Fabsite vs. DIY Site Builders


There are many options available to anyone choosing to create their own website from scratch and choosing the right one can be difficult. Do you opt for a do-it-yourself website solution, or do you work with a website design company to achieve the desired effect?

Here at Fabsite, we are naturally biased towards the latter option, but not without good reason. Here are just five ways in which a bespoke website from Fabsite differs from any of the DIY models.

1. The professional touch

When you create a DIY website, you’re pretty much on your own. Sure there are tutorial videos and articles you can follow but, unless you already have experience in website design, your site is likely to look amateurish at best.

With Fabsite, we employ a team of seasoned professionals with years of experience in website design, copywriting, SEO, and more. Between them, they will produce a unique website that not only looks amazing, but also fulfils all your requirements

2. Time and effort

Whatever business you operate, that is your area of expertise. Why then, detract from that to build your own website? Website creation is a long and time-consuming task if you don’t know what you’re doing.

With Fabsite, we do all the hard work for you and, thanks to our years of experience, create a website quickly and professionally.

3. Owning your website

With a DIY site builder, you never really own the site, even if you own the domain name. The site host keeps hold of your design data for as long as you continue paying your subscription. Once you stop – the website goes down.

With Fabsite, our contracts only last for 18 months. Not only does this allow you to spread the cost of website creation over an affordable period, it also means that, once your subscription has been paid, the website is all yours.

4. Performance and optimisation

Most DIY sites are bare bones at best, offering little in the way of insight when it comes to performance.

Fabsite, on the other hand, comes with a free marketing dashboard. This allows you to check your site’s keyword rankings in Google, as well as other useful analytics. You can even choose to upgrade to a premium package, which includes your own dedicated SEO technician. These ranking experts have a host of solutions to boost your website’s performance.

5. Monitoring and support

DIY sites do often provide their users with an easy-to-use interface to get their website up and running with little to no coding experience. These allow you to create basic changes and additions at the click of a button.

At Fabsite, we offer something similar. Once our professional web designers have created your website from scratch, we install a drag-and-drop system content management system. Not only that we will also provide you with a tutorial on using the system, and a dedicated account manager for support when you need it the most.
