Webbees vs DIY builders

There are many DIY website builders (Wix, Weebly..) on the market and they seem to offer cheap options. However, there are lots of catches you need to consider. Here are some:

  • You are not on your own. We actually build your website rather than leave you to do it on your own. We show you how to do things, you can ask us any questions on the day, personally. You don't need to raise a ticket and wait for days to get a reply. Web builder apps look easy but can be very frustrating to get familiar with it. We had many clients who abandoned their websites and came to us for help after the frustration of DIY builders. 
  • We don't tie you in with a yearly fee. You own your website. You are free to take it anywhere you like. DIY builders ties you in with a yearly fee and you cannot transfer it, you loose your website and Google ranking if you want to stop paying. 
  • You cannot remove adverts with DIY builders unless you pay for the premium themes and plans which can be expensive. 
  • You pay extra for every little functionality. For something as simple as a contact form, you need to pay extra. With WordPress, there are millions of free plug-ins that you can use. Additionally, we also have 100s of plug-ins that we use, if we have what you need, we can include it for free. 

 


Why MOST ‘Free’ Website Builders Aren’t Free

Most of the website builders claim to have some ‘free’ option. Sounds perfect, right?

That’s what I thought too initially. However, it’s also a little too good to be true. Here are the main problems.

Problem #1 – No domain name.

You’ve spent minutes (or hours) putting your brand new ‘free’ website together and you’re almost ready to hit the Publish button to make it live to the world.

Only problem is, you still need a domain name.

The ‘free’ option that most website builders provide you with are the amateurish looking web addresses like:

  • YourBusiness.My-Free-Site.com
  • YourBusiness.Weebly.com

Professional? Nope.

Unique? Nope.

Think people will take you seriously? I doubt it.

Assuming this website is for some commercial or professional reason (i.e. you want to make money from it), credibility is key, and you’re going to want something that instead looks like: YourBusiness.com or YourSite.com.

Some of these website builders do provide some ‘free domain name’ offer. But there are restrictions which we’ll explore soon.

Problem #2 – Plan Limitations.

‘Free’ versions sounds great. Until you read the fine print.

Basically, you’re going to be forced to pony up some cash for basically any type of extra or upgrade. For example:

  • Want to choose more than 10 themes/layouts? You need to pay.
  • Want to have a personal email account like You@YourSite.com? You need to pay for that.
  • Want certain features like contact form, search box or videos? You need to pay.
  • Gallery? You need to pay.
  • Get stuck or need help from their support? Pay.
  • Want to add more than X number of images or see your site statistics? Pay.

Unfortunately, the list goes on and on and on.

Website Builders commonly claim they’re free, only to then up-sell and cross-sell you to death until eventually you’re paying more than their cheapest plan in the first place.

Problem #3 – No control over your site.

This last problem is also the worst.

Let’s say you spend endless nights adding content, writing new blog posts or adding products to your eCommerce shop.

Everything’s finally starting to fall into place and look perfect.

Until one day you go to check in on your site and it’s gone.

Not just ‘down’. But gone, gone.

Panicking, you quickly reach out to customer support (and after waiting on hold for hours), get a ‘canned response’ like the following:

We’re very sorry, but your site violated our terms and TOS for free accounts, thus we had to disable it. If you want to get it live, you’ll need to pay for it.
