[dropdown_box expand_text=”How much should a good web site cost??”  show_more=”” show_less=”” start=”hide”]
Today a web site is more than just a bunch of gimmicks designed to amuse the computer geek, it is part of an overall marketing campaign for many businesses. Therefore like your advertising you need it to reflect your company's image properly. A quality web site will start at about $1800 and go up. This may sound expensive but remember perception is reality on the internet and your competition is only a click away. You can get a site done for as little as $150, but if a high-quality presence is important to you or your business, the few extra dollars will pay off.[/dropdown_box]

[dropdown_box expand_text=”Why is the cost so high?”  show_more=”” show_less=”” start=”hide”]
It has been said that you can have two of three things when having design work done,these things are fast service, high quality service or inexpensive (cheap) service. Now you can have your work done fast and cheap, but quality may suffer. You can have high quality and inexpensive but it will take time or you can have fast and quality but it will cost. The reason is that one of the three has to give to make room for the other two. If you are like most people you want a quality job done in a relatively short amount of time this necessitates more time dedicated to your project therefore a higher cost. The price for any particular design comes from many facets. What the project is, the timeline for completion of the project, and the quality of service. “Read my article on Tips for Working with or Hiring a Web Designer” for more information on hiring a quality designer.[/dropdown_box]

Should it be in flash, no flash, plain html, php or what?
The difference would depend on the audience that you are trying to reach. If you are trying to reach the high speed community then you design in flash, for most customers a combination of all is often used.[/dropdown_box]
