Do you design/build a website by yourself, or instead you hire a designer to do the job for you

11 replies
Hey forum members, I hope all of you are doing well!

So I have one question that I'm curious about; This question applies to your personal choicement, nothing crucial for SEO. So I'm interested in this: do you design/build your site or client's by yourself our you hire designers to do that for you?

Personally, I hire wordpress designers on fiver, so I don't waste my time.
At the start of my SEO carrier, I build my sites on my own; now, when I'm on a much better budget, I pay others to do for me because I can save a lot of time and invest that time in SEO.

What are your thoughts bout this? Let me know!

    I always have a web designer do the hjard yards for me so that I can focus on the SEO aspect of web work. Building sites and doing SEO at the same time is very time consuming

      I completely agree with you, doing the both is super hard.

    I can do on my own, and loving it, no one can do better than I can do for me. Having less experience in day to day marketing rather then in development, to be honest...

    However, when it come to hiring I seriously check two things:

    1. AGE. The real biological age of the developer (or of a whole squad) BECAUSE the youngsters missed a whole epoch and they simply cannot make as solid as a mastodon can perform, but they offer other benefits!! Example? Using a whole JS lib for a single operation, and for this I take an old one. But using a whole lib in full, I'll look for a younger one... Speed is everything.

    2. GEO, I carefully choose the region. This is a RELATIVELY NEW industry (comparing to farming, gold smithing or any other offline craft)... So, the development went different ways and there is a kinda "mass historical knowledge" so to say, over the regions. Example? Microsoft (reportedly) influenced piracy market in Eastern Europe, these people are universal as they had all tools for free, not paying a penny for Photoshop when other paid 3k for a license. Another one: SE Asia lacks Unity experience as a Unity's annual fee is 10% of an avg family budget, iOS was banned in China for long as a policy, maybe a wrong idea to hire Chinese company for iOS, etc, etc.

    That's a too personal feeling, I know. Yet it somewhat works for me.

    I design and make my own websites. Very simple for me and I know everything about my sites and can change something with just a few clicks, usually.

    As much as I would love to completely outsource it is more of a combo I think.

    Will a Designer know about Copy that Converts?

    Site Security?

    Page Speed?

    Full Sales Funnels?

    The language my audience speaks?

    Back-linking and Guest Posts?

    What would be appealing to an investor that was looking to buy established websites?

      When it comes to my judgment about hiring the web designer, it comes to this:

      Will a Designer know about Copy that Converts?- Yeah, they must know to copy and convert; that's essential.

      Site Security?- Hell yeah, security must be on the highest level.

      Page Speed?- That's on me; I usually take care of that

      Full Sales Funnels?- The same as previous, this thing is on me

      The language my audience speaks?-I usually make ENG sites, so the language is no problem at all.

      Back-linking and Guest Posts?-That's my personal SEO strategy; I take care of those things.

      What would be appealing to an investor looking to buy established websites- Honestly, the niche is most important; after that, it comes to traffic and the place in SERP for the various keywords. The same applies to me; without good metrics levels, I won't invest in any site.

      Completely agree with you; most of newbies focus on the appearance, but not at the SEO, which is big problem for them...

    Very first, I hope all of you are doing well . I want to share that, If you are experienced to build a website so you can do it but If you have no idea to build a website so very most important things you will have to keep in your mind while building a website . Are you a web developer and designer ? Are you an experienced Graphic Designer ? Do You have experience of content writing and while building a website can do proper SEO according to any search engine browser algorithm ? If you need a good website so team work is the most important and play a vital role to build a professional business website .
