A lot of local businesses are often confused when it comes to technology, including starting their own website. Do you need to hire a web designer or developer? The infographic below will illustrate and answer just that. But before moving onto the infographic, let me offer you a little advice on how to get the best price, despite who you choose:
1. Choose Your CMS Wisely – As the infographic will illustrate, I recommend WordPress for this as 20%+ of the web is built on WordPress, and as such there are many tutorials across the web that can help non-tech savvy people navigate through WordPress.
2. Start Small – Avoid large deposits, I’ve seen too many businesses burned by this. Work with milestones, releasing payments when each milestone is finished (eg. Install WordPress Theme Demo).
