Starting your own website? Get ready for some excitement, some frustration and (hopefully) a cool product in the end. But is it really necessary to build all this from scratch? What if you could simply buy a ready-made website and skip straight to the fun part of marketing and promotion?
A ready-made website (or turnkey website) already includes all the copy, the functionality such as accepting online payments, and complete design and branding. Although a ready-made website isn’t for everyone, there are certainly benefits to buying a site instead of building one from the ground up.
We’ve listed 5 reasons to buy a ready-made website today:
1. It’s instant
When you buy a ready-made website, you own it right away. Don’t feel like spending days, weeks or months planning your business model, choosing a content management system and comparing different dropshippers?
A ready-made website has got you covered and is ready to go. When you buy it, you can start running the site right away.
2. It’s less risky
Imagine this: you’ve just spent 2 weeks building the perfect website using Wix website builder, only to find out that you need WordPress or Shopify to synchronize products from your dropshipper. Ouch – this would literally mean starting all over again.
A turnkey website is ready-made and already includes all the functionality needed to run and operate the business smoothly. That means no surprises and fast results.
3. It’s cheaper
Although there are definitely free alternatives when it comes to website building (WordPress and Wix for example), these usually come with a learning curve and will take some time to master.
Most ready-made websites will cost you less than $300. That’s often less than a custom-built site, and in some cases even less than a self-made one if you’re using expensive premium plugins and themes.
Ready-made websites also don’t have any recurring costs, at least the ones that we sell don’t. That’s pretty handy and can save you lots of money over-time compared to subscription platforms such as Shopify or SquareSpace.
4. No learning curve
I’ll admit: learning to build your own website can be exciting and if you want to learn website development, I definitely recommend you do that. But if your strength is in marketing and promoting your newly launched internet biz then building a website from scratch may not be your highest priority.
Even when you hire a professional to take care of things, knowing how the web works is never a bad idea. A ready-made website can save you time on the learning curve, which you can then spend planning and marketing your website.
5. You don’t need any technical skills
A ready-made website comes with instructions and support on how to run things. You don’t need to know how the sausage is made, only how to eat it.
Buying a ready-made website can be a good alternative to building one yourself or hiring a developer, depending on what sort of business you’re looking to start.
A ready-made website is instant, fully set-up and can save you time and money compared to building a site from scratch.
Our ready-made websites even include a full marketing guide that explains how to best market your website through both free and paid methods.
