We’ve Built Websites Since 1998 And Know A Thing Or Two!
An Analogy To Help You Understand Website as a Service
Imagine that you paid cash up front for a new car. It’s not cheap, and it starts depreciating when you drive it off the lot. You’re responsible for maintaining it with oil changes and more. Eventually you need new tires and a tune up, and maybe you even want to customize it.
Most people don’t have the tools or knowledge to do it themselves.
Traditionally buying a website has been like buying a car. You pay a lot up front, and once it’s launched you are responsible for managing and maintaining it. And what happens when you want to update it, add a new page, or your website crashes or gets hacked?
Like with cars, most people don’t have the tools or knowledge to properly maintain and customize their website.
This is where Website as a Service (WaaS) can help!
The Traditional Method and the Website As A Service (WaaS) Way
A website built the “Traditional Way” is the same as a website built “As A Service”. The difference is in how the payments are handled and who manages, maintains and updates the website moving forward.
The Traditional Way (Like a Product)
In a Traditional Web Build you pay for your website up front – typically 50% at the start of the build and 50% at the launch. Once the website is completed, you take responsibility for the maintenance, updates and security. Sort of like purchasing a product.
As A Service
With the Website as a Service Approach you pay a monthly fee that covers design, development, hosting, maintenance and content updates and security. Everything required to keep your site fresh and up-to-date.
Compare Website As A Service (WaaS) With A Traditional Build
The best way to understand Websites as a Service is to compare it to the the traditional way companies build and pay for website development. We still build websites the Traditional Way, but the Revolutionary WaaS model is making it easier for companies to build and manage their website for the future.
