HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST ME?
“it depends” – I’m afraid this is your answer.
Without details of your business or usage, it is very difficult for us to give an exact price.
If you’re still in early stages and need a rough idea, here is a rough guage of prices with a range different levels of functionality:
For a 1-page information website at €150 upto €2000 for a more intense e-commerce solution.
Please Note: These prices are rough estimates (wet finger in the air type) and given at time of writing (February 2018)
We do offer a free no obligation proposal for all potential website design projects. Just Get in touch, or drop us a call and chat to someone from our friendly team who will be happy to walk you through this.
CAN I GET A WEBSITE FOR FREE OR VERY CHEAP?
Yes, I will even provide you with a program for free or you can head over to Wix or one of the other many website builders out there and you can pick a template and get a very basic website up and running for free or very low cost. BUT before you start doing it yourself, please take a read of this article here The biggest mistakes of DIY websites.
You can also likely find someone abroad (outside the UK/Spain) who will build a site for you that will only cost you a few hundred £’s or €’s.
However, you’ll find the websites that you’ll get from these sources will be of a very low quality. They will lack the security measures, the functionality, the ease of use and content management I put into mine. From a professional standpoint, I do not recommend these, the websites I deliver cost more as they are bespoke, project managed, developed, and coded to a very high standard. They also undergo Q&A and are SEO optimised.
These are the questions you should ask yourself if you’re looking for a cheap website:
- – Will I actually own the website & its code or am I just renting the use of it?
- – Will someone design this with my business model in mind, or just drop an ill-fitting template in place?
- – Will it work well on mobile phones & tablets?
- – Will it be secure?
- – Will it rank well on search engines?
- – Will my clients be able to tell it’s a budget website?
- – Will I get what I pay for?
- – Will it portray my business?
- – Will I get support for a period of time on completion?
WHAT OTHER COSTS ARE THERE?
Website hosting – once your website is built, it needs somewhere to be hosted. This is what allows your website to appear live on the internet.
Our managed website hosting starts at €30incl VAT/IVA per Year.
Email Hosting – most of the time you’re going to need an email address. Not a Gmail, but something like firstname.lastname@example.org
We provide 2 custom emails as standard for all our clients.
Domain registration – you will need a domain name for your website. This comes with an annual fee of approx. €7-20 a year, Although we strongly suggest you obtain this yourself to stop transfer fee’s at a later stage.
SSL certificates – With the increased need for security online, we now offer an ssl certificate as part of all our website builds. This is optional unless you’re an ecommerce site, however an ssl certificate does offer security and SEO ranking benefits.
Costing per year is €199+vat.
BEFORE / AFTER
I WOULD LIKE A LOGO OR BUSINESS CARDS. CAN YOU DO THEM TOO?
Sure, we also offer affiliated services, including:
- Logo design
- Business card design
- Email design
Please contact us for more details.
These service costs are additional to the website design cost.
I CAN’T AFFORD TO PAY ALL AT ONCE, WHAT CAN I DO?
Paying the full price upfront can be daunting and may leave you feeling a little insecure about parting with all that money without seeing the end product first.Because of this all our website builds work off a 4 phase process which staggers the payment over 4 phases. This makes the site more affordable and allows you to see your website progress before making full payment:
Click each heading to find out more information
This is the design of your website, created from scratch by one of our designers. It is the first stage and only 25% of the overall cost is due in this phase.At the end of phase 1, we will deliver: design of the site and all subsequent pages in PDF format to be signed off for development phase.
This is the stage in which the site is developed and coded into a fully functioning website on our staging server behind a password. During this stage only dummy content or limited content is used to demonstrate design, operation, and functionality. A second 25% is due in this stage.
The Content and Tweaking
This is the stage in which we populate the site with the agreed content (within the scope of the requirements given in this proposal).For Ecommerce projects, we will also populate products, shipping set up, and payment functionality within this phase.In the case of a website re-design, where applicable, we can source content from the previous site.
The Testing & Going Live
In this stage, we perform website interoperability and mobile testing (and in the cases where SEO optimisation is required, SEO optimisation will be performed alongside testing).
The final 50% is due at the end of phase 4 and the project is signed off to go live.
If our 4 phase payment plan still looks a little daunting, we do also offer monthly payment solutions. Please get in touch to discuss more.
