Can’t Code? Consider Using a Website Creator to Make the Process of Designing Your Website Easier
Here’s something you already know: there are tons of different sites on the internet. But if your site needs to be interactive and accept payments from customers, it’s a bit trickier than displaying information, as many pages do. So how are you going to pull it off? With code, of course.
Time vs. Money
To create a great custom website, there are two obvious options: do it yourself, or pay someone else. The former involves time, while the latter requires money (maybe a lot of it).
If you’re highly motivated, you could certainly teach yourself to code. The caveat here is that even if you get it down in several weeks, is that still enough to build a great-looking, functional website on your own? If it really weren’t, few would be surprised.
Most people who teach themselves the more complex concepts quickly have prior background in tech. And despite how useful a skill it is, most schools still don’t teach it, making it something for people who are inherently adept at independent learning.
Paying someone else to build your website essentially ties you to that person, as well as the rate you must pay them. You can definitely profit from their expertise when they turn out a fast, beautiful, totally interactive site, but from that moment forward you will depend on a web design pro to maintain and update it.
You’re giving up control, which isn’t an easy thing to do when your business is at stake.
As most of us can attest to, time and money are similar sacrifices. That’s why many business owners, artists, bloggers, and more have chosen a third option.
The Third Way
There is a way to save both time and money, with little compromise from your website wish list. Using a website creator can cover the web necessities (payment, layout, style, etc.) without outside hiring.
In most cases, you drag and drop your features, upload high-quality images from your computer, or simply select the page options you need. It’s professional expertise optimised for your budget and lifestyle.
And website creators make updates and changes super simple. You log on whenever you need to and make the change. No more calling up a designer after an urgent 3 a.m. realization, or trying to get changes made on holidays, when traffic ramps up but professionals take off.
When inspiration hits, it’s time to act. Effortlessly change your color scheme or add new product details as soon as the idea emerges. If you decide you want to pare down your page for minimalist appeal, you can accomplish this in as little as an hour.
The streamlined capabilities of website creators make errors less likely to occur, and keeps the nuts and bolts of your page in one place, so you’re not jumping from program to program to cobble your site together. Add in the fact that bare-bones sites are often free, with low fees for premium features, and the choice is clear. With a website creator, you can have your site up and running by tomorrow.
With ample experience in content writing and research analysis, I believe that they are ‘One Single Unit’. I enjoy bringing them both together in order to give a fine definition, meaning to the content created. I enjoy writing articles, website content, social media content, email templates, press releases, white papers, news articles etc.
