WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT IN A WEB COMPANY OR FREELANCER.
Perhaps the easiest way to create a website is to contact third-party artists. One has only to choose where to develop the site, pay a certain amount of money and be in touch, when necessary, to discuss pressing issues regarding the project. The main advantages of this method of creating a website in a web company is:
Selection of the type of site that is most suitable for your activity;
Time-saving. The project is handled by a team of specialist developers. You do not need to delve into the technical nuances of site development, all responsibility for the project lies with the executor;
Professional approach. The developed site will meet your needs, have a selling structure, a unique design, the necessary functionality. In addition, at the first stage of site development, marketing analysis is carried out, so the resource meets the needs of the target audience as much as possible;
Maximum compliance with your requirements. As a result of cooperation, you will see just such a project that you imagined.
Of course, one cannot fail to say about the disadvantages of creating a website in a web studio. Firstly, it is expensive. Good sites in really good web companies cost thousands of hryvnias and this is only for work. Add to the sum the cost of domain rental, hosting, and promotion. Secondly, among a wide selection of performers, it’s quite difficult to find professionals, because each competing web company speaks of its high professionalism, it’s quite difficult to understand the level of development of developers, especially for an unprepared person.
Now about freelancers. You can create your website quite cheaply, you just need to contact a freelancer. Fortunately, their choice is enormous. However, contacting a freelancer entails great risks. For example, the development of a low-quality site. Yes, it can have an ideal design, as you wanted, and even be convenient in terms of usability. But errors can be in technical setup, site structure, internal optimization. This leads to big risks: spend money and stay with nothing.
CREATE YOUR SITE USING THE ONLINE BUILDER.
There are more than a dozen online designers. The most popular: Wix, Ucoz, Setup. The leading services of online designers suggest a number of advantages: a huge selection of designs for every taste, wide functionality, good indexing by search engines, the Wix designer, for example, allows you to use HTML5 and develop a site on Flash. Each service offers individual benefits. But also the disadvantages. For example, the online designer Ucoz “requires” the placement of its banner, which is posted on the site for 20 seconds. Would you like to clean? Pay 3 dollars a month. Want to remove ads on a site created using Wix? Pay the money. Want to transfer your site from hosting Setup to another? Open your wallet.
Free online designers are not so free. And the creation of a site with their help is far from suitable for all purposes. For example, for large online stores, this option is not suitable due to a lack of functionality. But if you plan to create your website as a startup, take a look at the online designer.
BUY A READY SITE ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE.
And another good option to create your own site is to buy it ready. You will be able to save time, quickly recover costs due to high popularity and visits to the resource, quickly get into the TOP due to the age of the domain and the trust of search engines in it.
But this option also involves risks. Firstly, the site can be technically complex or contain errors that you don’t know about. You will have to spend time searching for problems, trying to solve them yourself or contacting specialists, spending money.
Secondly, it is quite possible to become a victim of deception. There are frequent cases when owners of ready-made sites increase the number of visits by placing contextual advertising and temporary links. After the sale, such sites stop moving and exit TOP, and you lose customers.
CREATING A SITE YOURSELF.
The last option – do-it-yourself website development. It’s worth saying right away that the option is very laborious. At a minimum, you need to know the programming languages, markup, principles of working with editors, design development, functionality, the basics of promotion, to be able to select a memorable domain name, high-quality hosting and transfer a website to it, and much more. As a maximum, you need to understand how to transfer all knowledge to practice. Professional developers learn and constantly develop over the years. Therefore, if you do not want to learn for a long time the entire knowledge base, we do not recommend using this option.
If you still want to master this niche, we wish you good luck. It remains only to recommend not developing a site for sales until you are completely confident in your abilities. Otherwise, the site will “burn through”, and the time spent will not be returned. If, however, master the entire knowledge base, then you will be able to significantly save time and money.
So, we have revealed the main opportunities to make your site. Analyze the advantages and disadvantages and make your choice. We wish you success!
