Should You Build The Website Yourself?

Feb 01, 2016

You’ve Got a Business and You Need a Website

The head of your marketing efforts is of course going to be your internet presence, and your first inclination might be to build the website yourself. This could allow extra personalization and you would ensure everything was done just as you’d like it, plus no one else would have access to make changes. There are pros and cons to this mindset, and to letting someone else take care of the work for you.

Starting On Your Own

A huge benefit to creating your own site is price. If you do not have a generous mid-sized budget, start here and give it a shot. You can make changes when you want to without needing to contact a web developer and there are many easy website builders to use these days – like WordPress! Depending on your skill with a website builder, you could save some hassle by putting all of your photos and content online yourself instead of sending them to a developer first. Keep in mind that you do not need to reinvent the wheel for common business information. If you don’t need an elaborate site with many features and a shop, you could save a lot of time and effort going the self-build route.

Having a Pro Handle It

They’ve been in the business, they know what works and doesn’t work. They also know the ins and outs of the platform and can likely accomplish tasks much quicker than you would be able to. They may have some great marketing suggestions that you didn’t think of, and a better familiarization with attracting useful traffic to your site for business. They will be able to help you create something very eye catching and unconventional. And while they are taking care of your online presence, you can handle the logistics of your new or growing business!
