How to Know When You Need a Charlotte Web Designer

computer -- nc web design company

You’ll notice the title of this post is “how” to know when you need a Charlotte web designer, not “if.” That’s because invariably, you’ll need professional help.

We at Web Symphonies don’t mind a little DIY. We’ve written about Wix, Squarespace, and WordPress. Templates are great! But with Wix and Squarespace, there’s only so much you can do. Your website will look similar to all the other Wix and Squarespace websites, which is fine if you don’t mind that. But how many hours are you willing to spend on building the website? Will it do all the things you want it to do?

WordPress has more customization and often people use website builders like Elementor, Thesis, and Beaver Builder. They, too, make building websites easier. Supposedly, anyway. The reality is each of these templates and website builders comes with a steep learning curve. You will have to spend hours watching tutorials, playing around, and making mistakes. Are you willing to put in that much time? If you are, great, but let’s be real – it’s so much easier to hire a professional. A  Charlotte web designer designs websites all the time. They/we are experts at it and do things much more quickly than a novice.

So that’s the first point at which you know you need to hire a Charlotte web developer – when your time is precious and you don’t want to spend hours and hours researching how to make a picture go where you want it to go. It seems like it should be as easy as dragging and dropping, but it’s rarely that easy, which leads me to my next point.

The second point at which you know you need a Charlotte web designer is when you run into a problem. Let’s say you’re moving and grooving on the template. You’ve figured out how to make columns, you know how to add text. Everything is working! You’re thrilled at your prowess! And then … the website isn’t doing what you want it to be doing. There’s white space beneath the footer even though you didn’t touch the footer. The page title is too close to the header and you can’t add space even though you keep clicking “spacer” on the website builder. You keep trying and things keep not working.

You’re frustrated, you’re baffled, and your website looks … not great. You want to fix the problem but the how-to videos keep giving you the runaround. They keep saying, “Just do this” and the problem is you can’t “just do this.” Or you don’t even know how to describe what’s wrong. How can you solve a problem if you can’t name it?

You could keep tearing your hair out. You could keep playing around and perhaps make things worse, OR you could hire a professional Charlotte web designer. A company that’s been around for ages and knows exactly how to fix the problem of weird extra white space at the bottom of the footer, or a title page that’s too close to the heading. This is the beauty of working with a professional – you can talk to them and they can help you. The problem is solved.

The problem is solved! You don’t have to keep agonizing about the weird little thing your website is doing that you don’t want it to do! Your website looks great, and you have expert Website Design Charlotte! Doesn’t that sound nice? Don’t you want that?

I know some people are concerned about price and that’s why they like doing things themselves. No shade! We’re fans of that too. But we’re also smart enough to realize sometimes it’s worth it to call a professional. That frees you up to do the things you’re actually good at, not the things you’re proficient at. Here’s a little story from The Big Leap to chew on before I leave you:

A high-powered business consultant spent a frustrating weekend installing a new $1K printer at his home. He spent four hours on the phone with technical support and nine trying to figure things out on his own. For context, he charges $1K an hour for executive coaching. So if we’re going by his hourly rate, basically he spent $13,000 trying to install a $1,000 printer. Plus, he got into a fight with his wife about how long installing the printer took. In the end, he didn’t even figure it out and paid a college kid to install the printer for him. He was trying to save a few bucks but “saving a few bucks” instead turned into a costly mistake that ate up his time. You don’t have to make the same mistake.
