Building a website can be time consuming if coded by hand or it can be done fairly quick if using one of those websites that help you get a site set-up with a few clicks through the questions. For highly skilled computer users, its not too difficult to learn how to set up a website. Although, if you are challenged with using a computer, building a website may not be easy and hiring a designer may be your best option. Something to consider when making this decision is to determine if your time is best spent running your business or learning.
