Let’s imagine you were starting your business with a minimum of $10,000.
The basic cost of getting a logo designed for your new company would have been over $1,000.
Without the option of going online and finding a talented designer, you were limited to hiring a graphic design firm or a print shop with a design speciality. That single cost could have eaten away up to 10% of your funding.
A website design would have been even more expensive. In fact, a website alone could have taken the rest of your initial cash immediately, particularly when you take into account the cost of a server to host it!
You might end up with a logo and a snazzy home page, but you’d be hard pressed to fit in any other expenses — so much for marketing, advertising, promoting or growing.
