With all of the do it yourself and bargain options out there, it may cross your mind why you even need a professional to do this website design stuff anyway. Here are a couple reasons why you should consider hiring a professional website designer.

You’ll save time and money getting it done right the first time.

Yes, we’re sure Suzie, your neighbor’s hairdresser’s daughter, can make web sites in her bedroom, and we understand that it can be really tempting to save some money. Who knows, she may be quite talented?

Statistically, you will save time and money by making sure you get it done right the first time. We have met many business owners who have called us in a panic because they paid Suzie money and she never delivered, they can’t find her for updates, or their site (and/or Suzie!) just plain disappeared.

Your website is your constant connection to the world, and your customers.

A professional website design is so important because it’s your company’s constant presence. A website is online 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for your customers to experience. It can’t be torn up, used as scratch paper, or discarded as junk mail. Nothing else offers that flexibility.

The cost of a professionally designed website is lower than other forms of marketing.

It can be tempting to cut costs or neglect your company’s need for a website design. But the truth is that your online presence is far too important to ignore. A website is your most powerful, cost-effective marketing tool available.

Radio Advertising Costs

An effective size campaign on a popular station could cost $500 per week in small town like Myrtle Beach, SC to $8,000 per week in a large city like New York. For your money, you could reasonably expect to get 20 commercials, with the majority of them airing during desirable times of the day.

Television Advertising Costs

Local television stations typically charge from $200 to $1,500 to create a 30-second commercial. National commercials produced by an advertising agency cost far more, averaging $342,000 for a 30-second spot in 2008, according to the American Association of Advertising Agencies.

Wordpress Website Design Costs

The cost for the customization of WordPress theme could range from $3,000-$6,000. If you want a custom WordPress design you can expect to pay $6,000-$15,000 for design and development. E-commerce/Online store websites range from $8,000-$20,000. Approximate monthly costs for domain registration ($2/mo), hosting ($10-30+/mo) and security & maintenance ($10-250+/mo).

It can support a print design campaign.

It’s also important to know that for a truly successful website you will often need to support it with an offline campaign. The reverse is also true. Putting an ad on television, in the local paper, or on a billboard without a website is a big mistake. You need to be able to send potential customers to a place where they can access more information about your company.
