Episode 13: When to DIY Your Website vs When to Hire a Pro with Michelle Pontvert
True story: Many years ago, when I first launched my business, I thought that having a professional website was essential for my success.
Not knowing anything about building websites, I went on one of those freelance hiring sites and put up a job posting for a website.
I hired a team I thought would do a good job, even though the budget was a bit of a stretch.
Unfortunately, my experience was less than amazing. The team built a pretty basic site, it wasn’t even complete when they just disappeared, and having that website did nothing to bring in paying clients.
Now fortunately, I have a pretty techie husband who was able to figure out web design and set me up with a site that worked and he’s built my sites ever since. However, I know that not everyone is in this situation and I don’t want you to have to go through the same challenges and frustrations that I did.
And so I’m grateful and excited to share today’s interview with you. Today we’re talking with Michelle Pontvert, a branding and website designer with 12 years of design experience, who specializes in working with overstretched parents with service-based businesses who are ready to scale up their businesses and scale back their overtime.
Michelle lives with her husband and adorable 2 year old in Paris, far from her native Australia or adoptive homeland America, and balances serving her clients and being a hands-on Mum.
