Creating your own website is a great way to save money when starting a new business. However, at some point you may find that your website isn’t doing it’s job and it could actually be hurting your business.
How do you know when it’s the right time to hire a professional website designer?
I’m going to share the three clear signs that you’re ready to uplevel your website by hiring a pro.
Do you cringe at the thought of someone seeing your website? If you know your website is giving people a bad impression of your business, it’s time to hire a professional designer ASAP.
A while back I had a client who’s website was so bad, she told me she would just send people to her Instagram account instead of letting them see her website. While this seemed like a good solution at the moment, my client was actually losing business for two reasons:
If this sounds like you, then it’s time to hire a professional designer to help create a website you can be proud of!
If the idea of making an update to your website sends shivers down your spine, it’s time to hand over the job to a professional designer. Avoiding updating your website will only lead to bigger problems down the road – so why not face it now with some help from an expert?

Stop right there!
Making the excuse that your website doesn’t do anything for your business, is exactly the reason you should consider professional help for your business website.
If your website hasn’t brought you a single lead, you’re missing out on business and there’s a serious problem that needs to be addressed.
A professional website designer will not only help make sure that your website is attractive and functional, but that it effortlessly guides your client through your website and prompts them to contact you at the exact right moment.
Once you’ve decided to hire a website designer to create your new website, you’ll want to consider these three things:
Begin by asking other business owner’s whose website you admire who they hired to create their website. You can also look for website designers on Google as well as Pinterest and Instagram. Carefully look at their portfolio and read their testimonials from their clients.
