These days it's incredibly easy to set up a website - whether by yourself using one of the many 'free' builder systems or getting someone who does it on the 'cheap'.
I can often be heard saying that I am able to draw a stick figure, but just being able to do this doesnt make me a graphic designer (I leave that to Dawn!) which is basically what people are doing when they get their website done on the cheap.
Remember that whatever service you are paying for, its often not just the product that you are spending the money on but also the experience and knowledge that comes with years of providing a service and knowing the pitfalls that are always waiting for the unaware or the unwary!
So, next time you you need a new website or graphic design, ask yourself if the alleged 'free' is worth it - what are you going to have to do taking time out of your day find and understand what isnt getting done by the provider because they just don't know or understand the market place.
Will you be happy with a stick figure or would you prefer to hit the ground running with a little more flesh on the bones!?
Motley created the first website I had content managed and it was a very important one for our organisation. I found the journey from first ideas to end product surprisingly easy. My colleagues have found the results just what was needed. I have been able to make changes very easily and where I needed help, Motleyalways responded rapidly. Motley delivered on-time, on-budget and met our business needs. Not something I often say.Stephen Hocking from ITEAC
