Thinking about designing and building your own website?
If you are a business owner without a website, you may be tempted to build your own site using one of the many ‘drag and drop’ applications available online.
You may think this will save you time and money in the long run, but this is very rarely the case. In fact, there are a number of reasons why we would strongly advise against creating your own website.
Do you run an ‘out-of-the-box’ business?
The problem with self-build websites is they rely heavily on templates and basic functions. It is not possible to create a stunning and unique website using the same templates as thousands of others before you. An ‘out-of-the-box’ website is never going to be one that catches the eye and in a fast-paced industry, an eye-catching website is a must.
Getting seen by Google
You have spent days creating your very own website, but your site is not being ranked by any search engines. What should you do? Do you have the know-how to get your website seen and ranked highly by Google?
If the answer is no, do not waste your precious time trying to create your own website as it will not be seen by your target audience and will do little more than occupy a domain name.
When things go wrong
Many of these self-build applications are marketed as being simple to use, but what if you encounter a problem?
Technical support is almost always non-existent, leaving you with no option other than to trawl through user guides and online forums to try to find a solution.
First impressions matter
Did you know that when a visitor arrives on your website, you have just FIVE seconds to make an impression?
Yes, you have read that right! If your website does not make a great first impression within the first 5 seconds, your visitor will leave your site and take their business to your competitors.
