I made a quick Typeform to help everyone generate a quick blurb.

They all include logic loops so they never collect information. They just loop forever.

This one is easier to navigate and edit answers:

Hey everyone, I made this list of quick and free/cheap resources to use to help establish your brand and start selling.

I recommend these over SquareSpace and other robust site builders, due to their simplicity and Pagespeed. Here's an article on the importance of Pagespeed.


page-builders

Carrd.co

“Build one-page sites for pretty much anything.”

Used widely by BLM and other cultural movements to disseminate information quickly. Very robust and simple editor even with the free package.

Offers better site-metrics and pagespeed than many other “linktree” type sites.

Pro plans start at $9/year: https://carrd.co/pro Use my referral if you want: https://try.carrd.co/c1s6s3sx


Write.as

“Less distraction, more writing.”

Great for quick notes and longer posts, and allows submission from people outside of your blog.

Can just start writing with the free but posts are anonymous.

Paid plan starts at $4/month. https://write.as/ referral-link


payment-processors

Alternatives to Venmo and Cashapp, that make inventory and invoicing easier.

Gumroad

“Creators deserve to get paid for their work. Gumroad makes it easy.”

Free to setup Easy and great for listing products in minutes and start selling. Inventory tracking and preorders.

Fees

  • 8.5% + $0.30 (USD) per sale.

SquareUp

“Tools to run your business—even when it’s not business as usual.”

Point of Sales, invoicing, and online store. Free to setup.

Fees

  • Manually keyed cards: 3.5% + 15¢
  • Online Store: 2.9% + 30¢
  • Card-present: 2.6% + 10¢

Stripe

“A complete payments platform, engineered for growth.

IMO: The most robust payment system, with the best integrations. Paypal's biggest “competitor.” Point of Sales, invoicing, and integrations.

Fees

  • Cards and wallets: 2.9% + 30¢

PayPal

“Sell safely with custom printed products”

The “OG” of online payment processors.

Pre-requisites

atom

I'm more of a visual editor. I don't know vim... and while this isn't the lightest editor available, it behaves a lot like Chrome.

Git

Git is how you'll manage your repositories. You'll also need a github account.

Node

Node is our runtime, it's how'll we run and serve our local server.

Some of them may have their own dependencies. Based on what OS you're using. HMU if you need help getting started.

Here's the template I'm using at the moment.

You can just deploy it on Netlify if you want. (Easiest way to get started.)

Now our framework:

Here's a list of:

11ty

starter-projects.

From here you can use the README.md and it should put you on your path to hosting your first 💯FREE website.


Here are some code snippets I use all the time:

1. To change to your repository where your drive and repository directory.

cd /mnt/(drive letter)/(repository name)

2. To install dependencies:

npm install

3. This step is only required the very first time.

npm run build

4. To start your server: (you'll be using this the most.)

npm run start

5. Now you're website should be hosted at

http://localhost:8080/

Alternatively, you can clone my repo @https://github.com/okpebbs/okpebbs.org and start building from there.

carrd is also an amazing platform,

it is waaay simpler, but doesn't quite have the same flexibility and doesn't support markdown natively.
