Creating and running a website yourself is a lot of work. First, there’s hosting. You are going to also need a designer and a copywriter. An SEO expert is crucial if you want to get ranked high in search results. Occasionally, you will need to perform website maintenance. And if you want to learn from your web traffic, hiring someone to make sense of web analytics is just as important. No wonder most companies have dedicated personnel and entire departments for all this.
But, in addition to lengthy development times, a website can be a substantial investment. Agencies charge thousands for even simple websites and freelancers are often unreliable and not transparent about pricing. And both, after handing over the keys, leave clients to fare for themselves. As a consequence, maintaining a website can be a tall order for many companies who have neither the staff nor the budget to do it properly. Yet, going without one and missing out on the thriving online market is not an option. So, what are businesses to do?
MBJ’s Website as a Service (WaaS) allows for even small businesses to have a quality website. Instead of dealing with all the spinning plates, a dedicated external staff builds, develops, manages the site, and reports back to you — like having your own in-house IT team.
To recap, WaaS makes your life easier by…
- Eliminating needless guessing, busywork and liaising.
If you are building a website “the old fashioned way” you have to interact with multiple parties. Resulting in you becoming more coordinator that entrepreneur. Website as a Service eliminates all of this. Everything is taken care of in one place, with single points of contact.
- Working with a team of experts at a fraction of the cost.
Website as a Service gets you access to your own dedicated IT department without having to bear the cost of hiring and overhead. These experts take care of hosting, web design, web development, SEO, and everything else involved in running a website.
- Saving you time and energy.
Most importantly without the need to constantly worry about your website, you can use that time and energy for other things—like running your business.
In the end, website as a service is all about prioritising. It allows you to outsource an important part of your business to someone who can give it more specialised attention. That way, you have the chance to divert time to other parts of your business with the peace of mind that your online presence is taken care of.
