What does a website cost?
That’s not really as simple of an answer as you might think.
The actual designing, developing, coding and building of the website is only a portion of a website project. There is planning, content development, message clarity and a goal assessment before we even get to the actual design process. After that there is SEO, client acquisition, improvements and maintenance.
Over the last 11 years we have built literally hundreds of websites and developed even more marketing and digital strategy plans. What we’ve learned during this time is that developing a structured plan, and then following that plan is paramount – kind of like planning and building a house from the architect’s plans.
Using the house analogy; we like to start by developing a Blueprint of your project. Our Blueprint is a high-level document providing everyone involved with a drone’s eye view of your project. We’ll use this to map out your needs, determine what content you have or what content is needed, what the website should say, how your clients or customers will interact with the site, and finally how you will get customers to the site and get them to engage.
As a starting point; developing a Blueprint for a non-ecommerce website is $999
Coming back around to the budget question…
Let’s say you have a budget around $3,000 or less for your website project. We would highly recommend you hire us to develop your Blueprint, and depending on the results we might suggest a website template, or a pre-made hosted website option like Wix or Weebly. It is unlikely that you’ll find a professional web developer or marketing agency to engage with that budget, but there are certainly solid options available to you.
If you see the value in working with professionals that have many years experience, and a budget in the $5,000 – $15,000 range, we can most likely help you and even offer you a few inclusive monthly packages.
If you’re on your 2nd, 3rd or 4th+ website and are ready to work with an experienced strategic partner that will add value and give you tangible results, along with a budget in the $25,000 – $125,000 range, you’ve come to the right place. This is the type of project we excel at, and the category most of our clients fall into.
Projects over that size are probably too large for our company to handle directly, however we can assist you on sourcing the right company to best support you, and even liaison with them on your behalf if there is a value for you in us doing that.
As we said earlier; we have been in business for over 11 years and have worked on hundreds of projects – with this much real life experience, we have learned what makes for a good fit and a good project all the way around.
