One of the most difficult aspects of starting a new business is the inevitable onslaught of tasks and responsibilities that come your way paired with a limited budget for hiring help. The key is to prioritize and decide which are the tasks that you can handle yourself and which are the tasks that you should hire someone to help with. Normally I would say that anything involving website creation and coding should be left to professionals (based on my complete lack of web design skills) but recently I heard about something called Codecademy, which could possibly make me change my tune.
A website is such an important part of your overall business and brand identity that I’m not sure if I would ever feel comfortable attempting to create one on my own. However, from what we can tell, this tool seems pretty easy to use. It kind of reminds us of the Rosetta Stone for html language…only it’s free.
Overall, we think Codecademy is worth a try, especially if a small startup budget is something you’re working with. Let us know how it works out for you.
