Ah, the age old question, "which web builder is right for me?" The portfolio building process can be a tedious one so it's important to think about which web builder best fits your needs. Take this short, ten question quiz to determine whether you should be Team Wix or Team Weebly!
Both Wix and Weebly have easy to use, drag and drop interfaces with some variation. Would you prefer:
Are you the type who might want to change your template in the future?
Are you interested in including more advanced design features that set your portfolio apart?
Would you feel comfortable diving into your site's code to exercise creative control?
How would you describe your ideal portfolio site?
What are you looking for in terms of themes and templates?
How much time do you have to work on your site?
Your ideal web building experience would be:
How important is showcasing your personal brand to you?
How confident are you in the web building process?
Weebly is the place for you to start! It offers templates that work well for written and visual work. The intuitive drag-and-drop interface makes customizing your pages a breeze! (But if you're not happy with the options, you can brave the HTML/CSS customization option.) Weebly makes web building easy to learn which makes it less intimidating to jump in and get started. There are plenty of modern, professional-looking themes and a mobile editor. If you're feeling nervous about making a website or don't have much time to work on your project, Weebly is the builder for you!
Wix’s emphasis on visual content and animated transitions is perfect for you! Careful not to get lost in this builder’s enormous template selection. They're sorted based on individual needs, but once you've made a decision there are plenty of options that allow you to alter the design: you can edit each element on a page to make it look exactly how you want it and even guide how you want the viewer to navigate through the content on each of your pages. But if you have commitment issues, be warned: once you get started, you can’t change your template!
