How much does it cost to make a website? Let’s talk money.

The Cost

It depends...

Let's face it there is no one price fits all for a website, it depends largely on what's required; however, I do feel it's important to be open and provide a guideline cost so you know what level of investment I'd be expecting you to make.

Websites are a lot like cars. You can get a second hand economy model that would get you from A to B. Or you can get a sports car that adds prestige and makes your journey much smoother and comfortable.

Pricing explained

Pricing is estimated on a per-project basis. Price depends on the scope of the project and the extent to which I’m involved. The reason I don’t have a fixed pricing list is because each project is unique. Based on industry surveys, however, my pricing is competitive (on national average) with that of qualified independent contractors and small multi-person firms.

Nonetheless, bespoke design and builds typically range from £2.000 - £10.000 depending on your requirements.

We will typically agree on set of project deliverables over an agreed timeframe. To ensure the project moves according to timeframe, I’ll map out a milestone checklist for you – which we’ll all agree on as well. This keeps goals and expectations aligned.

What's our budget?

First, I’ll ask, “What’s your budget?”. Knowing there’s a budget up front, I’ll develop the scope of work around that amount. If not, I’ll provide tiered pricing with good, better and best outcomes. For non-profits clients, I am particularly budget-conscience and do what I can to accommodate project pricing.

It’s all about open and honest communication. Nowhere is that more true than when I’m discussing costs with my clients. Discussing pricing early on is best so we all feel comfortable and I can start working on your project.

Sharing your budget also allows me to determine how much time I can allocate to your project efforts and helps me to help you plan, advise and best invest your money.

What if that's a little more than you were prepared for?

Everything is negotiable. Sometimes what you need can be accomplished in many other ways. If we are working with a limited budget I can offer alternative solution to the problem or we could split delivering some features over a time period.

Estimates, Deposits & Payment

A written estimate / scope of work will be prepared after our initial conversation detailing the project requirements and is based on the amount of time the project is expected to consume.

Project estimates may be considered “not-to-exceed” estimates in accordance with the terms and conditions, provided the scope of the project does not change materially from what was initially discussed. If an adjustment is necessary, it will be presented and approved in writing before work outside the original scope is performed.

All estimates must be signed off by the client before work can begin.

Invoices are issued on delivery for projects that are completed within the calendar month. Projects that extend beyond the calendar month will be billed at the end of each month based on the amount of time consumed.

Payment terms are due upon receipt of an invoice. New clients will be required to provide a at least 30% deposit for services.
