When it comes to building your website you have two main choices. The first is to use a pre-made setup website builder. The most common ones include WordPress, Wix & Squarespace. The second option is to have a website developer build one from the ground up. Today we are going to look at why you should always go down the developer route. Website builders are great if you want a basic website for purposes such as blogging. They are also great for those who want to build the website themselves but have little programming experience. The big downside, however, is that there is very little customisation possible. This can restrict how much you can make your website stand out from the crowd.
Adding that personal touch
A huge benefit of working with a website developer is that you are able to speak to someone in person. This means that you can, in much more detail, describe what you want the website to look like. This is opposed to using a website builder whereby you are restricted by how much it lets you customise your website. Hiring a developer also means you can have purpose-built features on your website. For example, if you are in the sector of serviced accommodation and need a customised booking form creating, they can do this for you. Website builders do come with a marketplace of plugins however these again leave you with very little room for personalisation.
A website developer can also help you to make changes after your website has gone live. Over time, just like fashion, the ideal website design always changes. And so when the trend does shift it’s important that you adapt as soon as possible. Having a developer on hand allows you to quickly adapt to the changes and not fall behind. Something that is key in any industry when you’re in business. The last point we’re going to make about why you should hire a website developer is that they can be there when things go wrong. A developer will have more than enough experience in debugging and knowing where to look for the cause a problem and how to fix it.
