HERE'S AN EVEN BIGGER PLUS: ALL THOSE THREADS COST A FRACTION OF WHAT TELEVISION
OR PRINT ADVERTISING DOES. WITH FEW RECURRING COSTS!!! UNLIKE PRINT OR TELEVISION WHERE YOU PAY
HUNDREDS, IF NOT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS MONTHLY, YOU PAY ONCE FOR A WEBSITE.
SURE YOU HAVE TO HOST IT SOMEWHERE BUT THAT BILL COMES ONCE A YEAR AND FOR MOST BUSINESSES
IT'S USUALLY JUST MERE COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS.
DESIGN AND INSTALLATION COSTS RANGE FROM $1,000 AND UP DEPENDING YOUR NEEDS. MOST BUSINESSES THAT DON'T
NEED ELABORATE ONLINE SHOPPING CARTS AVERAGE $1,500.
PRICES INCLUDE DOMAIN NAME AND HOSTING.
(Legal mumbo-jumbo: Pricing subject to change without notice)
LOOK OVER THESE 4 EXAMPLES:
(lower to higher cost)
*Dan's Longbranch Steakhouse: Example of a basic site for a customer
who primarily needs to have contact info and directions on the Web.
*Shawnee Repair: On the "Sales" page click on the manufacturers icons to see
an example of keeping the customer on your page while they browse. Note that
on all these sites the customer has several options for contacting you.
*Bolduc Mechanical Services(my brother's company): Note on the Rotary page how
we use separate windows for the Rotary website. The customer can browse Rotary's
site and then send a sales inquiry from the BMS site while looking at the product
they're interested in.
*Specialty Food Equipment: An example of the use of frames and a basic Shopping cart,
good for a business that has a small number of products it wishes to market online.
On the Products page the customer can have a "Sales Inquiry" form open in a separate
window while browsing the manufacturers site, without them leaving your site.
