"It Costs WHAT?!!!!!
I’m tired of hearing that.
Budgeting your internet marketing project may seem like a crap shoot. But I can simplify things for you:
- If you’re building a new site, expect to spend 2X that amount again
in the year after the site launches. Unless you want it to sit there,
all alone, with no traffic.
- If you want a site built by a single untrained individual who
‘learned how to use Dreamweaver’, expect to spend less than $2000.
Also, expect to build a new site within 3 months.
- If you want a site built by a 5-10 person, boutique-style agency,
expect to spend, at an absolute minimum, $10,000. These are experts,
and they deserve to be paid as experts."
My personal favorite was #5 "If you expect to get a #1 ranking on Google for $99, you’re insane."
