Modern platforms have made it possible to manage websites with less technical knowledge than ever before. This reality has been great news for marketers, content contributors, and business development executives alike, allowing for efficient updates and powerful functionality.
Even still, there are plenty of reasons to partner with a website designer/developer who will support you along the way. Here are five.
The Five Reasons
1. You need more time to focus on what you do best
Even though a Google search can lead you to just about any answer, we’re guessing you didn’t get into your career to dig into code or troubleshoot website issues. A technical expert has the know-how and time to build, fix, and maintain your site—letting you focus on your job.
2. You require custom design and functionality
We’ve seen it over and over: website templates that look beautiful with demo content and then fall apart with the real stuff. On top of this, the backend tools built in to do-it-yourself platforms often either lead you down a path of compromises or provide way too much flexibility, making for a frustrating experience. A qualified developer can build exactly what you have in mind on both the front and back end, and then empower you to make changes with ease.
3. You want peace of mind
The right partner has systems in place to keep your content, code, and CMS software backed up, secure, and up-to-date. If you’re ready to not give those details another thought, it’s time to delegate.
4. You value personalized support over the long term
Something’s lost when you’re talking with a different support agent on every call. Find yourself a partner who will connect you with a real developer who will not only remember your name, but also the history of your website and how you personally got to today.
5. You feel overwhelmed by all of the ways you could use your site and need direction
We know that everyone in your organization has a different vision for what your website should do. How can you distill these ideas down to specific features targeted at specific visitors? Sometimes the best way to find where your business objectives and your visitors’ desires align is through some fresh, outside perspective.
