Just because we’re website developers doesn’t mean that we expect every business to have a reasonable budget when they first start out. There is no doubt that a bespoke website designed specifically to suit all of your needs would be ideal, but what if you’re a startup or a micro business with a very tight budget?
All said and done, there is definitely an argument that can be made in support of free or cheap websites, such as WIX or Weebly. The problem is that these free websites generally don’t offer good long term results.
What’s better than a free website?
For those of you who want more flexibility, scalability and control over their websites, you can step up a level and use a platform like Squarespace. This type of platform gives you more flexibility in the design and layout of your website and are easier to use in the back-end, but you are still constrained within certain limits and you have to pay a monthly fee.
We know that budget and cashflow can sometimes be problems for small businesses, which is why we recently launched a new brand, Just Websites. Through Just Websites, we’re able to offer professionally designed websites without all the bells and whistles. This is the next step up from platforms like Squarespace, as there are no ongoing fees, and no limitations on what can be done with the website in future.
If you’re not overly concerned with premium security features, site speed and ranking in Google immediately, then this type of low cost website package may be perfect for your needs. You can always save up and add all the extra features you need at a later date, but at least you will have a professionally designed website online ASAP.
How can you afford a bespoke website on a budget?
We have two options for you, both of which will give you a website designed by our team of professional website developers in Brisbane:
- Just Websites: The first option is to start with a basic website for a small startup fee and a fast setup.
- GO Creative: The second option is to go straight for enhanced packages, either paid up front or on a 12 month payment plan.
GO Creative has been a leading web design company in Brisbane for more than 16 years — and now, with Just Websites, we’re able to offer professional website packages to suit even the smallest budgets.
