If you watch cable TV or listen to AM radio, you have likely heard about free website offers from companies like GoDaddy, Network Solutions or 1and1.
What these commercials fail to mention is the hours of trial and error it will take to build a functional website, but also that the system your site is built on utilizes inferior technology. When the free website offer is up, you will be stuck with a hosting bill for a website that will has extremely limited capabilities.
Starting with the wrong expectation and technology will kill your chance for success before you even get started online. While building a website has never been easier and more accessible, there are certain skills required to build something that is functional, let alone professional looking. Your website is often the first chance you have to make an impression, and if it looks like crap, what will people think about the rest of your operation?
Instead of building your website on the cheap and getting an inferior product, it is a much better idea to work closely with someone that can help you put together a complete plan for building, growing and marketing your website. In this day and age, there are so many powerful strategies for connecting with your customers, and an expert can help you pick which ones to take advantage of, and then help you implement a winning strategy.
If you are building your site independently with no input from an expert, you are losing out on information that can only be gained through years of experience. A website marketing expert can do more with less, and can help you make the best decisions moving forward, starting with the content management system you pick to run your site.
Here at bizdetail, we use an open source solution called WordPress for a majority of the websites we build, because it is highly flexible and incredibly powerful, so much so that no instant website builder type of product offered for free from godaddy or 1 and 1 could ever compare. Other developers use the same product, and the advantage of working with us is that we handle the entire building of your site, and can either continue to manage it for you once that process is done, or train you to take over.
Once we have installed your CMS, we build out your site following a website development path that has been established over the course of building hundreds of business websites. Rather than wasting the time teaching yourself what takes many years to master from scratch, hire an expert because it will save you time. There are other people that do what we do, but nobody does it quite like us.
