If you are like many non-technical business owners, the allure of a free website is tempting. You probably know about GoDaddy, WordPress, and you may have seen the ads for Wix. Others include web.com, yola.com, webflow.com. But are they really free and will you end up with something that is going to help or hurt your business?
Going with a free option usually promises a great looking site, easy to use templates, an online store, and often search-friendly results. But beware! Unless this is your expertise, chances are you will not be familiar with the terminology or the implications of SEO, keyword selection and placement, title tags, and more. Just like you wouldn’t operate on yourself, you shouldn’t put the life of your business on the line.
Today’s guests, Sheila Torgan and Bonnie Tyler of Cyber Sidewalks will pull back the curtain and share what you need to know to create or update your website. If you still choose to do it yourself, you will be better informed. If you decide you need professional help, you will have better questions to ask so that you hire the right company.
