Website builders in kenya – Free Website in Kenya
To be honest, as a developer working at Oracom Web Solutions LTD for the past 8 years, I had never used website builders before. The closest I can remember is a wix which I always advised clients against.
What is a Website Builder?
Using a website builder, you can create a fully functional website with an online tool. You can update your website’s text or add new articles, images or video using a user-friendly interface. All you need is your browser. No technical skills are required. Just point and click, highlight, copy and paste. That is all.
Having developed websites for a while, I’d rather dive straight into coding that I learnt in school such as HTML, CSS and PHP; avoiding those drag and drop functions that website builders have. CMS applications like wordpress, joomla are my best options mostly.
I was very sceptical.
However, I was positively surprised by the ease-of-use and flexible customisation options that 1-2 website builders have in Kenya. Especially for the cost to the client and the time reduction.
Website builders vs. a web developer?
In Kenya, a good custom website could easily cost Kshs. 200,000. Making changes or ongoing updates could still require a web designer or developer to help you continually update your site (additional payments of close to Kshs. 30,000 per month for maintenance).
Yet for only a few shillings each month and in some cases for free, some of these website builders could give you almost everything you’d ever want at less than 1% of the cost.
Not to mention, you can easily login yourself and change copy, upload images, or add new pages within seconds (and without calling for tech support).
Some website builders have multiple templates that gives you a variety to choose from.
