Should I hire someone to make my website?

Building a website yourself or hiring someone is a decision you may be pondering. There is no right or wrong answer to this but here are the three important points to consider before you decide.

1. Time

First, consider your time. Do you have the time to build your own website? How much time are you will to commit in making your website?

Some of us know how to build a website or buy website platform that build websites. In other words, building a website and having the time to build a website is different so be realistic with your availability.

Even if you hire someone to do the website for you, prepare to budget time to manage the project. This may require copywriting, revisions and gathering media files like photos and videos.

2. Money

The second point is money. Are there funds to hire help? If there’s none, the decision on how to proceed may be determined by this point alone. Also, if branding is critical maybe you can’t afford a site that isn’t top-notch. If that is the case, it may be time to interview web designers.

3. Expertise

Finally, the last one thing to consider whether to build your own website or hire help is expertise. If you have the expertise and confidence to tackle all your website management, great! But if you don’t, hiring a professional could get the job done on time and on budget.

Do note that I use the word professional because not everybody who calls themselves a developer may have the expertise to get the job done right. In other words, do your research, see their portfolio and references, and talk to other candidates before you choose.

In conclusion, choosing base on time, money, and expertise are important decisions that will help you critically evaluate what works best for you and your business.
