Should you build your own website?

Should you build your website?

There are so many decisions you must make regularly as a small business owner or even a home owner. What expenses can I reduce if I do things on my own vs. what things do we have to hire someone to do for us? What expenses are worth spending the money?  And what are the long term impacts of those decisions.

If I decide to paint my son’s room and it turns out badly. Who will see it? My son, his friends and our family will see it. Not a tremendous number of people.

If the first website you try to build is for your business, who will see it?  EVERYONE!  All your potential clients, your current clients, your friends and family. First impressions are so important.  You need it to be perfect. 

There are so many elements that need to be set properly to really have your website found and indexed properly by Google.  Only a partial list of examples:
  • You need to start with a good design –  there is an actual science to the way people read a web page.
  • Then a solid menu structure
  • Add alt tags on your images
  • You need to know to register your site with Google and their standards are getting more stringent every year.
  • And many more.

In other words, there are so many details, some major, and others minor.  Please don’t do it yourself! You only have one chance to make an awesome first impression. Invest in a High Quality website that will help your business or group shine.

It is essential that you make the best first impression for the growth and success of your business.  Brag a little to show off all of your talents and accomplishments.
