Believe it or not many small businesses are still not using the internet to conduct business.
In fact according to a survey by research firm Clutch, only 46 percent of U.S. small businesses still don’t have a website for their company.
Another study by comScore Canada found that Canadians spend an average of 36.3 hours browsing in one month’s time, while Americans spend 35.2 hours online every month.
(It is found that Canadians spend more time online each month than anyone else.)
Here’s what goes into the cost of a website:
- Hosting – This is the service or company providing space on the internet for your website.
Hosting providers include GoDaddy, InMotion, and others. We recommend you use GoDaddy. Hosting is charged monthly and typically costs $7 and up.
- Domain name – This is the www.yourcompany.com, and is usually a yearly payment. WordPress, as an example, charges $14.99 per year for your domain name.
- Design – Some designs are free, other cost money, plus the number of pages.
- Plugins and extensions – typically, the more plugins you want, the more expensive a website gets.
- Complexity of design – The more customized your website is, the more expensive it is
