If you are using GoDaddy to hold your domain names, you can still use other website builders that we highlighted above in the chart. All of them will have detailed guides on how to connect your domain name to the website you build. So I think the key is to focus on which website builder best suit your specific needs.
Squarespace doesn’t have a “free” plan, they only offer a 14 day trial period and you can decide if you want to upgrade or not. With builders such as Wix and Weebly, they do offer free plans but you won’t get access to all their features.
The cheapest option will be Weebly. You can connect your ecommerce store to Stripe with any one of their paid plans and the cheapest premium plan is the Starter plan for $8 per month (under their annual plan).
Landing pages are usually the introduction you have with potential customers and leads. They find your ad appealing or you have a great post on Facebook that’s going around, and this is what they see. You’ve piqued their interest and now they’re looking to see just what it is you’re all about. It’s your moment to shine. If you’ve invested in landing page builder that works best for you, you’ve probably customized everything. Everything should be set and ready for them.
Let me explain my situation. I am 86 years old, living in a large retirement community, and a member of a 100+ members writer’s club. Probably 25 or more of our members have published books, some of which are sold through Amazon, local book stores, etc. Our club wants a website where we can list names of our authors and a link to a page where there is an author bio. and description of the author’s book(s). We would also like to have an entry point directly to the books without going through the author’s list. Other desirable features would be Calendar of coming events, Newsletters, guest short stories and club president’s monthly editorial. We would like the first page of our website to be an attention grabber. I am thinking in terms of a slide show of pertinent pictures – with our ability to change the pictures (maybe 10) periodically. Money is a consideration, of course.
I would recommend taking a look at our discussions about them (the links to the discussions are included in the chart above) and visiting their actual websites to get a sense of who they are. Then signing up to trial / free accounts and invest a bit of time to test which website builder you are most comfortable with.

Now, let’s discuss the pricing and promotions that go along with this product. As mentioned earlier, this is not a cheap product. However, it is much less expensive than having to hire a tech person to design a sales funnel and web page for you.
Thank you so much for this review. I was under the click funnels illusion, and after reading other experiences, and your objective comments, I think Lead pages will be m best choice. Plus the 97.00 a month aka 1200.00 a year is way out of my budget, since, I’m just starting and really want lead capture and landing pages more than anything. Don’t have a product to sell either. Thank you once again for the fantastic review on these important products!
I’d suggest you check out Squarespace or Weebly. Both offer you responsive designs so websites built with these platforms are automatically mobile friendly. Wix is also mobile friendly, but they’re not responsive as you get a separate, dedicated mobile editor for Wix websites. So I think you might want to check them out as well.
With over 450 different mobile-friendly templates in over 20 different industries, Webs collection of templates is sure to have the look you need for your site. Most of the themes are offered free of charge, while others required paid subscription membership to access.
I’m a web optimization & conversion consultant – I help my clients (some in the Fortune 500) generate more revenue for their business. Mostly, I get more of their visitors to convert on their website. I’ve launched and sold 2 startups – I’ve been working online for 15 years and have started from scratch – and then sold – two fast-growing websites: a leading gaming information portal and an online advertising network. Read 10 things about me – including being a body language coach to a World Champion of Poker and singing in a KISS cover band (pics included) – here.
Mobile Friendliness – Weebly has a one-click optimization button, which takes your current webpage and optimizes it for mobile devices. Weebly also has a mobile website builder that allows you to build a website specifically for mobile devices using a separate mobile builder.
Have you considered signing up to a free account with Wix and testing them out? This way, if you like it better than GoDaddy, perhaps just start using Wix right away so you don’t have to worry about migrating a website from GoDaddy to Wix.
I’m trying to figure out how to get my consulting business started. In regards to getting a website setup, who do I go through first? Should I get the domain through GoDaddy or someone similar and then edit website through Weebly for example? What steps should someone take? Is there a good all-in-one stop shop for this?
To start out, it’s an easy to use page designer, like we know from other systems like LeadPages. Just like LeadPages, they offer a long list of templates and let you change any content you like, however, confined to the fields that the template provides you with.
The essential service in the ClickFunnels package is aptly named… ClickFunnels. On the face of it, you may confuse it with another landing page editor, but its capabilities extend far beyond. Once you get the software going, you will be faced with a myriad of design options for your landing pages.
The goal here is to make some extra money, and with ClickFunnels, you can grab a link to the funnel you just made and share it. When someone visits this URL, they can add this funnel directly to their account if they are already a member of the platform.
On most websites, the desktop versions look quite similar to its mobile view which works pretty well in most cases. Wix’s mobile editor, however, lets you design the mobile version of your website separately from its desktop version.
This is exactly what I was looking for. You’re answering so many questions which I can imagine is a pain, but totally appreciated by all of us. My wife and I are looking around and wonder if you could recommend a site for a custom cakery (picures, blog capability ect.) but mostly we’d like to setup a site that would have a questionnaire to be submitted to our email so that we can review the customers wishes and date requested before we respond.
Shopify. You can get a 14-day free trial of Shopify, the perfect website builder for creating an online store. Shopify is also great for your business if you need to sell on the go – at markets, trade shows, pop-up shops, or any event. There is no training required for how to use their system. If you have an actual retail store, you can simply add on their retail option to help manage it.
I had heard of most of the other website builders I reviewed before, but SiteBuilder was a new one for me. That lack of name-recognition along with their lower price point had me expecting a poor performance, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a full-featured website builder with a decent template selection. If you just want to get some sort of website up and aren’t too picky on design then this may be the website builder for you.
Primitive website builder services were available as early as in 1990s. Unlike the swanky auto-pilot styled website builders of this day, the first website building services were based on manual HTML coding. Gradually the workload was reduced with the help of pre-coded blocks and modules. Dreamweaver emerged as the leader of visually empowering online website builders as early as 1998. Dreamweaver was one of the very first builders to use a WYSIWYG editor philosophy. But with the emergence of W3C standards Dreamweaver and similar contemporary website builders were scorned upon for not being compliant. As a result of the demand of W3C compliance Amaya, the first open source tool was created. This was initially crafted to be a CSS/HTML authoring system.
Pricing Monthly fee, starting from $97 per month for up to 20,000 contacts. Free 14 day trial available. Monthly fee, starting from $199 per month for up to 2,500 contacts. Full-featured edition available from $379 per month.
I have leadpages/aweber/wix account. I’m selling a digital product and am brand new at this. The limited leadpages editing has bothered me a bit as none of the pages have all the features I’d want in one page. Wix and leadpages don’t work well together
Now we will want to grab your digital asset’s URL. This URL will take the user to the file where they can download it to their device or view it online (with the exception of .zip files which cannot be previewed).
To ensure that you have the best, most up to date information on editing your domains and integrating them into clickfunnels, click here. I will not be going into further detail on domain editing in this article as the process changes frequently and I am a bit of an outlier since I predominately use the WordPress plug-in
You can have Go Daddy forward pretty much any email address with a domain name you purchase there to another email address. That way you don’t have to actually purchase the email addresses until you’re ready. Worked really well for us. We have three email addresses for one domain name that are forwarded to a Go Daddy email address at an entirely different domain we own. Hope that helps.
It is not the cheapest product in the world ($97 basic level, $297 for all the bells and whistles), but it can save you the cost of several other products that you will no longer need, which may actually make it the cheaper option.
