Wix is a free website builder that makes it easy to establish and maintain a professional online presence. Unlike many free tools, Wix offers thousands of customization options. You can easily create a custom logo, change your site's color scheme, add multimedia content, or make your site more accessible to visually impaired customers.
Wix also has built-in tools for search engine optimization, which can improve your page rankings and help more customers find your business. Pages created with Wix load quickly, reducing the risk that Google will penalize your site for slow speed. Eye-catching templates make adding headings, bulleted lists, and other formatting elements easy for visitors to scan the site.
If you're concerned about security and reliability, Wix has tools to ease those concerns. The company uses multi-cloud hosting and ensures an uptime of 99.9% even if your site experiences a major spike in traffic due to a successful marketing campaign. Enterprise-grade security also protects your company against data breaches and other cybersecurity threats.

GoDaddy offers an easy-to-use website builder that produces responsive websites. These websites display well on screens of all sizes, including smartphones and tablets. As a result, they're easy for visitors to read and navigate. Upgrading to a paid plan gives you more flexibility, such as the ability to accept online payments for your products or services.
GoDaddy offers free templates, but they are designed mostly for restaurants and companies in the health, fashion, and beauty industries. You may want to consider a custom website if you need a website for your home services business.
What are the benefits of a custom website compared to using a website builder?
- You stand out from the crowd: It provides a competitive edge as you know no other competitor will be using the same template as you.
- You can customize the website to your exact content needs: Website builders frequently restrict customers to specific modules or templates. With a custom website, you don’t have to worry about building your content strategy around website builder limits. Instead, you can add modules like coupons, global content features, testimonials, videos, and unique plug-ins and integrations (such as Schedule Engine and eCommerce features) as you desire and build the ideal user experience for your customers.
- You can highlight the advantages of hiring your company: Due to the flexibility of custom websites, you can better highlight why customers should hire your company and make it easy for them to convert. You can create visible and accessible “schedule estimate” forms and Call-to-Action buttons on all your service pages. Or, you can add a section listing why customers should hire you for a service with corresponding designed icons for each bullet point.
- You can enable better Search Engine Optimization: Having access to developers and SEO specialists for a custom site helps you rank better on search engines. A dev team can help you implement a user- and mobile-friendly, responsive, and fast-loading site, improving your ranking. SEO specialists can help you craft technical backend work (e.g., metadata, page URLs, and alt tags), identify pages that should be crawled, and insert internal links. Not to mention that having a custom website template allows you to write longer-form content, which significantly affects SEO ranking.
- You can attribute your leads: A custom website allows you to track generated leads and revenue properly. You can tie your site directly to your marketing campaigns so that you know exactly how well the website produces leads for you.
- You can maintain a consistent brand image: Working with a website designer on your custom site ensures that your site has the same visual elements as your direct mail, business cards, service vehicles, button-up shirts that your technicians wear, and more.
- You retain ownership of your site: Many website builders do not give you ownership over your site. You will own your content and design with a custom site from the get-go.
- It can give you a higher return on investment in the long run: Better SEO rankings and higher conversion rates will help you generate more leads.
