The design of your website can have a huge impact on the way your site works from all angles – from getting new customers interested in your products or services, through to encouraging those visitors to make a purchase. It is so important that your site works well, looks good and operates effectively so more people can buy your things.
You should consider carefully how you will make your website. You have two main options: create a website by yourself, using a web builder such as Wix, Weebly or Go Daddy. You could create a basic website using any of these basic DIY builders. The other option is to take on the services of a professional web designer or agency. This is a great choice for businesses, who require more than just a single page site.
The costs are often a deciding factor when it comes to web design. Obviously, the more complex your site is, or the more customised programming is required, the more expensive your build will be. Doing a site yourself is a lot cheaper, however, there are downsides. Whilst the site will probably end up looking okay, the function of a DIY site is often lacking. There are limited ways to edit your site and SEO is often very difficult!
