How much does a website cost?

Website Cost

It’s not a question of “do you need a website.” We all know the answer is a resounding “yes” if you want to be found online. But how much is it going to cost?

Website Design & Development Costs

A website project includes outlining the purpose and calls-to-action, designing the look and feel, and developing the functionality. How much a website cost depends on what you need and your business.

Small Business Brochure Websites
$2,500 – $8,500

Do you simply need a solution for your customers and potential customers to get more information about you? An informational or “brochure” website may be the perfect fit. 

Typically, a website like this has 20 pages or less, basic functionality, and stock photography. The cost for this website project could start at $2500. Though, that’s just the beginning. Investing in custom photography and custom interior page designs can help make your website stand out from the competition.   

Medium-size Business Custom Designed Websites
$10,000 – $25,000

Basic functionality doesn’t work for everyone. Custom art and design will set your business apart from the competition. Investing in custom functionality to automate some of your business tasks can really pay off. This is the case for medium-size businesses and associations. 

Some examples of custom application programming would be: 

  • membership sign up forms
  • dues renewals
  • event registration
  • job applications

With 20 to 75 pages of content, a powerful CMS that allows you to edit content on the fly, custom layouts and images, custom photography and/or animations, and custom functionality, budget $10,000 to $25,000 for a new website.

E-Commerce Website
$8,000 – $50,000

If your business is all about selling products, then an e-commerce site is what you need. It will work 24/7 for your business. 

Customers can browse and buy products, pay online, and receive shipping notifications. Run promotions and sales for products, or offer discounts to new customers. You’ll need professional photos of your products, creative marketing messaging, curated product descriptions, a payment gateway, and shipping set up. The amount of products, integrations, and custom needs, this website project has the broadest range – but keep in mind, it is your online storefront.
