Website Builders vs Website Designers
October 3, 2018
What is the best website builder?
You have a domain name now you need a website. You are thinking about a website builder, but which one? There are many to choose from and they make very impressive presentations. They are easy to use, some even provide templates and pictures. All you need to do is choose which one you want to use. Once you do, you are done.
Or are you?
Using a website builder has many advantages. I am not putting them down. They serve a good part of the website community. I just want to make you aware of what they may be costing you.
You decide to use the X website builder. You set up your account and after a few hours you have a beautiful website. After a few days you make a change or two so you can tweak it the way you want and you are done.
You wait for your website to get in the search engine results and check for it every day but you don't see any results. Why? You keep looking but never see any change - what could be the problem?
A few months later you want to add a new page. So you log in and everything looks different, you don't see where to add a new page. You contact support and they tell you they can help you but there is a cost involved to get assistance. So you decide to move your website to a different company only to find out you have built your site on a prioritized builder that can't be moved to another host. Are you stuck? No, but because of what you did not know you do have a problem.
These are only a few example problems that if you are not aware of can end up costing you - in more ways than one.
The question should be 'Who is the best web design builder?' (or website designer)
What I have described above is just a portion of issues you should be aware of, including the picture at the top.
Some other issues to be aware of are:
- Speed of your website
- Do you have a secure domain
- Is your website mobile ready
- How are your social signals
- Is your website responsibe
A website builder will not be able to tell you information like this. In order to get these questions answered properly you will need to speak to a website designer. A website designer will be able to build you a complete website from your specs and also help you with content to add to your site (which is one of the most difficult things to do on your webpages). Your website designer will make sure all your issues and problems are taken care of as well as other items that you were not aware of.
After your new website is built he will be able to tell you the speed as well as any other details that you may want to know. The designer will also ask you a few more questions:
- Are you going to update your website pages yourself?
- Are you going to update your website plugins yourself? (A.K.A maintaining your site)
- Do you want your website designer to maintain your site for you?
- Do you want your website modified for SEO - Search Engine Optimization?
- Do you need your website designer to maintain your social signals for you?
These and many other questions will be asked by a good designer. You can save a lot of time and effort by using the right website designer.
