Forget website builders, you need a built-for-you website service to maximise your profits

Balancing your time is no easy task. You’ll no doubt feel like you’ve got a hundred and one things to do on your project list and you can quickly become overwhelmed.

If you’re already selling and supporting clients with websites, or are looking to do so, you need to be as efficient as possible. So, you need a platform that not only allows time to find new business opportunities but to also ensure any existing clients receive the amazing service your skill set provides. 

We’re going to take you through the disadvantages of using a web builder and why a built-for-you website service will help you to maximise your profits…

The disadvantages of web builders

There’s no denying that the likes of Squarespace, Wix, Weebly and so on have plenty of advantages for putting together a customisable website… but where they fall short causes issues…

No web agency support 

If you need support when using a web building service you’ll have to wait for it. In most cases you’re either directed to a support thread, sometimes lucky enough to get on live chat or if you’re even luckier… a phone call. 

However, you will not be speaking with someone who has web agency experience. More often than not your query will have to be dealt with through generating a ‘ticket’ and then it’s a waiting game for when their support team can handle your request – you’ll be eating into your time which could have been better spent elsewhere. 

You have to spend time building your site

No matter your experience in websites everything takes time. We’ve all been there… jump on a building platform, spend ages trying to decide on a theme and then more time to work out how to build up the pages from there – adding new content blocks and features not quite looking how you thought they would. 

Once you’ve finally reached the stage of being able to populate the site you’ll typically run in to some limitations… especially on free or cheap themes.

No bespoke solutions are available

Your client’s website needs to grow as their business does and there’s only so much a web builder can offer before it reaches the peak of its capabilities. 

When you get to that position, with new requests coming in from your client that you can’t actually fulfil, the last thing you want to have to tell them is they need to go elsewhere to receive the service they are looking for. 

It’s a cold experience

Doing everything on your own makes for a cold experience. No doubt there are some ‘handy’ articles for tips and advice, but once you’ve eventually got everything in place with a web builder that’s pretty much where you’re left.

You need to read this…👇 All the barriers as to why selling websites and growing a profitable business is difficult are no more!
