Ways a Website is Like a House: Are You Ready to Build?

While there are many homes on the market, there’s nothing quite like building your own custom home. You get to make the decisions – ALL the decisions. From what material to use for the foundation, to the height of the ceilings, or whether the bathroom faucet will have one handle or two, your opinion counts.

Are you ready for that? Do you know enough to make those decisions? Do you care enough to bother with them? Do you have the time to devote to researching and making those choices? Are you ready to accept responsibility and consequences of those decisions?

Whether you go for a custom build, a move-in ready existing home, a fixer-upper, or a DIY adventure depends on your expertise, skill, interest, time, and budget. There’s no one “right” solution.

The same applies to websites. A custom build will take time and money, but it will be built to match your wants and needs and be built to last. Or you can work with existing themes and plugins to get something that will suit just fine in much quicker time frame. You can go the DIY route too, if you’ve got the time, interest, and skills and want that experience.

straightTALK: Custom, move-in, fixer-upper, or DIY.  Whether a home or a website, each choice comes with expertise, skill, time and money trade-offs.
