Building and managing your own website

Lots of small businesses are building and managing their own websites today using a free or paid website builder. No coding knowledge is required, so anyone can do this.

But why not pay a professional website designer to build and manage the website for you? The answer of course is they don’t want to pay for this service when they can do it themselves. I get that.

People say to me, I paid for my website but then I had to pay every time I wanted it updating. This is why I now use a website builder. Ok I sometimes get into difficulty and then have to pay someone to sort it out for me, but on the whole my website looks ok.

I say, so It looks ok but how does it perform? This is when people start to understand that there is much more to web design than just looks.

My next question is, how much time do you spend updating your website?

The answer is usually, well I have to keep updating the plugins it uses and obviously keep on top of all the security updates, then make my own updates. I don’t always have time during the week so I usually do this at the weekend.

So I ask, how much is you time worth and do you like working weekends?

It soon becomes apparent that it makes perfect sense to outsource this work because it can be done so much better for so much less.

Our websites are fully managed, allowing you to concentrate on running your business.

So you can have a professionally built website, hosting, SSL certificate, daily off-site backups and 30 minutes per month of free site updates.

Responsive websites built with love, creativity and innovation. Affordable, quality websites search engines adore.
