Your Business Has Grown Up – Your Website Should Too

Pros and Cons of DIY (Do It Yourself) Website

DIY or Pro Website?


If you are the rare person who not only runs his own business, but also has the time to develop his own website, can write well, understands SEO, knows coding, can create eye-catching designs with professional graphics, and has a built-in flair for marketing, stop right here. This article is not for you.

For everyone else, ‘Time is money.’ And it’s just as true today as when Benjamin Franklin said it nearly 300 years ago.

No doubt about it, there are some great website builder programs out there, like Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace. They promise you’ll be up and running in an hour (!) and sometimes that’s true. If you can drag & drop, you can use a site builder program. The question is…will it pay off?

Remember, the completion of your website is not an automatic guarantee of success. Success comes from the number of visitors and paying customers the site brings to your door.

In a nutshell, the pros and cons of the DIY (Do It Yourself) site builder programs are…

  • Drag, drop & do it yourself
  • Inexpensive
  • Tools are included
  • No coding knowledge necessary
  • Fast

  • Features are limited
  • Up charges on some features
  • Limited templates
  • What you see is what you get
  • Metadata & SEO options are limited

They don’t tell you that websites, like automobiles, need routine maintenance and updating… so DIY folks, plan on the time and expense of that too. Additionally, if you decide to do it yourself with a site builder program and you go for their low-cost shared hosting, your site will be harder to find and slower to load. Viewers want speed.

The DIY programs may have been a great fit for you when your business was young, but now that you, your company, and the internet have grown up, isn’t it time to have a website that truly represents the powerhouse you have become…or want to be?
