When a new website is born, realisation dawns upon the owner. There’s no content! The role of a website builder is not to create content, but to create the framework structures that houses the content.
Take Wix website builder, it can walk through the set-up process and build the website in minutes. The website builder set-up wizard is going to create a carbon copy of a template and insert the data (business name and details) you enter into HTML tags, titles, and other placeholders across a new blank website.
Editing and creating SEO rich website content, takes time, experience and the right tools. You’ll want to hire somebody with at least 3-years web design experience.
Touch screen devices are particularly fiddly when it comes to copying and pasting website text. Wix website builder has mobile friendly design editor, which lets you check how the page appears on mobile phones. One simply can’t just create tiny text and squash things.
Touch screen editing can be cumbersome. To build a website quick, use a computer with keyboard, mouse and monitor. Then see how it looks on your mobile.

Not to mention the time it takes. Moving a website to a new home is technically difficult.
