5 Types of Websites You Can Build With Notion

Résumé Site

Your resume opens doors for your future career, and while having a paper resume is beneficial, an electronic résumé is more convenient. An online résumé can also be readily submitted, accessed by anyone you choose and, is simple to update.
Notion makes setting up a resume site simple with their resume templates, but you can also create your own template using the drag and drop editor if you prefer a unique approach to your resume.
If you are looking for a basic resume template, the Simple Notion résumé template is free and resembles a basic paper resume. Although the Simple Notion résumé template is rather bland, it does feature everything necessary for a job hunter with a no-nonsense “get right to business” attitude. When it comes down to it, hiring professionals would much rather face a simple resume template than an overly-complicated one!
Don’t worry, though, if you are looking for something a little less traditional, but you don’t want to create your own template either, there are more than a few more intricate Résumé templates around.  We suggest looking into:
  • Limitless Notion Résumé & Profile Templates.
  • Interactive Digital Résumé.
  • Coolest Résumé CV - Notion template.

eCommerce Website

Whether you are a mom-and-pop shop or a larger eCommerce storefront, Notion has the features needed to make your site build simple!
The simplest way to set up an eCommerce site through Notion is to download the Notion Ecommerce Business KIT widget. The eCommerce website kit widget costs $72, but promo codes are often available for a percentage off the purchase price.
The eCommerce website kit for Notion comes complete with everything you need to run an eCommerce business - included in the kit are:
  • 30+ eCommerce Notion templates.
  • Full setup guide.
  • Out-of-the-box workspace.
  • Lifetime access and updates.
  • Learning resources.
Additionally, the Notion platform also offers eCommerce users -
Pricing Tables
Setting up and displaying pricing on an eCommerce store should be easy, but not all web design platforms make it as easy as Notion. The Notion pricing feature allows for columnar and tabled pricing information with one click!
Calls to Action
Notion also allows for a quick call to action content box - with one click, you can add an attractive half or full-width call to action with a custom icon.

Portfolio Website

Whether you are an artist, architect, landscaper, or product designer, a portfolio website helps to showcase your work while allowing the viewer to look through it at their own pace. Notion is a great platform to create this type of site because with the multiple portfolio website templates available, editing and publishing get done in a snap.
If you prefer to take a more unique approach to the design of your portfolio website, however, Notion also allows you to build your site using the drag and drop site builder. Heroes and headers help features stand out, and a callout button makes it easy for interested hiring parties to contact you.
Additionally, the Notion platform also offers portfolio creators the option to add testimonials from previous clients and provide the choice to add in an eCommerce store showcasing current work for sale!

Company Website

Companies big and small are already creating corporate websites and internal workspaces using Notion.
Setting up a company website is simple with the Notion drag and drop builder, and hundreds of corporate templates that suit a range of niches make the job even easier!
Easy to use company website features include:
  • Pricing tables.
  • Call to action content boxes.
  • Bullet point sections.
  • App store buttons.
  • Heroes.
  • Headers.
  • Social grid.
  • Testimonials.
  • Feature sections.
  • Multimedia gallery support.
  • Ecommerce support for on-site shopping.
Setting up an interior website for intraoffice communication is easy with Notion, too.
Multiple workspaces can be assigned to different teams allowing for better teamwork and helping to maintain organization and keep communication fluid. This collaboration is enhanced by being able to tag-team members for specific tasks, set due dates, and create links between tasks to create a more fluid workflow.
The Notion platform brings another perk to intraoffice workspaces, too – it allows for multiple file types to be accessed, stored, and edited straight from the Notion interface. This versatility with file formats means no more hopping between programs to locate files – everything the team needs can be sorted into a visual hierarchy and even divided into file types directly through Notion.

A Blog

In addition to corporate websites, intraoffice websites, eCommerce stores, and resumes, Notion also makes a good platform for bloggers. As it is for intraoffice websites, the all-inclusive layout of Notion makes design and publishing easier than many other platforms. Blogging with Notion means no coding, and a simple drag and drop interface makes it easy to place and edit design elements and content.
Notion also makes blogging easier for the simple fact that bloggers can even integrate apps and embed content in their Notion blogs to get more from the workspace! Using an API through third-party apps like Zapier, bloggers can integrate apps like:
  • Gmail
