At MFD we understand and recognise that running a business is hard work so building and maintaining a website should be the least of your worries. Business owners often turn to one of the many online DIY solutions available, these include the likes of Weebly, Wix, Squarespace, Go Daddy, One & One, Vistaprint and Moonfruit to name but a few in order to put something together themselves, quickly and easily.
We agree that this is a perfectly good ‘toe dip’ into the world of web design, and all the builders mentioned offer a quick solution to building a website. The problem lies in that whilst they offer easy to use web design tools, these don’t allow much room for movement to allow the designer (you the business owner) to create exactly what you want. Now we’re not sure about you, but whilst most of us understand the fundamentals of building a house and could have a good stab at it, the only way to make sure it doesn’t fall down is to get an expert in. The same is the case with website design – how many business owners also specialise in colour design and influence, market branding, sales funnels, copy writing, layouts and so on.
Often the “I’ll knock something up quickly” choice is made, in the interests of time and money, however this could prove to be a mistake. More often than not the first thing a potential new customer sees is the website and if this doesn’t convey your business as it should then that’s a lot of sales you could be missing out on.
The team at MFD are all experts in their fields from graphic design, to copy writing, illustration, even video production and what’s more, we’re here to help you as quickly and cost effectively as possible. If you have already built a DIY website or are thinking of using one of these platforms then get in touch. We’ll use our expertise to get the very best from which ever platform you are using and give your company a professional online presence whilst freeing up time for you to get on with the important job of running your business.
