FACTORS THAT AFFECT WEB DEVELOPMENT PRICING
Is Your Site Basic or Complex?
The biggest factor affecting the price of a website is time. The more complex a site is, the more time that is required to design and develop it. It is relatively easy to find a low cost provider to build a website but our focus is on building a website that will be effective for your business. A typical entry level price range for a basic business website that we develop is $3,000 to $5,000.
When we create a site for you - you own it. You own the website and all of the code, if you ever want a copy of it we will provide it to you upon request. We go out of our way to use open source, well-supported tools that are non-proprietary so you never feel obligated to have to use our services once the site has been built.
Your Selection of a Service Provider?
You have a broad range of choices when selecting an individual or company to develop your site. There are freelancers or offshore companies who offer a very low hourly or project rate but can take a long time to complete the project, despite promises. There are full service agencies in the United States who offer a full array of services at rates ranging from $50 to $225/hour. It is worth your time to carefully select your developer and the hourly rate should certainly not be the most important consideration.
All of the websites that we create are custom templates, designed and built just for you. Typically we will develop a site using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS), but also can develop sites using WordPress, Drupal, or HTML 5 (using Bootstrap) if you prefer. Customs code needed? Not a problem!
