You may be thinking, I have a website "freebie" that I wake myself, why should I pay someone to do it for me? There are several reasons why I don't recommend "freebie" D.I.Y. website but even site "freebie" is better than no website at all. However, if you kinda understand the technology and have time to build your own web site, I strongly encourage you to at least use the WordPress theme with a professional and you pay for web hosting with a leading web host.

If you have a freebie site D.I.Y., ask yourself, does that give you the professional image you want for your brand? None the less professional than the online website that says "Hey, look, I use a free website maker!" Your business will gain credibility that much better by having a professional website designer that helps you design and build your web site.
