There has been a shift for some towards do-it-yourself web builders. The idea is that you can avoid the costs associated with hiring a professional website developer, and have the same results by using software known as a web builder to do it yourself.
First of all, here are some advantages to using a web builder to do it yourself.
Sounds perfect, right? Well let's look a bit closer. There are also many disadvantages to using a web builder.
Now let's take a look at the pros and cons of hiring a professional website developer. This is a good time to define just what that is. In recent years, do-it-yourselfers have discovered Wordpress and have opened "Website Development" businesses creating sites using Wordpress. Wordpress is nothing more than another site builder, one intended for the do-it-yourselfer. If you are paying for professional website creation, make sure your developer is not merely generating a Wordpress site, but actually works with code to create a website customized to your needs. Wordpress relies on databases, and it is a cumbersome way to handle website page requests. Html is faster, more easily recognized by Google, and by the countless browsers out there on phones, tablets, desktops, and other devices.
Advantages to using an HTML professional to develop a website.
We've all heard the old line, "You get what you pay for" and it is generally true in Website Development. You can shop around though, but look at the developer's portfolio and make sure they are not using a web builder to create websites for their customers.
Here at Webberman, we never use software to create websites. We may use professional HTML templates and the CSS and JS scripts that accompany them, and this is a method that assures you are only getting the best in a custom website, created to your specifications, and at reasonable cost.
