W'Dup, Lil' Stinky here. I have a friend who's starting an online business (physical products, not affiiate marketing or digital products) and he was asking me how much the whole site should cost for development... Hiring someone to do it, he doesn't know ANYTHING about web development or IM etc. everything from A to Z: Cutom (High End) Design Shopping Cart and Merchant set up Blog integrated into main theme. Short flash presentation. Auto responder set-up Banner creation for an affiliate program ...everything, the whole kit and kaboodle. How much do you experts think it costs to get an ENTIRE custom website up and running? From the ground up He doesn't even have hosting, just a domain name and a product at this point.
