Let’s face it, every business needs a website. The 21st century brings with it a number of things that businesses have to do and having a website is one of those things. It enables potential clients to learn about you, find out what you offer while keeping your branding consistent and let’s not forget about the potential to make additional sales.
However, many businesses are choosing to make the mistake of not creating a website at all and that could be hurting their business in many different ways. So, what we want to do is dispel the myths around having a business website, helping you to see the benefits of what Website as a Service (WaaS) can offer.
You Lack the Technical Know-How
We have all heard about web design companies creating websites with coding that looks nothing more than page after page of content that you cannot understand. This is true, creating websites in this way does require technical knowledge but this isn’t the only option when it comes to creating your own website.
What WaaS offers is the scope to get creative yourself. The entire idea behind WaaS is to provide you with the opportunity to build your own website, even if you don’t have any experience. Using pre-built templates, the complicated elements associated with web design have been done for you. This leaves you with the ability to use our drag and drop builder, helping you to shape your website into everything you want it to be. What’s more, if you find yourself facing challenges or problems, a dedicated team of designers and developers are on hand to provide their expert assistance.
It’s Going to Cost a Lot Of Money
We understand that businesses have budgets and not every business has the scope to use a professional service to have their website designed. As a benchmark, a reputable agency can charge anything from £2,000 to £5,000 or more to create a website. Choose a freelancer and you might make savings but the costs can still stretch to hundreds of pounds.
With WaaS, you will have an element of control over how much you spend because our price is just £49 +VAT per month and that includes hosting, design, support, security and reporting. This is a considerable saving from the amount you could spend if you went down the route of choosing to use an agency.
A Cheap Website Will Still Lead to Increased Costs
This is true in some instances but this is more likely to occur if you choose the wrong website builder. The main thing to consider when opting to use a website builder to create your own website is to choose a company that keeps everything transparent. You don’t want to be hit with hidden costs that push your budget beyond what you can afford. You require a solution that is both honest and transparent where the costs are fixed, helping you to gain a clear understanding of where you stand.
My Website Won’t Look Professional
This couldn’t be further from the truth. WaaS still includes high-quality web design, all of which has been completed beforehand, giving you a range of amazing templates to choose from. These templates can then be customised using the drag and drop functionality. This gives you control over the look and feel while the entire design and functionality of your website will still reflect that of a website created by a web design agency. With our website builder, you will never be truly stuck. Sure you might face some challenges but we have a team of designers on hand. This means that when you do face problems, they are ready to help!
What if I get stuck?
What makes us stand out from other website builders is the way in which we support our clients. We don’t take our time when you need us. We are proactive, responsive and fast-acting which means that your problems are solved quickly and efficiently.
So, it’s time to forget about the negative aspects of having a website built and turn your attention to the fact that you can have a website that looks professional at a fraction of the cost. The only difference when using WaaS is the simplicity of it all, the convenience and the ability to create a website that feels truly yours.
