Five Massive Reasons To Avoid Using Yell Business Websites

If you are a business that’s looking for a website then you might have come across Yell Business website, at first there offers may look great value for money but is it a case of if something looks too good to be true, then it probably is.

As a business from small to a large corporation, it’s crucial that you have a website for any potential clients, your website is the digital face of your business so having a well designed website by a web design company that cares about your business is crucial.

In this article, we’ll be taking a close look at what Yell Business has to offer and some massive reasons why you should avoid using them for your website such as not even owning your own website!

Prices Are Misleading And Could Cost You Thousands

Yell Business will show themselves as a cheap and effective solution when it comes to web design but it’s far from the actual truth. Having a very basic website created by Yell will cost you on average £50-£1000 in monthly fees and if you are looking for a 15 page website it could set you back a massive £4,000!

As soon as you stop paying your monthly fees then your website will suddenly disappear… Now that doesn’t seem really fair. Your Yell Business website could set you back £700-£1000+ a year. 

Not to mention that Yell are known for having an aggressive sales team that will make you promises that they can’t deliver on.

Our website design & free hosting for a year starts at £500 with flexible payment options and our yearly hosting fee is only a one time fee of £50 after your free year!

Poor Overdone Website Design

Yell tend to knock out websites in a similar website design that isn’t the best. Similar templates with text that seems to be copy and pasted based on business categories to save themselves time.

The reason why Yell Websites often look all the same and outdated is due to them using Duda which is very similar to the likes of Wix, Duda is very limited in what it can do for websites leading it to be very poorly mobile optimized which could be killing your business in today’s time.

All of our websites are made through WordPress to bring you a website that’s modern and up-to-date with today’s time with complete functionally.

Reviews Tell You All You Need To Know

Yell are rated 3.4 stars on Trustpilot, if you look for a service and you come across them being rated 3.4 stars, you are going to be put off for obvious reasons. Just taking a look at the reviews that Yell have gained over the years, you can see why their website design has built up an infamous reputation.

Many cases of people believing they are getting a high-quality website at a steal price only to be tied into a sly contract leading them to paying thousands in fees and no website to even show for it!

Don’t believe me? Google ‘yell trustpilot’ to see for yourself.

You Don’t Own Your Website

A massive stinger in using Yell Business websites is that you actually never own your website. When you use Wolf Of The Web, you will always own your website once it’s built you are free to do whatever you want with it. Destroy it (We wouldn’t recommend this haha!), edit it, do whatever you it’s yours.

When you decide to get your website built by Yell, you can’t move it to another hosting provider, you have to pay Yell to keep it running and if one day you decide to stop paying them. They will remove your website, sounds like something out of the mafia we know!

Don’t waste your hard earned cash for your business on something you’ll never actually own. 

Contracts With Very Little Support

Like we said before, Yell portray themselves as a cheap effective solution for web design for your business with prices that seem too good to be true. The reason they are able to do this is that with any service you choose with Yell comes with a long-term contract.

Not only are you stuck with a long-term contract but Yell Business offers very little support when any problems arise. With Yell being a massive business they treat customers often as numbers and not clients.

You will have to contact their support via email which could take months for them to just reply back to you for something as simple as changing a bit of text on your website or if you ring one of their live chat support you could be connected with anyone from around the world who couldn’t care less about your business never mind help you.

What Is The Best Option For Website Design For My Business?

As a business owner, it’s important you are using services that care about your business and don’t treat you as just another brick in the wall. As you can see using Yell Business you will be left with a poorly designed website that could cost thousands with a long-term contract that offers no type of support when you need it.

I understand as a web design service, we are going to favor ourselves more but you don’t just have to take our word for it, you can see from the reviews that Yell Business is a shady operation that is hurting business owners from all walks of life.
