Okay, so we all know by now that if we want to do pretty much anything - we will need a website. It's the ultimate bit of social proof, because if someone has a website they are totally legit. Insert eye roll here.

But the point is, people want to see that a business or person they are dealing with professionally has some sort of online presence. And creating your own website is the ultimate way of controlling how you show up online.

Websites used to be expensive to build and complicated to create. But that has all changed.

Companies like Weebly, Wix, and Squarespace have filled that corner of the market with free, easy to use (see darg and drop) websites that have beautiful design.

I myself made the plunge to Weebly from Wordpress (see www.soulspeakamarketing.com) because I was tired of updating and finagling with my Wordpress theme and plugins.

Now all the tools available can be overwhelming. How do you choose the right one for you? What features do you need? How much should you pay if you decided to upgrade? Should you buy your own domain?

I totally hear you. That's why I created the DIY Website Guide to shine a light on the best tools to build your website, their pros and cons and what features you will want to look for when you sign up for one.
