Excitement fills the room as you and your business partners have just launched an aggressive marketing campaign to drive traffic to your website. Two days later you realize that your website has been down for an extended period of time and you don't know why. Your heart rate begins to race as you start to panic, realizing you have invested countless hours and thousands of dollars on marketing and building your own website. Now what? Time is a non-renewable resource, and the decision you face is to either try and fix it yourself or hire someone to fix it for you.
This is an example of what many startup entrepreneurs experience every week. What's even more frustrating is having to deal with the bad PR of launching a marketing campaign with a website that's down due to some technical issue you weren't aware of until it was too late. There's no way of telling how many potential customers lost interest when they tried to visit your website.
You've probably seen the commercials on TV for Godaddy and how easy it is to build a custom website. That may be true for the most part, yet there are a few reasons why you should consider having someone do it for you.
For starters, as a startup, your time is extremely valuable. On average, it can take several weeks to a few months to build and launch a website from scratch. That's assuming nothing goes awry.
As an entrepreneur, your most important tasks are to connect with people, customers, employees, partners, and your local community. You're responsible for sharing your vision and inspiring the people around you, as well as making sure your business runs smoothly. You need to keep your mind clear and focused, so when challenges arise, you are present and able to deal with them appropriately. Adding the burden of building and maintaining a website is something you can't afford time-wise, nor energy-wise.
