Why Free Websites Cost You
In our work here at Newman Web Solutions we design websites for all kinds of businesses and professionals – from life coaches to social media marketers to E-commerce retailers, and more. Many times these customers find us after they’ve had a disastrous experience.
They were trying to build a website themselves with one of those “freebie” sites (remember, you get what you pay for!), or they had hired a website designer who only speaks “website”, not English, and were lost in a dark forest of web lingo without a clue. And their website looked awful to boot!
All that wasted money elsewhere because the original website designer wasn’t able to translate what the customer wanted into a beautiful website design. And the “free”sites ended up costing a lot of time with little good result.
One of our clients was a “rescue” from a disaster, and now her website looks beautiful, is fully functional, and is generating income for her. She is thrilled that we took a lemon and made a lovely lemon sorbet for her.
When you hire us as your website designer, we will ask you:
What type of business you have
For a general idea of what style you are looking for
For a few other websites that you’ve seen that look like what you would want
The team at Newman Web Solutions also gives you examples of the themes (themes are website design styles) that we have in-house and own, as well as advising you on other available themes for purchase. There is a wide variety of themes to choose from, and we are confident you’ll find a design appropriate for your business and your style.
When you have your own website built, rather than buying a generic template or using a freebie website, it can be customized for your exact needs. With a generic website design, you are limited to whatever modules the template offers – and those modules may not be what you need for your business! Or they are too difficult to figure out and you end up with a mess because you don’t know what you are doing. You are not a website designer, you are a business owner.
Do you really want your business represented by some off-the-rack website template that you have cobbled together as best as your inexperienced self could do? No, you really don’t.
Your business is represented online on the World Wide Web (yes, it’s global, remember) by your website. You’ve invested enormous amounts of time, money, sweat, and tears into your business. Why would you then put up a cheap and ugly website to represent your “baby”? That’s penny wise and pound foolish. A cheap or free website reflects badly on your business, so avoid falling into that trap.
Newman Web Solutions are extraordinary website designers who speak “human”. We can translate what you are expressing into the perfect website for your needs and wants. And we do it in a very affordable way, so you won’t break the bank.
Having a great website representing your business online is your 24/7 marketing tool to showcase your company and to help generate revenues for you. When you’re ready for a real website or a redesign, contact us for a free consultation. Your online audience awaits.
