10 Reasons Your Business Doesn’t Have a Website
There are many reasons companies put off building or working on their website. Here are a few (10) that I’ve heard plenty of times.
Don’t feel bad if you’ve said them, just read on and see if maybe I can help you make some progress.
Even if you are embarrassed by your first try at a website you’ve learned things most people just don’t understand. It’s hard to be an expert without putting in the time and making the mistakes that teach you experience.
Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
- It costs too much.
- It doesn’t look good on my phone.
- I’ve tried it before and wasn’t happy with the results.
- It takes too long to develop.
- I’m not a writer.
- I’m not a graphics person or photographer.
- I’m worried it’ll go down.
- Email is a pain and never seems to work right.
- Having a website isn’t that big of a deal.
- I don’t know where to begin.
It costs too much.
Sure – we’ve all heard of companies who have spent $10,000 on a single page; Maybe we’ve been one. The fact is, a webpage can cost anywhere from $1000 to $150,000 or more. Cost is relative to how much work, or mis-management goes into the site. I spend a little more time on each page (two hours minimum), but I’m shooting for quality over quantity. That being said, it’s not uncommon for me to build a site for under $1000. Contact Me for a free consultation and we’ll find out how much it costs together.
It doesn’t look good on my phone.

I’ve tried it before and wasn’t happy with the results.
Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted. Most companies have tried in some fashion to get an Internet presence of some sort. That experience taught you things you can’t learn any other way and because of that you are a more informed customer. Don’t let that experience go to waste if you want to get back on the Internet (or upgrade from your first version).
It takes too long to develop.
A month is about the average time it takes to build a quality website. If you had started working with me 30 days ago, you’d be done by now.
I’m not a writer.
I have professional writers who work with me on a regular basis. I’ll interview you for content and make sure that what we create represents your company while being search engine friendly to the phrases you are looking to capture.
I’m not a graphics person or photographer.
You don’t have to be. I have all of the equipment and expertise to help you look good.
I’m worried it’ll go down.
