Many small business owners prefer to avoid the hassle and cost of setting up a completely bespoke website and opt instead for one of the drag-and-drop, template-based website building services like Wix, SquareSpace or Wordpress (there are others, but these are the most popular). These services can be great because they offer a choice of pre-designed templates and the ability to drag-and-drop page elements to build your own website without any technical knowledge of coding or web design.
There are significant pros and cons with this method of building a website. And because they tend to charge a monthly subscription fee, although they can seem cheaper than paying a web designer at first, over time they often eventually prove to be more expensive than paying a web designer a fixed, one-off fee for a bespoke design.
And because these services are often based on users selecting from a fixed range of pre-designed templates, your DIY website will often look very similar to a lot of other websites out there!
Building an effective and sucessful business website can be a tricky and fiddly business, so although Wix and Squarespace are meant to be easy to use, it's still easy to get stuck and need expert help, so I do offer technical support for any Wix, SquareSpace or Wordpress website owners who need help with the fiddlier bits.
When I have found it necessary to contact Steve for help his response is almost immediate and he will confirm as soon as the task has been completed. I am completely happy with the work Steve have carried out to date - I would highly recommend him. I will continue to liaise with Steve for the foreseeable future.Denise Renna, Saint David's House
