You budget will determine the cost. However, there are ways to make a budget stretch. And, often the features you might think you want you don’t need.
There are so many factors determining the cost of a Website. The main ones are:
Use of photos
Number of main pages
How much content is already available
Writing of content
Search Engine Optimization
Social Media tie-in
People want me to quote the cost of a site but are often unwilling to say what their budget is. Simply stated, if your budget is $1000-$1500, I could give you a simple but nice looking site with some training how to keep it updated.
Most of the work of a site is the set up. This means you could have twice the size site but not twice the cost.
Some features that can add to the cost of a site are:
Photo gallery with lots of categories
Image work (color correction, etc.)
Additional illustration or graphics needs
A new or redone logo
Help with content writing
Robust Search Engine Optimization
Posts to go to several Social Media platforms
Many sections in the site
When people are able to tell me what their budget is, I can then tell them what they can get for it. If money is a factor to get everything you want at first, we figure out what can be left out of the project initially and what can be added later when more funds are available.
It is important to write down everything you want your site to include when setting the project up to possibly add later.
