Cost efficient is how I'm gonna describe all things D-I-Y. You can take control of everything. You have the ability to put limitations on your business or exceed limits and expand your reach, whatever your choice.
Let's put my small business as an example. I'm doing creative party invitations as a part-time job, officially last year.
|Are you gonna do it the traditional way OR make use of a more practical way to manage your time wisely?|
I'm proud to say that I'm blessed with creative hands and an eye for screaming colors. Given limited resources and minimal budget, I can turn something bare into a big thing of beauty.
Until softwares for images came in. Free downloads let you manage your images creatively, the way you want it - presets for Lightroom, actions for Photoshop, collage for Picassa etc. And what more is that, there are some softwares that is very easy to use, all you need to learn is how to click and correctly follow instructions! D-I-Y has indeed innovated! I would've used my colored pencils, scissors, and strings and started doing crafts but to make use of my time wisely, I opted to D-I-Y my party invitations through the softwares I use online. Outcome? 50 to hundred pieces of rush party invitations in 1day. Capital? Printing only. Budget friendly? Yes it is. Profitable? Pasok sa banga.
So what's my point? Consider your business without a website.
