Hi all, I help small business owners build their own Wordpress websites. It's a really affordable option to get your business online, as well as give you the tools to take charge of your online marketing.

Asked this question - Web Development

Has anyone built their own website?

I would echo some of the comments above. Stick to Wordpress and use a theme like Divi - it has been developed specifically to allow non-techies build their own websites.

Doing it yourself also puts you in a great position for understanding what's going on behind the scenes, so when/if you outsource as your business grows, you'll have a really clear idea of what you're looking for in an assistant.

Is there an advantage to email over other online marketing channels?

Email marketing is a great marketing channel. It takes some time to build a list and gain their trust, but when you manage to do this, you're able to have a real, actionable conversation directly with people who are interested in your product or service. After all, they only signed up to your list because you offered something they found valuable!

As with any marketing, though, keeping the balance between offering real value and making sales, is key to making it work.
