A decision most business owners face at some point of time is opening and developing a website. This decision remains fairly simple but deciding how to go about creating this website becomes tricky. Nowadays, as everything has become relatively simple so has website development to an extent so companies can decide to either do it themselves or hire a website development professional to do it for them. So what is the difference between the two and is it worth going through carefully?
How does DIY website development work?
The digital era has allowed for the development website building tools that are now either free or paid and gives users the complete freedom to create their own website without the help of a web developer.
These DIY website building tools however provide a variety of templates and various settings that enable customization. These customizations vary from titles, headings, images, colors, layouts, logos etc. The best way to describe these tools is their incorporation of the drag and drop format that allow users to create their own website without any complicated coding.
What are the issues with DIY Website developing?
Despite how easy a drag and drop website may sound like, the quality in comparison to a fully coded website will greatly differ. Despite the drop in cost in comparison to hiring directly from a digital marketing agency, most of the free features on these DIY tools are very limited. The fine print ultimately mentions that DIY website building tools have additional costs for domains, they have premium versions, paid hosting and of course a lot more additional costs.
According to recounts or rather complaints by several DIY website building customers, they said recalled that, templates were limited in option, the website limits SEO efforts, a lot of websites looked more or less the same, limited to no extensions to add new features and so many other issues.
Why develop a Website with an Agency?
