Of course you can build your own website. But just like doing anything yourself, as opposed to hiring a professional, you run the risk of these issues:
- Spending a huge amount of your own time
- Not knowing how to maximise the platform after building dozens of previous websites
- Not giving it the best chance to perform in Google Searches
- Losing potential business because the structure & design doesn't grab the visitor's attention.
