How Much Does A Website Cost?
Our website design ranges from £300 to £4500 with a £300 annual hosting maintenance
Web design is a complex and highly skilled undertaking, with websites often taking 100+ hours to be properly built, tested, and published. Like any specialization, the skills needed to produce professional grade websites took years of hands-on training and experience to acquire. The rate Media Design charges, is less about turning a large profit, but rather about creating a reasonable turn for this investment.
Many business owners today still question the importance of investing in a professionally designed website, especially with the emergence of “free” website builders. In theory, it makes sense – Why would you pay someone thousands of dollars for something you can do yourself for free? While it’s true professional web design can come with a notable price tag, the benefits offered over “free” website options are invaluable. This includes search engine optimization, mobile responsiveness, social media integration, e-commerce solutions and analytics tracking, and most importantly your time away from running your business just to name a few.
Having a company website is no longer an option or a luxury, it’s a requirement for success. That being said, there is no ‘one size fits all’ pricing in the realm of website design. The cost of a website can vary greatly – even among companies in the same industry – depending on an ever-evolving number of design variables. Functionality, number of unique pages, complexity of design, incorporated features, degree of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) implementation. Any one of these factors can dramatically impact the total cost of a website.
The question isn’t just ‘how much will my new website cost? the question is, what should my expectations be for the budget I have?
The truth is the cost of a new website can range from free, to over $3,500 here at Media Design. The best solution for you will depend on how you, your goals and your budget align together.
Your goals, your budget and your personal involvement will all factor in to what type of website you will have.
