Every year, the technology for individuals with no previous training to design their website gets a little more accessible and user-friendly. The advertising for them claims that you can have a website up and running in mere minutes, and with relatively little effort. But is that the truth?
There is no doubt that you could potentially do this. It is more a question of experience and the amount of time that you’re willing to invest.
It is a bit of a stereotype that contractors are by and large good with their hands and not good with computers. We know that this isn’t always the case but as a contractor, what is your strength? Is it designing and marketing? If you answered yes, then you are truly multi-talented, or you are in the wrong business. Just as you counsel your customers to let the professionals take care of home repair, you’re usually better off getting a professional web designer to take care of your website design.
The difference is probably that of you designing a good or sufficient website and a professional designing an absolutely stellar website. If you want to put your best foot forward, would you choose good enough or absolutely stellar?
And the plain truth is that you have better things to do. The time that you would spend tinkering with web design platforms that you may or may not understand, you could be out doing a job that will easily pay for a professional to handle it for you.
If this is all starting to add up, then you should take a look at the comprehensive contractor web design and marketing offered by Happy Contractor.
