Five WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Website Builders

If you’re experiencing site builder overload, here are five recommended site builders on the web. Whatever it is that you’re looking into developing from a digital portfolio, blog or even an official website, all of these WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) systems are capable of doing them all. It just takes time in becoming familiar with the system and not being afraid to face the challenges while making your picture perfect website.

What’s the best one for you?

The range of site builders out there can definitely be overwhelming from free to a variety of prices.  Well, by surprise as much as free can be intriguing it may not be for everyone.  A free WYSIWYG system may not have the tools and widgets that a priced site builder has and vice versa. I recommend testing each system before committing to one. Keep note that all of these site builders have a drag-and-drop technology and you don’t need any coding. In no particular order:

# 1.  Weebly

# 2. Easy WebContent

Easy WebContent has a number of options for their web audience. Their site builder targets individuals wanting to create a professional website/blog with full customization. They have an HTML editor which is a tool for users who have an existing website looking to make minor edits and updates. Or if you’re just looking for add-ons for your website/blog, Easy WebContent offer fully customized add-ons.

# 3. Yola

Yola is known for their free basic site plan, which is advantageous for any startup and small business who have a small marketing budget. Yola’s system is like any other site builder with the drag and drop feature, however what separates them apart from others is their customer support. From a users perspective this is extremely important. You have the ability to have direct and prompt assistance from their customer support staff.

# 4. Squarespace

Squarespace has been compared to WordPress, which shows how competitive of a platform it is for blogging. Even with a strong position in the blogging industry, their features make any website look extremely attractive. For anyone who is  always on the go, they have an application where you can completely customize and manage your website on an iPad and iPhone.

Basekit stands out not only to a user who has never built a website, but also to experienced designers with users ability to upload their own Photoshop designs.
