Hire a Webmaster/web designer or Design my Website Myself?

The problem with building your own website is not knowing the webmaster ropes!
Your looking at instant internet failure!

This happens when anyone that doesn’t have the proper skills to properly design and market a website, so you have to ask yourself Do I build it myself? Or Hire a Webmaster?

Lets take a look at pros and cons of building it yourself vs hiring a webmaster.

1. Time vs Cost

The first thing to think about is how much is your time worth as a business owner? If the answer is more than it costs to learn basic html, css and web design and implement a website (which would take about 3-6 months) depending on your learning curve, then it would not be worth the hassle.

2. Marketing and SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

When you hire a professional webmaster, it takes your business to the next level of “set it and forget it” let the webmaster handle everything from design, coding in your favorite social networks with custom backgrounds, setting up the domain and hosting, setting up the email accounts and completely filling out all the information for you, keeping track of updates and backing up your website regularly incase of a hacker attack. All these things the webmaster does will allow you to concentrate on what you do best to make money and run your business.

3. Communication

A good webmaster will always be in constant communication with you and coming up with new ideas to market your BRAND! If you tried to do this yourself, not only would it would take longer for you to do it as your probably not an expert with social networks and how to effectively use them.

4. Branding and Niche Marketing

Niche and branding is essential for growth of your business. A business owner would probably not be interested in spending hours on the computer for days trying to “Get His Brand Out”.

5. The look and Feel of a website…

More importantly the look and feel of your website will be greatly enhanced using a professional webmaster rather than attempting to do the graphics in paint 🙁 .

6. Webmaster VS Web Designer..Whats the difference?

The biggest mistake people make is when they hire a web designer
Folks, A webmaster knows every aspect of the “Internet” as a whole. Strong in skills like Graphic Design, PHP, SQL, CMS, HTML, CSS as well as social networking skills incorporating SEO as leverage to rank high in the search engines niche consulting you name it he knows it all.
A web designer on the other hand will only be proficient in code and development but NOT SEO or Marketing which is the foundation for success on the NET.

In Conclusion

When it comes to doing it yourself vs hiring a webmaster, you have to think “Will i study Auto Repair to repair my car?” or Study Dentistry to fix my own teeth? then why not hire a professional?
Whatever you decide, consider the entire project as a whole. The most important thing to keep in mind is making a solid decision that will make sense for you and your businesses online presence!
Doing it yourself is a great way to save money but it’s only worth it if you know what you’re doing, and most don’t. So in the end what matters is that your end product can be found easily in the search engines, Properly setup, is pleasing to the eye and the site converts into sales.

Would you build your own website? Or Hire a Webmaster/Web designer?
