When to DIY your website

posted by 5 years ago and updated 5 years ago

These days there are so many different tools to build a website. There are websites that help you build websites. I am sure you have found them already. Building your own website is not a myth but it could be a big mistake for your business.

Is it worth it to build your website with such tools or do you need something more sophisticated? The answer of course is that it depends on your needs. For any web project you need to understand your needs. Creating a website is much like buying a car. Do you want to boast around in a super car, do you need a pick up truck to do your work or do you need an SUV?

What are you trying to build? How much customisation will you require. DIY might make sense for a small size web site but if you are trying to build a large project then it's a whole different story.
