Building your own website

Posted on August 11, 2017 at 3:56 pm

Many companies are now advertising DIY websites, allowing people of a non technical background the opportunity to build their own website. These companies usually offer websites at a very low price and the idea is that you add and remove features that are necessary to your business site.

These website can be great for people who do not want to spend a lot of money and have the time to manage the sites themselves but they are also not always as effective as you may think.

These types of sites are often created using templates which millions of other people have access to meaning that your website may look very similar to your competitors. They usually have limited functionality, meaning if you want to add something that is a little different or bespoke to your company you may not have the ability to do so. They often do not work well in terms of SEO and often are missing some of the fundamental elements that websites should be built with.

It may be that you start off with a website like this but you will need to be aware that you may have to do a lot of the advertising yourself through social media or pay per click for example, to get traffic to your site.
