Many local business owners find themselves asking the question, “Should I Hire a Professional Website Designer?” At the end of the day, we find that businesses find a lot of benefits of working through the website design process.
In this blog post, we explore some of the primary benefits businesses and organizations gain when hiring a professional website designer.
Read on to learn the four key benefits your business could leverage!
Reason to Hire a Professional Website Designer #1: Save Trial and Error Time
One of the primary reasons for hiring a professional website designer is that it saves years of trial and error.
When starting a new business or organization, it’s clear that time is everything. When you wear so many hats in a business, you often don’t have enough time to devote to your website, lead generation, and marketing efforts. This can lead to heavy time wasting, if you’re not careful.
With modern drag-and-drop website builders such as Weebly, Squarespace, Wix, and many others, anybody can start their own website. The process on these platforms is relatively simple, but often hides many downfalls that a user simply doesn’t know about.
With these drag-and-drop builders, we often experience the following problems:
- Lack of site optimization and SEO scores
- Lack of customization options, leading to branding difficulties
- Lack of integrations to the best plugins, add-ons, and features
- Many more!
In just a few months, you can have a ‘functional website’. But, this leaves much room for growth – although the world is rich with free content and education, do you have the time to soak it all in?

Why to Hire a Professional Website Designer #2: Specialization Leads to Success
A professional website designer is a key component to any effective business. When considering professional services, individuals already think of their business accountant and their business attorney. However their web developer can occasionally get pushed to the wayside.
By hiring a dedicated professional, you can rest assured that your business will receive the highest-quality services. Further, a professional website designer often carries many skills themselves. In our case for Valley Crossing Digital, our website developers are also proficient with content writing, new page development, social media management, analytics, and much more.
This well-rounded skill set allows a professional website developer to cover many angles that you may not have considered when starting your online journey.

Why to Hire a Professional Website Designer #3: Prepare for Future Growth
A professional website designer is able to set up your site for future growth. As website traffic begins to increase, you’ll have to adjust hosting plans and the way that your website functions internally to ensure a great user experience.
Further, a website encompasses many aspects of a business. As your business continues to grow, you’ll likely (or should!) expand into additional channels such as social media and email marketing.
A professional website designer ensures that all of these elements can be quickly tied in when you’re ready.

Reason to Hire a Professional Website Designer #4: There is a Return on Investment
Our fourth reason to hire a professional website designer is because you do see a return on the investment you make. We’ve already detailed how you save time, you have a specialist, and you’re ready for future growth, but what if we told you that you actually make your money back?
Similarly to how a great accountant makes you back their fee, a professional website designer does the same (if not more!). A well-designed website is more than just a functional site or a gallery for work. With a combination of excellent content writing, call to actions, and the right integrations, your leads will know the best actions to take.
Ultimately, this leads to more of your website visitors becoming paying customers or clients. Without a professional website designer, many visitors may simply check out your website and move on to the next one.
