A Web designer in Santa Barbara who builds websites often deploy websites with technical issues that simply cannot be fixed.
Poor user experience because of how long a page takes to load and because of browser compatibility issues are at the top of the list of problems we see.

We absolutely do not recommend a build it yourself website. It takes years of experience to plan, develop and deploy a website correctly. There is no shortage of freely available drag and drop website builders. Most of the free solutions monetize their products by placing ads on your website. Many of these solutions allow for some modification such as images and colors. They typically work okay on mobile screen sizes as well. If SEO is important to you and you expect to show up on the first page of google and attract new leads, having full control over your site is a must. How fast your website loads and displays is important. Having total control of where elements are locasted is essential for SEO.
Do-it-yourself website builders do not give you the control you need. Only a custom built website by a professional web developer can achieve the right results. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. A professionally built website by an expert web development company gives you the control you need. You are not tied to a particular web host and you can move your website to any provider you choose.
