The Costs of a Website
Asking how much it costs to build and maintain a website is like asking how much it costs to own a car. It’s definitely a fair question, but the price of owning a website can vary considerably and is difficult to gauge.
You may imagine that the bulk of the costs would be in coding and designing the website, and in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s you would be right. In 2014 this is no longer the case, although the costs are actually about the same to build a website today as they were 15 years ago. Currently about 50% of a website’s budget goes towards design tasks, and the remainder of the budget should go towards marketing the website so it builds a client base and makes money.
Basic Website Price
For under $1,000, you can get a website that will generally be designed and developed meeting your expectations. For that cost, the website will be simple, but user friendly and easy to maintain.
Business Website Price
For the price of $1,000 to $2,500 you can expect your business website to be marketed well. You should expect a higher quality of design, and expect a more customized look in general. Social media services such as Facebook and Twitter can also be created and maintained!
E-Commerce Website Price
If you spend above $2,500, for the most part you can expect to sit back and have your website built and marketed for your business. You can expect a blog, a solid design, as well as social media integration, as well as the ability to sell digital and physical products online!
