Do you pay more attention to the price or the value of your goods and services?
This is an old theme, but like most classics, it’s still in style.
Lately, we’ve been hearing a lot about people using “free websites”, going offshore, or having a neighbor/ student do their website projects. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
In today’s competitive business climate, we understand that people want to save money. We also hear many stories when clients come to us after they tried the cheap or free versions. Yes, you may save money upfront. But, if you have to go back and repair or upgrade the work multiple times, was it really cheap? Was it a good value?
You also may find that your web designer quits, goes out of business or can’t really do what you need. A client recently told us how they had e-commerce created for their website for an amazingly low price. Turns out their provider did not create e-commerce, all they did is put a link to the clients PayPal account!
According to the latest SEO information from Aaron Aders, last year’s Penguin update for Google search eliminated the value for content published on untrusted websites. This includes low-quality websites, content farms and many “free” PR websites.
In other words, not only do you need great content, but a great website to put it on.
Please don’t undervalue yourself or your business. Hire a professional to do the web services that you need.
