Zoho Forms

Zoho Forms is a neat form builder that packs in some solid features without sacrificing on ease of use. Its free plan gives you access to most of its core features and even lets you accept payments.

SmugMug

SmugMug claims to be an all-in-one solution for photographers looking to set up an online portfolio and sell their work. For the most part, it does exactly that. Although customization is a bit limited, SmugMug’s monetization options are simple and useful.

Zenfolio

Zenfolio offers a great all-in-one solution for photographers, with clever tools to help you display your photos, get booked for sessions, sell products, and receive payments. However, it's not the most flexible website builder, and if you have a large image bank, you'll probably require more storage space.

Volusion Pricing [2022] – Is It Actually Good Value for Money?

At first glance, Volusion’s pricing structure gives the impression of being a “middle of the road” e-commerce platform - neither the cheapest, nor the most expensive. This is intentional: Volusion recently went through a major pricing overhaul, ditching its six-tiered system in favor of a much simpler structure, with zero transaction fees and unlimited bandwidth included in...

How to Start an Online Boutique: Step-by-Step Guide [2022]

When I built my first boutique website, I’ll admit, it took me forever. I was so overwhelmed by all the different steps and important choices, I didn’t know where to start. I had no direction.

GoDaddy Website Builder Pricing: Avoid Hidden Costs [2022]

A word of advice: The GoDaddy website builder has plenty of good features, but it comes with a ton of hidden costs. The advertised prices go up significantly after the first year, and none of the plans include a custom domain.  If you’re looking for a builder that offers everything great about GoDaddy – and one where you know what you’re paying for – I recommend...
