Website Design Fears

Recently I was asked to review a website and provide a quote to redesign & host. Upon presentation to the owner, he replied that he was going to use a local student to build the website for less than 20% of my quote. I wished him well and offered future assistance if needed.

Here’s the issue: A large amount of the websites we acquire are from former webmasters that are unreachable by the website owner. The previous webmaster usually relocates without notice and the domain name and files are typically lost. The website owner usually has to start over with a new domain name and marketing campaign.

I know price is important and the down economy has everyone pinching pennys and counting coins, but the old addage “You Get What You Pay For” still applies.

Not just building a website for your business, but in all aspects of your business, use a reputable service provider. You wouldn’t want a handy man building your home on Lake Norman, would you?

Price is important, but quality and service after the sale is too!
