Creating a website for your local lodge can be a great way to inform your members of news, share photos, invite members (and non-members) to organizing or fundraising events, and engage the local community.
While you can spend money to have a web developer create a site, there are many resources available to help you build a website for free or minimal cost. We will detail some of the ways to build a simple website as well as list a few alternatives that might cost some money but have been tailored for Unions and can meet more complex needs.
Here are a few resources that you can use to build a website for free.
- WordPress (wordpress.com) - One of the leading blogging platforms, WordPress is also known for making simple websites.
- Wix (www.wix.com)
- Weebly (www.weebly.com)
- Blogger (www.blogger.com)
- Tumblr (www.tumblr.com)
While we don't endorse any particular web developer, we do want to make you aware of several companies that make 100% union-made websites.
