All work is quoted on a per project basis and takes into consideration the type of work and time required. Generally speaking, an experienced web and graphic designer will charge between $65 – $120 per hour.
How much does a website cost?
Pricing a website project depends on several factors, such as the scale of the project, the type of coding required and the amount of custom graphics and code. Website design and development should be viewed as a service, not a product. Building a website is a collaborative effort and partnership between the business and designer that takes continued time and effort.
The definition of success for your website
Do you want your site to look like a piece of art, a visual representation of the uniqueness of what sets your business apart from the competition? Or do you want it to be simple, clean and highly SEO optimized? Do you want to have the latest and greatest features? As a standard, your website should be built using current coding standards and be optimized for all devices (tablet, desktop and mobile).
Your website is a business tool and usually the first place people will go to check out your company and services. The first impression will go a long way in attracting the right customers and is the most cost effective way to market your business. Adding in social media and a marketing plan rounds it out and gives you insight about your customer behaviour. Analytics data is available and can provide you with key insights about demographic information and customer behaviour. This data can help you make educated decisions as you continue to evolve your business and products.
Your web designer should be asking questions and learning about your business to determine your goals. Having a clear understanding of what you want to achieve with the website is important in the ultimate success of the project. Your web designer can facilitate that conversation to get started.
