Regardless of what service you’re selling, having a good website is integral to ensuring the ongoing success of your business but for many professionals it can be hard to know where to start. Here, online entrepreneur Peter Zaborszky discusses the five best ways to build a website.

    Having recently moved out of brokering full time and into running a company that provides websites and content marketing services exclusively to mortgage professionals in Canada, it is good to people talking about establishing an online presence.

    I would say Wordpress is where it's at. Period. Hands Down. There are just so many options, you can make the site you want and keep it updated pretty easily.

    Wix and Weebly are okay for personal sites, but I don't believe they would do well as a professional website, although they are way better than they once were.

    Joomla IMHO is not as good as Wordpress so why not just use Wordpress?

    And I have no experience with Drupal. However Expression Engine is another robust option, but certainly not something a beginner would set up on their own.

    I remember purchasing my first Wordpress site and paying over $5000 to get a site that I wasn't completely happy with, but ran out of marketing spend. Times have certainly changed. I am now building fully responsive websites for under $1000. So I agree with
    Peter Zaborszky when he says website building is a lot more straightforward than it once was.

    Don't worry about how people find you online, you should be concerned with what they find when they find you!
