So you would like a website and you would like to be top ten in the search engines, but you want it cheap
What could you expect for say..400.00. A 5 page site at an average of 80.00 per page ? A 40 page site at
an average of 10.00 per page ?
So why does one company say it will cost $400 and another says $900 ?
There are many reasons but optimization alone could cost $400 on a 5 page site. It could cost thousands of dollars if you were to take advantage of every detail from basic things like implimenting meta, alt and title tags to comparisons of layouts and styling codes for best performance. Add in extensive (or expensive) link development and you are into a bigger budget. Web Design Prices - What is the difference ?
Possibly that $400 guy doesn't edit meta tags, uses an out of the box, paint by numbers template and uses a mass submission
tool rather than submit to select directories. You must supply him every image and blocks of text. Not a single image has an alt tag.
$900 guy uses a search engine freindly CMS or script and edits titles and meta data for each page and uses
alt tags for images. They may also write copy for you and souce material for your site Simply wanted a website but did'nt find it simple ?
If you already have a domain name chances are you probably do not even know who your host is, what the password is, or how much you are paying. It is very common. Many businesses jumped on the idea of a website, registered their domain but
got confused as how to actually create it. Some even paying for hosting accounts they have'nt developed. Many thought that the 20.00 a year they paid for registration was including the hosting. Mainly because they did not understand that a domain name and a place to view it are 2
different things. Disovering that it actually costs 20 a month for basic plans on the most reputable hosts.
You may have tried the online website wizard creation tools, and got frustrated because it was supposed to be easy, simple, and you still couldnt do it.
Don't worry, they can make them as simple as possible but there will still be confusing elements in the
process, so don't feel bad. If you are a business owner you probably do not have the time to be learning how
to do this or that anyways. It is more efficient to hire someone to manage it for you. Soooooooooo.... please contact us if you are in need of any web design or mulitmedia services.
