It’s Easy To Create Website These Days
With modern WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) builder technology, you don’t even need to do any coding to create a website, and along with YouTube. You can easily learn and create your own.
Furthermore, website builders companies these days come with templates that you just need to edit the text and replacing the default pictures to craft your own marketing messages.
Thus, the fastest person to create a website would be you, yourself with the templates provided… So that you don’t have to discuss and communicate back and forth your requirement.
Paying Someone To Build Website…
Another reason that you should learn it yourself, is the consideration that should you need to make changes to the site, what are you gonna do?
Wait for your site designer? For how long? When would you get a reply? Duration going back and forth? And how much would he/she be charging you?
Let’s say if you run a restaurant, what if you want to change the menu? Today’s Special? Or you happened to come across some very nice ingredients and would like to introduce something seasonal? Will you be waiting?
And if you know nothing about creating a website, what are the chances that you may be paying someone overpriced?
I had the unpleasant experience attending a webinar to see someone paying more than $10k for a ClickFunnel site with FB Ad(s) created, advertising cost not included, which just makes me sick.
The “guru” couldn’t even be bothered or maybe he did not even know how to redirect non-www. link to www. domain name. In the end, just typing [the website name].com without www., resulting in an error page.
The disadvantage of a Sales Funnel is that it is light in terms of content, thus advertising and organic social engagement and interaction becomes an important aspect of the traffic generation. You could be better off paying someone for Search Engine Optimization (SEO) services.
Websites Are Dead…
I believe this trend started with ClickFunnels as an engaging advertisement to catch attention. With modern-day technology, you don’t really need to hire anyone and you could get it all done in a day.
The traditionally styled website is dead when compared with a Sales Funnel. Why? Simply ask yourself what is the ultimate purpose you want of your website? We are making a guess here: To convert a visitor to a lead or to make a sale. Nothing Else.
“A confused Mind Never Buys”
Even the old traditional sales funnel is dead. Previously, in order to create a modern sales funnel, Russell would spend thousands of dollars to hire a copywriter, web designer, a graphics designer, a programmer, and wait for 8 weeks to coordinate and assemble everything together.
And shall you visit ClickFunnels.com, you will see that ClickFunnels Is A Website And Sales Funnel Builder For Entrepreneurs. So which website is dead? Check out his clarifications in the webinar below:
If you like the offer in this video, go for it. But if you think it’s too much money upfront, here’s the alternative, the ordinary One Funnel Away Challenge (OFA) that we even dedicated our own front page promoting. It could most probably be the best $100 marketing hands-on education you can get.
I Want to Build My Own Sales Funnel
The current best “FREE” can get, We would recommend Groove Funnel. The fastest-growing funnel building platform with no credit card requirement and no limited time trial – Free for Life.
But do note that it’s rather new and still in Beta testing stage. Issues (Bugs) are expected. Pricing wise, it is unbeatable currently, a totally irresistible promise of lifetime full marketing software suite at a one-time payment.
However, we prefer ClickFunnels’ Marketing Education while deploying Groove Marketing Tools – Best of both world.
When Would You Outsource to A Website Builder?
- When you have the experience of building a site, even if you failed, at least you have a gauge of how much you are willing to pay.
- You know how to edit and make simple changes yourself.
- It is cheaper and maybe faster for someone else to do it for you – Delegation is part of any Business Management.
- You don’t think you will be making any changes once finalized with your designer.
- You would feel better off doing something else
- When you are earning so much money that you don’t mind being taken advantage of – You just want the job done.
On a serious note, with all the templates provided in a decent funnel company, it is unlikely the structure and design that will fail you.
More likely your copywriting would be the culprit – your very answer to “why your visitor should buy from you” on the website. Once again we are promoting the OFA Challenge to you as it covers the strategic and tactical part of Creating a Compelling Sales Funnel.
Who else but you, would know best about your products/services to sell them? A good copywriter knows how to get people to buy, but he must know enough of the products or services that he is selling in order to achieve that.
So instead of hiring a designer, it might be better to hire a good copywriter if you can afford it, but you will still need to provide the details, the features for your copywriter to get the angle of approach for you to sell.
After that, to improve on your credibility and trust, you would still need to create the sales video in person that is as close to the copy too.
In case, You Asked: “What is A Website?”
Technically, We would say a website is whatever online entity that has a domain name. A blog is a website, a sales funnel is a website, a single HTML page is also a website, just like Google.com, the world’s simplest homepage, of any website.
Definition by Oxford Dictionary: A set of related web pages located under a single domain name, typically produced by a single person or organization.
Wikipedia’s definition: A website (also written as web site) is a collection of web pages and related content that is identified by a common domain name and published on at least one web server.
