If you have a business, large or small, you will need a website. Whether you plan to use it for sales, to increase engagement, or for employees, it is vitally important that it’s visually attractive, easily accessible, and user-friendly. But when you are running a business, there are so many other aspects to consider that you may not think you have the time to create a high-quality site. In reality, there are plenty of options out there to help you create a website easily and quickly without compromising on quality. Here are our top 3 quick ways to make a website.
- Use a site builder
With site builders, you can get to creating your online space with their simple interfaces and publish this to the web straight away, without the need to transfer a website to a hosting server separately. This is what makes this option particularly attractive to many website creators, as it is super quick to drag and drop the features you want into position. There are many options out there, including free and paid ones, so do your research into which has the best pros for you and weigh these against the cons. A drawback of website builders is that you may be limited to certain plug-in limits and design templates.
- Use a web hosting service
If you are willing to put a little bit of extra time into designing the website yourself but want to save time on the more technical side of things with a simple server, a web hosting service could be the perfect option. This will mean you don’t have to create your own domain and things like storage, site migration and backups are organised for you. Again, there are plenty of services available, so researching which offers what you need is a worthwhile investment of your time. This option can tend be more costly, however.
- Use a Google Drive Builder
Let’s say you have all of your company’s files, including forms, newsletters, spreadsheets, contracts, presentations, videos and photos, all organised in your Google Drive but you want it in an easy to navigate website instead. It can be difficult to transfer all of this over (whether online or intranet), not to mention time-consuming. To skip this step, you could look into a Google Drive website.
These tools allow you to log in with your Google account and connect your Google Drive to their system, meaning a website is created automatically using the existing folders. This is a brilliant option to truly save time on designing a site as well as worrying about how it will be hosted, as tabs and pages are automatically made based on your Drive. You can then customise it at ease as much or as little as you want using existing templates and easy to grasp tools that don’t require a high level of tech-savvy.
There are many quick and easy ways to create websites to suit your business, budget and time. Make sure to evaluate what options are available and make the best decision that will benefit your company.
