Websites are getting so cheap to get developed these days (just a few hundred dollars today can get you what $10,000 did several years ago).

But then again, people can build their own sites using WordPress if they are willing to put in the time and effort, which is well worth it!

A website is like a phone handset. It is a total waste of money, time and space unless you call someone or they call you.

A “cheap” website is like a business having an unlisted phone number. How many of you want an unlisted business number?

Many people steer clear of the web because they don’t understand it and unfortunately they are offered help by many who think they do but don’t.

I have a client with 2 websites and both are targeting the same market.

One was produced cheaply by an IT consultant using WordPress but the client then had to spend $3,000 – $5,000 per month in Google Adwords to get much the same traffic as the other site which cost him $15,000 to produce.

The $15,000 website has only been online 1 year and visitors to it are growing at around twice the rate as the cheap site.

So the cheap website is costing $40,000 per year in adwords and the client can’t afford anymore, so business growth via this site is stalled…

Can anyone tell me, where is the value in “cheap” website production costs?
