The GYBO site purports to offer Canadian businesses a 'free' web site - but as with most free things on the net - it's really just a way to get these customers in the door and start making money off of subscriptions and 'oh, I guess we need that too' upgrades to their new, mediocre-quality, use-our-platform-and-pay-up-or-you-go-offline web site and marketing service.
For interested Canadian small business owners, here's a few quick guides:
- How much should a web site design cost?
- Marketing on the Web: What's different and what works?
- Some great free and open-source software
- ..and a bunch of articles on Web Marketing in general.
Good luck! It's a mess out there :)
