Creating a quality website is crucial when marketing/promoting your business and your brand.
Many small business’s use a “free” website template or a content management system. They soon find that it is not as easy as they were sold to believe. Be careful when making the decision for your first website or re-designing your current website. Most business’s find that they can save a great deal of money and time by hiring a professional website design agency versus a do it yourself plan.
I am sure you have seen and heard the advertisements for free websites, well I am here to tell you that I have talked with many business owners that have firsthand experience with such companies. The common message I hear is “They tried to up sell us on marketing packages that we did not need or that did not work.” When you try to cancel your website they are told that they don’t own the domain or content. Don’t fall into this trap, spend some time talking with other business owners and website agencies to learn about all the pros and cons of each type of website.
If you talk with a good website agency, they can explain the positive and negatives with each type of design package, so that you can make an educated decision. The great website design agencies will not charge for your initial consultation because they have confidence in their products and services.
