This is what every one wants to know – right? The cost of a website varies depending on varying factors, just like the cost of a house or car will vary. I always ask prospective clients about budget up front as this will allow me to guide you in what you can expect for your investment.
A small, custom small business site may only be around $2800. In general, most of my websites start at $3400 and go up in price based on a few factors: complexity, scope and timeline. Projects that begin with in-depth discovery, strategy, and SEO plan, generally start in the $6,000 range. A larger corporate site that requires all of that and more can start at about $12,000.
We’ll discuss your project and create a custom quote based on your needs. Complexity also applies to strategy – a design may look “simple” may actually have a complex sales funnel and costs more than a site with no sales funnel.
Finally, the timeline affects the price. The price quoted is based in part on the amount of time I believe the project will take to complete. Delays due to failure on your part to provide content or feedback will result in a “holding fee” for each week the project extends past the timeline. If you have a tight deadline, a “rush fee” may be charged to complete the project in time.
I’ve developed a step-by-step process to help my clients understand it all.
I schedule my calls/video chats so I can be prepared for your call, have any files open I need and we can have a productive call. Scheduled calls keep my work from being interrupted and allows me to focus on YOU and your project!
For all projects I include my basic SEO Toolkit. The site will be built Search Engine Friendly. But SEO is an ongoing process. I’m happy to give you information for ongoing SEO work.
