A lot of online business owners start with no money. They have to do everything themselves — the preparation of a product, the development of a marketing strategy, the actual building of a website to cater to their product’s marketing needs. As their business expands over time, they will find that their simple “homemade” site might not be enough to cover everything, and they will have to take a day or two away to simply dedicate that to the website expansion.
Sounds familiar? Chances are, you’re someone who started everything with no money too, so you’re pretty skeptical when it comes to giving away your money in exchange for something that you could have done yourself. However, there is a lot more to hiring a designer than just finishing up a job that you don’t want to do.
When you hire a web designer or a programmer to do your job for you, you are doing more than just handing over the “dirty job” to someone else. In fact, by paying a little money, you can let the designer/programmer worry about the little annoyances that always evade the main picture and only come haunting when you’re halfway through the job. That way, you will be more focused and have more time to spend on your actual business strategy.
I remember a client who was almost about to give up after learning the kind of work that is required with having an online business. After having some challenges with his website, server, and other technical aspects, this internet newbie was about to throw in the towel! Good thing he found me later because this allowed him to concentrate on what he knew best (he owned a local business) and leave the headaches of the technical aspects of an online business for me to handle.
Remember that the designers/programmers you hire are professionals, so they are good at what they do. By outsourcing your web design/programming jobs to them, you won’t have to worry when problems surface because you can always get them to fix it for you. Again, they will be able to pin point the problem and fix it faster than you probably will be able to. Also, the work you pay for will turn out more professional than what you can achieve because the designers/programmers have been doing it longer than you have. After all, they do it for a living so they have to be good, right?
A past client spent an entire week trying to fix a problem with her WordPress blog. After contacting me, the problem was resolved within a few hours. Imagine what she could have done instead with the time she had lost! If only she outsourced the work earlier!
I know that it is good to work on a project yourself. However, you have to consider the instances when outsourcing the work to someone else is beneficial in your situation.
