Throwing this out there- hosting sites (wix, network solutions etc) have templates that are fairly easy to use and are very inexpensive/ included in the cost of the hosting.

do you need it as a business card? or do you need it to actually make the phone ring?

we used madwire360. it wasnt cheap. but the net effect was it cost 7% of business brought in. it wasnt structured like that but that's how we tracked its efficacy...better than a salesperson

Thank you. I think we use wix now but nobody has updated it in a while and I just don't plain have the bandwidth for it this month. Hoping to give the business to a calgunner!

Thanks I'll check out Madwire. Most of our business is from yelp/walk-ins since it's in a downtown location. I just don't want the website to look so dated anymore.

I'll be watching watching this thread in case you post results since we're in the same boat. We have an old website (hosted at Network Solutions) that we created because 20 years ago, people told us if we didn't have a website, we'd be out of business in 5 years.

In case this information is helpful..... we were approached by a vendor of ours who has a department specifically tasked to help people like us. We had a conference call with them the other day.

For $1,000/month, they will create a new website (with 6 landing pages) and create two blog entries per month with some sort of talk about SEO - getting us to the top of search results.

Website design is a one-shot deal, so the reality is it's $1,000/month to write two blogs and help with search results.

I suppose time would tell, but I can't imagine it bringing in anywhere near enough sales to cover that expense.

ours was about $3k to setup and $1,600/ month. we did end up near the top of our keyword searches. it took awhile to get there organically. maybe it's a 6-7 month process. we used them for 3 years. it was very successful. then we tried $500/month. it didnt work out the same
