Have you ever tailored your own suit to save a quick buck? No? That’s because you would be crazy to stitch up an article of clothing worth hundreds of dollars. Furthermore, not using a tailor at all would be just as irresponsible of a decision; that department store jacket with too-long arms and a saggy back will never look as sharp as one that is custom-fit. Just as that suit is how you present yourself in meetings with possible investors; your website is how you present your company and brand to the public. Designing a website without any experience or using a cookie-cutter template will never suffice for representing your business on the internet.
Professionals lay the foundation for your home, represent your business in legal matters, repair your car, and provide childcare for your family. Perhaps you have the ability to do these services for yourself, but you are simply too busy. Or maybe you lack the necessary skills, and you hire professionals to compensate for that. Either way, you rely on professional services to provide skills and expertise in the matters most important to you. Web design is no different from these services because only the professionals can provide the quality service necessary to properly brand your website.
