When you are working with a Fortune 500 company you can bet they don’t have a $30,000 website. They may pay that in monthly hosting services alone. Over the years we have worked on websites ranging from $10,000 to $700,000. Footlocker.com, for example, cost hundreds of thousands to create and over $5 million annually to maintain and manage, BUT since they earn $100 million in annual sales, the expense is easily justified.
