Would you choose to start your collection with Lego or Meccano - and what's this got to do with building your website?

Choosing the platform to build your website in is a decision that's going to stick with you for many years - best to choose the right one for you from the start. Wix and WordPress are two of the most popular website platforms for do-it-yourself website developers. This seminar will cover the pros and cons of self-hosted sites vs all-in one hosted platforms. Although Wix will be the focus of the seminar, if you're considering Weebly or SquareSpace you'll be able to follow along and gain useful information.

This FREE seminar, in a fun and practical way, will cover:

  • Beginner’s guide to hosting a site - what you need to know
  • Open Source nature of WordPress, its complexities and its flexibility
  • The commercial nature of Wix, its simplicity and its constraints.

Outcomes of seminar:

  • Understand which platform is the right one for you
  • Make an informed choice for your hosting service
  • Understand if you are likely to succeed as a do-it-yourself website owner/developer
  • Tips 'n Tricks that are good to know
  • Be inspired to get started with your website
  • Better understand and discuss website creation with a developer if you choose to hire someone to do it for you
  • You do not need to bring your laptops, but a notebook might be useful.
