You can have a full-time developer if you can justify the cost. Depending on your location, the city and country that you are located in and the strength of the local labor market, having a full-time web-developer could be expensive for a small company. If you are a big company, you will not only have one but multiples, and you can justify it but if you are a small business, are you sure you can justify a full-time web-developer? If you can, nothing like it, go for it. But if you cannot, then what do you do?
People see those Ads on TV and say why don’t I do it myself. This seems easy. Many start but soon realize this takes time. That’s how you see so many unfinished websites around the internet. You may even build a simple website on your own, but soon you realize it requires maintenance, better security, and you have to keep up with changing technology. After a while you realize all this web stuff is taking you away from whatever you are good at and as a result your business is suffering.
Wouldn’t you be better off investing your time in a much better way? Let’s say you end up spending two hours a day on learning how to develop a simple website. Can that two hours be better utilized in doing what you know best? Let us say you are a hairdresser – in those two hours how many new clients can you service and send follow-up emails to . Let’s say you are an accountant, how many more accounts can you do in that, how many billable hours. If you are a mechanic, if you are a body shop, no matter what your business is. Lets say you are spending two hours a day. Can those two hours be billable hours? Can you do something more in those two hours that will give you more bang for the buck? Think about it.
Time is value – why waste your time?
Outsource web development to those who can do it better, after all, people give you their work. Whatever you are doing, maybe people can do it or figure it out by themselves. They give that job or work to you because they think you can do it better. Similarly, you should outsource if you think others can do it better and use your time where you think you get the biggest bang for the buck.
Our mantra is ‘Do what you do best and Outsource the rest – to us of course’
