The other thing they’ll tell you is that it’s better to code your site from scratch, so you’re website will be unique and so on…
The fact is that building a website from scratch requires time, which of course costs more money. But the real problem is that you are not able to do any content changes yourself….so you’ll always need to call them to make any minor changes, like changing a date of your event or price of your products/services.
And for that they will hit you with their ‘developers fee’ at min $90 per hour.
So, something simple as changing a date of your event might cost you $150 or more…this stuff happens everyday on regular basis.
You see, it’s in their interest to keep you ‘locked in’ in this kind of contract.
