Does nest cost more?
Yes and no. nest is a totally different solution than most business owners are used to, but it's still more affordable than the alternative. nest is everything you need to grow your business online wrapped into an affordable monthly model. That way, it's easier to budget than paying for things separately. The charges are a little higher in the first few months while we're building out everything, and then the monthly marketing support fees drop after your website launches and we go into growth mode.
How do I get started on nest and how much is the investment?
We start out with an initial consultation to discover more about your business and goals. After that we move into a scoping session to determine what the initial website and marketing support after will look like. The full build process takes about 3 months and the budget for those months is higher because we're spending 40 to 60 hours each of those months setting up everything. After the build is complete and your new website launches, the budget for marketing support is determined by your growth goals, but can start out under $1k/mo.

Is nest all I need to grow my business?
It depends on your current situation, and your growth goals. New businesses, or businesses with little past digital investment have a harder time because we’re starting from no online foundation. Other businesses have more aggressive growth goals, and so advertising budgets need to be considered to reach those goals.
How does nest compare to other CMS Platforms like WordPress and Squarespace?
There are lots of proprietary Content Management Systems out there. WordPress and others make it easy for people to manage and publish content. For large projects with complex functionality, Wordpress is still a great, cost-effective solution. However, WordPress and similar platforms have been getting older and slower. These have some well-documented shortcomings and drawbacks in the following areas:
- Performance - WordPress is slow. With site speed as one of the top Google keyword ranking factors, this can have serious negative effects on your SEO efforts.
- Security - WordPress runs on plugins. Unfortunately, the majority of web hacks are due to outdated plugins. This and other features mean these CMSs are quite vulnerable.
