A web designer makes your website look good. A developer usually specializes in designing website apps – a web designer focuses more on what the user will enjoy doing. Website builders might offer the easiest way to get online, but getting professional help will likely provide bigger and better results (at more of cost than website builders, of course).
Web designers in essence, are a master of all web design trades and their specific roles can vary hugely depending on what you want.
