Having a professional-looking website is one of the most essential considerations for a small business. Did you know that 65% of consumers conduct online research before stepping foot in a store? This makes it all the more important for businesses to have a nice and engaging website that can convert an interested buyer into an actual customer.
Fortunately, there are a lot of easy to use website builders that you can use with no technical experience required.
In the infographic above, we share the five of the most beginner-friendly website builders: WordPress, Shopify, Squarespace, Wix, and Weebly. We consider these five website builders to offer the most value in terms of pricing, ease of use, website speed, and popularity among small businesses.
In terms of cost efficiency, WordPress provides the best value as it is technically free and users only need to pay around $3-$10 per month to host their website If users want a customer domain, there will also be an additional charge of around $10 per year.
On the higher end, Shopify can cost about $29 per month depending on the ready-made features included in the package. Shopify offers users an all-in-one package to create a professional-looking and fully-functioning website for their online store which is why it is more expensive compared to other providers offering more basic website features.
In terms of popularity, WordPress takes the lead with 30% of the entire internet population using it as their website platform. This is because of the level of customizability it offers to users, and the fact that it’s free to use. While there are a lot of available templates that users can choose from, WordPress also provides a lot of flexibility if users want complete control of how their site will look.
Though WordPress is the most widely used, Squarespace has the highest ratings according to Fit Small Business readers. Our users like the sleek and sophisticated templates provided to users with zero coding experience.
In terms of website speed, Weebly leads the pack at 1.6 seconds loading time. WordPress comes at a close second at 1.7 seconds — when powered by Bluehost. Wix takes the last spot with a slower loading time at 5.2 seconds.
