SmugMug Review (A Rollercoaster of a Ride!)

I’m so glad you could join me today…

You see, I’ve been reviewing general website builders for quite some time now but SmugMug is my first specialist photography platform and I’m kinda excited!

I’ve heard many good things about them along the way and after hearing the recent news of them acquiring photo storage site Flickr, I couldn’t put it off any longer.

An example website I created using SmugMug. The site is called "Photography In The Rain" and consists of people, landmarks, and nature shots all taken in the rain

With that said, I’m itching to get started so let’s jump straight in.

WebStarts Review (The Best Start For Your Website?)

I doubt that WebStarts was the first company to pop up when you began your search for a website builder online.

But that doesn’t mean they don’t offer a simple and intuitive way for even a complete novice to build a website for their business.

Because they definitely do as you’ll discover for yourself right here in this review.

Bandzoogle Review (Musicians, Look No Further)

If you’ve arrived at this review, you’re probably already aware that Bandzoogle is dedicated purely to helping bands and musicians create a presence online.

In my experience, these “niche” specific website builders are quite often thin, flimsy products and the company behind them doesn’t really understand the needs of the audience they’re targeting.

I’m pleased to say, Bandzoogle is the polar opposite of such platforms.

Started by musician Chris Vinson way back in 2003 when do-it-yourself builders were still in their infancy, Bandzoogle has now grown into a one-stop shop that helps you create a digital stage for your music and connect with your fans.

I have to admit, I’m not a musician myself but I’m very impressed with what Bandzoogle has to offer and I’ll be walking you through those things today.

WordPress Review (Pros & Cons For Your Business or Project)

This is a tough one for me.

man using wordpress on a laptopYou see, I learned how to use WordPress some years back and I’m soooo glad I did!

Today, WordPress accounts for around 28% of all websites online which quite frankly, blows my mind.

Having said that, it definitely comes with its own set of pros and cons and that means it’s not right for everyone.

But hey, forget about everyone else, the point of the review is to help you decide whether it’s right for your business or project.

If at the end of this article you decide it is, I’ll point you to one of the best free guides on the internet to help you get started.

If not, I’ll offer up an alternative that might suit you better. Sound good?

Duda Review (Fantastic But Not For Everyone)

I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been putting off this Duda review for almost two weeks now.

You see, when I first tested it, I had trouble wrapping my head around exactly who Duda would suit best.

Now I’ve come back to it with a fresh pair of eyes, I’m really glad I did!
