Should You Get a Cheap Website?

You should not get a cheap website because you get what you pay for - you'll get a cheap website. There's a lot of technical and marketing expertise that goes into creating a good website, which can compete in even lower competition industries. With a cheap website, there will be a good chance that many important steps will be skipped and the website will not be able to compete.

Webstix has a list of nearly 200 items we check before making a website live. We've come up with this list from all the work we've done since we started in 2001 - and even before that. That's our secret sauce that no other website design company on the planet has.

Good websites need:

  • An intelligent plan/strategy
  • Well thought out copywriting and marketing
  • Expertly crafted home page and landing pages
  • Original content that's helpful to the website visitor
  • Good, smart structure that makes sense to people and search engines
  • Graphics and code that loads quickly
  • Intuitive navigation
  • Calls to action in the right places
  • The best user experience
  • Content designed to rank high in search
  • Keyword targeted pages
  • An interface making it easy to edit and add content
  • Design that works well on all devices and operating systems
  • To have a plan for maintenance and support
  • Good, reliable hosting
  • and LOTS more

Going with cheap website design is just like burning your money. What you get won't be enough to get you where you need to be and you'll have to later call in the experts to re-do the work. We've seen this scenario play out way too many times and we feel bad when clients in this situation come to us for help.

Do your future self a favor and do not get cheap website design. Either save up, get financing, or get on a payment plan with your web developer but make sure you end up with a website that checks all the boxes so you don't waste your hard-earned money.
