The $100 Drupal Site

Track: 
Business and Strategy
Experience: 
Intermediate

Recently there has been some discussion about building Drupal sites for $100 a pop. During this presentation I will demonstrate how to sell Drupal sites for around 100USD and make a profit.

These sites will be pretty low traffic and targeting small businesses. The tools are available now to make this a reality. The sites will provide the following functionality to the customer:

  • Selection of themes with options for further customization
  • A range of content types: pages, blog posts, image galleries etc
  • Ability to enable/disable additional functionality as required - seen by users as site building blocks
  • Each site will have the possibility to be unique
  • Access to support resources

The service will include hosting for the first 12 months.

Come and learn how Drupal can be used to build such sites. This won't be a talk about Gardens.

Intended audience: 

Business people interested in servicing the lower end of the market with Drupal.
Developers interested in learning how to save time when building sites.
People wanting to be entertained by a looking at building sites differently.
