A Friendly Reminder That it’s your Website.
There has been something that has been bothering me a lot, and I feel a very strong need to address it officially to my community.
Here are some thoughts I have about other designers who disappear or tell them they need to switch to WordPress, or convinces them to make a huge investment when it may not really be needed yet.
It’s not that these designers are bad or they don’t know what they are doing. They are just giving their opinion. Personally, I prefer to simply explain all the options and let my clients decide what is best for them
Just a few days, I was speaking to a new client about how frustrated she was over her developer telling her she needs to move to WordPress ASAP, and how she just wasn’t sure if she should do it or not.
She kept going on about how she loved her website and was so happy with it.
Now, I have nothing but respect for this developer, but I disagree with that move. Now, let me explain why…
A Friendly Reminder That it’s your Website
My thoughts about making ccccvbbig moves to your website
First, a disclaimer:
I feel that there’s definitely nothing wrong with updating and refreshing your website or moving to a new platform.
After all, it can absolutely 100% be an amazing decision to help move your business to the next level and make more money in your business.
Personally, I believe that there is no one fits all solution for your website. Everyone has a unique business and needs a unique solution for their website.
Instead of what other people do or say you should do, you should look at what works in your business and how you want to grow your business.
Because shiny object syndrome is real.
Spend your time on profit-generating actions that will actually help you, like growing your email list, or creating automated selling funnels.
Honestly, sometimes it is hard for me to do so as well. Three years ago when I was launching my retreat, I panicked. Right as it was time to hit the send button on months and months of carefully prepared launch materials, I thought I needed to move my website to Squarespace…..at the time I was marketing myself solely as a WordPress web designer. It made no sense at all. But fear was keeping me back.
Instead of making big changes to your website, what about reading these value-filled articles on my website instead of what I’ve written for you? These are some of my best content that will help you to know if you are making the right moves for your business.
