Last week, I paid an agency a $2800 flat fee to design and build a new website for my mobile business.
The entire project took about a week.
I estimate that the agency spent about ten hours total on it.
This gives the agency an effective hourly rate of $280/hr for web design.
Certainly a respectable profit for the agency.
I’m delighted by the new site.
The new site is dramatically more persuasive than my old site.
Everything I sell costs more than $2800, so if it delivers one additional client it’ll pay for itself.
I’m confident that the new site will pay for itself within 3 months.
I’d be surprised if the new site didn’t pay for itself tenfold within 18 months.
Q: Would I be happier if the agency took MORE time to deliver?
Q: Would I be happier if I had done the new site myself? (I’m a web developer, after all...)
A: Hell no! TBH, I’d prolly never have shipped it, and if I even had... it wouldn’t be as good because it would lack outside perspective.
Q: Am I the only person on planet earth that has more money than time?
A: HELLZ NO!!!
Find people like me. We make great clients.
