A web presence is a hugely important thing for a business, but it doesn’t have to be sparkly and professionally designed from the start. I have something to say this week that may seem odd, coming from a web designer. It may go against popular belief in the business world, but occasionally I like to rebel a little.
Contrary to what is popular advice in many areas of the Internet, a business owner absolutely does not need a professionally designed website from the start. When you’re just starting out, you don’t need a website with all the bells and whistles. That’s a huge financial investment, and I believe there are better ways to spend your money (or actually not spend it at all and keep it for yourself!)
