06 Jan How Much Does a Website Cost?
When researching an agency that fits your business needs, it is important not to be swayed by “too good to be true” pricing. It is often just that- too good to be true. Many of partners have hire us because they were unsatisfied with their previous web designer. Normally, they paid a “professional” less than $700 to build a solution for their company and they have issues from start to finish, if there is a finish.
We hear horror stories of web designers holding domain names hostage, failing to complete work, or they fall off the face of the earth. Does price equate to quality? Remember the adage, “you get what you pay for”; the same can be said for web solutions. Yet your financial investment should reflect the functionality of your website.
If you are looking to build a website for your business, you essentially have two options. There are DIY methods such as Wix.com, Weebly.com, and Squarspace.com. These DIY methods are not the best way create a professional web presence. They may serve a purpose for a short period of time but will not ensure longevity and growth for your business. The ideal option is hiring a professional web developer to produce long-term results to your business. This pricing typically ranges from $1,500 – $5,000. This pricing can also vary based on any additional applications needed for your business. However, with a trusted professional you will usually see an immediate return on your investment.
An E-Commerce website pricing can start at $3,500 – $15,000, depending needs and complexity. Usually E-Commerce clients will need assistance setting up a SSL certificate, merchant account, payment processor, shipping integration, and transaction emails. Building an E-Commerce website requires more time and knowledge. Cyber security is really important with any E-Commerce solution. Hiring a professional web designer who has proven skills in this area will not only protect you and your business, but aid in the growth of your company.
