What will it cost?:  what is your budget?Pricing

How much does a website cost?

The most common question any web designer/developer gets is, "How much does a website cost?" and whilst it's a fair question the answer is not so straightforward. It really depends on the functionality you want/need and you do get what you pay for.

We are often asked  "can you build me a site just like this one ........................com.au?".  

Bearing in mind that, that particular website may have taken years to develop with thousands upon thousands of investment, marketing and the like, we may respond with
" do you want your site to look the same or just cost the same".

Like any human undertaking, projects need to be performed and delivered under certain constraints. Traditionally, these constraints have been listed as "scope" (quality), "time", and "cost". A change in one affects the other two. So you can have a complex project done fast - but it will cost more. Generally, we say you can only get two of the three factors: completed quickly, low cost, well done.

To better understand your needs and make a cost estimate, it helps to know what we need to find out to provide a quotation.


Typically we need to know:

1. What is the purpose of your project

  • Are we redesigning/developing your old site using similar content with new features?
  • Are you presenting a product/service, intending to sell online?
  • Do you want us to assist with lead conversion, create new leads, etc?

2. Must have/do items (inquiry forms, SMS integration, XML / RSS feeds etc...)

  • Design style (simple, elegant, high end, state of the art)
  • E-commerce requirements
  • Amount of copywriting you want us to do

3. SEO considerations above and beyond what is already built into the platforms we use.

...to name a few.

Cost can then be assessed and quoted based on your needs, and/or if it will work with one of our existing platforms or if you need a completely customised solution.

That all being said ball-park estimates for setup (not including ongoing/monthly fees) can be:

  •    Wordpress - $1800-$4500+
  •    REALONLINE - $2,600 +
  •    Real Estate sites - $5,500+
  •    Custom Solution - $5,000 +
  •    Static site (no CMS) $1000-$1800+ 
  •    1 page starter sites  $500
  •    Small custom apps are based on hourly rates of $90 - $135 / hour
