It’s tempting to choose a DIY website with sites like Wix or Squarespace, or to hire your neighbor’s nephew who builds websites in his free time. These options are usually cheaper than hiring a marketing agency, but don’t forget the phrase, “You get what you pay for.”
Here are 5 reasons to consider hiring an agency rather than building a website on your own.
Know who you’re working with.
Problem with your website? With a template site from brands like Wix or Squarespace, you’ll be given a ticket number while you wait for your issue to be resolved. With an agency, you’ll have a name, email, and number you can contact to get help from someone who already knows the ins and outs of your business and your website.
A more personalized approach.
There are plenty of pretty web and content templates out there, but nothing can beat a design that’s created solely with your business in mind. An agency will take the time to get to know you and your business, and create something that fits your vision and your needs perfectly.
Have an entire team behind you.
The biggest benefit of hiring an agency is the agency itself. At Nu expression, our entire team is dedicated to helping you succeed. We’re constantly working to expand our skills and improve what we do so we can provide the very best for our clients. Can you say that of Wix, another DIY site, or your neighbor’s nephew? Nope.
Get the expertise you need to get results.
It’s easy to hop online and build your own website, but what happens next? No matter how good it looks, a website is useless if it doesn’t get found by the right people.
It’s about more than the design.
Search engine optimization, user experience, marketing, and ecommerce...no matter what your business is, you need a lot more than a good looking website. An agency will be able to take your website to the next level with all of these features and more.
