So, how much do we charge?
"How much is this gonna cost?" is naturally a very common question prospective clients ask.
Most web designers hate this question. It's not that they don't want to tell you. It's just hard to give an answer because it depends on what your requirements actually are, and all the variables that that introduces. They're not trying to be difficult or hide anything. It's no different to that old "how long's a piece of string" question.
Here's the thing - at the end of the day a website is a custom project for the client. To price it properly a good web designer needs answers to lots of questions about your business and goals. Plus requirement questions like:
- How many pages are needed?
- Does the site need to let the client's customers buy products or services from it (i.e. e-commerce)?
- Will it be a membership site so customers can log in to it?
And that's just a few, but these sorts of things add complexity, time and effort - and so naturally affect the price.
... but we have a different approach.
How are we different?
We totally understand that you want at least some idea.
So to make it easier to see what investment you'll likely need to make we introduced the Essentials package.
This is what everyone starts with, and it's what we believe every quality website requires, at a minimum, to be successful.
This may well be all that you require. However, based on your goals and requirements you may want or need more features on your site. These can be purchased as separate optional add ons.
Optional Add Ons
Below are a number of popular "add ons" to further elevate your site. The majority start at just £497 (plus VAT).
Note: these are just some of our popular add ons, so if you don't see an add-on you want then please contact us.
You already get three unique page designs, but you may well fancy some more page layouts.
We can design any extra unique and beautiful pages that you need.
A key factor for a successful website is new, regular content.
We can write engaging copy that appeals to your ideal customer.
Testimonials / Case Studies
Putting trust factors such as testimonials and/or case studies on your website are a great way to convert visitors into customers.
Show customers why they should use you.
Online Store (e-commerce)
Want to sell your products or services, and allow customers to pay online?
We'll design and build you a fully bespoke online shop.
A great way to demonstrate the value to potential customers is to showcase your work with a beautiful online portfolio.
We can absolutely build this for you.
If your business needs to take appointment bookings, we can build an awesome booking system letting customers book appointments directly on your site.
We absolutely agree - we're by no means the cheapest. And there a multitude of reasons for that (go to this article we wrote that touches on this here), or call us and we'll happily explain.
In brief, though we think the old adage of "you get what pay for" truly applies in this space.
We strongly believe that what we provide is an excellent and beneficial service. If you're serious about having your website to work for you, then it has to be good enough.
You have full warranty support for 30 days after launch. After that, only if you want us to be. But we strongly encourage you to subscribe to one of Care Plans.
Even with doing much of the content tweaking yourself, websites themselves are not set-and-forget. Like a car, they do need to be maintained regularly in order to stay tip top and continue to perform well.
All the Care Plans cover things like super-fast hosting, security, software updates and many more things - allowing you to focus on what's important; your business.
