That being said …
Building a Website Nowadays Isn’t Rocket Science.
That’s right, we said it, let all of the high-priced web designers roll their eyes and sigh. At North Georgia Web, we have been building and marketing business and niche websites for Aunica Media for over 20 years, so we know what we’re talking about. With the explosion of ready-made templates and drag and drop web builders like our WebDawg Builder, building websites has never been easier!
With some up-front money, a bit of practice, some trial and error and a fair amount of searching the innerweb, most people can build and publish their own website. However, there are a lot of other nuts and bolts that go into publishing a successful website besides the actual building of the site. There’s API services, Google Search Console, Analytics, GMB, sitemaps and a host of other connective concerns that go into a modern website these days.
The thing is, we hire professionals every day to do tasks ,that if we put our mind to it, we could probably do for ourselves. However, when you hire a pro, not only will you skip the chore, time and aggravation, you’ll know that the job was done correctly and will stand the test of time. After all, it’s not like small business owners have a lot of spare time on their hands, right?
Also, keep in mind, when you build your own website, it’s like building a house, it’s never as cheap as you originally planned. You will probably need or want a premium theme because all of the “free themes” are desperately wanting, as well as premium plugins that add the extra functionality.
You will need to consider licensed images, because the images that come with themes are not included in the price. Then there’s hosting, DNS management, domain management, SEO optimization, Schema markup, caching for server speed, css and HTML validation an much more.
And finally, making sure your website is loading correctly, hooked up to social platforms, Google My Business, and tweaked so that Google and Bing can easily find and index the website is just as critical, or even more critical, than building a nice looking website. We call it “making the trains run on time.”
Or, you can choose our business website design package that provides all of those services and features for you. At North Georgia Web, we can build you an amazing website for as low as $799, and one that will knock the socks off of the competition for $1199.
So Why Are We Cheaper?
Because we can. North Georgia Web is owned by Aunica Media, a web publishing company that, in its height, published and managed well over a hundred websites. In 2018 we sold the publishing end of our business and all of our revenue producing web properties and semi-retired.
In retirement we learned that we did not miss the business-end of the publishing business, but we did miss the creative-end. We missed the feeling you get from taking nothing, and making something. Making something that is meaningful and beautiful, something that has a life, something that has a purpose, form and function. We missed building websites.
So, we opened North Georgia Web.
The main reason web design nowadays is so expensive is because everyone is specialized in a specific niche of the web design process. For example, most design agencies will reference “our design team” when quoting a job or marketing their business. The problem with the word “team” is not the aspect of a team working together, it’s the fact that they MUST have a team in order for them to build a website.
Nowadays, asking a “front-end” person to work on “back-end” issues, is analogous to going to an pulmonary doctor for a sore throat. They have a “team” because it LITERALLY takes a team to build a functioning website.
At North Georgia Web, we can do it all, because we have already done it. We are ran by two experienced web marketing veterans who can complete, almost every aspect, of the web design process from start to finish. We don’t need a team of overpriced people, making $50 hour, to do the things that it takes to get a website up and running.
We can do it cheaper, simply because we can.
