When I was starting out both online and offline,I didn’t know how to create my own website or a blog. Below I have collected some of my favourite tools and resources for creating a website and building an audience for any business you’re willing to build.
Do note, this are not just the only best options available; but a sample of what I found worked for me also dependent on my industry: Social enterprise. I invite you to help me and other entrepreneurs add to this list of awesomeness and assist some more people.
