The cost of your website is determined by many factors. The type of website that you are asking for, how many pages, and what functionality all help determine the price. Do you need E-Commerce capabilities? Websites with shopping carts generally start at $2999, depending on how many items you are selling and if the items need UPC codes etc. Also, if content needs to be developed or if you already have content and photos or videos, are all taken into consideration when determining price.
We first do an initial consultation, to determine the result the client wants to achieve with the site. We have them talk about their business hurdles and how an engineered custom designed software solution or website solution will help them automate marketing processes, or business processes to obtain efficiency and efficacy in their organization. We have them fill out a questionnaire and site map worksheet to determine the basic structure of the site. If the customer wishes to proceed, we write a proposal, and mail it to the customer to get their signature. A detailed schedule and payment plan are outlined in the proposal. We then proceed to start building your custom site.
The design process is variable. Many of the factors determining time are dependent on the complexity and features that need to be built into the site. If content is provided by the customer, the site can be completed more rapidly. If content needs to be developed, it can add a month or more onto the process. A typical site with content needed, may take up to 2 months. An E-Commerce site may take up to 3 – 4 months to develop, depending on how complex it is.
