The Biggest Mistakes of DIY Websites - Darsh Softwares

These days, it’s easy to get a website online. You can go to anyone of the big DIY (Do it Yourself) builder Websites like Wix, Squarespace, Weebly and register and create a new website. What’s not easy is knowing what to put on it, how to make it work well, figuring out how people will use it, and planning a strategy to create meaningful conversions.

Yet, getting a website up isn’t hard, having a website that looks incredible and functions admirably is another story. I see a ton of mistakes on DIY sites, things that an entrepreneur won’t perceive yet somebody in the Web Design business will. Here are the top mistakes

Poorly organized content

This is #1 greatest issue with DIY sites. Entrepreneurs frequently have zero thought where to put their content. They’ll have all the content on one page, overlook an about page, neglect to incorporate significant contact data Or on the other hand, frequently, they’ll have very slim content. Rather than having full cotent on the majority of their services, they’ll incorporate one page with one sentence on each service.Also incomplete content for your clients to understand your services and it’s not enogh for the search engine to understand..

Missing calls-to-action

Need somebody to do something on your site? At that point you have to ask them. A biggest mistake of DIY sites is that they neglect call-to-action.If you dont ask your visitor to take next step, they may leave your site before not doing what you need them to do.

Not mobile-friendly

When you create your website you forgot that maximum user visits websites on their phone.

According to Study at Stonetemple. In 2018, 58% of site visits from mobile devices

The recent study in 2020 at Internet Advisor no of smartphone users are 3.5 billion

Also, usage statics says, The average person will spend an average of 2 hours and 51 minutes each day on their smartphone.

So if your website is not mobile friendly you may loss your visitors & clients.

Looks homemade

Its obvious that if you made website yourself, its look homemade and its poor presentation of your business & services.Why should someone spend thousands of money on your services if you could afford to get a professional website?

Another frequently overlooked thing on DIY sites are Google Analytics, Google Search Console and your Google Business Listing. These are free tools from Google that let you monitor your traffic, your search appearance, and your spot on the map. Such a large number of DIYers overlook these and they are so important.

Not encrypted

Google the Search engine giant wants your website to be encrypted that their widely used browser (Google Chrome) Say “Not Secure” in the address bar
