How to choose the best website builder
Choosing how to build your website is a big decision. It can have a direct impact on things like:
- How people perceive your business
- The time you spend overseeing your site
- If you have to pay for additional services and integrations
- Your ability to grow and scale
Website builders are a perfect solution for individuals, entrepreneurs, and small businesses to start a website without hiring a developer. The right solution will increase your growth potential, connect you to a wider audience, reduce marketing costs, and help you save time on admin tasks.
To determine if one of the web builders, services, or agencies below is right for you, consider these questions.
Who will design and maintain your website?
Every platform is different, and the right fit depends on your technical experience, interest in web design, and patience using a drag-and-drop builder. If you use a solution where your site is designed for you, who will handle the maintenance when you need to make updates?
Do you want a tool where you can log in and make changes yourself, with customer support readily available, or do you plan to outsource all design changes to a professional web designer? Some platforms offer more than one way to build and update your site.
What’s your budget?
A website builder is often more cost-effective than hiring a designer and developer to spend months customizing your site. You can even find basic website packages at no charge, but to launch a professional-quality website on a custom domain, you’ll have to pay a monthly fee.
The cost of your website will depend on design quality, customization, and add-on services like hosting, content creation, and search engine optimization.
What’s the purpose of your site?
Many platforms are designed for specific industries, ecommerce, portfolios, or professional services, while others are one-size-fits-all. The right website solution for you depends on the type of site or the functionality you need, like a blog, appointment scheduling, online store, social media buttons, or live chat.
What do you want your website to look like?
Most website builders offer you the flexibility to customize your site, but many are limited and tied to templates. If you’re looking for a custom layout or unique design you haven’t seen before, many platforms will be too restrictive.
Working with a web developer is the only way to get a completely original site, but many platforms out there will offer you enough customization that you’ll stand out online and build your own brand identity.
