You have an alternative – use a website builder – but is it right for your business?

Professional website design comes at a cost – but our emphasis here is on the word ‘Professional’. Your website reflects your business – if it looks amateur – the perception of your business will be that you are an amateur – so why would people bother doing business with you?

There are many website builder products on the market now. Some of the more well-known builders are Wix, Go-Daddy, 1&1, Weebly. They, generally, offer a free platform for you to build a website.

Before website builders became mainstream, websites were written manually by computer programmers using a variety of computer codes. This entailed anyone building a website to be well versed in programming languages and computer code. Today, this is no longer the case. The best website builders are easy-to-use programs that make it easy for anyone to create their own website.

A website builder makes the possibility of a webpage available to virtually anyone.

These websites can not only advertise a product, but also showcase a blog, a service, incorporate e-commerce functionality, or even help you organise text and content.

Typically, users begin their site construction by selection from a wide array of pre-designed website templates. These templates offer various structures, styles and vibes which you can mix and match according to your preferences. They may also vary in functionality. Some templates are designed with attractive galleries for photography or design websites, others with multi-media plug-ins for musicians, performers or sales presentations.

You can also add multimedia such as video to give your website that extra professional feel.

But having the tools to do the job does not mean you can do the job. Many people attempt home improvements with disastrous effects. Not everyone can be an artist or a musician even though they pick up a guitar or a paint brush.

Professional website design is a mixture of having the competence to use the tools correctly and having the artistic flair that brings colour and images together in a way that looks and feels professional. At New Eye Web Design, we have that experience, competence and flair to produce ‘Professional’ websites that reflect your professionalism.
