Other Options

Website editor

WordPress

Launched in 2003 as a blogging tool, many assume WordPress is still the go-to platform for a business website. I could give you a whole host of technical reasons why WordPress should be avoided. But a big plus for WordPress is the ability for owners to manage and upload their website content.

Verdict: WordPress has had its day. It produces slow websites, poor code and is regularly hacked. There are much better options available in 2019.

Website editor

Self-build websites

Its unlikely that a 'self-build' will give your business a credible appearance. These drag-n-drop website builders also generate very poor back-end code which can lead to performance issues or errors. Can you afford to spend many frustrating days away from your core business role trying to do it yourself?

Verdict: Great for a hobby project, but unless you know what you're doing, your website will fail miserably in search results.

website design agency

Pro Design Agency

There will be a whole team of 'creatives' working on your project, each bringing their own specialisms to the different stages of the project design and build. Granted, you'll get a fantastic website, but the fee will be eye watering. These companies are really best suited to corporate organisations who require specialist website functionality.

Verdict: If money is no object, you'll get a fantastic website with all the bells and whistles.

websites built by a national company

Franchise / Network

Some web design companies form part of a national network or franchise model. Some flood the internet with a website for every town, giving the impression of being local to you, but the reality can be quite different. You'll liaise with a sales agent, as the people building the websites are likely to be a very long distance away.

Verdict: You'll get an acceptable standard template website, but you'll pay a hefty annual subscription for the life of your website.
