Roadblock To Beginning a Web Site Project

E-mail Print PDF

roadblockI always find it amazing how many projects we start and how long some projects take to get to completion. I would love to report that the sluggishness is on our side. I wish we were slow. But that isn't the case at all.

There seems to be certain roadblocks or barriers that prevent small businesses completing a web site project. Since we've been through the process a few times, I'd thought I'd put on a magic hat and post the roadblocks ahead of time.

Beginning the Web Site is Often the Most Difficult

Beginning is the most difficult. This is the same roadblock that plauges people from going to the gym or starting a diet. They simple never begin. What's interesting is that if I went and asked most small business owners "How important is a web site?" we would all agree to some level that web sites in today's day and age are very important. Still at the same time, many small businesses don't spend any time on their web site at all.

What About Your Project

So what about your web site? Is it stuck in the 1990's with static pages? Is the design up to date and modern? Appealing to the eye? How long have you spend on your web site this week? Do you need to begin a new project that you've been waiting on?

What if You Began?

Imagine what it would be like if you did. Even though there is probably some items you don't understand and even through it's going to cost some money, think about how much more it'll cost if you never begin.

Final Thought with a Quote

Burrito Brothers is a small burrito shop that we frequent here in Jupiter, FL. The staff posted quotes on the wall. I think the following hanging quote from Theodore Roosevelt sums it up,

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
