Making Websites As a New Manager

FIRST THING’S FIRST: What Builders and Domains Should I Use?

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using google sites as a branch manager, or as a district manager with a serious budget. It’s FREE, it’s simple, and you don’t need much more than that.

If you want to be fancy, you can use strikingly (what I use to make this website) or wordpress. I wouldn’t recommend using Wix. Wix is user friendly, but it is one of the most expensive site builders you could choose.

Strikingly is more user friendly, but has less features. WordPress has more features, but can be confusing to use.

For your domain (the link), use GoDaddy. It’s easy to use and very cheap, with great customer support. Just use the domain though. I wouldn’t recommend building your site through GoDaddy. There are much cheaper options.
