Q. Why do websites cost so much?
A. As with everything in life, you get what you pay for.
There seems to be a prevailing belief that things like website and online marketing should be very cheap. The internet has become a part of our lives that we take for granted, and because we can access so much on the internet without charge a belief has arisen that everything relating to the internet should be free. When it comes to the creation of a website people want to cut corners and try and get it for as cheap as possible. Maybe this has something to do with the fact that a website doesn’t take up a physical space, that you can’t hold it in your hands. But that is one of the great things about a website as well. It isn’t physical, but it can still be seen by anyone, anywhere in the world.
How we work out a websites cost
We work out the websites cost before we start building it. Website can have high function requirements, for example an e-commerce site. They can also have high level design demands. Web Adept look at your project individually. We assess what your website needs, and what you want your website to be and from there we calculate your website’s cost. We provide a realistic quote based on a service which is personal, and aiming to provide a website which is catered to your exact needs. Here are some factors which could affect your potential websites cost –
- Functionality, what do you want your website to be able to do? More functions means more work mean more hours.
- Design, a design can be as complicated as you like, and follows a similar rule to the functionality one above. A more complex design means more work and more hours.
- Content, do you want us to provide content or will you be doing it yourself?
To put it simply, the more you require for a website the more complex it will be to build and the more your website will cost.
