Cheap Websites May Cost You Dearly

December 14, 2010

When it comes to websites, everybody and their brother claim to be website designers.  I’ve seen dirt cheap prices, some as low as $500, for a “website”.  But before you jump at a low price, make sure you know what you’re getting and more importantly, what you need.  With websites, you get what you pay for.

Most designers strictly think creatively – great for design, bad for business.  They aren’t considering the fact that getting leads and sales may be a critical goal of your website.   Worse yet, they don’t know how to build it to achieve these goals.

Common problems with cut-rate designers include:

  • Going out of business – because they didn’t charge enough to stay in business
  • No marketing background – does your website close the sale, get the call, prompt a free quote, etc.
  • No search engine research – they don’t keep up with the changes on the search engines to keep your website at the top.
  • They offer no supportive services like SEO, SEM, e-mails to customers, etc.
  • No customer service after the site is built – you can’t reach them to ask questions or get a returned call.

Bottom-line:  You get what you pay for.  Don’t pay for a hamburger when you need a steak.  If you need a website that works, one that drives traffic and creates sales, get in touch with a marketing agency that can help you not only with design, but with function, search engine optimization and management as well.
