Recently, a friend asked "What'srepparttar deal with those DIY companies that advertise "How to get a website with everything your business needs for under $20 bucks a month?". "How can they do that?" she said.

"First impressions are very deceiving!" I told her...let me share my past experience with you!

First of all... folks get excited byrepparttar 145698 low price—don't do their due dilligence and end up with buyers remorse when they get their credit card statement.

And for many reasons.

One, all that company is doing is creating cookie-cutter websites to niave, misguided folks who are impressed by all their "features". Beleive me this is true, years ago—I was one of them!

Let me tell you,repparttar 145699 hosting company I use offers almostrepparttar 145700 exact same thing packaged differently and get this...for LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE! 1 year hosting, features, domain, bells-whistles, support, blah,blah,blah, etc,etc,etc..

"Their company": 12mo/$203.76 yr (actual price taken from "Their" Website 5/30/05. Company name withheld, write me and I'll tell you)

My hosting company: 12mo/$94 yr. Ya see that, LESS than HALF!

Two, folks who work hard and takerepparttar 145701 time to create one of these flim-flam websites usually find out inrepparttar 145702 end they wasted their time because their site isn't pulling inrepparttar 145703 results they expected. Why? Cause their copy and over all site content stinks. (lets be honest!) They are so FRUSTRATED because no one ever explainedrepparttar 145704 psychology of a web site to them inrepparttar 145705 first place!
