Why Cutting Corners on Website Maintenance Can Cost You More Than You Think

Considering Switching to a Low-Cost Website Provider? You May Want to Think Again.

In the current economic climate, with the cost of living reaching new heights, businesses everywhere are feeling the pinch. At Iceberg Web Design, we’ve observed firsthand the rising expenses required to maintain our standard of service—from payroll to software, hosting, and even the basics like rent and utilities. It’s a universal challenge that has prompted all small businesses to make some tough decisions, including raising prices to continue delivering the exceptional service customers deserve and expect.

However, this shift has led some customers to venture out, moving away from full service agencies and seeking cheaper alternatives for website hosting and development. The allure of lower prices is understandable, but as many are discovering, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

The Hidden Costs of “Saving”

The true cost of partnering with a website development agency isn’t just in the monthly bills. It’s in the hours spent troubleshooting issues, the days waiting for responses, and the risk of compromising your website’s security. We have had multiple conversations with business owners seeking lower cost services. We’ve talked with our own customers who are trying to move to hosting giants that charge $10 or less for monthly website services. We’ve also been on the receiving end – potential new customers calling to see if we can save them a few bucks on their monthly maintenance. 

Graph Time Cost

What we’re finding is that business owners who opted for less experienced, budget-friendly options found themselves investing 10-15 hours a week just to keep their websites functional. We’ve talked to business owners who have encountered unresponsive freelancers, slow turnaround times for website updates, and, in some cases, serious security breaches.

The Price of Peace of Mind

What’s often overlooked in the search for savings is the value of reliability, expertise, and customer service. At Iceberg Web Design, we pride ourselves on being website developers who answer the phone. Our commitment to prompt, professional service and our expertise in creating secure, dynamic websites are what set us apart. When the alternative is spending your valuable time micromanaging your website or dealing with the fallout from a security hack, the investment in quality service becomes a clear value.

A Welcome Return

Despite the initial departure in search of cheaper rates, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming back several clients over the past year. These business owners returned not just for the quality of our work but for the peace of mind that comes with our responsive customer service and reliable support. They’ve seen firsthand that cutting corners on something as crucial as their online presence costs more in time, stress, and even security risks.
