As we talked about last week, there are a lot of myths out there about building a website — from the price to the timeline to the level of skill you need.

The answers to people’s questions about website creation vary greatly though, depending on the route you take to build it.

Increasingly, however, individuals and small businesses are striking out on their own and using DIY website builders (like…say…Webs SiteBuilder).

The infographic below aims to clear up any confusion and clarify the differences between hiring professionals to create a website, and making a go of it on your own.

Have you tried either method before? We’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
