For most builders web design isn’t something they think about much. There’s no reason why it should be; that’s a job for web designers, right? Builders build stuff, web designers design websites. And yes, that’s pretty much the way it goes. If you want to keep your business competitive these days, though, you need to have a presence online, and that means getting a web designer working for you.
Most web hosting packages come with simple design tools, so there’s nothing to stop you creating your own building firm website. Is that the best use of your time though? You have a building business to run, after all, and you don’t want to drop that to do other stuff. You also need to consider if a basic online design tool is going to give you all the functions you want on your website. They’re fine if you just want to create a simple page that will show up in search engines but technology is advancing fast and the standards for business websites are rising all the time.

It’s very easy to add an email link to a site but a proper online contact form looks a lot more professional, which helps to build confidence in your brand.

That’s a great way to let both potential clients and existing customers know about special offers and new services, and it’s really effective at bringing in business.
