Does your company need its own website? Are you wondering if you can do it yourself? We advise when the better option will be to hire professionals – a web development company.
Commissioning specialists to create websites
Probably many business owners wonder if trusting a professional company to create a website is profitable. Wouldn’t it be better to use a free website builder and build a website yourself? You can indeed save a little on such a solution, but this is only deceptive appearances. However, it turns out that this solution can do more harm than good in the long run.
At first, creating a website yourself does not seem to be a cosmically tricky task. All you need is access to a simple editor or CMS system to create a minimalist website in minutes. After paying for the domain and hosting, you can start your website right away. The problem is that free solutions often offer limited possibilities. The default templates look unprofessional, the website is also not fully functional and not flexible.
By creating a website for free or for half free, we cannot protect it well against external attacks. The consequence of such reckless savings may be the low level of security of the website. Another critical issue is the failure rate – if a website is created by someone who has no idea about HTML codes or technical aspects related to, e.g., performance, the website will not serve well. Over time, it will work slower and slower, preventing potential customers from using it – fixes, updates, and maybe even a new site from scratch will be required. As you can see, the savings, in this case, are only apparent.
When is it worth hiring a website development company?
If you have high requirements for a website, a much better solution is to work with a professional website development company. An agency or a freelancer will create a website for you that will be functional, fast, flexible – tailored to your needs.
How much does it cost to implement a website?
Depending on the size of your company’s website and what will be on it, the cost can be around $ 5,000-6,000 per page with ten screens designed by you.
If the website serves only as a business card, the costs will not be high. However, if you want to integrate your website with Google Maps, e-shop, and application and need a professional graphic design, each element will increase the price. So think carefully about your needs and your budget.
How to choose a web development company that will create a website for you?
Much more important than the price are customer recommendations and projects that the company has already completed and can view. Experience on the market and the quality of contact are also significant. If the web development company is not available by phone, and replies to email every few days, do not expect successful cooperation.
So choose a web development company that:
- has many positive references and opinions;
- has been on the market for some time;
- provides you with fast and trouble-free contact
- will propose additional services, e.g., free corrections, a consultancy in the field of internet advertising, positioning or creating content for the website (content marketing) in a package, at a lower price;
- will guarantee technical support after the completion of the project.
