Designing a website, is it deceptively easy? Or surprisingly difficult? In a recent discussion with Sudipto Basu of One Cent At a Time, we discuss the pitfalls and learning curve of trying to design your own website. Whether it’s time, experience, or artistic inclination blocking the way, putting together a website demands a good deal of hands-on work. And if you want that site to look good and run well, it’s going to take even longer to get it just right.
Fortunately, you don’t have to pick up and master five new skill sets overnight. By outsourcing your web design to a team of professional designers, you can usually get your dream website for a fraction of the time and money you’d spend trying to sort it out solo. It’s just like painting your house. You could learn the techniques, buy the equipment, and spend a ton of trial and error time figuring out how to make it look right, or you could just hire someone.
If you’re starting a business or looking for a new website, you might be on the fence about designing your own. It’s not impossible, and you might learn plenty of skills along the way, but most people need a website sooner than they think. A good website can lead to more traffic, or more customers if it’s for your business.
