I have used GoDaddy since I created my first site over 15 years ago. I can’t believe I’ve been working on the internet for that long. I buy and park my domains there and use it for email, hosting, etc. That says something.
Here’s where I was first playing with the site. It was super easy to play around with. This is my right out of the gate work.
Then I switched it up to this. I decided I wanted to brand myself. This way I can use it as a blog, an e-commerce or a website. It’s my choice the direction I take my site in.
I love how it turned out above. This is my go to site for right now. It was so easy to add buttons, insert forms to collect data (hello email list) , add your social media and more. It was as easy as filling in a blank! There was no need to learn html or code! Nice!
It even makes it simple to do your SEO (search engine optimization)for your site. Google ads were just as easy to do too.
Did I mention that you can create an ecommerce store, a blog, a website or whatever your heart desires. Have you been wanting to sell vintage clothing? Do you create great crafts that others yearn for? What’s stopping you? You can create it on a desktop pc or on a mobile device. I didn’t even know that was possible. How cool is that? You can set it up from your phone if that’s what you desire!
I started it one day and played around with it for about 20 minutes. Then the next day I got back on and worked on it about 25 minutes more. Then it was easy to upload my logo, change the theme and my site looks so professional. The uses for this website builder are unlimited. You can post your resume on here and send people to your portfolio. You can create a recipe site or build a store to sell handmade items. When you do this you can be up and running in under an hour. You have great access to support, hosting and even professional email with you site name! So what’s stopping you from building your blog or your site now? Get started and let me see your results! Have you used Go Central Website Builder? What did you think?
This is a finished product of what one of my pages looks like on my blog! I love it! What do you think?
