Stuck? When Should You Hire a Web Designer?

May 28, 2021

If you have spent time working on a website, you have probably hit a wall that felt insurmountable. It doesn’t matter if it is Squarespace, Wix, WordPress, or something else entirely – there is a limit to your knowledge if you aren’t an expert. 

At The Sky Floor, we are experts in all things web. After all, it is our day job. In our experience, here are a few signs you are ready to hire a web designer:

  • You can’t bring your vision to life.
  • You have bigger things to deal with; you use up large chunks of time managing your website.
  • You aren’t getting the returns you want, whether that is leads or sales. 

You can’t bring your vision to life.

If you have sat at your computer for hours, only to hate what you made on your website, it might be time to hire a professional. It can be easy to feel like you are saving resources by not outsourcing this vital part of your business presence, but in the end, it won’t pay off. 

There are hundreds of components to an effective website, and the chances of you being able to understand them all properly is relatively low. Please leave it to the experts! 

Cue the segue. If you have spent way too many hours staring at your website:

You have bigger things to deal with.

The plain truth is, managing your website takes you away from work only you can do. That isn’t going to be the best use of your time and resources. 

We run into this one constantly. A business owner who runs a multi-million dollar business trying to edit and change their website. You can always be doing something else that a web designer would be terrible at – like engineering your next product. 

It is a waste of your valuable time managing your website day in and day out. We can’t run your business, but we can take the pressure off of your website responsibilities. Hiring a web designer will free you up to grow your business in ways that an outsider never could. But an outsider undoubtedly can help you create and maintain an effective website – we know because we do it every day. 

Your website doesn’t seem to be performing.

Maybe you have read all the help articles, YouTube videos, and books the world has to offer, but you still aren’t getting the leads and sales online that you want. It might be time to hire an expert! 

You might have tried everything under the sun. Perhaps even the same techniques the expert you bring in will try, but an experienced collaborator can unlock new potential using the same or similar methods. 

Turn your website into a powerful tool. The tool you imagined it could be when you first bought that Squarespace subscription. Look for a professional to help.

Maybe you have someone on staff already who can do updates and minor work. Still, you can hire an outside expert to consult and create a plan to reach your goals. It doesn’t have to be a full-time commitment.

Great, another sales pitch disguised as a blog.

Look, you don’t have to hire The Sky Floor because you are reading this. It isn’t a sales pitch for us. But it is a sales pitch to utilize experts to grow your business. Once you do, here are some reasons to let them get to work and do their jobs.

Don’t hold yourself back by trying to do it all. 

A person wearing 5 or 6 hats in real life would look ridiculous – don’t stack the proverbial hats too high when it comes to running your business! They all might fall off in the end.
