When a therapist or healer is looking for a new website, some take the option of building their own from scratch. This is a mistake. The amount of work involved in developing a website cannot be underestimated, as it is a difficult and highly technical task, and is also continuous for the life of any website.
On the surface, it seems like an economic advantage can be gained, by going it alone and building a website from the ground up, but sooner or later the web developer has to go beneath the surface, and this is time-consuming and expensive. It makes total sense if one plans to build multiple websites because then the massive investment of time can pay dividends later, but to build a few websites it is a very poor investment of time.
How do I know this? I've been building websites for 7 years now, the first 4 years working with HTML code, and the previous 3 years using WordPress. I've spent months of my life searching Google trying to fix the latest problem, and then spending hours troubleshooting the same problem. If I'm honest this is something that I've enjoyed, as it suits my personality, and it led to me creating Healer Hosts and the manifest my website service. The thought of doing the same thing to build a single website for myself, from the beginning again, makes me cringe.
Developing a website alone is expensive and time-consuming.
WordPress is a pretty straightforward platform, but when you start to implement plugins, themes, security, search engine optimisation, server-side caching and so forth it can get very complicated very quickly. The problem is that a standard WordPress install is only about 10% of the work required, to have a high functioning website. All of this is well before the design process can start, and so momentum can easily be lost before anything of value is produced.
Even if a person is stubborn enough and has enough time, to develop a website alone, it is still a very poor investment of time and energy. Even for a simple 10-page website, you could take up to 50 hours, wrestling your website into reality. Even at a minimum wage of £10 per hour, this is still £500 and 50 hours that could be spent in a much more productive way. The Investment of time reviewed honestly at £30 per hour is most shocking indeed...
You could waste £1,500 and 50 hours before designing a single page.
The problem runs deeper than this because any website requires constant updates and maintenance, to maintain a high level of security and functionality. This also takes a considerable amount of time, as 30+ independently developed software programs, continuously interact with each other. Each plugin is like a cog in a machine.
What are the most time-consuming tasks when developing a website is selecting the software to provide the functionality, and although it sounds simple it's not? A therapists website is a specialist website and requires special software, which takes time to select and install, then uninstall and reinstall again. Hours and hours in fact.
The performance of your website, in terms of getting results, is a very hard thing to get right on the first attempt. We all make mistakes the first time we do anything, but making a mistake with the expression of yourself and your business is not cool. It's difficult to quantify the amount of time that can be wasted, creating a website that does not attract and convert your clients.
Developing and designing your website is only the beginning because your website is a tool, and needs to be utilised, to get the results you desire. To even understand the basics of digital marketing takes a long time, and much more time can be wasted still in digesting all the b******* that one can find on the Internet. Your website needs to be designed effectively to produce a result, but without the help of experience, this is a very difficult task.
Designing your website is the beginning and not the end.
Poorly constructed and designed websites simply don't perform. They fail to convert visitors into clients, even if they can acquire any visitors at all because most poorly Developed & Designed websites do not appear in search results. SEO can be a very difficult subject to learn, which is why experts demand over £200 per hour.
I could go on... But this is getting a little depressive, so let's turn our attention to the solution, and the reason why Healer Hosts exists, to help and support you. The manifest my website service, as I'm sure you're aware by now, has been created to solve many of the problems that therapists and healers face, when looking to design a website.
The first thing we decided to do at Healer Hosts was to take responsibility for ALL of your website development, which means you don't have to and can avoid all of the pain mentioned above.
