This is probably the number one question I hear throughout the week. People do not have a grasp on how much a ‘good’ website should cost. This is understandable for a few reasons:
These reasons are enough to explain why there might be some confusion for a small business owner looking for a website.
But the problem is – when someone asks how much “the average website” costs – it’s hard to give a straight answer. What does average mean anyway? Some website design companies charge by the page – but I don’t think that’s a fair representation of time/costs. I’ve created 50 page websites that have taken the same amount of time as a more complicated 5-page website.
So I created this page for small business owners looking to create a website, with websites beginning at $1,500. While the prices on these website packages are less than my “average website,” this is a good gauge into what I charge my clients looking for a very simple & straightforward website.
Bottom line? There isn’t an ‘average website.’ No two websites are the same because no two clients are the same. I sit down with each of my potential clients and get a feel for how long the process is going to take before I ever think about creating a proposal to work with them on it. Call me crazy, but I treat each of my clients like individuals. Unique business owners that bring their own strengths into helping complete a project like a website.
