How much does a website cost?tdemp
Having a website is one of the most important marketing tools for any business. A website not only serves as an online shopfront for your business but it also gives you an opportunity to inform, engage and convert new customers. Despite these obvious benefits, many small businesses still don’t have a website and one of the reasons for this is the fear of costs. Allow us to provide you with some information and give you a rough idea of what a new website could cost you, read on to find out more.
The first thing to consider is the type of website you need, if you are a small business that doesn’t sell products on line, then you will need a responsive brochure style website. This kind of website is usually 1-5 pages and typically includes a landing page, contact page, social media integration and whatever other pages your business needs, average cost for this is usually £200 – £1000.
The second most common type of websites is ecommerce; this is for businesses wishing to sell products online. This type of website will include the same features as a brochure website but will also allow you to collect payments online via PayPal or card payments, typical cost for this type of website is £1000 – £2500.
The third type of website is a bespoke site, and is the most difficult to estimate a price for. Each business is individual and you may feel that you have a unique idea that doesn’t completely fit into the other two brackets. This type of website can of course be developed for you but a starting cost could be £2500.
Every business is unique, which makes every website development project different. Whilst you can get an estimate of cost, without knowing the particulars of your website it is impossible to get a definite quote. The best thing to do is to contact the developer, discuss your requirements which will allow them to tell you exactly how much your website will cost.
