The reason I’m writing this post is because I am fielding more calls from business owners who are frustrated with trying to build their own website.
I’m also getting calls from business owners who made a Wix website but their website can’t be found on Google, even after a year of being live.
These business owners don’t know what to do.
Problems with DIY site builders
Site builders like Wix, Weebley, and Squarespace make it sound like you can knock out a quick website in an afternoon.
Publish your site, then sit back and let the money roll in. Right?
Wrong. It’s just not true.
Building your own website is not easy!
Do you have the time to become an expert at everything that’s involved, or are you busy trying to run your own business?
It might be tempting to make your website using drag-and-drop builders like Wix and Weebly. But, as you get started, you soon realize there’s a lot more to it.
What you don’t know is that these website builders generate messy code that you can’t see. That’s bad for search engine optimization – your SEO – and will hurt your rankings on Google.
And when you need help, you are completely on your own with zero support.
It’s time to hire a Web Designer
Building a successful website requires a wide range of skills.
Creating a website requires knowledge of the following:
- Graphic design software
- Writing and customizing web code
- Designing for the user experience
- Optimization for today’s search engine requirements
- How to submit to Google
If you don’t have design skills and you don’t feel comfortable with SEO, you could be making some critical mistakes when trying to build your own website.
Mistakes that could cost you losing potential customers to your competitors because their website ranks well on Google.
