These days, it seems like everyone is calling themselves a web designer. And, to be honest, it’s easy to see why. There are literally dozens of platforms that let you handle your own web design at a very low cost—or even for free. But do you really get the same results as you would with professional web design services?

Unfortunately, it’s not as great as it sounds. Like many other things in life, you get what you pay for. These builders come with very limited design options. This means your website will probably bear a very strong resemblance to other sites on the same platform.They also lack much of the functionality you’re used to seeing on professionally designed sites.

DIY web builders also have another catch. In order to make their services free for you, they have to sell advertising—advertising that will appear on your website.

So before you sign up with a DIY web design service, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you want your business to look “cookie cutter”—or do you want it to stand out from the crowd?
  • Do you want people to see advertisements for other businesses while they’re learning about yours?
