Would You Build Your Own Car?
It’s a strange thought, isn’t it? Personally, I wouldn’t know where to start! There are so many little details and considerations that go into all the moving parts that make up an automobile.
That being said, even if someone gave me a DIY car kit and told me that all I had to do was add the steering wheel, seats, “Hello Kitty” seatbelts, awesome new headlights, and all the little flourishes that made me “me”, would it even be roadworthy?
Sounds pretty risky, and the RAC would probably laugh at me.
Wait, what’s this got to do with the web?
Right, yes, sorry.
The risk involved with building your own car is similar (I suppose) to building a website.
You could build your own website using any number of web builders these days, but is that what you do for a living? Do you know all the little pitfalls related to security, usability, accessibility, browser (in)compatibility, CSS, HTML, PHP, <include excruciatingly long list of buzzwords and terms here>…
No? I’m not a betting man, but I would wager that what you’re best at is running your business, and helping your customers. If you start devoting valuable time to building a website, have you compromised time you could’ve spent on other parts of your business?
What do you value more?
Most business people we work with value time more than money. They want to know they’re getting a quality product, but they’re willing to pay specialists like us because we know what we’re doing and it will save them time.
At Cybera Digital, we have over 50 years combined knowledge in designing, marketing, and developing web solutions focused on solving digital business problems.
Still, a lot of our clients like to exercise their creative flair, and don’t often know how to express themselves verbally to designers.
We used to get feedback like, “I’ll know it when I see it”, and statements like this can make meaningful progress difficult.
Our new unique process encourages our customers to express themselves and work collaboratively with us to design and deliver solutions that align their brand with their customers and business goals.
The solution may not end up being what they initially envisaged, but as a team we develop an understanding of what their customers’ needs are, and most importantly, design solutions that connect effectively with what their customers want to achieve.
For best results…
Like I said, I’m not a betting man. I’m not going to risk the safety of my family by building my own car.
I know diddly squat about cars. Mine is… well, white, but my team and I sure know a thing or two about designing and building effective websites.
If you feel confident enough to spend potentially countless hours building your company’s website, then by all means feel free.
Similarly, if you value your money over your time, then the cheapest and dirtiest option is probably for you. You could certainly try your luck with a cheap overseas developer, or a service like Fiverr.
On the other hand, if you’d rather be spending your time building your business, give us a call and we can chat about ways we can help you achieve your goals.
It’s what we do.
