It costs how much to build a website for a small business?

 

What it comes down to is how much work is involved in creating a website for your small business. 

More specifically, the two factors in how much work is involved are: the size and complexity of your vision.

To make it easier to understand, a premium, modern website with 10 pages and nothing to fancy is going to cost far less than a intricately customized, 30+ page website with all the fancy animations that capture potential customers attention.

In dollars and cents, the costs could range anywhere from $1500 to upwards of $15,000. Yeah. Whoa.

With such a huge variance in prices, let’s try to quickly dissect how you can get a realistic estimate for what it’ll cost shall we?

Let’s keep in mind this is relevant for small to medium sized businesses. Not Apple, Tesla, Amazon or any of those big wigs with unlimited pockets and a full team of in house designers and developers making more money than a brand new lambo.

Designing + Developing a business website [broken down]

One of the biggest gripes of searching for a website designer or developer is that you find someone and.. there’s no price, or the prices they do have make no sense and range from super cheap to way too expensive.

We believe that the process should be transparent, with no hidden fees or surprises a few weeks down the road when it comes to pay and your website all of a sudden has $1227 extra charges added on. THATS A NO NO.

What are the factors that go into the price of building a small business website? Well let’s tell you shall we:

  1. Page volume: If you have few pages to develop and design, it’ll cost less, its fairly simple. Should you need more pages, a good rule of thumb is ~$100/page.
  2. Custom site layout: Nobody codes websites totally from scratch anymore, it’s time consuming and costly for the developer and in turn, the consumer. However, there’s still tonnes of customization still left to get your site to where you want it to go. Templates are a huge part in why we charge $1500-$2300 instead of $10,000 or more.
  3. Custom images & graphics: You want your customer to be intrigued and in turn converted into a paying customer. Fancy images and graphics give your site a genuine one of a kind look, but it comes at a cost.
  4. Custom logo: It’s not needed, but it gives your site a stand out feel and separates you from the competition.
  5. Website content creation: Thoughtful, persuasive content is the heart of any website. If you don’t have any content when launching your site, people will leave as there’s nothing keep them there. This is one of the major obstacles in launching a website. Clients struggle as its time consuming and difficult. This is why we began offering this service on our top level offerings.

Tip #1: What if it’s too expensive to start right away?

We understand that a lump sum will be difficult to pay right away, especially when first starting your web journey. After the initial deposit of 15%, we break our payments into 3 segments throughout the journey so it never feels like “too much”.

We hope this helps!
