My near-death DIY experience

My near-death DIY experience

Are you a do-it-yourselfer? 

I would say that I am, but my wife might disagree. 

I once had a near-death experience with DIY.  I was running new electrical in my basement man cave. I forgot to turn off the power at the main electric box... my pliers hit the main power supply and... BOOM!  I saw a burst of bright blue light, I was knocked on my butt, dropped my pliers, and the house went dark. When I finally stumbled out of the dark basement, found a flashlight and got the lights back on, I discovered that the power surge had actually welded the ends of my pliers together! 

How I survived that, I will never know.

DIY can be great, if it’s something you are good at, something you enjoy doing.  In other areas, like my basement electrical project, it can be incredibly stupid, costly, and not all that fun.

I have learned something important about Spire’s customers.  You do NOT want any part of your website to be a DIY project!

It took me a long time to really figure this out. (Perhaps it was that voltage to my brain from the basement electrical project).  But if you are like most customers, you choose Spire because you want us to just get it done.

Your time is valuable, and you can’t afford DIY on stuff you don’t even like to do. 

Over the past year, we’ve made our website design services MUCH SIMPLER for you, requiring less of your time and money, so that you can afford to include all the stuff you really need.

Our new sites are:

  • Mobile-friendly. They look beautiful and simply work on every device — computers, tablets, smart phones.
  • Simpler content, done for you. We've figured out exactly what pages you need to get results, and can help you pare it down and simplify everything.  Best of all, we now include content creation in our web projects. Spire marketing experts can do the writing & photography for your most important pages and help you get it just right.
  • Fueled with targeted traffic. When your site is built, we will help you fuel it with targeted traffic campaigns from social media to reach your ideal customers and give your business a boost.  We also offer growth coaching, where we can continue to sharpen your campaigns month after month and help you drive results.

Take it from me, DIY can be dangerous. Probably not as dangerous as that basement project of mine, but when it’s time to upgrade let Spire get it DONE for you, and done right.
