Should you build a website yourself?
It ultimately comes down to what your needs are, your budget, your future plans, and your overall skill level.
- If your needs are more custom, hiring is probably best.
- If you have a small budget, you might want to do it yourself or find a new designer looking for some experience. You might also try to outsource the design through a freelancing website, and there are plenty of websites to do so.
- If you need a quick site up now, and plan on building something better in the future – hit up Squarespace and DIY!
- If you want a great website and want to add advanced features in phases – hire it out
- If you’re pretty confident on a computer your chances of success are greater, and you’ll be better equipped to overcome inevitable problem spots
- If your time is valuable to you, and you’d rather focus on your business – hire it out
Overall in the end, I hope that it’s clear that the execution – the design/development of your site is built upon the Website Plan. If you can think through that, you’re leagues ahead, all that’s left is the do-ing!
