This week the Botanic Gardens Education Network (bgen) celebrated its 25th anniversary. Presentations, a picnic and a tour of Kew Gardens were much enjoyed. To coincide with this happy event we launched the redesigned bgen website, which is a custom WordPress site with features for members-only content.
Moonfruit offers site-building software that is based on a visual approach to designing your site. Being a very visual thinker, I like it because of this.
It has some disadvantages – it uses Flash which can be a bit slow to load and not all browsers have a Flash player built in – but when it comes to an easy way to make a simple, colourful website, its fab. It is sometimes claimed that Flash sites are not good for Google searches but I have found in fact that the sites I’ve built get picked up very well.
I use it a lot. Here is an example: http://www.greeneruponthames.org.
There is a free version and its very cheap and easy to manage larger sites or more of them. You can buy your domain names in there as well, and this is also easier to understand than the usual domain name registration and hosting websites. basically you can get your site built and run very easily.
If you still find it a hassle I can build and manage your site as I do for clients such as such as actress Angeles Sorribas.
Get in touch if you’d like to know more.
