The Accentuate IT Difference
Managing a business can get expensive
Everyone around you is asking for your money. An annual marketing conference you’ve always wanted to attend, another yearly subscription for the latest software, a training programme you can’t skip.
All these costs add up.
So how do you justify paying $3,000 to $10,000 for a business website?
Why we are not a budget agency?
Agreed, we charge way more than a lot of web design companies.
Well, to be honest, you don’t necessarily need a $3,000 website. There are agencies who would be happy to build a website for less than $1,000 to put together a cheap website.
So why should you pay more?
That’s a very good question.
I speak with a lot of business owners who wanted to “save money” by buying a cheap website. If only they knew they would be needing a new website within six months, they wouldn’t take such a risk in the first place.
Here are some common complaints we hear from business owners who’ve had a bad experience with their previous agency:
“I hardly receive any leads from my website. Can you help?”
“My agency has taken over 6 months, but there’s no sign of my website. I need a website asap.”
“My agency has not been responding to my emails.”
The truth is, not all websites are built equal when you are looking for a quality website built to help achieve your business goals. Most sub-$1,500 agencies simply outsource to overseas firms. The quality is often found lacking as they try to meet such low price points.
A large percentage of our new clients have had bad experiences with such agencies. Unfortunately, they end up losing their investment.
What makes a website good or bad?
There are several crucial differences between a good and a bad website. You must aim to avoid falling in a trap at all costs.
- Take a long time to load
- Are not SEO-friendly
- Are difficult to navigate
- Make it difficult to find information
- Are not mobile-friendly
- Boast a clear navigation
- Load quickly
- Are visible on the search engines
- Make the information easily accessible
- Are built for mobile devices
