How To Create a Website Infographic

You don’t have to know coding to create a website. With plenty of website builders and CMS platforms around that are beginner-friendly like SquarespaceWordPress, Shopify, and Weebly, everyone can build a slick-looking website at little or no cost.
There are plenty of guides to creating a website. But, I felt that there was something missing – a complete guide that starts at the very beginning, from understanding how website works to picking the best website platform, and finally useful links and resources (after the infographic) to make a site. This guide is for individuals and small business owners with little to no coding experience, not for those who have a dedicated development team or big budget to develop a site from scratch. Let the fun begin!
Here are the links and resources for all website builders and platforms mentioned in the infographic:
