Why do I charge five hundred dollars for a website?

I can build you a $50,000.00 website, or a website for a $100.00

That is not a problem either way, but what I have found is that the person wanting a website for their business or organization does not want to have to mess with it, for the most part.

Which now means, do we need a static website, or a dynamic website.

Static is a lot like a billboard on the side of the highway.

You put your message out there, and don’t change it, until you decide you need a new message.

Dynamic means that you access a database of sorts.

Something like amazon’s store, and that changes every time a new product is added, or one is removed.

And then there is the message type website.

It is a combination of a static and a dynamic website.

As an example, the first page will have your message, and you might have a section called “latest news” where you frequently, or infrequently add some news to update your clients so that they can follow what is happening in your business or organization.

Then you need to create and update this information whenever you decide to change it.

For awhile, you are going to need some help until you understand how to do it all.

This is the customer that I typically work for.

They pay me $500.00 to develop their website, which includes unlimited (within reason of course) help which can involve me doing it for you, or explaining it to you as you learn how to do it yourself.

And they pay the domain fee on a annual basis of approximately $15.00 once per year.

And they pay the hosting fee for whichever host they want to use which can run from $5.00 per month to $10.00 or so, or if they want me to host it and manage it for them, I charge $20.00 per month for one of the fastest and most secure hosts (LiquidWeb) that I have found so far.

If you are in need of a website, I will do what I can to help make it a reality for you. is my email address.

Carburetor Problems

I’ve been fighting a problem rebuilding a carburetor all week.

Cleaned everything.

Installed new parts.

Still won’t work.

Found this today when looking for advice:

Is the Tecumseh Carburetor worth repairing?

How much does a new Tecumseh Carburetor cost new?

If the time and parts to repair a Tecumseh Carburetor

exceeds half or more of the price of a new carburetor,

you should consider buying a new Tecumseh Carburetor.

What is your time worth? If you want to learn and have the time, then go for it, repair the carburetor and have fun doing so.

When it becomes frustrating for any reason,

you will be more satisfied with your decision to

just put on a new Tecumseh Carburetor.

This may sound like a sales pitch for a new Tecumseh Carburetor,

but this is the same decision process we use in our repair shop.

If it will take more time and cost of parts to repair a

Tecumseh Carburetor than the cost of a new one,

we simply put on a new Carburetor.

If you are taking your mower into a repair shop, be sure

and ask them to apply the same decision method.

If you know a new Tecumseh Carburetor is priced under $60.00

you may want to consider asking the repair shop to just

put on a new Tecumseh Carburetor for you verses trying to

make the old one work. The shop may charge you for more time

trying to make the old one work, then turn around and charge you

for a simple installation of a New Tecumseh Carburetor after they

realize they can’t make the old one work.

I hate to be this way, but I’m beginning to agree with what is said there.
