5 Common Misconceptions About Web Development

Are you planning to get a business website and looking for a web development agency?

These days most business owners understand the importance of a website. So if you’re thinking about your business’s online presence then you’re one of them.

Before you move further, there are some misconceptions about website designing that you should be aware of.

1 – Building website is an easy job, anybody can do it.

Let me clear this, developing a website is not easy. I don’t know about the future but it’s never been an easy job. Website designing is a process of creativity and problem-solving skills. It also requires a good experience in the field.

There are lots of planning, research, trial, and error involved.

2 – Web development shouldn’t cost you high.

You will surely find cheap service providers for designing your website. But trust me you should avoid them. If the cost is cheap then there is no hard work involved. They will just use a pre-designed template to build your site.

The actual website development process requires creativity, talent and lots of hard work. So it might cost you higher than your expectations.

3 – Your website maintenance should be free.

Website maintenance is a task which requires human-hours. If you want your website to perform its best and stay relevant, you’ll need a good maintenance service.

If someone is offering you a free maintenance service it simply means that nothing is being maintained. When it comes to your business website you should not look for free services.

4 – You can use images from Google search on your website.

A very bad idea and you should never do this. Images in Google search results are part of other websites. Those images are mostly copyrighted.

So to avoid any future legal issues you should never use images from Google search.

5 – If the design is great, website content doesn’t matter.

Your great looking website will surely catch the user’s attention but to keep them interested you need great content too.

And the content is super important to rank your website in search engines.
