Things to consider

PART 1: Needs vs Wants

It’s tough being on a tight budget, but there are certain things you should look out for when getting that Fiverr web developer…

Just for clarity and transparency, and to show you I am 100% (un)biased – I am also on Fiverr 😉

There are some VERY good people offering their services on Fiverr and other sites like Upwork and Freelancer, so I’m definitely not knocking them. I’ve used many of them in the past.

If you do decide to get a website developer, here’s what you need to look out for:

1. Define Your Website Needs

You need to know what the purpose of your website is.

Are you looking to build a “showcase site” – an online home where fans can find out more about you and your books?

Or do you need something big and flashy? A site that might handle your entire library of video content, showcasing your amazing public speaking abilities and all your incredibly engrossing advertisements from your countless successful ad campaigns?

If you want big and flashy, you have money to burn, and you simply MUST have a pure-play web designer AND a front-end web developer that designs your website from scratch, well… that’s your call. I can tell you it’s completely unnecessary. (It will also cost you upwards of $4k…)

Most authors ONLY need 4 pages and the KISS principle applies here – Keep It Simple Stupid…
