How much does a website cost?
When thinking of a website you need to decide what the major purpose of the site is.
For example my online learning site has a different approach and feel than this site.
My other website focuses more on starting a business and coaching.
If you follow any of my posts you'll know I shared a statistic that according to Google 55% of businesses do not have a website.
In this day and age that's unbelievable.
Your website is your hub. It's where people will come to know who you are and what you have to offer.
It's also a great way for customers to differentiate you from the crowd.
Website design is important because 46.1% of people say a websites's design is the number one gauge they use for the credibility of a company.
That means your site can't look DIY. There are certain components every website needs. If you don't know what those elements are you could be saving money by doing it yourself but you'll be left with a website that does not convert.
When looking to have a website built, talk to several designers and find out what they have to offer. Get a feel for their style and designs. The web designer you hire needs to have good communication skills. If you ask a question and they skirt the issue or make you feel like your input doesn't matter, that's a red flag.
Hiring a web designer is like hiring a wedding photographer. Can they capture your essence? Are they able to show your real personality? Do they "get" you? Will you work well together? You want to make sure your web designer knows what you want and can show case your business in the best light possible.
If your website isn't working for you why not contact me about a website analysis.
How much does it cost is a question I'm asked most often when people come to me for creating their website.
The answer really depends on the type of site you are looking for. Do you want an
e-commerce site? Are you looking for a site that showcases your business but does not sell products?
The figures you will find in this infographic aren't set in stone but they are a good starting point.
When the infographic states you get what you pay for when it comes to paying for websites it's true. That being said, I paid over $2,000 for my first site that was nothing more than a few pages and a gallery for my images. You would think for that amount I would have a fabulous site but it was a nightmare. That's one of the reasons I learned how to create my own websites.
As for domain name costs make sure you check to see if a there are any sales on Godaddy.com I've seen them charge as little as $1.99 for the first year.
There's a lot of information in this infographic but what do you find most interesting?
