If you want to maximize the potential of your business, take advantage of today’s internet technology and at least have a website for your trade. A lot of success stories can be heard about people who ventured online to earn a living. Among these is the 17 year old individual earning $10 million annually for running an online dating site. Another person earns $164 million dollars after selling 100,000 domains. These and many ordinary people took a great leap in their life’s financial status simply because they made use of what’s in our midst; the internet.

“I just created a hilarious blog site and won a book deal from a famous publisher. As a result, I was paid $300,000 in advance after agreeing to work for them”, blogger Christian Lander said. Christian is just one of the millions of people who are earning a lot without the need to go out from the confines of one’s home.

Hence, regardless if you are selling services of items, having your own website will surely bring wonder, giving you the advantage of reaching a global market.

However, there is one concern shared by many entrepreneurs, especially those who have just started their business and this is the Cost of a website. Surely, these people want to limit their operating cost due to a very tight budget. And the need to stay competitive will surely be a great challenge. In fact, majority of customers no longer wait to arrive home and order items through their desktops, but many of them have turned to their cellphones to make the purchase. This increases online sales, and many of today’s entrepreneurs are recipients to such advantage.

There are many things that need to be considered when creating a website. And the level of complexities will determine its cost. Every website has its distinct design, different brand and even diverse content. And on top of this, some websites require a certain level of effort to be created. And they cost more than their simpler counterparts.

Costs of website creations range from $7,000 to $40,000. And this is the latest update for 2016 prices. If you want a website to be simple yet informative, you may go for the rate of $7,000 to $10,000. This only consists of around 4-6 pages with social media links and feeds. You may be asked to provide your company’s logo, texts and images. It may also include a sign up for an email newsletter, gallery calendar as well as slideshows.

If you can afford to spend $11,000 to $20,000 then a mid-size informational site will be good for you. This time, you will be given subpages as well as options. And you can avail for more pages. A shopping cart is also included to as much as 100-500 products.

But why would you limit your budget when you can spend more.  If you can afford to invest to as much as $40,000, you can enjoy having customer account dashboards, back office integration, multi-language features, custom product configurators and a whole lot more that can be beneficial to your business.

There are many ways to operate a business. You can stick to the traditional buy and sell method and limit your earning potential or tap your online access and maximize your sales. But for 2016, it is about time that every entrepreneur considers using today’s internet technology to flourish in their trade.
