A common question that people ask is: “How much does a website cost?”
There is no simple answer to that question. It is best answered with a series of questions. It really depends on what you want. It’s like asking how much a car costs. Do you have a Ford or a Ferrari in mind?
For example, here are some of the questions that need to be answered:
- The website’s purpose?
- When does it need to be ready?
- Will you create your own content (text, images, video, etc.)? Do we a need to involve a copywriter, photographer, graphic designer, videographer, etc.?
- Does the site need e-commerce?
- Does the site need any special functionality such as calendars, forms or forums
- Do you want social media accounts to be setup?
- Do you want ongoing social media management?
- DO you require a blog aspect to the website?
- Do you have a specific design in mind? (colors, logo, fonts, images etc.)?
- Do you require Search Engine Optimization or pay per click advertising?
- Do you require training to be able to update your website in the future?
- Do you require ongoing site maintenance (hosting, security, updates, backups, etc.)?
- What’s your budget?
