We all have a nephew Tommy.
His name might not actually be Tommy, but you know what we mean.
He’s in high school. He made a couple websites for friends that look pretty good. He’s offered to build your site for 600 bucks and heck, you want to give him a shot! Tommy is leaving for college soon to study graphic design. That’s great!
But here’s the kicker: Between studying, social engagements, and keeping up with the day-to-day survival that is the college experience – Tommy doesn’t have much time to maintain your site. In fact, you haven’t heard from Tommy in four months! Normally this isn’t a big deal but you’ve got updates to make. You’re offering a new service and running a huge sale on gizmos but can’t get in to make changes. Now that you think about it, you’re not even sure who’s managing the domain and hosting it! Hopefully Tommy is keeping up on your registration.
Much like we don’t recommend having a high-schooler replace the engine in your car, we don’t recommend Tommy build your website.
