When it comes to determining how much does a new website cost, it comes down to a very simple fact that you get what you pay for. A cheaper website will have less content and fewer features, while a more expensive website will have lots of features and functionalities. Your overall website costs depend on functionalities and web interactive elements.
Whenever anyone thinks of web design, they often only consider the eye-catching appearance of the website. Like every other goods and service, the costs connected with designing, developing a website have changed over time. A website’s value is completely different in 2018 than it was even a few years ago. As website designing has become more streamlined in recent years, the cost of a website has gone down, making it a more effective investment than ever for new businesses.
The average cost of building a new website is now lower than before.
Some of the important questions any Digital Agency will ask your business in order to determine complexity, timeframe, and cost are:
a) What are your values, level of experience in the industry, your vision of the future, size, location, and background?
b) What are your goals and who's your target audience for this project?
c) Does your business have an existing website?
d) Who are your main competitors?
e) How much effort will be required after launch, website maintenance, and marketing?
In our 8+ years of experience in the business, we’ve found that the average website costs are as follows:
Small business website design: €3K – €10K
Medium business marketing website design: €6K – €20K
eCommerce, customized databases, or web applications: +€7K – + €20K
Finally, we need to consider what are the ongoing maintenance and digital marketing costs. These maintenance expenses should be included in your budget. Website building is one-time work but keep it up to date is an ongoing process.
Monthly maintenance cost to update existing or new text, photos, products, and content pages on your website. This type of work can be done by us or by our client’s. If the website has an active blog, products more time will be required to update them.
Maintenance cost to update themes, plugins and upgrade framework. Most of the small-medium, business websites we maintain, average about €120 + per month. This cost covers website code updates, backups, reporting, and additional security measures. Updating custom modules may require more time to run the test and manage.
