In the world of internet, stats are plenty about how India is at the cusp of website boom. For long years we’ve been fed this information, X million SMEs in India, X million people online, so there is a great potential for websites. Despite these numbers the one thing that most web designers and developers experience is strong resistance from people to go online. Which brings us to this topic, in India, selling website is very difficult and most SMEs do not believe in taking their business online. They rely on age old modes of marketing to get new business and spread the word; some of them actually believe going online is damaging for their business. We’ve met jewelry makers who are afraid that a website will mean competitors stealing their ideas. This is the state of things in our country in context to selling websites.

Do Web Designers Need to have their own Websites?

Without a doubt a web designer, especially, needs a website. Through the course of this article, we’re going to try and explain why, but straight off the bat, we’d go for a web designer who owns a website rather than someone without it. In our line of work, we get to interact with several designers, and we find plenty who do not believe in a website, though they sell it (oh the irony) to their customers. So we thought it is prudent to take this issue up and discuss it. We say, if you’re in the business of selling websites, you might as well have one of your own. So here’s why you (the designer) out of  all people should get a website:

  • Believe in what you sell: How do you sell a product you don’t believe in? We’re sure the clients are going to wonder and so would we. If we’re looking at a web designer we’d like to know how his/her website looks.
