How much does it cost to build a website is one of the first question asked by startup founders and business owners who wish to design/redesign their business website. The simple answer is there is no price tag for designing/development a website, rather the cost of building a website is based on the purpose and functionality of the website.

These two factors can be broken down the following outlines:

  • Type of website (startup website, portfolio website, or e-commerce website)
  • Complexity (number of pages, functionality, work to be done, etc.)

To determine the cost of design a website for our clients, we usually ask questions like: Why are your building this website? What’s your budget towards this project? What Impact do you want the website to have to your business? Do you have website you do want your website to look like?

Also, cost of building a website can vary based on business demography and market value. Cost of designing a website can also be determined based on who is handling the project. Are you hiring a freelancer, a junior developer, a senior developer, a designer & developer combined or an agency? An agency is likely to cost higher than a freelancer, but working with a reputable might  be more advantageous compared to a freelancer.

Note: A great website is not built at once, is a continuous process; there always need for improvement. So we advise founders and CEOs to start with few pages or products pages and improve on the long run. Oftentimes, client do say something like: I want a website to look exactly like Website A or Website B, while website A & B has existed for over 5 year. It doesn’t work like that. Just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, same goes to website designing.
