Anything else I need to know before launching my website?

Most of these website builders are extremely easy to use, that’s why I’ve chose them in the first place! So your site should be up and running in a couple of hours after you sign up for any of the solutions above. However, as it’s the case with brick and mortar shops, the challenging part is to get the word out about your store, get people inside and convince them to separate from their time or money in order to get what you’re promoting 🙂

How do you rank these site builders?

I thought you’d never ask! It’s a pretty straightforward process really: I carefully review (and revisit every few months) each website builder and grade its features on a scale from 1 to 10. The chart above is automatically updated with the latest grades for each platform and ranks them accordingly.
