Can You Build Your Own Website?
Of course, but a better question is should you? There are certainly a lot of services out there that say you should and they definitely make it look easy. Before spending a lot of your time and possibly wasted effort, there are a few things you need to consider.
Creating a truly great website that gets noticed takes so much more than just picking some colors and moving some images around. That’s why those services offer so many third party addons.
What You Don’t Get:
- No Valuable Content
- Not Google Friendly
- No Accurate Reporting
- No help making a great user experience
What You Get
You get a basic website template, some stock images, and no traffic. Having a “basic” website is only 10% of what you need. You’ll also be on a shared service which can be pooled together with thousands of other websites, some of which, can hurt your website’s search ranking.
One of the main reasons to have a website is to add credibility to your business. Maybe having a free or $1 website doesn’t accurately represent your company or it’s commitment to its customers?
Not All Bad
Maybe a starter website may be all you need right now. However, you still need to come up with great content that will convince customers that you’re good at what you do. If that’s where you are, try our Express Website Service.
