I’m sorry, I don’t know what webmasters charge, I build my own sites, it only takes a little while to learn, as long as you’ve got the aptitude for putting together a good presentation, and a little coding experience, but it really is easy to get a grasp on it. I’ve learned more in the last couple weeks, than I’ve learned in the last 13 years of working on the web.
If I were to create a site for you, I’d probably charge you about $1000, and have it completed in about a week. But there’s people all over town being charged $thousands$ to have an all in one website put together in the Real Estate world.
If you’ve got MSpublisher or MSfrontpage it’s really not too hard. All the information you need to be successful is either in the help menu or on the internet.
Don’t worry, I’ve got my degree in business as well. It really comes in handy, but these days I always recommend a degree in engineering. Then go for your MBA, and then they’ll possess a winning foundation for the Austin needs.
But for a website, you’ll need to sit down and set up a structure and content, so that you provide the answers to their questions, a one stop shop for the answers they’re in search of. Speak to the issues that the individuals and families are going through, and what is happening, what they’re going through, and some sollutions, and as a last resort to contact you for your help, and you swoop in and save the day.
If your site doesn’t provide them with answers, they’ll move on to another site.
As far as those “free reports”, the best way to capture more accurate information is to require them to fill out a request form, that requires a valid email address, so it will be emailed to them, at least you’ll know that this data is accurate… They don’t always give accurate info, when filling out those on-line forms, unless they’re REALLY SERIOUS, if they’re still shopping around, they may give incorrect data so you can’t contact them.
Advice is free!
Taking my advice will of course cost you, either money or time.
I don’t mind giving up some of my time to give some helpful advice.
But like everyone else, I don’t any money unless I’m doing deals.
Let me know what else you need to know.
