To DIY, or not to DIY, that is seriously the question. For real, I love DIYing shit. It’s how I got into web design in the first place. But there is definitely a point when you should hire someone who ACTUALLY knows what they’re doing. It can be hard to spend money on something you think you might be able to do on your own, but when it comes to your website, you have to remember a few things:
your website has the potential to make you a LOT of money - when it's done right
there are a lot of pieces to website building - SEO, design, copy writing, branding...
what else could you have done with that time you wasted trying to figure it out?
how much money did you lose not only wasting time figuring it out, but also creating a website that doesn’t do anything for your business anyway
your website is the main headquarters of your online presence. it matters.
I mean 88% of people do research online before making a purchase. It's no longer an option to have a website in this day in age, but it has to be more than just sit and look pretty.
It needs to put the work in. it needs to bring in viewers and convert them to paying clients. It needs to get found on Google. It needs to immerse people in your brand.
So, how can you tell if you should do that yourself or hire someone?
It’s time to hire someone to design your website if:
1. You’re spending too much time on the website
Think about all the things you could be doing for your business or for your life with that time. The one thing my clients always say is, "It's been so great to let you take care of the website while I focus on my business."
2. Your website isn’t bringing in the results you want
The only reason to have a website is to get results. If your website isn't doing that, it's time to level up. In business, there is no reward without investment. Outsource your website to an expert who will improve your design, maximize your copy, and slay your SEO.
3. You want to raise your prices
You can't raise your prices unless you raise you raise your offer and experience, and create more demand. With a professional website that brings in more viewers and helps you convert them to paying clients, you'll be able to charge the prices you want.
I have only ONE slot left for March, and then I'm opening my books for April onward.
If you want to level up and get a website that's the business partner you WISH you had, let's talk.
