freelance website

Are you a freelancer? One who likes to take on tasks personally? You can do that with your web presence, too, whether you’re a translator, a designer, a consultant, or a photographer. Not having a business website means missing out on customers – the business website is the best channel of distribution there is.

In most cases, you already have the skills necessary to build a website on your own – all you need is the right tool. Let’s take a look at what your website project might look like:

Possible list of requirements

  • Operation as simple as possible
  • Small website (between five and twenty mostly static pages)
  • Blog function
  • Smartphone-friendly website version
  • Domain and e-mail account included
  • Customizable design
  • Contact form, perhaps directions how to get there
  • Social media integration (e.g. Twitter / Flickr integration)
  • Support
  • Price range: $5 to 8/month

What you don’t need

  • Member page with login functionalities and customizable degrees of access for different kinds of customers
  • Maintenance of several hundred individual pages

There are two tools ideally suited for freelancers: Weebly and Jimdo.



Weebly offers modern designs and the site editor is very flexible. Even their free plan is very powerful and only features a small ad. You can find our in-depth Weebly review here.
