Demystifying Website Creation for Microschools: Tips and Recommendations
Starting a business, especially a microschool, can be a daunting task, and one of the first things that comes to mind is creating a website. Even for a well-versed millennial like myself, the idea can be overwhelming. However, I want to remind you that creating a website is doable, as I’ve learned through my personal journey of expanding and opening K2 Academy. To help you choose the right platform for hosting your microschool’s website, I’d like to share some tips, starting with the easiest and ending with my current choice.
Firstly, I started with Canva, which I chose because I was already paying for their pro version, giving me access to the beta website builder. The beta version of Canva’s website builder is like a modernized powerpoint, with many website templates to choose from. You can easily edit pages and connect your personal domain to the platform, but note that this version of a website is a one-page format. This means that each time someone clicks on one of the page buttons, it will make the screen slide down to that portion of the page rather than opening another page associated with that topic.
If you want something a little fancier but not too much work, Squarespace is a great middle ground. During the free trial period, you can test out many of the features before deciding to pay. They ask many questions about your business and overall vibe to assist them in creating a personalized template for you to begin and build off of. However, there are some slight limitations depending on the type of features and website you are building.
Lastly, Wix is the website builder for those who desire ultimate control over all customizable options on their website, from button color to type, vibe, and movement. It can be simple and easy to use similar to Squarespace or super complex, as if you are a coder yourself. It really depends on what you want and need for your website.
In conclusion, if you’re already a Canva pro customer and want to start something right away on a platform you’re familiar with, I recommend them. Squarespace is great for beginners who want something functional, sleek, and easy to use, while Wix is for those who want complete control over their website’s customization. I hope these tips help you choose the right platform for your microschool’s website, and wish you the best of luck in your website building journey.
