What would you do if you were walking down the street and a stranger approached you with $500 and handed it to you. You might take it, but your first thought would probably be “Why are they giving me something?“, next would be “Is it real money?“, lastly you’d probably wonder “What do they want in return?” Why would you accept a “free” website without asking yourself the same questions?
There are companies that offer “free” websites. There are also other people that would recommend them to you. Will they work? Short answer is “kind of”. The long answer is a bit more complicated. When you choose a “free” product, you are the product. They give you the site, but then they have access to everything about it: Your statistics, your content, your visitors. They also advertise that you are using their free product by placing their banner or advertisement on your business website. If the company offering the “free” site shutters, so does all of your content, with no way to retrieve it.

” A low cost website is much different than a cheap website. A cheap website will cost you much more in the long run, in lost clients and missed opportunities. It’s worth the extra upfront cost to have a good website built by a professional. “
Want to move your website elsewhere? Sorry, there’s no easy way to do it – by design. You’re stuck. To move it elsewhere, you’ll end up paying someone to do it manually anyway. Want to add functionality to your website? Cross your fingers. If that “free website” company doesn’t offer it, you won’t be able to do it. If they do offer it, they will offer it their way, not yours.
Consider the old adage “Never look a gift horse in the mouth”. If it’s free, you should take it, right? Well, if you have raised horses, know how to take care of horses and can ferry them around, sure, you should take the horse. What if you’ve never owned horses before and don’t know how to care for them? Taking the horse just because it’s “free” may end up wiping you out. A horse needs a place to stay, requires food and a sick one has vet bills. Oh, you wanted a trotter? You were given a quarter horse. It doesn’t do what you need it to do.
If you’re running a business, you know your business well. Let Shenandoah Websites take the extra workload off your plate and manage your website for you.
Don’t fall prey to other low cost website offerings that collect your money, then hand you off to someone else to do the work for you. Shenandoah Websites is here for you from start to finish.
