What is the difference between DIY and professional development


It is easy to understand why building your own DIY website can be tempting. Professional web development isn’t cheap. Independent business people and entrepreneurs are ingenious folk. The nature of the business means we do it all. And what can be handled in house we do. I mean, what’s the difference? If you can do it yourself, why not, right?

Sorry. Not true. If you are serious about your website, DIY is rarely the way to go.

Consider the services of doctors, lawyers, and accountants. There are some things you can do on your own: bandage a wound, pay a ticket, or file a quarterly tax return. But there are bigger projects that you just wouldn’t take on. There are things that are just too important to your health and your business to risk by trying to save a couple of bucks. You wouldn’t DIY surgery. You wouldn’t DIY criminal defense. If you’re serious about your business, we do not recommend a DIY website either.

And that’s how we see our role. We want to build websites our clients can update and maintain themselves, if they wish. We handle the larger, more complicated tasks, and they can spend their time doing what they do best. When new requirements are introduced to the industry, we let you know so you can choose how best to adapt.

Why a DIY website might not be the best choice for you

Concentrate on the things you do best. Build your business, nurture your customers and your staff, focus on the things you love to do and that you can have the biggest impact on. Leave the website to the professionals and your money will be better spent, your business improved and your life easier.
