Website Development – Do It Yourself

In the old days –really not so long ago- if you wanted to get a website designed and developed you had to hire a website development company. Well you still can if you need to, but with all the resources and tool currently available there is no reason that you can’t develop you own website that looks as good as the pros.

Many of the web hosting companies that are out there today offer free software that makes putting together a snazzy looking website as easy as one, two, three….literally. They actually take you step by step and help you with your website development.

Take for example Yahoo Sitebuilder. This is free when you use Yahoo Small Business to host your website. Sitebuilder takes you through the process of first choosing a template for your website’s pages and shows you where to plug in text, pictures, and anything else you want to have on your website. And this is merely one example that I thought of off the top of my head.

Why do it yourself? Just as in auto repair or mowing your lawn, if you do it yourself, you save money. This can be a wonderful thing when you are first starting your small business as you will need all the money you can get and you know as well as I do that you will find something related to your business to spend the savings on.

As your business gets bigger you can either change up your site as you go or hire someone down the road if you find yourself not having the time for it. But when you first start out, there is no reason why you shouldn’t do your own website development.
