Why do I need to hire someone to design my web site?
Fair question. With all the fancy software available you could design, set-up and manage your own site. But, then again, you could also sell your own house, write your own will and even defend yourself in court but it is unlikely that you would undertake these important tasks all on your own without bringing in a professional advisor.Sure, an off-the-shelf package will create a web site for you but there are some important considerations. You will have to know HTML in order to be able to manipulate the page to just how you want it. You will also find you'll need a professional graphics package to design and create your images. You'll have to learn about the different image formats, graphic techniques and how to reduce file sizes for quicker downloads. You'll have to learn about style-sheets, programming, search engines and how to promote your site. Then, when your site is finished, you'll have to know how to upload your site and manage your emails.To design and maintain your own site, you will have to learn the newest technologies available and obtain all the tools, software, hardware, skills and equipment necessary, then muster up some good ol' fashioned creativity, imagination and artistic ability. Some people just don't have the time or ability to take this on themselves. That is why we are here.
