DIY Websites ... the best thing since sliced bread, or the bane of your brand?

When you first start out in business, it’s quite easy to fall into the trap of wanting to do everything yourself to save money. The problem with this thinking is that you’re actually losing money by doing everything yourself because you can’t possibly be an expert at everything. And if you’re busy doing behind-the-scenes tasks for your business, then you’re taking your focus away from your clients and other money-making tasks. Let's face it - it’s time to outsource to the pros.

A website is usually one of the first tasks that people think is easy to do themselves. Between drag-and-drop website builders and easy-to-learn WordPress, it’s a common perception that building a website is nothing more than throwing a bit of text and a few images on a page. But in reality, without the super-power combination of perfectionism and artistic talent that web designers possess, the website will look elementary and be lacking the great user experience required to retain visitors. There is a lot more to a website than meets the eye, and many people don't realise this until the damage is done.

Your website is very often the first point of contact that people have with your business. Do you really want a poorly designed website to be the first impression people get? Like it or not, people will judge your business based on your website; and one glimpse might even prevent visitors from calling you.
