Bottom line… expect to pay between $2,000 – $8,000 for a good website. This price depends on how complex and feature-rich your site will be – but know that you get what you pay for.
We have had many customers say, “my 15-year-old nephew does some HTML and can do our site for $500”. These people usually end up with an inferior product and come back to us for a professional, beautiful website. Same goes with the people who think it’s easy to go build their own on Squarespace or some other do-it-yourself app – there is a lot more to building a website than just placing some text and images on a page.
Also, if you want that professional and beautiful website to stay strong, secure and searchable, consider subscribing to a monthly package (but not required if you have in-house resources to manage this). Website development or digital marketing is never done. Similar to yard work,… you can have the best crew come out and landscape your yard, but if you don’t maintain it the rest of the summer, it will quickly become vulnerable, disordered, and ugly.
We have been building websites for over 20 years and know EXACTLY what needs to be done to have a successful and strong website.
