If you are looking for a site where you can build a website for free you wont have to look too far to find one - there are heaps of them online. You'll see plenty of sites like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and Wordpress that all advertise themselves as free website builders. The truth is, for one reason or another, most of those sites aren't actually free unless you are happy with a rather bland and fairly unresponsive website. If you want anything above the bare minimum, you'll end up either having to pay for it in the form of a monthly fee or your site will be festooned with ads to help to pay it's way. You know what they say...there's no such thing as a free lunch. However, there is a new website builder on the market that offers a different take on free website building. SiteKit differs because, on top of your basic free CMS, you get access to all the app's vast array of features and you'll only pay for the ones that you choose to use when you actually launch your site.
 
SiteKit is not the first new website builder that was designed especially for small business but, unlike many of its competitors, it's the first one that offers businesses an unlimited amount of features for their site without having to fork out a monthly fee for them. The app was built on the concept that small business should only pay for the things that they decide are valuable to them. Consequently, they have provided an integrated App Store-like marketplace called the Moboom Market - filled with free and premium, professionally designed templates, stock photos, integrations and services - from which you can choose your content. Everything in the market is free to try for as long as you want—even the premium items - and they look great on all devices. All the fonts and colors of any of the templates can be customized to your exact needs and you can upload as many photos, videos and other files as you like. When images have been uploaded they can be resized, cropped and enhanced directly from within the site. Once you've launched, your visitors can easily share anything with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and other social networks and you can attract more visitors with an easy-to-use blog. Your site is fully hosted on Amazon's cloud platform for no monthly fee and you can even integrate Google Analytics into your website to keep track of your website traffic. SiteKit gives you unlimited bandwidth so your page load times will always be fast and you can add as many additional pages and as much content to your site as you want. You can even add your own unique URL - like yourbusiness.com - so your customers can easily find your site.
 
The developers believe that websites should have access to an unlimited amount of features and be truly free with no monthly fee in order to have a great site. The fact is, most of the sites that offer a free website builder aren’t really free. You'll end up paying a monthly fee for a custom domain, the removal of ads, extra storage, a decent bandwidth or for the number of pages that you want to use. SiteKit turns the website building concept on its head and lets you use all of the features for free until you are completely happy with them and ready to launch. The app is easy to use -even for the most inexperienced of users - but you can talk to the team of design experts via live chat or in the forum if you have any problems. While apps like Wix and Wordpress get all the attention, SiteKit seems like a much better alternative for small business to improve its online presence without having to pay a monthly fee.
