5 Reasons to Avoid a Website Builder

Does your website stand out from the crowd? How well does your site compete against others?

With more than 200 million websites around today, you need to ensure that your website stays doesn’t get left behind. You need a design that pushes you above the competition.

Unfortunately, a lot of small businesses make the mistake of using a free site builder. They end up with amateur-looking websites that customers can’t take seriously.

Don’t go down that route. Hire experts to do the job for you.

No matter what you do, ensure that you avoid using a website builder to accomplish this. Here are five reasons why:

1. Lack of Uniqueness

When you use free website creators, you run the risk of producing a website that looks similar to others made with the same tool. These providers often have hundreds of templates available for use. Always remember that these creators have at least a million users.

Your business deserves its own identity and branding. Follow current web design trends without being an exact clone. Don’t skimp on it with website builders.

2. Limited Optimization

Depending on whether you use Wix or Weebly, the amount of SEO you get will vary. Regardless, you can never achieve the same amount of SEO provided by websites designed by professionals.

Always remember that Google is the biggest search engine with more than 90% of the market share. If your website can’t have the right optimization, your website becomes obscure and less visible.

3. Poor Analytics

A free website often won’t give you the access to even the most basic analytics. They often ask you to upgrade to see the amount of traffic your website receives. In most cases, the statistics you see aren’t comprehensive and based on outdated algorithm methods.

Choose professionals to get access to a team of experts. Reputable ones have the latest tools for analytics to assess your website’s performance as a whole. It improves your bounce rates and spot areas of improvements.

4. Ads and Bad URLs

On free websites, your homepage URL will contain the free tools’ domain name in some way or another. Unless you upgrade to a premium package, your website will look unprofessional. Aside from that, they will most likely pepper your website with ads, making your business look less serious.

5. Lack of Professional Advice

This is the biggest disadvantage of free website builders. Of course, using these tools can net you some basic technical support if you’re lucky enough. Getting experts to do the job for you means you get great advice from people with the right knowledge and experience in branding and internet marketing.
