The secret to creating your $100 professional website

Stretch your money

Contrary to what you may have heard, you DON’T have to spend thousands of dollars to get a good website.  You really can create a professional website for $100 dollars, and still have money left over for a latte.

Don’t care for lattes?  Fine, then buy yourself a beer, a Coke, or whatever else tickles your fancy.  Whatever you decide, your Ben Franklin will be enough for creating your website.

It’s true that many businesses pay thousands of dollars for a website.  It’s also true that many businesses fail, and one of the reasons they fail is having costs that are greater than revenue.  So, bootstrapping and keeping your business lean is a great way to reduce your risk when you start a consulting business.

Besides the hefty price tag, a several-thousand-dollar website will likely take weeks or months before it goes live.  So, not only are you wasting money, but you’re also wasting precious time.

Creating a professional website in a couple hours for $100 makes the most of your scarce resources.

Why is a website so important?

A website allows potential clients to find you, learn about your services, and establishes professional credibility.  But a more direct benefit is that a website lets your customers come to you, rather than you having to spend tons of time cold-calling.  Over the past year, I’ve gotten about half of my new clients directly from my website.

So what?

I don’t know about you, but I hate making cold-calls.  I’m not a slickster salesperson, and would much rather spend my time working on billable work instead of cold-calling prospects.

Well, when a client finds you from a Google search, and has looked at your website before calling you, that’s a great lead.  The potential client knows what they want and they’re pretty sure you can deliver.  You just need to close the deal.

What can you really get for $100?

Good question!  For under $100, you can get:

  • your own website address (for example, www.YourFantasticBusinessName.com), and
  • a year of hosting (in other words, a company to store and keep your website visible to the world).

That may not sound like much, but there are some fantastic free and easy-to-use tools to personalize your site and give it a professional look.

$100 Website Guide

Best of all, you can:

  • be a tech newbie, and
  • create your entire website in a couple of hours.

What’s not to like?

While there are hosting companies that give you tools to create a website, you’re required to pay every year for the service, and will have limits on how many pages you can have–unless you want to pay more.

With the tools, tips, & tricks in my ebook, you can:

  • have essentially unlimited pages and content on your site,
  • more flexibility for your website design, and
  • literally hundreds of tools that you can add to your website to automate things like e-mail marketing, and even create a shopping cart for users.

    Thank you so much for putting it together and making it free. As I was following all the steps you laid out, I kept wondering how I would have ever figured this stuff out on my own. I wish you the best of luck in all your online and offline ventures!
