Using a professional web development company means you are not alone

You are not aloneAre you in need of a new website? Perhaps you want a website built entirely from scratch, or maybe you want to replace your existing one. If so, you are probably looking around for the most cost effective solution to get your new website up and running.

You may have seen adverts inviting you to build your website online using a web based design package. This seems simple, as you just create your website by filling in a few forms. It also appears to be cheap, because they advertise that it will only cost you £9.99 per month. In fact, when you see one of these adverts and you want to set up a website, you probably think that it is too good to be true. 

Well, that’s because it probably is. Although it might seem cheap initially, it will probably cost you more money in the long run. Why? Because all that money gets you is your software. You are then left completely on your own to do it yourself.

Many web based design packages don't come with any support. When things go wrong, and you are stuck and don’t know what to do, you suddenly find that you have paid your money and you don’t get any support for that. There is nobody at the end of the phone that you can speak with, and nobody to respond to your emails. You just have to struggle and potentially cannot find a way out of the hole.

So, you might have paid what appears to be a low amount at first, but it is money wasted if you end up getting nowhere, and having to pay out again by getting somebody to help you, or by scrapping the whole thing and starting over with a professional web development company.

A professional web development company will be there to provide support for you and your website at all times. They will be at the end of the phone if there is an issue or a problem. It is also worth remembering that when you use a web based design package, you don’t own the website. Therefore, if you stop paying money, your website disappears and you can’t move it to anywhere else.

In terms of the design of your website you also have little or no control as you are heavily restricted by the pre-made templates which might be used by thousands of other companies. However, a professional web design company will design a website to suit your needs.

A professional web development company offers something completely different from web based design packages – the professional web development company does everything for their clients to build a functional website that meets their clients specific needs and most importantly, is there for them if things go wrong.

Remember, your company’s website is your shop window to the world. Do you really want to risk something so fundamental to your business by using cheap web design software?
