The last days of top level domains & custom sites
Fri, Sep 21 2018
I've lost two long term clients to DIY web building systems. Christian Weber a 20-year relationship was lost to WIX. And Storm Interiors a 10 Year relationship was lost to Square space. These were both clients who needed expertise in UX, someone with an understanding of the aesthetics of luxury and someone they could pick up the phone and talk to when they needed support, maintenance or updates.
Their new sites are cheap looking & buggy in my opinion. And they are stuck in the frameworks of the site builders. But that is the trend in the industry now. Good luck to them. C'est la vie.
