We receive a lot of inquiries asking us directly about the cost of developing a website. To be quite honest, it’s very difficult to provide an accurate quote without discussing your business and your objectives with the website. If you’re looking for a ballpark figure… somewhere around $130 – $200/page. The average small business informational website is approximately 10 pages, so between $1,300 – $2,000 for an average website. E-Commerce (online shopping) sites are more expensive, since they require a lot of additional backend coding to function.
It’s key to remember that your website is one of your primary marketing tools and it can have a positive substantial financial impact on your business.
With the popularity of smartphones it’s important for your website to look great on these devices. In the past, websites were not developed to be viewed on mobile devices. We’re sure you’ve visited this type of site on your smartphone – you probably did A LOT of zooming in and out to navigate the site – worse are sites developed in Flash. Flash isn’t supported by mobile web browsers, so users just receive a blank grey screen if they visit this type of site.
Our latest websites are coded to be “responsive”, which means they’re mobile friendly. Based on the browser and screen resolution, the site automatically formats itself to be easily viewed on a mobile device. We also create what is called a mobile site – it is a separate site developed just for mobile users. Let’s discuss the differences…
