As I web designer, I get this question a lot. Why should I pay you to make me a website, when I can do it myself with an online program such as WIx, Weebly, WordPress.com or SquareSpace?
It boils down to the following 4 resources
- Technical Knowledge (or your interest to learn to code/learn a new program—see #1. Time)
- Design Skills (or your willingness to learn design— see #1. Time)
Time + Design Skills + Tech Skills + Money = Website
Most people lack one or more of these 4 resources and are not willing to use their time to learn design skills or tech skills.
Often time, many people focus on money and how much something costs, which doesn’t focus on the bigger picture. Money is actually the most flexible option because your time is finite and what you choose to do with your time is finite.
