Create site maps cost effectively
Creating a site map manually takes hours or days, even for medium size sites. PowerMapper creates site maps automatically with a single click. Ballpark costs to manually create a site map are:
- 3 minutes per page to create and layout a box for each page in a drawing package then copy-and-paste the page title or url
- Total Effort: 50 hours to create a map of a 1,000 page site (3 minutes x 1,000 pages)
- Total Cost: $2,500 at $50 per hour (50 hours x $50)
PowerMapper can build a better site map in under 5 minutes for a small fraction of the cost.
