If you are considering hiring professional developers or an ad agency to build your business’ website, we would like you to pause right there. Think a moment of how costly it will be for you to have a third party come in and build a website for you. Even though it does hold its own list of advantages if you are in the position and have some time to build it yourself, why not do it?
In this post, we take a look at 7 of the main benefits of building your very own website with the help of an easy-to-use page builder. Let’s jump right in!
#1 No expertise in Coding needed
Page builders like Wix or Weebly or even most WordPress themes are so easy to use and intuitive that you won’t even have to think about getting a professional developer or programmer involved. You can even just drag and drop the elements just the way you like them, customise the colors, fonts, add your logo, you name it. These page builders already have the code they need encrypted so you are basically working from a user-friendly CMS which allows you to edit the site to your liking.
#2 Save some money
Outsourcing development and marketing is costly, no matter how you look at it. If you get the help of a professional web and ad agency in, you end up paying everyone’s salary. Even though they have the skills and expertise, you are still able to create your very own site in less time, with less effort, and way less money on your own.
#3 Access to specific features
If you use a page builder you are more than likely eligible to receive multiple images, fonts, you name it. You can customise your website exactly to your liking. In fact, the wand is completely in your hands, and the way you want it to look, is the end-product you will have, no questions asked.
#4 Very easy to use
Most of the page builders available on the market are designed and developed with the idea that it is designed for someone who does not understand tech and coding, so it is kept simple and intuitive for whoever is using it. In most cases, you will be able to use a drag and drop tool on a user-friendly interface and put your page layout together very easily and quickly.
#5 The pretty factor
You know what your brand’s image is, and you know how you want it to be portrayed on the World Wide Web. The controls are completely in your hands, and you won’t have to worry about it looking like a 3-year-old did it either. You have the option to choose from multiple existing themes and you can customise it, with a perfect finishing touch, of course.
#6 User-friendly designs
As page builder themes and sites have been developed and designed by professional designers and developers, they have done the legwork and know what users respond well to. They know the intricacies of user experience design and have incorporated it in the themes you are able to choose from. Users will, therefore, be able to navigate easily from one page to the next, without a hassle.
#7 Easy updates
If you are outsourcing, you are probably also going to have to be on the phone all the time to them to ask for changes or updates on your site (at a cost of course). If you decide to go via a page builder, you can just skip that whole nightmare and deal with it yourself. Keep your finger on the pulse of what is happening on your website without any headaches or heartaches, or pocket aches.
