SiteW enables you to create a showcase website for free. Creating a showcase website with 5 pages is free on SiteW.

As seen above, it’s easy to create a professional website on SiteW: you just need to sign up with an email address to accede to the web design page.
Then, you choose your custom template as well as package, and you have access to our online editor.
Once there, use your mouse to create your professional website. You drag and drop all the blocks where you want on your page and then, you configure them on the left panel.
You just need one tab to edit your professional website on your screen.
Web design is useful, intuitive, fast, and fun!
The structure is the first step in the creation of your professional website.
First, go to the Pages panel where managing your pages:
add as many pages as necessary by clicking on the + button
name and order the pages by moving them with your mouse
optimize the pages for search engines and make them visible online (you can customize URL and metadata and limit the access with a password or reserve it to the members if possible)
the background page will enable you to add elements common to all pages
On the Content panel, you’ll find all the content elements (blocks) you can add to your pages: images, videos, texts, buttons, maps, calendars, forms, hours, search bar, FAQ section, comments, etc.
Once again, you just need to drag the blocks on your page with your mouse.
Use alignment tools of the horizontal toolbar, at the top of the page (just click on the pink dotted lines) to place your elements perfectly.
Once you have positioned your block and selected it with just one click, it’ll be possible to configure it (choose its different options) in the blue panel.
The green tab enables you to release your creativity by customizing and optimizing your design.
From this panel, you will be totally free to customize and make your website design elements harmonious:
you will choose your colours and fonts to match with the image you want to convey
you will have the possibility to edit your page background and add transition effects
it will be possible to customize all your element style: footer, menus, buttons, search bar, etc.
In the same way as you can configure the options of your selected blocks on the blue panel, you can click on the green tab to edit their style.

When you work on your professional website design, think about user experience and visual identity, which are essential design elements. The identity visual will serve user experience and vice versa.
Here are our tips to create a professional, clear, user-friendly, and sightly website:
Choose three plain and harmonious colours. If you need help, our palette will suggest colours.
Opt for a few basic and legible fonts, so that your website remains easy and pleasant to read.
Space out your texts and add many illustrations to them. Split long writings into paragraphs, with titles and subtitles. Add lists and create visual sections with coloured geometric shapes, separators, strips, or full width images.
Optimize your browsing elements (buttons, links, footer, menus, etc.) and place them in conventional and expected places to not throw visitors.
Select your graphic elements, colours, fonts, images… according to the visual identity (values, emotions, impressions…) you want to convey for your business.
Well, you have created a beautiful professional website, but now, it’s time to promote it online! 📣
