Other companies try to use a build-your-own website platform, but this option will still have hosting and domain costs like the other options. You save money on the design because you can use drag-and-drop features to create the site. While this option is low-cost, it lacks some of the features and tools that a professional website has. In addition, it can be a hassle for new users to figure out how to use these systems. When you need to make an update, you have to spend hours researching the right way to adjust your core pages.
Roughly 26 percent of websites are powered by WordPress, but this might not be the best option for every company.
For many businesses, the most cost-effective option is a do-it-for-me site. With this option, the cost to build a website is as low as $34.99 a month or $300 per year. You only have to spend 20 to 30 minutes on the phone for the initial consultation.
After that, the design team creates your business site with a professional email address, unlimited updates, built-in contact forms, Google Maps location information, your domain and Google-optimized content. Plus, you get hassle-free edits and updates whenever you need them. With no upfront cost to build the website and a low ongoing cost, a do-it-for-me site is one of the best options for small businesses.
