How Much Does a Website Cost?

One of the most common questions asked upon meeting a potential client is “How much do you charge for a website?”. This can be a difficult question to answer right off the bat, as there are many factors to be considered when preparing a quote for a website project.

It’s important to remember when it comes to website design and development that you get what you pay for. A new website could cost anywhere from $3,500-$35,000 or more depending on what features you want included in your site and whether the project is being completed by a freelancer, a professional web design and development firm or an advertising agency. Web development firms and agencies are typically able to thoroughly plan out your website design project, as they have the staff to address not only design and development but SEO and marketing as well. Web development firms traditionally provide all elements needed including site hosting and support after the initial project is completed.

Some important features to consider when factoring costs for your website project are:

  • Responsive Design: Do you want your website to be responsive? This not only helps create an optimal viewing experience across devices, but also helps improve your search rankings with Google.
  • E-Commerce: Do you need your customers to be able to securely purchase your products online from the website?
  • Content Management System (CMS): Do you need your website to be set up in a CMS system? This will allow you to be able to make content changes to your own site.
  • Custom Development: You may also need additional functionality built for your site which can include basics such as a contact form or blog or more dynamic elements such as document portals or integration with third party platforms.

Some other important costs to consider during a website project would include securing your domain name and website hosting, as well as any ongoing maintenance that you will need in the future. You also may want professional content writing for your new site to assure its effectiveness not only to your visitors but to the search engines.
