Why Should I Hire a Professional Web Designer?


Well, to tell you the truth, there are many reasons to hire a professional but there are
Your nephew might know computer games
but that doesn't make him a web designer.
times that you can settle with a DIY website. But avoid your geeky nephew that can throw up that a bargain website. Unless he is a professional, that is one situation I suggest you avoid.

Companies need a web presence. They need to have their information available to their customers such as products, services, hours, contact information, ordering, menus, specials, and much more. With a simple site, this might be workable on your own. There is no doubt that software and websites with templates and stock images makes it much easier today than even just a few years ago.  But if it is too much, call a professional.   If you are looking at e-commerce, call a professional. If you want custom features, call a professional. Just my suggestion.

You might also consider just doing a consultation with a designer. They might be able to help you organize your site plan and make sure you are marketing yourself online appropriately. A few dollars spent up front could save you considerable headaches in the future.

As a small business owner, I know that spending time on building a website will take the owner away from other important aspects of  their business. You might be surprised at the cost of a basic website even from a designer. Look at their work, ask their other customers and talk to them about your ideas. Their experience and expertise just might make the difference between success and frustration. :)
