Making it Simple
to get a cost-effective website
that works for your business
(& looks good too!)
You really don't want to build your own website, do you? You aren't confident enough, not interested enough, there's not enough hours in your day? And let's face it, you have that super awesome business idea that you would prefer to be working on. Right?
And I know you want a fancy-pants website because it's your dream, your great idea, your baby. And you can! But...it's gonna cost you $5-$10k and up. But don't be fooled!
Fact is, you can actually build a website yourself. By using a DIY fully self-managed platform, anyone can now drag and drop their way to template perfection and have a website up and running in mere moments. You can totally do it! And I say, go for it!
Put that $5-10k
to better use
I say go for it with pom poms and cheers because chances are, your business is a start up. Or perhaps you are an existing small business, trying to improve on the decisions you made back when you were a start up. Whatever your position, I would be willing to bet my pom poms that you could put that 5-10 grand to a much better use.
Now, I'm only going to say it once...an uber expensive website will not. get. you. any more customers at the beginning of your business venture.
An expensive website will not get you any more customers
Reality is, more often than not, a start up doesn't need a whiz bang developed site full of coding and pricey plugins that you will likely never be able to make updates to yourself.
And that's a kicker. A high kick, if you like. You have to be able to update your site simply or, pay an affordable amount for someone else to update it for you. An out of date site means out of sight customers. No one is going to use a business that still has Xmas trading hours from 2017 on their homepage.
But, we have already established that you really, really don't want to build your own website, no matter how easy it is. You need someone to do it for you, don't you?! Well then....then here it is, my very own start up pitch just for you...
Have a look at what's on the menu and then we can chat.
I can't stand unexpected costs so here are a few you should be aware of.
