Why Carrd is good for indie makers

You may already know plenty about Carrd, but why and where is it a great tool to use in your projects? So here's a quick outline of what Carrd is and why we think it's good for makers, and a summary of it's good and bad points.

Carrd is a simple website builder tool. It's designed for building one-page websites, although it can do multi-page sites too (more on that in our Carrd Quick Start Guide).

The beauty of Carrd in our opinion, is that it's not aimed at any particular use case. It's not so too complicated, or too basic. It has enough flexibility in it to make great sites without a big learning curve. That means you can quickly build almost any kind of simple website, easily – a personal profile, a newsletter signup, a product landing page, and so on.

It's also very cost effective to use. We don't know of another web platform where you can launch sites on custom domains for so little.

The free plan gives you 3 sites (without custom domains) and the lowest Pro plan gives you 10 sites (on custom domains) for only $19/yr. That's just $1.90 to run a site, per year.

Carrd's good & bad points

  • Low running cost for each website, vs other platforms

  • Super fast building – from idea to launch, in minutes

  • Easy to add highly visual elements - SVG images, large videos or gifs

  • No CMS or API (can't do much with data or external sources)

  • No blog as part of the native platform

  • Ability to customise design is good, but not extensive
