How much does web design cost?

Mar 22, 2018

A web designer is well worth their hourly rate. Your website will benefit from their expertise and specialised skills. The total cost of your job will depend on the type of work required and the complexity of your site. The cost can increase in some cases, if you choose to add extra design services. For a more extensive look at the various factors influencing cost read below.

Considerations

A website is a great way to reach customers and share information with them about your business. Whether you already have a site that needs updates or you need to create one, a web designer can help.

There are a lot of different types of web design services. Take some time to figure out what your site should do and what it should look like. Knowing this before you start the search can help you find the right web designer.

Your Goals

If you haven't yet put your business online, you need to build your website! A website helps you look credible and trustworthy. It's also a great way to show off your work or product line.

Your existing site may need some work. Don't let your business information get out of date. Make sure you keep it current with regular maintenance. Updating information is a simple change.

If you do have an old site, it might need a complete overhaul. You'll want a current, modern site that reflects well on your business or personal brand. Plan to upgrade your site as website technology advances.

Type of Website

With many types of websites available, consider what's best for your needs. Remember that you can combine different elements to create your perfect website. Share information with your customers through an industry-related blog as well as your business' details. Make sure itis also easy for customers to contact you.

An e-commerce website can help if you plan to sell your products online. You may also want a personal website for blogging or to promote your personal brand. These types of sites are a great tool for your job search. You can host an online portfolio on your site or even link to your social media accounts.

Type of Content

A website’s structure usually includes both written and visual content. A web designer works with both types to create beautiful websites.

Visual content includes both images and design elements. This could be the header in your design, product photos, or images of your storefront. A designer will work out the best way to display these images to make your site interesting and engaging. 

Written information about your business is also important. Include a description of your business, your hours, or your pricing structure.

Blogs are another great way to add meaningful content to attract visitors. Some designers may also offer writing services so be sure to ask.

Time

Building a new website from scratch can take some time. Your web designer will need to focus on developing a layout. Then, they will need to create written and visual content for the site alongside the web pages. Once you've approved everything, your site can be published.

Your web designer might need to research into your business too. Provide them with background information or promotional material to help with this process.

Building or redesigning a website can take a while to complete. Your website's timeline will vary depending on the design's complexity.

Minor edits or updates are often completed on the same day you send them to your designer.

Experience

Your web designer should have both in-depth knowledge of websites and experience working on them. Website technology is constantly changing. Make sure you also check to see that they've kept up with their knowledge.

Ask to see samples of their work. Look for the things you want for your site. If they have e-commerce sites in their portfolio, you know they have the qualifications to create your website.

You can also ask for reviews from their previous clients. Reviews will give you a better idea of what your web designer is like to work with. Previous clients may share thoughts on pricing and impressions of the final product.

Location

You won't always need to find a web designer close by. As they work online with electronic files, you can find the perfect pro no matter where you are.

Remember that the designer's hourly rate is calculated based on the cost of living in their area. If it seems higher or lower than you'd expect, look at their location. Bigger cities generally have a higher cost of living that will inflate these costs.

I wanted a 2nd website for my clinic and after my first meeting with Richie I had my first draft within a couple of days. All changes and refinement were done timely and correctly. Richie is very good with communication and always comes up with great ideas. His fees are competitive and very reasonable. Richie has been a good choice.

These guys are something else! My new website is now on the first page of Google! This is my 2nd time working with Molos and his team and they have been brilliant from start to finish. Their advice and support during the creation process was invaluable. I could not be happier with the final look of the website and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to others. Thank you so much guys, I really mean it.
