Should you design your own business website? It certainly is possible. There are many WordPress themes to choose from that make it easy to do yourself, or you can use Weebly, Wix, or Squarespace and be online. The questions to ask yourself before beginning are, do I have the time, interest, and skill to do a professional job? That being said, this is your business and you want to put your best foot forward. Many times I have browsed to a business professional’s website and I can tell instantly that they created it themselves. But, other times not, and maybe these people have found a passion for design work.
Other times, a business just does not have the skill or asthetics. Then they should definatelyhire a designer. I for one will always do my best to work within someone’s budget. There is always something I can do.
Check out this awesome article I found on Jillyndesign.com on web design. Do it yourself, or do it right? It really spoke to me about the pros and cons of doing it yourself.
