Is it really worth spending money on creating a website? There are many free tools that anyone can use to create a professional-looking website.
Before thinking about spending money on creating a website, consider the following:
- It's very expensive to have a website created, especially if you're paying an hourly rate and not agreeing on a fixed price for the entire project.
- If changes need to be made to the website in the future, which is usually the case, you'll have to keep spending money.
- There are now very inexpensive service providers that can help you create and extend a website very easily, quickly, and satisfactorily by yourself, without having any basic technical knowledge.
- With any website, there is a risk that the project will not be successful and the money spent on its creation will have been in vain.
Unless you are planning something bigger and more complex with your website, in most cases, it is better to use available tools and services to create a website.
Basically, you don't need much to create a website:
- Domain + web hosting (Bluehost)
- Content management system (CMS)
- Time for creation
In many cases, a simple website builder is already enough to create a small website. Most providers offer hundreds of design templates that cover every topic and target audience.
If you still don't trust yourself to create a website, you can use any job board and post the website creation job there. The important thing is to come up with a detailed plan beforehand and have a clear idea of what you need.
If you consider that a web designer and programmer easily cost 30–50 dollars per hour, you will have to pay several thousand dollars for the creation of even a rather small website, plus regular updates and changes to the website.
