Getting your website built by a professional web designer can be expensive. So it is understandable that you want to save money by doing it yourself. Moreover, with so many web builders available, building your website may seem easy. But trust us when we say that a quality website requires more than a drag-and-drop template.
Moreover, if you consider your website as a means of marketing to grow your business, you will find it worthwhile to hire a professional web development company like Alpha BPO NL (yeah, that’s us) to create a quality website for you.
Reasons Why You Should Pay an Expert Instead of Building It Yourself
User Interface Is Important
Creating your website seems like an exciting prospect, and you may already have a few ideas. But chances are that you have not given enough thought to the user interface of your website. A good user interface helps visitors to interact with your site easily and quickly. However, if your site fails to comply with basic usability principles, it can lead to higher bounce rates, fewer conversions, and loss of brand value. Something a small business can’t afford. It’s also important to consider page load time, as most visitors will leave a page if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.
Professional web design services like ours understand that your websites play a major role in driving and retaining traffic. And that’s why we strive to create a site with an intuitive design, user-friendly navigation structure, effective visual hierarchy, and excellent page loading speed.
Limitations on Customized Design Layout
When building your website from scratch, you may have certain design requirements that work well for your business. But DIY site builders offer limited customization options, and the most basic design package limits you on templates, graphics, and fonts. Moreover, it lacks the aesthetic appeal and interactive features you need for your website to stand out. For additional features to be added, you will have to upgrade to the premium plan, and even then, you may need more customization options.
On the other hand, a custom-designed website from Alpha BPO NL will have everything tailored to your preferences and feature all the necessary components you want. Moreover, the aesthetic appeal of our design will bring more customers to your page.
Your SEO Will Suffer
Once you have created your website, the next step is to make sure it appears on search results. Search Engine Optimization is crucial for your website’s success, and it can’t be done with a DIY website. Most free website builders support basic and generic SEO practices, and customizing the code to suit your desired SEO goals is impossible. With these limitations, it will be difficult to make your website SEO-friendly, which can result in a significant decline in search engine rankings.
In contrast, Alpha BPO NL offers specialized SEO services and has a team of marketers who work on your website throughout the design stage to ensure that your site is optimized for maximum organic traffic.

Lacks Technical Support
You may be under the illusion that a DIY website builder is ‘easy to use’. All you need to do is drag and drop some elements, click a few buttons, and add a few lines of content, and you’re good to go. But unfortunately, that is not how it works.
When you work with DIY builders, you either get to build something very simple but limited, or you get stuck in technicalities and find yourself needing a technical team to help you out.
By paying for professional web development services, you are relieving yourself of all technical issues that can arise while creating a website. All you need to do is give your ideas, preferences, and requirements to the team, and they’ll bring them to life. Plus, they can provide you with technical support whenever needed.
Cost You High in the Long Run
When you approach a web development company for a quote, you may find the price high. However, you must understand that when someone else is creating your website for you, there are several factors involved and time-consuming tasks like custom designing, coding from scratch, setting up hosting and domains, etc., which seem small but can add up quickly.
On the other hand, DIY plans are much cheaper, at least initially. But as you begin adding new features, the cost can quickly escalate. Plus, these page builders require you to pay this monthly amount till the time you wish to use the feature.
Another problem with monthly paid services is that you don’t own your website; as soon as you stop paying for the service, your website will disappear. Moreover, you do not get the option to move your site to another hosting platform.
So when you add up all the costs and issues, it’s obvious that paying for web services is much more cost-effective in the long run. Not only do you pay one-time for the website, but you also get professional consultation on your project and flawless execution.
We all agree with the old saying, “time is money.” However, one thing is certain when you opt for a DIY website builder: it will consume your time and energy. You have to get familiar with the software, learn how to use it efficiently, take care of user experience, and ensure all the technical aspects are in place, such as security, SEO, hosting, etc.
The list goes on and on. You can spend days just trying to figure out how to design your website the way you want it, but there’s no guarantee that it will look as attractive and professional as you think.
When you hire a web development agency, your time is freed up. You can leave the entire website planning and designing to the professionals and focus on other aspects of running your business.
