How much does a website cost?
There are usually no easy responses to complex questions like these: Where are you going to host it? What do you want on the website? How many pages of static content and dynamic content do you have? Do you need e-commerce features? Who will maintain your site? How do you want to integrate social media? And, there are potentially hundreds of other considerations to add!
At Webidextrous.com, we have a unique and competitive way to create, host, secure, launch, promote, and manage your quality, high-performance website at a price you can afford.
We get it. You have a fixed budget, with no wiggle room for surprises. That’s why we offer subscription-based Personal and Professional management packages for small-scale, low maintenance sites. For larger scale, higher maintenance sites, we offer a Business and an Enterprise management subscription package. Each package is customized and priced according to your budget and specific needs.
My friend does my site for free. Why should I pay?
Bottom Line: Free is not always good, responsive, or thorough. Maintenance can be a time drain, even when “free”. You’ll get better quality when you pay for better quality.
We get it. We’ve done sites for friends for free before. You feel great giving something to someone who can’t do it for themselves. What often happens, in any “work for free” situation, is burnout. Bills have to be paid. Kids have to be driven to school and activities, and spouses and pets feel neglected. Ask a designer or webmaster whether she would rather have the money or the warm-fuzzies, and most will eventually say they want some compensation for their time and effort.
When burnout happens, and the priorities change, quality and timeliness of new content suffers. There is less incentive for your friend to do “just two more changes” when her schedule conflicts with yours.
The majority of our customers have come to us when this situation develops. They recognize that, while the “free” arrangement worked for getting the site running, it quickly fell apart when the site needed updates, a face lift, or a hosting change. They just want things simple and for the site to be fresh with quality content. Paying for that privilege suddenly looks very appealing vs. waiting and hoping a friend can get around to it.
We charge a fair rate for full-service site coordination. We provide more extras than all of our competitors. If you find that not to be the case when you research other options, let us know and we’ll gladly work to provide information about their prices and what more you’ll get with Webidextrous. Like the robot Baymax in the movie Big Hero 6, we want you to be satisfied with your care.
