So you have a great idea for a business. Nowadays there are so many tools for​ growing your business​ and the best news is that most of them are free! Of course, the first thing you’ll think of is when you have that brainstorm of an idea is that you’re going to need a website.

One of the best web builders on the market, that is so easy to use even your dog could do it is​ Wix.


Wix​ is a free, user-friendly platform that lets you create your own stunning website, for free. Wix’s super simple drag ​ ‘n’ drop feature enables budding entrepreneurs to access hundreds of fully customizable designer-made templates, and tons of cool Apps! All this comes with top-grade, reliable hosting. Simplicity is the winning element here, just pick a template, add your own text and images, hit publish, and you’re done!

Got a little more time on your hands? You can customize anything you want, add cool features like rotating 3D galleries, slideshows and animations, use Wix’s free image collection, promote your site with Social Media tools, and even send great looking emails to your audience. And the cool part is that Wix is always adding more stuff – last year alone the company released over 350 new features, Apps and templates!

So now you’ve got the bones of your website you’ll want to start adding in the content. Most people now recognize that having a video on their website is valuable for their marketing strategy, but they often lack two things: the skill to make a video (which is, of course, where PowToon comes in!) and the knowledge about how to use it on their site, which is where Wistia comes in!


In a nutshell, here and you’ll get the promo details in your “Welcome” email. So a PowToon-Wistia integration is a super powerful combo that enables any marketer or small business owner to make and market terrific looking videos!

Although you’re brimming over with ideas for your business, you may not have time to produce them all yourself. Enter Elance-oDesk…
