“Moscow was not built in one day” – one important principle we have to keep in mind when it comes down to blog traffic generation as well as traffic conversion (being from Russia, that’s what I usually say:).
We all keep talking about the importance of branding yourself and NOT your company or product.
One very intricate (and imperative!) part of the branding process is creating your own website traffic conversion as opposed to marketing your company’s replicated site.
Well, many of you told me “Easier said than done, Ana. I don’t have time or expertise to build my own website from scratch.”
Duly noted. My response – you don’t have to.
I’ve put together a list of the best (and free) website builders that can help you get your website running in no time.
If you find this list useful or would like to suggest more sites our readers will benefit from, I’d love for you to leave a comment at the bottom of the post and retweet please.
