To hard to say as the website is one of many avenues i can tell you the $200 a year to keep it is nothing compared to what we get for a return on it. A shot in the dark i would say we get 25% of our leads that came in from our website. Alot of people want info NOW not call and wait.

I get a decent amount of estimate requests on my site or calls on my phone, When I ask how they heard of us many have said "I saw the website on a truck". The key is I have a few url's, a couple which are really simple that link to my site. They are alo easier to remember than 10 degits

You can use your website as competition to other customers as well. What I mean is I have a customer that wants all his work posted on my website and every time another customer has something done he wants something done as well.
