For many people who want to build a website themselves, or to build one quickly, they’ll go with one of the popular website building platforms such as Wix or Weebly or Squarespace. All of those platforms have a free version which in fact is quite good for anyone wanting just a quick and simple website to get started with. However, some of the more sought after features have to be paid for and require monthly payments which soon add up.
This is why a lot of users of those simple site builders end up going with a custom built alternative because the cost to value/features just doesn’t stack up in the end. For the aspiring freelance web designer there’s just too many limitations with the likes of Wix, Weebly and Squarespace, let alone the added monthly cost of getting the necessary functions to create a decent website.
Compare that with the option of using Divi & WordPress and you’ll be astounded at both the cost saving and the enormous gap in design and functionality that Divi offers.
