Whether you have a small start-up or are a larger set-up, having a business website is a necessity that you just can’t get away from, but with so many websites out there to compete with, it is important that your website is going to work for you, both in terms of design and functionality.
There are many do-it-yourself or cheaper amateur options out there, but these may result in being a false economy, not giving you the results that you had hoped for. This is where you can benefit from working with a website company, and here’s why…
With DIY options, you will be limited to certain templates and will find it harder to really get a style that is really unique to your business and brand. Working with a website design company will give you the opportunity to gain some valuable expertise in terms of design options, and have a choice of designs for you decide between, before going for your preferred design.
Expertise and Experience
A website company will have a wealth of expertise and experience with what does and doesn’t work in terms of website design and capabilities. They will also be able to offer valuable insights in what is currently trending in the website arena and can offer advice on things that you may not have even considered, but actually adds a lot to the design of your site.
By working with a website design company, you are likely to also have access to expertise in other areas such a content writing, digital marketing, social media management and SEO services. You will also have access to a professional who is able to host your website, ensure that it is secure and backed-up, as well as offering support, advice and updates to your website when you require them. You will not be left on your own with a website that you are unsure how to maintain, but instead will have a partnership meaning that you can concentrate on your role and leave the website maintenance to someone who truly knows what they are doing.
Well meaning amateurs and DIY sites may have good intentions, but sometimes there are certain aspects of a website design that need to be altered to be mobile friendly. Often a site will look perfect on desktop, but as soon as it is viewed on a mobile device, images and sections of the page may not be positioned correctly. This is something that you won’t need to worry about when working with a website design company, as this is something that they deal with on a daily basis.
Good Turnaround Times
If you work with a website design company, you will be given a timescale for when your website will be ready which is obviously a bonus. Working with amateurs or creating a DIY site yourself leaves you open to having a big question mark over when your website will be ready to launch.
Working with a website design company may prove to be the most cost effective option, especially if (like Clever Business Websites) there are no upfront fees to worry about. You will be getting a high quality service for a monthly payment, instead of spending money on someone who you have never met, who will create the site for you then potentially leave you high and dry, a story we have heard many times before.
In summary, working with a website design company will ensure you that you are receiving a professional service from a team of people who do this every single day. They will have processes in place, timescales, and the right website knowledge and experience to create a website that you can be proud of.
