Budget Web Design
Small Business Websites on a Tight Budget
Every small business owner wants to make every penny count. That’s why my affordable small business web design packages offer the most cost-effective options for self-funded entrepreneurs. Still, those starting with fewer pennies (as I did — I get it!) face extra risks. So my budget web design solutions help to mitigate those risks.
The Risks of Cheap Web Design
Web design is a tax-deductible investment, not a cost. Sound investments pay for themselves, and profits tend to be proportional to the investment. However, you do need to invest enough to get the job done — and in business, that job is competing. As a result, treating investments like costs kills businesses.
The reality is that cheap web designers often disappear and DIY sites rarely compete well with professional work. You can’t even test a business idea properly with a sub-standard site. So the less you invest in web design, the more you risk — especially with designers with less than a few years experience of running a business. It takes a lot more to make an online business work than any web design course can teach.
Still, having specialised in helping small businesses since 2005, I realise budgets sometimes limit the best intentions — and finance isn’t always an option. That’s why I’ve developed ways to provide the experienced help you need, even on a tight budget.
Safer Cheap Web Design Solutions
Whilst my static websites offer another low-cost option, without a built-in editing system, they aren’t very flexible. On the other hand, my affordable packages are extremely flexible and cost-effective — but they take more work to set up than some small startups can stretch to. So this budget web design package uses proprietary systems to offer unlimited editable pages at a lower price point.
