How much website design costs
A lot goes into what would seem to be a simple website design. Website design is an essential element of any business’s digital presence. It involves more than just picking a color scheme and adding images; it requires understanding the needs of the customer, setting up the website for optimal user experience, providing quality content and visuals, and ensuring that all aspects of the website are functioning properly.
With that being said, here are the main aspects of Website Design, and what the cost breakdowns are for just about any agency out there:
|Website Design||$100 - $70,000|
|Copywriting||$100 - $1,000 / Page|
|Website Development||$100 - $100,000|
|Website Maintenance||$400 - $100,000 / Year|
How much is a DIY website builder?
DIY website builders seem to be everywhere these days. And with that, there is a lot of noise on the internet. Before talking about whether or not these services work well, let’s get into the pricing breakdowns:
|WordPress||$0 - $500 / Month|
|GoDaddy||$7 - $15 / Month|
|Squarespace||$16 - $54 / Month|
|WIX||$23 - $500+ / Month|
The problem with services like these are 2 fold. First, they take time, and a lot of it. Second, if your website is not done right, then it won’t be found, and it won’t convert. And if your website is not converting, then you are not making money on your investment.
What do we charge?
This is usually where you hear the dreaded, “It depends” statement. But in order to give you the most accurate answer possible, we have created a calculator that can get pretty close to actual prices.
What's the deal with DIY builders?
Most website builders are designed to help you with getting going yourself. This can be great, but it can also be problematic. It’s a lot like building your own physical store. You need to know what you’re doing and it can be a long, hard process. And you may not be privy to all the laws and regulations that you need to follow. Not to mention that your customers might not want to shop at a place that was clearly built by an amateur.
Yes, all of these things can be the same when designing a website. For instance, there are several regulations and laws that one must follow in order to have a website online. And what happens if you don’t follow these regulations? You could be SUED!
Additionally, people can be incredibly picky about the way your website looks and how it operates. If you don’t believe me, then I would have you look to yourself and how you handle websites. What about your friends, spouse, neighbor, friends… In fact, 94% of users will leave your website simply because of low-quality design according to one study. The same study shows that 75% of a company’s credibility is based on website design!
This doesn’t mean that you can’t pull off a making a website yourself. In fact, if you are a start-up business, and don’t have much funding, then we recommend doing it. We actually have our own service for this very thing. But you have to be extremely careful, as you can make bad first impressions based on how your website looks and works.
What other costs are there?
Most people think that once you have a website created, you don’t have any further costs. There seems to be a belief that the website is made, and leads just come pouring in. But I want you to think through how sales usually works. When you hire a sales person, does that person simply make all of the leads appear? Well, they can to some degree (and so can your site to a degree), but that’s not how things are these days. Usually you need some kind of marketing.
And this is where the additional cost comes into play. In order to get your website eyeballs to help you gain leads and get sales, you need to market it properly.
You don’t necessarily need to break the bank, but you should plan for some additional costs. Most often this will mean paid advertising on various platforms such as Google or Facebook. It should also include spending money on content creation or social media management. And to get the most out of your website, you will want to hire an agency to get you to the top of search engines.
Also, depending on what type of website you have, you may need to pay a hosting fee and renewal fees for domain names and other services that help keep your site running smoothly.
|Hosting||$1.99 - $500 / Month|
|SEO||$300 - $10,000 / Month|
|Advertising||$0 - $10,000 / Month|
Sales Person Vs. Website
Just like there can be no replacement for a good sales person, there can also be no replacement for a great website. A website is the face of your business and the first impression potential customers have. A great website will not only showcase your services, but also make it easier for potential customers to find what they are looking for. And it can do it 24 hours a day!
Additionally, your website doesn’t need commission prices. It only needs the things your business needs; upkeep and great marketing.
But remember, like a sales person, if your website is doesn’t look great and doesn’t say the right things, then it won’t get sales. You need to make sure that your website design is modern, professional and easy to navigate. You also need to ensure that the content is well written, relevant, and tailored to a particular audience or markets.
To help really understand the comparison, we placed the average cost of a sales person:
|Salary||$52,000 - $70,000 / Year|
|Commission||20% - 30% of Gross Margins|
|Insurance||$8,000 - $22,000 / Year|
|Training||$400 - $3,000 / Year|
