We're here to introduce you to 5 Free Web Builders for tight-arses. Wondering WTF tight-arse has to do with a business that's not the fitness industry? Let us help you out. Tight-arse is Australian slang for a person who spends as little money as possible. Let's use it in a sentence for you: "There's no way the boss would pay for a website, he's a total tight-arse". Do you see what we mean now?
One of the most common knockbacks we get from our website quotes is because the boss or business owner is a tight-arse. They probably read somewhere it's not the fu*king hard to build a website and passes the job to their unsuspecting partner, admin person, or apprentice...[insert any position other than their own here] See the thing is, your boss's mate that built their own site and said it wasn't the fu*king hard, is also a tight-arse. They tend to stick together.
Are free web builders really free
If you read our previous blog (Are free websites really free), you know we really do not recommend free web builders for established Aussie businesses. But we are aware of the increasing number of tight arses in the business space and thought we would help them out. Or for those working for the tight-arse. A quick note to let you know we are not associated with any of these builders, except Google. We are a Google partner. That doesn't really mean a lot though.
Google Business Profile
Coming in at number 1 is Google Business Profile. Its not actually a web builder...but it is with the biggest search engine so it kinda makes sense you should have a profile with them. It is actually entirely free. It will help people find your business and you can upload images, logos and all the things. It's not the slickest of builders but as far as getting found online this is the bare-bone minimum you should be doing.
Not for a beginner. You need to do some serious YouTubing to get your WordPress, site to work. It is the powerhouse blogging engine that commandeered a staggering one-third of the Internet. Yes, you read that right. It's a force to be reckoned with. Now, here's the deal. You can go old school and install WordPress on your own servers, or you can save yourself the hassle and simply hop on over to WordPress.com (not WordPress.org) to get your blog, online magazine, or small business site up and running in a mere five minutes.
Mailchimp is more than just an EDM platform. You can build websites too! Its not hard either. Most is drag and drop now. With Mailchimp's free website and landing page tools, you can effortlessly create stunning sites that will impress your audience and bring your brand to life. And that's not all. Their built-in marketing and automation features will take your marketing strategy to the next level. Obviously, some of it's free and some of the extra features are not.
What can we say. It's the most loved and hated of all the free builders. Wix has actually come a long way. It has improved so many of its lacking features. So don't feel bad using it. What WIX is notorious for is being super basic and any add-ons or decent features will cost you more. So keep this in mind. Again a basic drag and drop builder. Nice responsive templates. Easy to edit.
