Web Design – Hire a Pro Or Do it Yourself?

By Mark A. Abrahams

You know you need a website but you can't decide if you want to do it yourself or a hire a professional. On one hand, you're pretty good with the internet. On the other hand, websites take a lot of maintenance. Here is a list of pros and cons for doing your own web design and hiring someone else.

When it comes to doing your web design yourself, there are some advantages. They include:

You'll save money. No big bucks shelled out to someone else.

You know what you want. You won't have to describe your vision to someone else.

Most hosting companies have templates that are easy to use. You can be up and running in minutes.

Disadvantages include:

Trying to figure out HTML, Java, and a host of other things can be frustrating.

Having a site that looks amateurish in a world where professionalism reins.

Lack of time to work on your web design.

Calling in a professional also has its pros and cons. Some advantages are:

You won't have to figure any of it out yourself.

A good pro can have it done quickly.

A professional looking page that attracts traffic and looks great.

Disadvantages exist as well. They are:

Professionals can charge a lot of money.

You don't know when they will be able to get to you.

If your website experiences problems, will you be able to get in touch with them?

At the end of the day, it is a personal choice. However, if money is an issue, you might want to try a template first. If you're not happy with the results, or if you decide that you really don't have the time to spend on it, you might want to get a quote from a professional.
