Promotional Website - experiences - Dreamstime

Yesterday I made my first promotional website, and I want to share my experiences here on DT.

You can check it out here

It took me very little time to make it (it's not finished yet, but I'm not going to add much to it soon) because I used Google sites as a platform.

I was rally impressed how fast and easy it was to make it.

It actually took me just one afternoon to make it :)

Here is how it works:

Google sites ( is an online site creation tool which helps you easily create websites. You can also use html to code some parts of the website, but I noticed that not all html tags are allowed :(

Google will host your website on their own servers and will give you some web address like (you are always going to have in the beginning of address). When you create site you can easily connect your internet domain (you need to rant an internet domain if you want to use one) with your website.

After I created my website I connected it with Google Analitics. Google Analitcs ( is another free web application which monitors traffic on websites and gives you many useful statistics.

Summary (Good and Bad things I have noticed)


Very simple and easy to use.

User friendly.


You don't need any specialised software to create your websites.

You don't need to worry about web hosting.

You can easily connect your site with Google Analytics to control traffic on your website.

There are numerous templates and gadgets you can easily add to your web sites


Not all html tags are allowed.

Limited possibilities.
