ebsite Builder versus Website Designer; What you should know about both options

More and more small business owners are turning their back on website builders like Wix, Squarespace, weebly, etc.. with disappointment. They are lured into the low cost and the speed of delivery of their new website. But unfortunately they are not getting the traffic and the amount of leads that they were expecting from day one.
After a while they find themselves trying to deal with a complicated back-end interface full of issues that are left unresolved because of lack of time.
So what is the solution to get a good website? Is a Custom design Website a better option? Isn’t it expensive? why would a small business owner consider going with a local website designer? How about the cost? How long will it take to get the website up and running? How about SEO? Etc..
