First Idea

  • Marketing your website online ~ This would require consultation but advised.

Images and Graphics Budget

  • Budgeting for website images is an important decision
  • This is because images can cost from five to hundreds of dollars in the good images-stocks
  • However budget at least $250 for getting the enough images
  • Ideally, getting a good professional photographer who can go working on your location is best choice. I also provide this service.

Preparation for Your Web Content

  • Once the process reaches the text phase, a large expense for small business companies is to write their professional content
  • Costs can be as high as $100 per page if you need content writers

Do You Need a Mobile Layout?

  • Mobile devices are being used more and more nowadays; hence your site should function easily and be a comfortable fit for your visitors
  • Mobile design is different from desktop design, it means your site will automatically change layout to look "very smart" on smart devices
  • This design can cost 30% to 40% more on top of the desktop version

Remember Maintenance Cost!

  • Maintaining your website is important, many small business handle it themselves, but this is not the best approach. Letting a professional do it frees up more time to take care your clients
  • Maintenance costs will depend on your needs & expectations (submit your request for quotation)
  • Budget a minimum for a backup and restore procedure in the event your site faces a problem
  • More charges will be incurred if additional work, such as updating content, images, newsletters, media, etc. are needed

So How Much Is It?

  • For a small business website, a good budget point would be starting at $1500 to bring you from concept to the final design and implementation
  • Don’t skimp on the quality of professional images; if you do, visitors won’t stay on your website for reading your long business text
