To answer this question we must first consider the type of website you are trying to build.
Informational sites generally present your visitors with details about your company’s history, capabilities, products / services and a contact form. Those are the basics that can be augmented with animated design components, layered navigational buttons, a homepage slideshow, and so on. The combinations generally cause projects to fall in the $10K – $25K range.
Websites that sell your company’s wares online require individual products / services page, shopping cart, and checkout capabilities, as well as security parameters to be built in. Additionally, you’ll have to craft your terms and conditions, shipping and return policies. Depending upon the number of categories and items, as well as the behind-the-scenes management flexibility, your fees can typically range between $15K – $35K. You can go through the list of eCommerce Development Companies to find the one that fits your needs best.
Beyond the two types of sites listed above, there is a third category… not for the faint of heart. Multi-functional websites include elements that enable interactivity between users and site owners. Often, we connect public-facing websites to our Clients’ accounting and CRM systems via API’s. Site visitors can be entertained and re-marketed based upon actions which trigger emails and promotions in real-time. Our team creates solutions that automate your business processes via the website! Comrade Web Agency’s fees for these types of multi-functional websites have spanned $30K, up to six figures.
Many of our clients, at the beginning of their process, ask “how much does website design cost?” But as you you can see, variables all play a role in answering that question.
Remember, though, features and functionality are just the idealized front-end of a finished product. Our process for creating successful online platforms includes a slew of activities that guarantee you high-quality, uniquely designed, bug-free functionality throughout your website. We design and develop mobile-responsive layouts to ensure the best UI/UX for your customers whether they’re using a laptop, tablet or smartphone.
We consider your Buyer Personas, and what THEY are expecting to see, learn and click on your organization’s website. We regularly create specialized items, such as:
Depending on the scope of your project, it can take as little as two months and a core group to launch your site; or as much as six months with several team members working full-time on each aspect of your website to produce your vision! Once the website is launched, we help with technical maintenance, ongoing SEO services, and inbound marketing.
First, let’s talk. Together, we can discuss your ideas, requirements, deadlines and budgets. Our web design agency team collaborates to develop a detailed written proposal that includes our staged approach, technologies to be used, timeframe and fees. The more we learn about your goals, through questionnaires and interviews, the better we can hone our quote and sharpen our pencils – to give you the best quality website for the greatest value.
The truth is that there is no limit to what you can achieve with your website. An attractive, user-friendly design, coupled with engaging, SEO optimized content and a robust, targeted marketing strategy can drive your traffic and sales considerably. That’s why we offer free consultations to potential clients – so we can work with you to establish goals and build something great.
So the answer to “how much does it cost to design a website?” really depends on those factors and variables explored above. If you would like more information and a quote on building or redesigning your website, contact our award-winning agency — we’d be delighted to speak with you.
