3 Free Tools to Build A Website With No Technical Skills

By Daniel Scocco

A couple of years ago I run a survey to know more about my readers, and I was surprised to find that around 15% of them didn’t have a blog or website yet. They said they wanted to build one, but didn’t have any technical skills, so they were afraid to get web hosting, install WordPress and so on.

If you are in this situation, or if you know someone who is (e.g., a parent or a friend), there are tools one can use to build a website today that require no technical skill whatsoever. Below you’ll find 3 of them.

1. IM Creator

If you are looking for a complete website, with several pages and what not, then you can try IM Creator. It features a Drag & Drop editor you can use to build the elements of your web pages, and it also comes with templates ready to be used and customized. The basic plan is free, and you can use your own domain name, so visitors won’t even know what tool you used to create the website.

2. About.me

If you just need a website to showcase yourself (i.e., as a consultant or professional in some area), then About.me can do the trick. It allows you to create a simple page with your background information, links to your social media accounts, and email address where people can contact you. You can customize the colors, the background image and so on.

3. Wix

Wix is another option is are looking to build a full-fledged website. It’s similar to IM Creator, in the sense that it offers you a visual editor where you can move and customize things around, until the web pages look like what you want. The basic version is free and there are premium plans if you are looking for more advanced features.

    Just curious, would you say that there is a significant difference in traffic between a website hosted on Wix or About.me in comparison to a self-hosted website?

    @Sune,

    Those platforms offer white label versions, meaning that your website will look the same as a self-hosted one, so in theory there wouldn’t be much difference.

    Hi Daniel,

    Helpful information here. There are more than a few ways to build a site and for folks with few or no tech skills – like myself – these websites are a big time blessing. Always good to know that there are options out there for us.

    Happy to tweet this. Thanks Daniel. Signing off from Bali 😉

    I love About.me.
    It’s like an online business/personal card.
    Thanks for sharing also the other alternatives.

    What about Squarespace? It’s also useful–although it is a bit more expensive.

    Or just use a nice theme, plenty of them available.

    Wix is one of the best among these. And it is quite easy to build a website for a newbie in wix. The information you provided is very useful for those who doesn’t have a website or blog.

    Quick question about WIX… if you have your own domain, do you use WIX the same as you do WP, by using it along with a host like bluehost? If I’ve been playing with WP and bluehost trying to build my own site, and I wanted to try out WIX instead to see if it was easier for me or a preferred option… how would I go about doing that?
