How much will website design cost?

Nov 9th, 2011

While itís easy to think of the cost of your website as overhead or just another business expense, if done right your website is an investment that will pay for itself quickly and many times over. However, websites do cost money upfront, and the cost can vary widely, depending on the design firm you choose. 

There are several factors that can determine the price:

Template or Custom Design. Templates, while cheaper up front, generally do not hold their value over time and usually end up costing you more in the long run. A large percentage of our customers contacted us because they outgrew their templates and needed a website that was flexible enough to accommodate their needs, or one that they could update themselves.
  • The number of pages and overall size of the website.
  • The number and type of interactive features (blogs, shopping carts, newsletter sign ups, etc.).
  • Whether or not you'll need to be able to add or change content on your own.
  • Whether you'll provide the copy content (words and verbiage on the website) or whether you want to have a professional copywriting service create it for you.
  • Extras. Do you want flash animation or custom designed icons, photography, or extra graphics?
  • The website design company you choose.
