How’s that DIY Site?

If you’re thinking about building and managing your own website, you may want to reconsider. Outside of the #1 challenge of you just being too busy there are real concerns you don't want to discover half way in.

✏️ Limited Functionality

DIY website builders offer limited functionality, meaning you won’t have full control over your site.

✏️ Search Engine Optimization

If you want to achieve any visibility on Google, it’s best to steer clear of DIY websites. They generally lack the SEO elements you will need and you could end up paying much more down the road hiring someone to fix it.

✏️ Security Vulnerabilities

Do you know how to spot, and resolve, security vulnerabilities on a website? For the average business owner, the answer is no — and that’s okay.

✏️ DIY Websites are Non-Responsive

DIY websites lack a responsive design, meaning they don’t display or otherwise function properly on mobile devices. A responsive web design uses CSS3 media queries and proportion grids to adjust the visual elements based on the user’s device. When a visitor accesses the website on a mobile device, it scales down the site’s design appropriately. Responsive web design is the only configuration recommended by Google for creating a smartphone-optimized website.
