Resuming 4 Reasons to Invest in Your Website (Instead of Going the “Free” Route) (Pt. 1), here, we will continue pointing out some of the primary reasons that paying to develop a website can be a far better option than doing it yourself for “free.”
More Reasons to Invest in Website Development
3 – To take advantage of the latest industry best practices.
Just as the Internet is continually evolving, so too are the algorithms used by search engines and the industry best practices when it comes to developing and maintaining websites. By trying to save some money upfront by using free website development options, you will effectively give up the value that professionals could bring to your website in terms of:
- Eye-catching designs, which can be far more visually appealing to users than DYI designs
- Optimized content and copy, which can keep users on your site longer than they otherwise would stay.
4 – To get and convert more business leads.
With “free websites,” you may end up getting what you paid for in terms of returns – that is to say, you may end up getting nothing more than an online page that doesn’t generate returns for you or your business.
Given the fact that a business’ website is often intended to develop a strong online presence for that business and, ideally, convert as many online users into new leads as possible, going the free route for your site can:
- Actually end up costing you new leads and new business, as free sites won’t be optimally positioned for success in search engines and/or won’t generally be as compelling to people online
- Be a misguided choice if you are serious about growing your business.
The Bottom Line: “Free” Websites Can Cost You Way More in the Long Run
The bottom line when it comes to the free website options versus paying professionals to develop and maintain websites is that:
- Free websites will never be as effective as those developed by experienced industry professionals.
- When you are willing to make a small investment upfront to develop an optimized website for your business, the returns can pay off exponentially in terms of the success of your website and the future growth of your business.
