DIY Websites vs. Marketing Agency
The thought that crosses many business owners minds, what is the value of a marketing agency? I can build a website myself for a fraction of the cost.
There are so many platforms out there screaming to get your attention, companies like Wix, promote a solid offering- build a professional website with no coding and for a few dollars a month! It almost seems too good to be true, right?
While this may be great for the pocket initially, it may end up hurting your business in the long run. Marketing is an important part of any business, it helps you not only gain new customers but also helps you build a brand.
