How long does it take to build a new Web site for your startup business? It depends on what kind of Web site you need and want to build. Usually this is dictated by your budget.
If you’re a veteran startup entrepreneur and founder, you’ve inevitably run into this situation: you want a new Web site. Nothing too fancy but the basics for sure and maybe a bell or whistle here or there. Not Amazon but also not a placeholder.
You want your Web site to look good. Professional. Competent. Like someone people would not mind doing business with if you stumbled across them on Google.
And you want some ROI too, so you’re going to have to track things. Analytics.
Collecting information is one of the things Web sites do best and you want to know who is coming to your Web site and direct them to your CTA (Call To Action). You need to point your visitors in the right direction. Always.
So you have your basic requirements. You have a few other things like a color palette and a logo you want to use.
And you post your job ad on Craigslist. And you are fucking inundated – dozens – hundreds maybe – emails from all over. Everywhere but near you. Because people that know how to sell stuff (and build Web sites) – they automate things. And if you well Web sites: auto-responding to everyone who hits your keywords will likely result in a little business. Lots of angsty SPAM recipients, but some business nonetheless. And these are the people who want to build your Web site.
First: there’s a language barrier. I don’t care if they speak English: the accent will be a stumbling block in your communication. But the prices…after a US quote or 3…they look good!
And you pull the trigger and shoot someone a down payment – they’re working remotely (which OK, right?) – and you get to work. You see an early version and it’s not quite what you had in mind.
Unfortunately…it never changes. You don’t really get what you wanted. But let’s be honest: you got what you paid for.
That’s how it goes about 88% of the time.
When it comes to hiring Web site developers: there’s a spectrum. a Big one.
