"Why don't I make my own site on Wordpress for cheaper?"
It’s true that anyone willing to put in the time can create their own Wordpress site. But even after spending several weeks learning how themes and plugins work you will still have a long way to go. In my experience, most business owners would rather spend that time on their business, and pay a web designer the extra $75 to $150 a regular website would cost them. But don’t take my word for it, CLICK HERE for a google search of “how long does it take to learn Wordpress”.
"I am going to update my site often, wouldn’t it be better for me to learn Wordpress rather than pay a web designer for updates?”
As I stated previously, learning Wordpress will take several weeks to become an adequate user. Even then, it is likely you still won’t be able to make specific customizations to your site because to modify themes and plugins will require a solid knowledge base in PHP, HTML and CSS (web programming languages). But, if you are planning to make major changes to your site once a week or more, it might be worth the extra time to learn these things and use Wordpress rather than hiring a web designer. But again, don’t take my word for it. CLICK HERE for a short article on the time it takes to master Wordpress, written by Tom Mcfarlin, a software developer who specializes in Wordpress.
"OK, you convinced me not to build my own site with Wordpress. But why don’t I hire a company that specializes in Wordpress?"
The business plan for these companies is to pump out as many cheap, easy sites as possible. They don’t care if you are happy with how the site looks because they have your payment you made up front, and hundreds of other customers who just want to check the “I have a website” box. Also, most of these larger companies over charge, especially for a simple website for a small business. Sparkjoy is ranked #1 on google for “Wordpress design in Vancouver”, and their starting price is $1000. I encourage you to also do some research of your own.
