Website costs and why they are so different

Website design can wildly vary in cost! How do you know if you are getting a good deal or value for money?

We have seen website designers in Torbay and across Devon offering websites for as little as £50, with some agencies charging over £10,000 (potentially even more!).

Why such a huge difference? A lot depends on the results you require, features and how you want your business to be portrayed.

Let’s find out how much a website design costs.

How much a website design can cost! (and what to expect for your money!)

£50 to £500 – Usually a freelancer or solo web developer. Likely to be working from home, using a set theme without any branding, personalisation or any custom graphics. Be wary of solutions that seem too cheap, and investigate how long the person has been in business or likely to be!

Frankman – If this is your maximum budget, then it may be worth considering a single-page website with Frankman, which is more likely to get found on Google and give you a return on your investment.

£800 to £1,550 – You should expect some elements of a bespoke design for this amount. Check if the website designer has a technical background. Or vice versa, a web developer who doesn’t know graphic design or marketing.

Frankman – Within this budget range, you could get Frankman’s Standard 10 page website, or a 5 page Growth website.

£1,800 to £3,500 – For this amount, you can get good quality and well-built brochure-style website that will perform well if you just have a few pages. You should still expect a customised and well-planned out website, but additional features may be limited. Check, you may be tied into a contract or using an unfriendly back end system linked to a specified provider. In this event, if you wanted to move your website to another solution, you would effectively lose your site.

Frankman – This would be a 5 – 12 page premium design, or if you need more pages you could have 15 pages on our Growth package.

£3,500 to £6,000 – This is the fee you should expect to pay from a well-established and reputable agency. They should be supported by good credentials and affiliations. Supporting you with a great website design as well as a variety of complementary services, such as Design, Marketing, Copywriting, SEO, Hosting, Domains, and Photography. All supporting services are focused on the success of your website and the growth of your business.

Frankman – If you have more budget to achieve your goals we would highly recommend looking into the add-ons and considering professional copywriting for photography. Perhaps even some digital marketing to give your new website launch and extra boost.

£6,000 to £10,000 – This would be a very high-end website, with bespoke functionality, and intricate elements that were bespoke coded for their specific requirements. You can also pay up to this amount (and much more) for certain e-commerce websites and solutions.

Frankman – This would be a custom website offering with bespoke functionality, please do ask us if you are looking for something specific.

Pro Tip – When comparing website quotations, ensure they are like for like. A lower priced website may be limited in certain areas. You should always ask at the quoting stage what is included, look out for hidden extras or additional charges.
