1. DIY Website Builders
Do it yourself websites or DIY websites are fairly popular. Prime examples are Wix, Squarespace and Weebly.
If you’re looking for a temporary solution, these websites are good for you. Think of DIY website as Website RENTALS. You don’t really own this digital asset, but rather rent some online space to put your business information, and maybe interact with some people on this rented property.
|Total Cost in 5 years
|$2,880 – $12,840
|$2,820 – $12,900
|$2,460 – $12,060
We don’t recommend using DIY websites longer than 5 years, as that would end costing you much more that actually getting a professional OWNED website.
Freelancers can be found on Upwork, Fiverr, and Linkedin. If you’re using the conventional freelance platforms, then you have to pay certain fees of the platform. It ends up being very costly.
|Total Cost after Platform Fees
|$2,880 – $61,970
|$840 – $40,320
As you can see, the cheapest solution would still cost you quite a lot. This is not even having in mind that all the good freelancers are not available.
The freelancers that are available, usually work on multiple projects. More often than not, the freelancers don’t speak english.
So needless to say, you’re going to suffer quite a bit working with freelancers.
3. Marketing companies
MInimum cost of hiring a marketing company is $5,000. This is the worst website you can get.
Not only that, but they will not give you any support, revision, or anything of the sort.
If you have some edits you’d like them to do, then that will cost you extra $100 per HOUR!
This is very expensive, but it is the most reliable solution. This is so simply because you can sue them and take them to trials if something goes wrong with your website.
