It’s not a new thing when we hear small business owners repeatedly saying that they can build a website of their own and can save money that goes in hiring a digital agency.
Well, people love running to the dead end and eventually need to seek help after finding no way to hit the target, or maybe they tried pole vault but broke their vision. Ooooooooh!
Nowadays, almost everybody knows someone who plays with Photoshop / Coral Draw features or who created Word Press / HTML projects during their college projects and presented or possibly ranked the best in the class.
How much can it be linked to doing an actual job on a website that will compete with countless other rivals who have gained popularity successfully and have sculpted their place by hard work with a shovel – or maybe they have sealed their place their high quality cement? HA: HA!
If you are the one who is looking to save money, make sure, you read the following reasons carefully before doing it all over again after you invest your time in overseeing the free stuff or less paid things.
Lack of Professional Guidance
Web Designing colleagues and experts in the digital space and maestros love oatmeal web design. You can see how the ambition or limited awareness of a person drives him down the wrong direction and steer him away from the much anticipated digital achievement.
You have to risk something to get it-and that always happens when it comes to creating a website.
Without a web design team, though, you may feel you ‘re moving in the right direction, but you won’t have the expertise to say the difference for the best practices and to turn your attention to current developments in the industry and such stuff.
Another important thing you’ll get from an accomplished web designer is the expertise in the industry experience which comes from working on different businesses projects with different goals. It shapes the mind of the designer and he can seek ideas where others see nothing. That’s what experience does– and designers are no exceptions.
Hence, an experienced web designer offers best practices to make your website stand out from the crowd. Moreover, increased visits, lead generation, or cart checkouts are main elements to consider before finalizing your decision regarding the design or building website of your own.
Let’s say; you want to sell products on your website, then you don’t want fancy widgets or any other thing that can take your visitors away or become barricade between you and your customers. You want to incorporate right approach in your website that can bridge the gap and you can see an increase in your sales.
Lack of monitoring and support
No one wants to live a day seeing the tremendous decline in the web traffic and the reason remains unknown.
How horrible moments can this be for business? Unless you haven’t hired a marketing agency to create your website, you’re never going to know the true reason for this. Leave on discovering the reason, in most situations, you won’t even know that this is happening to your website.
Before hiring us, many of clients witnessed a huge drop in their virtual sales, and worst, some websites were down, which is truly awful in terms of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and web credibility.
Moreover, making design or creating/adding functionalities can be costly and time-consuming, especially if you don’t have a web development agency, managing your website.
Often people rent an organization before the project is completed. Now the money they save here is for maintenance of the website, which can be a real game changer, particularly when you’re in the race and can’t afford to lose your ranking or web traffic.
And if in case you get a problem during your website run, you will have to shelve out extra bucks to the designer or developer to understand the current set up and finding the issue etc.
If you have a consistent web agency, you will not face this kind of problems. Moreover, they will share their knowledge of the best practices.
Lack of Editing Control Post-Launch
Now the issue occurs when modifications are made. If you don’t have a webmaster professional who takes care of your website, it means you should do it yourself.
So, if you’ve not set up yourself a website or have little or no experience, then you’re entering the danger zone. We have a customer who relies on the designer for any improvements-and he runs a reputable website for e-commerce website in Canada.
What really matter is having the control or admin panel to manage the website once the lead developer/designer does its job. It gives you the room to upload new products especially if you are running an e-commerce website.
Get your business website designed by professionals
There are advantages of choosing a web development company over an individual web designer/developer or an acquaintance/friend that work for less. Often it has been observed that clients spend more afterwards when they try to get a cheap website developed because at the end; they have to shelve out more money in order to improve the website’s performance.
Chances are; the web company has to redesign the features or fix the issues, and imagine the cost and time it will need to fix the issues to meet the end goal.
