WaaS: how can it transform my business? 

So you know what Website as a Service is. Now it’s time to see how it can transform your business. 

By the end of this post, you should be able to make a confident decision about whether WaaS is a good choice for you.

    The benefits of Website as a Service

    There’s no large upfront cost or unexpected bills

    Websites don’t come cheap. If you choose the traditional way, you’ll need to cough up 50% upfront and 50% once the site is finished. Even smaller projects could cost you between £3,000 and £6,000 upfront. So yeah, not cheap. But aside from the initial cost, there’s the cost of making changes. That banner copy you want to change to announce a sale. Yeah, that’ll cost you. Updating your website’s security. That’ll cost you too.

    With WaaS, the initial cost is a LOT less — below £1,000 for sure. And the cost for making changes, updating your security and general maintenance is included in the monthly price so you won’t have any unexpected bills.

    Your web project will grow with your brand

    With WaaS, your website will never be outdated or look old fashioned. Whatever changes you make to your business, no matter how big or small, your website will reflect that. All the things you do offline, you can do online — easily. 

    Your website might only get a few hundred visitors a month to begin with, but as that grows to a few thousand a month, Website as a Service means you can give all your customers the same online experience. 

    Plus, you might only want a basic site to get your business off the ground, but as the sales pour in, you might want to add additional features or functionality to your website to impress visitors. With WaaS, you can do this easily and affordably. 

     

      The thing with WaaS is that it’s a lot easier (and less stressful) for you to update their website with their latest marketing and sales messaging. 

      Always up to date with your marketing and sales messaging 

      Anyone who comes into contact with your company will likely visit your site. So if the messaging on your website isn’t the same as your messaging offline or other online platforms, it’s a red flag, and you risk losing that potential client. 

      The thing with WaaS is that it’s a lot easier (and less stressful) for you to update their website with their latest marketing and sales messaging. 

      You’ll have round the clock support 

      Websites break and there’s nothing you can do about it. After all, they are just a bunch of code. But certain functionality can cause errors on your site that your visitors will see. This isn’t great for your business or its reputation. So what do you do? 

      Well, usually, you’d hire a freelancer or an agency to fix it for you. The only problem with both of these is that they’re expensive and take time. This is where WaaS comes in. 

      With WaaS, if your site goes down or you encounter a problem, all you need to do is raise a support ticket and your issue will be fixed as soon as possible, and as part of the service contract — no questions asked.

      Hosting, Domain and maintenance, all taken care of 

      Unless you’ve done it before, or you’re clued up on hosting, domains, maintenance and uptime, it can be tricky to get these things right, all of which are crucial for keeping your site in tip-top shape.

      With WaaS, all these things are part of the service, as standard, at no extra cost to you. If the service is down or something needs updating, it’ll be fixed before you notice it needs doing.
