I see ads for free websites all the time. Build it all yourself. (And then pay a company for the template, hosting, or both-they don't usually talk a lot about that, I've noticed.)
I can see the benefit to the web company for sure. They get you to take on the burden of all of the creative and the decisions that go along with layout. And while they may allow you use of their templates, you still have to handle all the grind of making your website look professional.
Then you usually have to turn around and pay them on their terms for hosting (and sometimes other fees). It's a good business model because they basically are hands-off, and they don't have to bail you out and massage the creative process.
Well, I'm here to reassure you why you don't have to feel bad if this doesn't sound appealing to you. First of all, if you own and run a business of any size, you're already busy. What you don't need is another assignment-especially one you're not necessarily inclined to tackle.
Next, while website templates are fine, almost everyone benefits from some extra tweaks and customizations that templates don't provide. Kicking this mission to a web design firm is just the smart and more efficient thing to do.
At Trifecta, we'll create the real website you want, making it look just as super as you imagined (and hopefully even better). The project will follow a timeline and won't be susceptible to the snags that plague do-it-yourself projects.
