Benefits of a bespoke website vs drag and drop

In this modern age, everyone has a website. It’s almost a rite of passage for any business, freelancer or blogger. A website can give clients information about you, your services and your company. It’s a great way to raise awareness and provide a platform for your brand. Once you’ve decided you need a website, there are a variety of different options to choose from. A popular option is to use a drag and drop site builder such as Weebly. These sorts of sites allow you to create a website by, obviously, dragging and dropping things into place. The other option is to get a bespoke website created for you, by an agency. Both options are viable, can make an impact and have pros and cons. In our blog, we will explore these two options and their benefits.

Drag and Drop

A drag and drop website is a very convenient option. It tends to be initially cheaper to actually get up and running. Once you’re using the programme you can customise your pages and mould them to reflect your brand. The majority of these programmes are faster to get going and get your site live, so if you are looking for something time efficient then this is a viable option. Literally, anybody can create a website like this. You need no previous experience with coding or designing to get a great looking website. The customisation options are simple and easy to use.

A drag and drop site is ideal for a smaller company who don’t have such a big budget. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a great looking, functional website. If you are just starting up with your company and testing the waters, this sort of site is ideal. You can always think about other options further down the line.

Bespoke web design

A bespoke website is a great option for more established business’ who are looking for a long-term option.

You can speak at length with your web design team so they can work to a precise specification. If there’s a specific detail that you want, the team can provide that for you.
