THE BENEFITS OF USING A WEB DEVELOPER OVER DIY SITES
April 11 2017
In a world where everyone is looking for the most cost effective way of getting the job done, using a DIY website is not always the best way of getting your brand online.
Yes, there is a valid argument that you can pay a small monthly fee and there is no lump some financial outlay for you but if you are looking to invest in the future of your business then employing the services of a professional web design company would be your best bet.
Don’t Be Fooled By The Easy To Build Concept
Many of the large email hosting companies will encourage you to use their ‘web builder’ software and this is very easy to use. However, the chances are that you are not a web designer and/or developer therefore you may not be able to get the right look that suits your brand. Often it is your website that is the first time people will be able to see your business so having a professionally designed website is a great place to start.
One key advantage of using a web developer is that you can easily communicate with them and get the look you are ideally looking for. A developer’s role is not just to build your website but to also advise on what styles and designs are currently trending for your industry. If you often find yourself with limited time, why would you want to add ‘build website’ to your already growing to-do list?
A Website Should Evolve
A website is not just for the now but it should evolve into an ongoing project so ask yourself honestly; do you have the time and the skill sets to continually make changes to the website? In the eyes of Google, the more content you are continually adding to your website, the better the chances are of being found in the search engines for the key words in your industry. So, you will need to be able to add more pages, add more blogs and change the text over time. A web developer can do this with the search engines in mind.
Are You Able To Host Your Own Website?
Many people will forget that a website needs to stay live in order for it to be seen. This may sound like an obvious statement but web developers are often able to help you with your domain hosting and registration. If there is a problem with your website, your developer can help you resolve this and sometimes very quickly which means your brand remains online.
More often than not, DIY website builders will charge you extra for more email accounts that you have which will now start to increase your monthly costs. Within three years you would have probably paid double the price than a professional web developer.
