So How Much Are You Really Saving?

Unless you happen to really know HOW to build a website, chances are you will spend / lose far more going with the Website Tonight route than paying a pro to build your site.  The bottom line with anything in business is asking yourself if your time is truly best spent doing what you’re doing.  If you own a business that makes the best pizza in the world, then your times is going to be much better spent making and selling pizzas – not trying to learn to be a web designer and building your pizza-selling website!  We hire a Pro when we need to get the job done right the first time, and we don’t have the luxury of doing the project ourselves.  Time is money, and in business, wasting that time proves to be a very expensive mistake.

Why Are Websites So Expensive?

It’s a fair question, and it’s easy to be a grumpy spectator and gripe about being taken to the cleaners and things like that.  However, there is a very good reason websites cost what they do.  If you are a business owner with employees an expenses, then you’ll immediately understand.  A good website will have anywhere from 20-40 hours, or even hundreds of hours.   A well built website is a handmade thing – custom tailored to your business.  Every hand involved in the site from sales to production is an expense to the web developer.  When you look at it that way, it’s much easier to see where the cost comes from.
