Why You Should Hire a Web Designer
There are lots of do-it-yourself web builders out there, and it is tempting to just design your website – you know what you want, so why not just do it yourself? However, there are a few reasons why hiring a web designer would, in the long run, save you time, money, and your sanity! Fusion Group USA, with offices in Grand Junction, Colorado and Phoenix, Arizona staffs talented, professional web designers and has affordable web design packages to offer. But we can’t offer our services until we let you know exactly why you should hire Fusion Group for your web design. Here are a few reasons you should hire us:
- Did you go to school for website design or website development?
Probably not. Let’s say you own a home building/contracting business. You are an expert in your field, and you’ve probably spent years developing your talent and your business – not years studying design and website coding. So, if you decide to build your own site, you’ll probably spend hours achingly trying to decide on your design, writing your own content, and uploading images. What if it doesn’t look good? What if it doesn’t show up properly? What if people can’t find it on Google or Yahoo or Bing or….or…..? The list goes on. Do you have time to run your business and spend countless hours building a site that may not even be found by potential customers? I’m going to say probably not.
- Do you want to spend hundreds of dollars on a site that may eventually need to be rebuilt?
Web builders can be great, if you decide to stay with their hosting service. Rean discusses this issue in a blog on Hongkiat entitled, “Should You Hire a Web Designer Or Use a Web Builder?” Let’s say your site is great for a year, and you decide you want to transfer to a different host. Using web builders like Wix or Weebly will either mean that you will lose some of your features or you will lose everything. Recreating your site will then take more time and money. If you hire a web designer, you won’t even have to think about this – your site could easily be transferred without the pain of starting from scratch.
- Let’s talk dollar bills…
With web builders, you typically have to pay a monthly subscription, plus whatever add-ons you want that aren’t included in the subscription. Not to mention potentially losing everything once you stop paying or try to transfer to a different host server (I can see the dollar bills adding up here…). If you hire Fusion Group USA, you pay an initial web build fee and then annual hosting. For example, you want a basic site with between 1-4 pages, a Contact Us form, some basic SEO, and content writing assistance. It’ll cost you between $750 – $999 setup and basic hosting will be around $10 a month.
Now, this may seem like a lot up front, but what are you gaining? Keyword-rich content that will ensure your site is organically found, professional and custom design that will be eye-catching and attractive to potential customers, a dedicated account representative that will follow up with you regularly and check for updates, and time. That’s right – time that you WON’T have to spend agonizing over creating your own site from scratch. Oh yeah, and you own the site. It’s yours to with what you want!
So, overall it’s really to your benefit as a busy business owner to hire a professional, talented, and creative web designer. Working with Fusion Group USA allows you to have a say in the creative process, but means that you don’t have to spend your time agonizing over the details. Plus, you get a great site when the process is over and it’s all yours! Fusion Group USA also ensures that with well-written content and proper coding, that your site will be found by potential customers. We take the worry and the hassle out of web design.
