Unfortunately, too many people think that simply putting together a basic website themselves will be enough to build a long line of customers beating a path to their door.
If only it was that simple!
Like lots of other jobs, web design is something best left to the professionals. Here are a few reasons why web design is best left to the experts.
Responsive design is key
When Google ranks websites in its algorithm, one of the fundamental metrics it uses is mobile responsiveness – does your website work on mobile as well as it does on a computer? Your website and the images should automatically configure to the screen size it is being viewed on. If it doesn’t, this will harm your performance in the search engines, meaning nobody will be able to find you on the internet, never mind buy from you! At Healy Web Design, mobile responsiveness for your website comes as standard.
Understanding search engines
Websites are ranked on Google according to a lot of different factors such as content, relevance, search intent, loading speed, responsiveness etc. To a lot of people, these terms mean absolutely nothing but to a professional web designer, they mean a lot! By using a professional web designer, these elements will all be considered.
Your design has to represent you
If you build your own website, you’ll almost certainly be using a template design, but that may not be the best choice for your business. With Healy Web Design your business needs will be put front and centre, so you’ll be given a bespoke web design that will suit your business and requirements in the best way possible.
To sum up
It may be tempting to go it alone, but what feels like a cost-saving measure at the start could have a huge impact on your business down the line. Speak to Healy Web Design and see how we can help.
