How much should you spend on marketing?
Your marketing budget should always be a percentage of your annual revenue. For growth, B2B companies should invest 2-5%, and B2C 5-10%.
(Revenue) x (2-10%) = Marketing Budget
Consider the average website investment.
Not all websites are built the same, and different features and complexities lead to different price points.
How much does a website cost to set up?
The cost of a website build really depends on the project. We consider everything from the features and design needed to the complexity of the infrastructure and technology. For most custom websites, we’ve eliminated the up-front cost of the website build by introducing our simplified monthly flat-rate plan. However, if you require a more complex solution, we’ll meet first to determine the scope of work and prepare a proposal.
It’s also important to note that websites generally aren’t one-and-done products; they require monthly maintenance and upkeep to thrive on the ever-changing internet. That’s why our plan rocks. We help your website compete by making adjustments and improvements during the 12 month period (and long after).
What do I get for the $2k website plan?
The 12 month contract not only gives us time to build your new website, but also time to fine tune and optimize to ensure it’s running at peak performance. In addition, you also get unlimited tech support, content updates and FLEX Suite access!
Are there additional costs beyond the monthly plan?
Our monthly plans do not include hosting, advanced development/coding, after-hours support, domain registration or third-party software. That doesn’t mean we aren’t able to help, it’ll just cost a little more.
Is website hosting included in my plan?
We don’t include hosting in our website plan because every website has different needs. 8bitstudio has partnered with some of the most reputable hosting providers in the industry and we prefer to host your site. Pricing is determined on a site-by-site basis. Get in touch with us to talk about hosting plans. If you already have a hosting provider or want to host it yourself, that works too.
Do you provide proposals or just flat-rate plans?
If your organization requires a proposal, we welcome RFPs. Our flat-rate plans do not cover new development for complex websites.
What is FLEX Suite?
Only the sweetest deal we have… It’s a monthly goodie box for your website! FLEX Suite comes with a growing library of hand-picked, high-powered technology like visitor insights, SEO tools, event tech and much more. FLEX Suite is included in both our managed hosting and managed website plans. Check out everything that’s included in FLEX Suite.
How long does it typically take to build a website?
This entirely depends on the project. The timeline varies depending on the complexity of the site and how quickly you can provide us feedback & content. On average a custom website can take anywhere from 2-6 months to build. Complex websites can take anywhere from 4-12 months to build.
Do I have the flexibility to upgrade my plan in the future to accommodate changing requirements?
You betcha! We’re here to help you grow your business, so when the time comes you have the flexibility to upgrade (or downgrade) your plan and your website to fit your changing needs. Plans can be modified once per year. This allows us adequate time to ensure you get the best results and your website transitions smoothly.
Am I bound by a contract?
You’ve got us for at least a year, and a lot happens in that first 12 months. We build your website, we optimize it and we provide the support you should expect from your website partner. After the initial 12 months, your plan will automatically continue on a month-to-month basis which can be canceled per our Terms of Service available on our legal page.
