I have a post here about how Medway spent nearly £250,000 on a new council website. Unbelievable.
As an aside, in the post I mention that most major label artists don’t spend nearly that much. That brief comment is a result of two out of many experiences I have had in the music industry. First, Simon Cowell’s label does well – so well that it props up Sony in many ways – that he spends cash on his artists. The cost of those sites amount to roughly £50,000 or more, but not much more. Second, a friend of mine is working with a really popular young band and their new and highly interactive website comes at a price tag of around £100,000. So there you have it.
