The benefits of building your website yourself

Building your website yourself in HubSpot's CMS is definitely doable. HubSpot is known worldwide for its user-friendliness. Once you get used to HubSpot, you'll never want to change to another system. Other systems, such as Salesforce and WordPress for instance, tend to be a lot less intuitive. 

Want to build your site all by yourself? Then get access to the intuitive HubSpot Website Builder. In this tool, you can easily build your website page-by-page.

Do you get scared when you hear the word "coding"? Good news: coding skills are not required within Website Builder! However, coding skills can make your website stand out from all your competitors. Chances are that several companies use the same HubSpot themes and templates. You can read more about this "disadvantage" in the next section.
