Web design and web development. You may have heard the term “web design” more than “web development”. Yet, what is the difference between the two? What qualifications does one need to be a designer vs a developer? In a nutshell, web design refers to both the aesthetic part of a website and its usability.
In the past few years, DIY website builder sites have really taken off. Websites such as Wix, Weebly and Squarespace offer free templates, your own website and easy to use technology. For startups and new businesses, the lure of low-cost, low-risk and easy-to-manage web builder software is irresistible. One of the biggest mistakes that a startup can make is attempting to take the easy route when building their website. In fact, building a company website with a website builder platform such as Wix can prove to be detrimental. At Faceless, we’ve witnessed how these cheap website builders can be a faulty platform, create website issues, cost money, and harm your company image.
At Faceless Marketing, we’ve built a lot of websites for our clients, including landing pages, e-commerce, sliders, animation and everything in between. One of the biggest challenges of web building isn’t development and design. Rather, it’s explaining the process to our clients in a way that they can comprehend. We realize that not everyone is an expert in web development, web hosting, or domains. However, we want our clients and future clients to have a preliminary understanding of how their website functions. At Faceless, we are more than happy to explain our process. Additionally, we offer private education courses on everything from SEO to web design. Today is your special day: we are giving you this handy guide on domains, web hosting, and websites.
