PTPA!

 

Hi all! I’m an entrepreneur who’s planning to build a website for my small business. I know a little bit about designing, but I can’t guarantee to give all of my time building an online site. Is it better to make my own website or leave the work to the professionals? Please share your thoughts.

General rule of thumb is to hire someone when web design isn't one of your core competencies and your end goal is a single site that works well rather than improving your skills for fun and/or profit.

Or maybe do your research and learn how to do it, since you can save some money and do it by yourself. At least that's what I am doing or at least trying, we will see how it goes.

Find a friend who is a developer and ask him to code your website is a better choice - I thought.

So, I came across this article and I think it will help you make up your mind. It goes into more detail about the advantages and disadvantages of free website builders. https://www.1and1.co...-pros-and-cons/ Overall, I think using a free website builder is very attractive and since you don't have prior knowledge of programming or web design it will make your life easier. However, you need to let your site evolve as your knowledge and site visitors grow. So, I will suggest starting with a free website builder, and once you get the hang of things you can switch to a subscription-based one. This will give you time to find your strong suit and will stop you from losing money on the way. Good luck! :)
