4 min read
If you’re looking for a new website for your business, then the chances are you’ve probably been give some eye-watering quotes for web design services.
Even a simple redesign of your site, without any significant content changes, can set you back a small fortune. All of which can leave you tempted to try and do it yourself. But is going it alone really a good decision in terms of both your time and money?
You’ve probably seen or heard an advert for website platform sites that make promises about being able to make your own professional looking site in no time. Choose your template, upload your content, click ‘publish’ and you’ve got a brand new site. If only it were that easy. But the reality is a little different.
Web design is a complex skill based on a wide variety of factors, such as graphic design, psychology, creativity, coding and more. People gain degrees in web design or spend years in creative companies learning how to do it well. So it’s not surprising that the websites you can knock up yourself never quite look as good. That’s not to say that the web platforms such as Wix, Squarespace, GoDaddy and WordPress aren’t useful tools. Many professional web designers even use these sites as the starting point for their own work. But it takes a lot of skill and practice to use these platform sites in the right way.
In order to be able to create a professional level website you’d need to spend hundreds of hours getting to grips with the ins and outs of the design process. Which is all time that you should be spending focusing on your business. And if you add in the additional time it would take to code your own site from scratch, then it starts to look like a very poor financial decision.
However, all of this doesn’t mean that you should just suck it up and pay the exorbitant prices charged by some web design companies.
