It’s ok to ask for help. We teach our children to do it. If you don’t know how to do something, ask for help. Pretty simple really, yet when it comes to things like websites, and social media, many people are hesitant.
There are different reasons. One sometimes is that all this stuff, you can essentially do yourself. If you know how, you can design your own logo, define your own brand, build your own website, perform your own social media work… None of this stuff requires thousands of dollars to do. It just requires expertise to do it well, and that expertise is what usually costs money, or time.
Think of it like cooking and food. A chef can go to the grocery store, buy $20 or less worth of food, and cook a mouth watering meal in less than an hour. Something astounding, depending on the chef, and something that too minutes to do, with very little in the way of tools. But that meal is the result of years of training, knowledge, and ability.
Your website is the same as that meal. The question is only “How good is that meal going to be?” if the person making it has no training?
Then there are the cookie cuttter solutions. Template solutions. One size fits all, just in slightly different looking packaging. You can go buy a frozen dinner, bring it home, throw it in the microwave, and voila…. Dinner. Certainly it’s an option, and it’s a better one (usually) than starving that night, but what if you’re trying to impress someone? What if you’re cooking for a date? Someone you want to impress and come back to see you again. Do you throw a couple microwaved dinners on the table, still in their convenient packaging and serving trays?
It’s ok if you don’t know how to build websites, or do your social media. It’s ok to ask someone for help. It’s ok to say “I don’t want one of those frozen dinner template websites.” because you want your “meal” to be better, different, even impressive, and so good that your date will come back for more.
