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.
Branding can either be broken into individual tasks – like logo design or tagline creation – or can be combined into a branding project that encompasses a multitude of branding tasks.
Our standard, blended fee for most branding services is $75 /hr – but when combined into a larger project, there is an opportunity for a lower hourly rate.
For example, here are some estimates for individual branding projects…
|Task||Est. Hours||Est. Cost|
|Business Card Design||3||$225|
Or maybe you are looking for a new brand development project for a new business or updating an old company brand. This would include multiple tasks to support the new branding. This means you would be looking for a Branding Development Project that would offer some discount rates.
Websites can be very simple or quite complex. The simpler the website (1-2 pages, few features) can be much less expensive than a more complex website (10 pages, lots of features). The cost of a website is very similar to buying a car. The simpler the car with minimal features is much less than a car full of new features.
Below are some examples of pricing estimates based on hypothetical requirements.

Each website is estimated based on certain criteria…
- Number of pages
- Amount of content on each page
- Number of features
- Complexity of each feature
- Copywriting and imagery creation
Digital marketing is a huge pool of opportunities. See our Digital Marketing page for many of the services we offer. Digital marketing is usually not a one-off project, but rather an ongoing initiative that grows over time. Some digital marketing efforts can be one-offs – like a limited sweepstakes/contest or a Social media promotion – but many are an on-going project like email marketing, paid search marketing or retargeting ad marketing.
For one-off projects, we will estimate them for you. For all others, we recommend our Monthly Service Packages listed in the section below.
