SME digitization: The calculations are not good Mr. Minister
So let’s talk well let’s talk little…. Let us come back to the aid for the digitization of SMEs . In this regard, you will surely have heard of the announcement of the Minister of the Economy, Mr. Bruno Le Maire, on BFMTV which stipulated that the creation of a website would cost 1,500 €. And therefore promises € 500 of aid for the digitization of companies from January 1, 2021. But beware, this aid will be conditional on traders who had a loss of Malawi Email List turnover during the second period of confinement. Of course, this help is welcome, but there is still a problem:
A site has never only cost 1,500 €, we explain why! A website is a long-term investment Cost of digitizing a business Creating a website is necessarily a long-term investment and adds value to your business. This investment allows you to have visibility on search engines such as Google and thus be able to be present on the web.

The budget for a website is very variable. Indeed, the cost depends first and foremost on the type of website you want. As such, the price of a 10/15 page showcase site cannot be compared to an e-commerce site with 500 product pages, modules and a member area. SO LET’S COMPARE WHAT IS COMPARABLE!

And just on this example, the cost of creating a site will not be the same! Then intellectual property is not nothing. In addition, to pay for a tool, you might as well make it yours from the start of your investment. In summary, the actual cost of an online website can also vary depending on customer demand and needs. Especially since the scale of variability is obviously smaller than for an e-commerce site. In order to give a (true) average, a showcase site is between € 2,500 and € 5,000. Then the real cost of an E-commerce website Cost of creating an e-commerce site in full ownership
Then the cost of an e-commerce site varies enormously depending on the service provider
the type of site (e-commerce site, web portal), the number of products to integrate as well as the modules to integrate and then configure. Also, there is a difference between creating an online store with 5 product sheets, 2 means of payment and 2 carriers; against an e-shop with 500 product sheets of 7 photos, 3 payment methods including online payment with your bank and 3 carriers. But to give you an idea on how to create an e-commerce site: The average cost is around € 3,950 * * Usually with 5 – 10 products maximum.
