Most businesses who buy a website for the first time, make the mistake of thinking it is a set-and-forget deal, when in fact, your web presence requires ongoing nurturing and tweaking, much like your business itself. Over a period of 12 years, your site is bound to need at least three complete facelifts, due to the rapid advancements in technology and search engine optimisation best practices. If you don’t choose the best possible web host and management package, you’re bound to end up spending a small fortune on your website over time, making it increasingly more difficult to make a solid return on investment.
What Businesses Spend on Web Design & Maintenance
The average website costs upwards of $5,000 to design and build. Over the first year, people spend $1,000 a year on maintenance and site changes. Hosting costs approximately $300 a year, and $30 for domain registration. SSL security costs $150 a year.
That’s an upfront total of $6,480, which, if you’re lucky, will keep you for 3-4 years, which is the average lifespan of a website before you will have to pay a similar amount of money for redesign in order to keep pace with evolving technology. Over a twelve-year period, you’re bound to spend close to $30,000.
That’s insanity! It’s also the reason why FrogOnline decided to do things a bit differently.
FrogOnline is all about bringing value to our customers, and that’s why we’re delivering an all-new web design and maintenance service that supersedes the offers of our competitors. Instead of 12 years, we give you 31 years of value. Instead of three design facelifts, we give you fifteen for the same price that our competitors charge.
But of course, we understand that you might not need a website for quite that long as goals and business directions change. So instead of massive upfront payments, we only charge a small monthly subscription fee that gets you:
- A facelift every two years (for your website, of course!)
- A responsive website that works well on any device.
- A simple Content Management System that makes it easy to add and change content on your site – no experience needed.
- Free support, should things go wrong.
When you’re trying to make a success of your business, the last thing you need is for your website to take up all your time and energy.
