So how much does it cost to have a web site developed?
Well, how much is a car, a house or a vacation trip?
No easy answer. Depends on options, rooms, location.
Same thing with a web site; depends on a number of
factors... number of nodes, number of "pages",
how much custom design work is put into each page, custom
graphics requirements, script programming, server side
programming, database design, payment server integration,
doesn't help you that much...
...so here's how we come up with a price.
Typically most clients prefer to know what things are
going to cost before work commences. For each project
or project phase, a flat cost (plus disbursements) is
estimated based on anticipated working time. As long
as requirements and specifications don't change too
much during the course of development, you know how
much you pay from the start. No surprises.
If specs are initially loose due to unknown factors,
we may provide a small plus or minus percentage. For
example, if some criteria is not known at the time a
project commences, we may say the project will cost
$nnn (+ or - 10%). If specs are very vague, the range
could be as high as 25% or 35%, but we like to discourage
this degree of looseness.
Another option, where project boundaries are not all
that firm, is to request work on a hourly or daily basis.
We typically do small maintenance activities using this
approach, but it can also be applied to full projects.
Call for rates.
I'm really on a tight budget
Depending on your requirements, a full custom site
can run from $3,000 up to several thousand dollars.
If you are working on a budget and you don't mind some
compromises, we can design your site with budget in
mind. These are basic information sites consisting of
from 3-6 "pages" and usually run from as low
as $500 to about $1,200.
Add custom graphics work, forms, animation, shopping
cart, or other bells and whistles, though, and the cost
can double or quadruple for the same number of pages.
