So you are looking at taking your business online. That should be easy, right? Just choose one of the hundred or so DIY website builders and build your amazing site that is going to bring in so many customers you won’t know what to do. It’s going to be simple and you should be able to still take your afternoon stroll this afternoon. How easy is that!? Yeah, you could do that but is DIY webdesign really the best way to go? All these instant DIY website builders that promise easy to use, customized and cost effective websites promise all sorts of things but really they may not be the best option. Here are a few reasons why you should hire a professional instead.
The experts will keep you and your site safe
Do you know about site security? Do you really have the time to learn about how people break into websites and deface them, use your domain to start sending spam or even worse?
Yeah, those DIY places have some nice looking sites with their content in them, but how do they look with your information in them? How does the look and feel of the site compare to your brand? Does it follow your brand guidelines? Honestly if you visited a site for a business and it had the same look as another site you visited before, would it make a good impression? Does it look like they are successful?
Do you something custom? Is there special information that you want to share? Is this website builder really going to be able to handle your business’s specific needs?
Let’s face it. Nobody is an expert on everything. You know how to run your business and are probably really good at it, but why try to be an expert in your business as well as site design, SEO, security, user experience, etc.
A professional web designer knows how to build a fast, secure website that will perform well for your visitors and with search engines. Hiring a professional will give your business an edge that no pre-made template can give you. Your website will be something that thousands of people around the world may look at every day. Make sure that it represents what you want the world to see.
