web design FAQ
There’s not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project, so we’ll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a quote based on that assessment.
Generic projects like landing page cost $250 (including Copywriting and Email opt-in newsletter),
Simple 5 page business website cost $450 (including SEO and Graphic work)
On average, we shoot for a six to eight week turnaround, but the pace of any project is set by each client. How much input you can provide during the initial stages, your availability with feedback, how soon the content is ready – all this affects the speed of completion. The functionality needs may also play a role – more complex sites will take more time to develop.
There are two main factors that we have found to delay website design projects.
- Lack of Content: If content hasn’t been written for the website and the launch of the website is pending due to content not being added by our clients, then this will slow the launch or delay it indefinitely. It’s a good idea to think about the structure of the website, website content architecture and content on the website before or as soon as you engage with us. Then our team can help you fill in the gaps.
- Approval Process & Time: When working with large organisations or extremely busy business owners, we have found that approvals by committee take the longest. It’s important to delegate the authority for approvals and feedback to a small select group leading the website project. Usually no bigger than 3 people with experience or a background in digital technology or the web. Small business owners that are time poor should set aside weekly appointments to keep things on track to deliver approvals in a timely manner. The faster we can get those approvals, the faster we can move forward and deliver your project.
For most projects, equal payments are made at the start 50%, and the end of the project %50, but we can work with you to set up a schedule that meets your needs. We understand that this is a big investment and want to help you budget for the expense in whatever way possible.
You have multiple options when it comes to managing and looking after your website.
We like to empower our clients to be able to do all of the updates and management themselves.
If you do require help and ongoing maintenance, we do provide managed services at a monthly rate with set monthly hours for updates, security and to help you with new content and updates when you need it.
