause crash
Wordpress.com: Blogs, Great for just writing, Starter, Easy for DIY, No need to invest too much time. Less likely to be hacked, because it is being protected by Wordpress
Wordpress.org: Self hosted (Needs a host builder such as godaddy.com, hostbuilder.com ). Although not intentionally, it can be hacked. $10
