Can you remember what it was like creating a website twenty or so years ago? In case you forgot, building an engaging website was a time-consuming collaboration among copywriters, developers, and project managers who required extensive coding knowledge. Making a few simple changes to the site was a frustratingly long process.
No coding required
Today, almost anyone can build a website without knowing how to code, thanks to a page builder plugin called Elementor. Its free version is perfect for beginners since it's so easy to use, and you can create your page and content layouts from scratch or select from the available ready-to-use templates and page designs.
Creating routine content that engages users typically correlates to higher seo ranking. The goal isn’t to just add new content to your website, but to make that content engaging for your site visitors. This doesn’t necessarily mean blogging, but blogging is a very effective and efficient “organic” method to achieve that favor from the search engine algorithms.
Why it is better to have a Web Agency build your site
DIY website builders advertise and display themselves as a simple, easy to use solution to get professional modern websites at low cost. While it's definitely a bonus to pay so little to get your website published and your business name out there, it comes at a cost. Your time.
Easier said than done
Building websites isn’t easy. The idea that you can purchase a $20/mo plan and have a site that just wows your visitors after an hour or two of tinkering is unrealistic. Even using DIY site builders, it can still take a professional web designer 40+ hours to get a finished product.
