DIY Website Design or Outsource?
Should you design your own website or hire an outsource company to do it for you? What 3 Questions should your website answer when people visit?
Website design is one of the most critical components of converting traffic once people arrive. Remember this, conversions are more important to work on than traffic. A well-designed website can help you accomplish that, but how do you make that happen?
If you have some graphic design ability you may move forward and design your own website, especially if you’re on a budget. However, if you do have a budget, at all, go out to Elance, Fiverr, or Odesk and hire a professional for a song and a dance.
An outsourcer from these 3 sources will help you answer the 3 questions you should answer immediately when someone visits your site. It’s critical for your view to know who you are, what you want them to do next, and why should they do it with you.
A good website design can help you do just that. After doing this on my own and trying to make it right and spending hours doing so, I would strongly recommend hiring someone to design your website for you unless you are a professional designer. It will make all the difference in your conversions to sales, and you won’t waste your valuable time trying to do it on your own.
3 Outsourcing Companies that are very reasonable are:
http://odesk.com Hourly rates are very affordable, and reviews are available here. http://elance.com Very similar to Odesk.
http://fiverr.com I recommend Fiverr for a custom header, optin forms, intro videos, and things like that.
Focus on what you do best whether it’s marketing your business, prospecting, or creating video content etc, and if your budget will allow, hire a good virtual assistant and make them a partner in your business.
Hope this helps, and if you have any suggestions on this or recommend someone out there please let me know in the comment section. Have a great week!
