While we’ve established the importance of building a successful website – and why you most definitely, 100 percent need one – what we now need to establish is, who creates it: you or a professional?
How much time do you have to spare?
We all know just how valuable time is. Do you want to spend yours building a website? Whether you can design or not, will building a website distract you from running and growing your business? Think about it this way, have you got the time to familiarize yourself with the basics of website building, Googling color schemes, and researching page layouts? The answer is probably no. So why bother in the first place?
When it comes to saving you time, outsourcing your website to professionals wins. With their extensive knowledge and experience, it’s a much more time-efficient option.
Do you have the knowledge to build a site?
We’ll admit it, if you’re looking to build a fairly basic website, then it’s no secret, there are programs and online applications that will allow you to build a platform yourself.
However, unless you are an expert in building websites, the readily available applications will only offer you a basic solution – not the all-singing, all-dancing, showstopping, fully functioning site that you could get by outsourcing your website.
A website is more than just a name
If you think you can get away with simply creating a catchy name and throwing together a few complementary colors together to create an eye-catching website, you’d be wrong. With 57 percent of internet users admitting that they wouldn’t recommend a business with a poorly designed website, visitor experience needs to be an absolute priority. This means stepping it up on the design front, with things like brand, layout, menu options, and font seriously considered. The knowledge that comes with hiring an experienced professional often proves priceless.
Money, money, money
Of course, as with most business decisions, money is bound to influence whether you choose to build a website yourself or not. You won’t be shocked to hear that doing it yourself will save you paying a professional to do it. However, will it really save you money, long-term? If you’re spending time designing and creating your website instead of investing your experience in managing your business, the chances are it will cost you more than outsourcing would. The likelihood is that the return on investment when hiring a professional team of experts will be worth it.

If we’re honest, there probably was a time when you could’ve gotten away with creating a basic, pretty bland, website yourself, but things have changed – the world is constantly evolving, enhanced by the digital revolution. Your website is your online storefront, your access to an international audience, and one of the few opportunities you have to engage with a customer. Businesses these days simply cannot afford to mess it up.
