Who Should You Hire to Build Your Website?

In this post, we’ll discuss the main options for who to hire when building your website.

Website Builders

There are a plethora of website builders that are easy to use and allow you to build website fast. Here’s a post on a full list of website builders you can chose from. The options range from free (with some caveats) to a few bucks a month for premium website builders such as Squarespace or Shopify if your focus is an ecommerce website builder.


  • Easy to use web builders
  • Easy to publish online fast


  • Can take a lot of your time figuring out the software
  • Lackluster customer support (sometimes). You’ll get stuck in endless chats with their support trying to figure things out
  • You don’t get someone to help guide you
  • You have to do-it-yourself

Local Web Designer

You might try your luck with finding a local website designer where you live. You can ask for referrals from people you know, or do a simple Google search for Web Designers Near Me.

Freelance Web Designer

Upwork.com is a great place to find a freelance web designer.

Web Design Agency

Working with an agency has its benefits. You can get a full team behind you to design your website rather than a single web designer. Not only will you get the design, but they’ll be able to give you more options when it comes to styles, features, and updates.

Marketing Agency

Marketing agencies can often design your website. It’s crucial that your website has a marketing impact, not just a pretty flyer on the internet. You need your website to bring you more customers and generate interest in your products and services. A marketing agency can help with that since most web designers aren’t focused on results, sales, and marketing.

So who should you hire to build your website?

If your budget allows, we always suggest hiring a web designer. Whether it’s freelance web designer or web design agency, it doesn’t matter. The time you’ll save by working with a professional is worth it. You should be focused on growing your business, not designing websites.
