So, you are an aspiring blogger or online store owner and are eager to make your first steps into the immense worldwide web. There are thousands of options today to create your website from scratch with minimum to no investment and very little resources. How to choose the right one?
In today’s world, you no longer need to be a coding pro to create your blog, online store or free website. There are many tools available out there that do the hard work for you. And this is where the first difficult question comes up – which one to choose? There are several factors you should consider before you make your choice:
Simple, easy-to-use and straightforward
Nobody wants to get all messed up with complicated editing and programming – you want to see your website go live as soon as possible! With Microweber this is easier than ever. With the latest Microweber 1.0.10 users can Drag & Drop layouts. Check out the to see how it works.
The Drag and Drop feature is part of the Live Edit functionality, which also features an original, tailor-made real-time text writing and editing function (WYSIWYG editor). It serves as an alternative to the Admin panel while managing content and lets the user work on the site interface itself. Does it get any more straightforward than that?
Flexible Content Management
Content is king – and these are not empty words. The content you publish (whether it’s a blog, online store or website) will largely define your identity and success. Therefore, you should be able to easily play around with it and modify all different types of it – be it text, images, videos, etc. And this is where Microweber’ unique Live Edit feature comes to help – type text, drag and drop images and videos and move them around your display with a touch of the mouse to achieve the best design possible!
Endless customization options
So, you are halfway through the process of building your own space online. But somewhere around that time, you suddenly decide to change your design – you find something better in Microweber’s marketplace, offering a rich selection of website templates, themes, and modules. Don’t worry – you can customize your website anytime (just drag and drop the new layout that you’ve picked), and your content will not be affected in any way. Information remains untouched, helping you achieve a smooth migration to your website’s new look.
If you choose to start with the default theme of Microweber called Dream you will enjoy more than 75+ professional layouts. But don’t worry if you like some other template in the marketplace – you can use is in the same way as in the default theme – choose from free and premium.
Integrated online store
Unlike many of its peer CMSs and website building tools, all Microweber templates come with a built-in online store functionality. This is particularly useful, if you are building an e-shop, but even if you are a blogger, having this option in your arsenal of tools can be pretty useful – why not expand your horizons and start partnering with brands or products that you write about? (for example, we had a blogger who wrote about beard grooming techniques and he got an offer from a trimmer production company to sell their products. He is now making some good dollars out – how cool is that?!) This can be a very lucrative and pleasant way of making some money and turning your hobby into a full-time living!
There is no need to say how much SEO matters – search engine optimization is at the heart of every successful online endeavor. According to estimates, three out of four clicks from internet searches go to the top five positions on Google. So you should stay on top – and Microweber is here to help.
