Do it yourself website builders like SquareSpace are great tools to get a new site up and running in a jiff without needing any programming experience. But fine tuning their templates to look just like they do in the commercials is another matter. It does require some degree of programming knowledge and design experience if you want your site to really shine and convert as many of your visitors into actual customers.
If you want the job done right, consider the following questions before spending countless hours spinning your wheels:
- Do you have the time to complete the project yourself?
- Do you want to learn the elements necessary to complete the project yourself?
- Will you really save money doing it yourself if you think about the number of hours you’ll have to invest?
In summary, while you may be tempted to tackle Squarespace on your own, you want to make sure the job is done right the first time.
