In 2012 I started my own apparel company called Random Idea Apparel. I had no money but I did have a vision and a strong desire to create a brand. That was when I discovered wix. Wix is an online platform that allows people to build their own website. Today it is a billion dollar global company with millions of users and partners like me. Here are a few pictures of my store ahhh the good old days!
As I said before money was tight so I created my own website on wix and we rocked that site for a few years and for a few years that site did very little to help us sell apparel and build our brand. I used all the tools wix had provided and the website looked ok but knowing what I know now after building a ton of websites I now see why my first site did not serve a purpose.
This very week I built an online store for a wonderful woman and in one day she recouped the money she invested in me building her site. She could have built the site herself like I did almost a decade ago but instead she contracted a professional to bring her vision to the market in digital form and it paid off big time for her.

I want you to think about what your time is worth. You can absolutely build a website on your own and you can build one that is functional and possibly profitable if you take the time to research and build it. But is that really the best use of your time? Is that really how you want to start out your business doing all the leg work? I am going to guess no.
If you want to have a good looking, effective website, hire a professional. If money is tight, build the basic structure of your site then hire a wix partner to do the rest. It will save you time and money and thats what business is all about right?
