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!

£800 to £1,500 – 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.

£1,500 to £3,500 – For this sum, 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 offers website packages starting from £1500.

£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.

£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.

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.

Be savvy with your investment

We recognise that a website can be a big investment for any business, and we want to ensure that your investment is successful for your business.

Don’t throw your money away!
Sadly, we see too many businesses who have invested their valuable time and money in a website and not got any results at all.

Be wary of options that seem too cheap!
A good, well-planned out website takes time, it is one of your most powerful marketing tools. It may save you money initially but could cost you a lot more in the long term.
