If you are a returning visitor to our blog, you probably have a good idea of how important an online presence is in today’s digitally driven world. This post is going to show you just how easy it is to keep up with today’s technical society by building your own website using Weebly.com.
Based in San Francisco, CA, Weebly was founded in 2007 to help people create a unique website, blog or online store. Since its launch, Weebly has helped millions of people showcase their achievements, sell products for their business and communicate with online visitors around the world. The main purpose is to help people create a professional site without a need for technical experience. Weebly now has over 30 million registered users.

What To Do First
Signing up is free and easy. Just go to Weebly.com/signup and create a free account using your Google Plus, Facebook account or email address. Once you are logged in, you will be taken to a page where you can choose one of 40 themes categorized by featured, business, online store, personal, events, blog and portfolio. Each theme can include an online store or blog, and they can also be edited to your taste using Weebly’s drag and drop feature which allows you to place things right where you want them.
How It Works
You can then change the page layouts by choosing from over 40 layout designs from Weebly or by using the drag and drop function to create your own page layout from scratch. Transferring designs is easy because Weebly uses similar layouts with “zones”, you can change your layout without changing the position of your content as frequently as you’d like as long as your content is in the designated zones. You can also have as many pages as you’d like.
For the advanced users, Weebly also gives you the OPTION to access and edit code: HTML and CSS. This gives the user more flexibility with technical design, and you can also import code into a separate hosting service.
Weebly offers technical support, email updates and a user friendly mobile editor that will show you how you can make your website mobile friendly. Prices are listed below with a minimum purchase of a 6 month subscription.
