Should You Build Your Own Website?
If you have seen the ads for Wix, Shopify, GoDaddy or Square Online you probably think anyone (especially you) can create a website. If I had a nickel for every time someone said to me “It’s WordPress, how hard can it be”. So, in an effort to answer that statement, I have created a little video of some WordPress features using the Divi theme. In my experience, Divi is the most powerful and easiest of the platforms to use. (No, I am not getting paid to say that.)
This doesn’t address the importance of:
- understanding SEO,
- headings, typography,
- the occasional CSS, html or php,
- image optimization,
- plug-in integrations or responsiveness,
- design elements,
- cookies compliance,
- or SSL.
Also, just because a site looks pretty, doesn’t mean it is optimally functional.
