We know a quality web design can build a very good first impression and can make a good conversion. If your website is directly your business websites then having a good responsive web design is a must because you can’t take the risk of losing potential leads. We all want our website to be high quality and want to turn the website into a money-making machine.
Do you need a professional
From my experience, the answer is yes always? If you have only a personal blog and you know the basics of coding and you can operate a basic theme then you may skip hiring a professional. Website’s like Blogger or WordPress offers some free themes. You can go with those. But if you have a business and you’ll give all your effort to make this business website a successful one then you need to contact a reputed web design company. You can share all your ideas and requirements with them and can get a custom website exactly as you need.
Professional vs Free Website Builder
There are many free website builders out there like Webnode, Wix, Weebly, Jimdo, Ucraft, etc. Those websites offer free plans to build your website too. They are hosted in the cloud so you don’t need to worry about web space. All you need is your computer and web browsers like Chrome, Mozilla, or Microsoft Edge. Sounds easy, right? But you need to take a close look at the pros and cons of those sites. Can you pick them for your business website? My answer is NO. Cause business choices are specific and you need a custom design for the services you are offering.
Reasons to Pick a Free Website Builder:
- You can apply your own web editing skill.
- Free/low budget alternative
Reasons to Avoid a Free Website Builder:
- Lack of website support
- Future website proofing
- You don’t own your website.
- Lack of customization
- Lack of security
- Limited functionality
- Has SEO shortcomings
Responsive High Quality Design
If you ever analyzed the web traffic especially where they are coming from which devices they are using then you’ll see they are not using a desktop computer. A very large number of web users uses a smartphone. You’ll also get traffic from iPad and other devices. If your site is not mobile-friendly then the bounce rate will surely get high. So a professional can help you in this case.
If you make errors or don’t give priority to your site design or make subtle mistakes in the design then your visitors won’t think your website is a good one or trustworthy. And in this way, they may lose attention to your brand. As there are so many options available so they will not need too much time to judge what they need. So when they visit your website it’s your turn to let them know that they have come to the right place.
Hiring a professional may seem like a costly investment at the beginning but the likelihood of success it can offer outweighs the primary cost. It’s not only about your website but it improves your customer satisfaction too.
