A very common question, and one that will make most web designers and developers twitch: What does a website cost? This question ties directly into the age-old question: “How long is a piece of string?” Website costs differ depending on the level of design, development and additional marketing that may be required per site.   Professional design There are several applications and web service providers out there that can offer you a “cheap website” solution, or even a “free website”. This may be suitable for a personal site or blog, but is definitely not recommended for a company website. No matter how small your business may be, we recommend starting out with a clean and professional website. If you look the part, potential customers will be 68% more likely to believe in the success of your products and services. If your website is not designed uniquely or professionally, you stand the chance of damaging your brand. Also, if the website is not developed according to certain standards, some search engines may ban your website from displaying in their search results.   Quality over Quantity Don’t run the risk of paying more than you had originally budgeted for whilst trying to fix a website that was badly created. We offer affordable website design and development, that is unique and professional. We are prepared to work within your budget.   So, what DOES a website cost?
