Why You Should Not Design Your Own Website
1. You Do Not Own The Website
Many companies like wix allow you to develop a website using a website builder or template. So after paying for your website and spending weeks attempting to make “your website” yours” and possibly getting close to what you want, you may possibly want to hire a professional web designer to appropriately design a professional website to represent your business. Now all of those long days and wasted time are flushed down the toilet..as soon as you stop paying your monthly fee, you lose your website.
Free website templates and DIY web builders typically be customized how you’d like, are very boring, and are not interactive at all. If you wanted to add an something special or add additional content, a basic website template or web builder offered by these companies wouldn’t give you this option. If you think you’re the first person to benefit from a free website builder, think again–there are thousands of other companies that have made the mistake of using the same, boring, generic template. Now you’re stuck with a site that looks like everyone else’s. How unique is that?
Web development is absolutely difficult work, and it takes a lot of time to build a wonderful, unique website. If you’re not a professional web developer, the hours upon hours you spend trying to create a website could be more efficiently spent generating business and growing your client base. Why not let someone with experience and knowledge build it, it’ll save you time and money.
It’s simple, a website made by an professional web developer will look PROFESSIONAL. Isn’t that what you want for yourself?
5.Not Google Friendly
With a DIY website builder, Google cannot verify your site. Google uses complex algorithms that may be too advanced for some people, but for a professional web developer who uses Google Webmaster Tools or Google Analytics everyday, it can be used to monitor site downtime, crawl rates, bounce ratings, load times, broken links and search traffic.
