How Much Does it Cost to Build a Website?

The most common question we get asked is “How much does it cost to build a website?” The answer to this question is always that it depends on what you want your website to achieve. Some of our clients only have the need for a promotional website while others need full e-commerce integration to sell hundreds of products. 

Promotional Websites

If you do most of your business at your in-store location, a simple promotional website is oftentimes enough. The main purpose of a promotional website is to maintain an online presence and showcase your products or service for anyone to see before coming in. These can be linked up to your social media accounts and used to drive traffic back to your website.

If you’re a business just starting out and want to scale up to a much more complex website this is the most affordable choice. Our promotional websites start for as little as $1,995 and can go up to $10,000 as you add more pages. Promotional websites are also great for realtors, models, musicians, restaurants, photographers, writers or freelancers.

Websites for Business

A business website costs more than a promotional website because it needs more functionality. This takes more planning and research as the functionality will depend on the business. A website like Amazon is infinitely more complex than a car dealership that only sells locally.

An e-commerce website that sells a few products and services starts at $5,000 but can easily cost $10,000 or more! That doesn’t mean you have to spend $10,000 right away. We get a lot of clients that start small by selling a few products at a time and slowly scale up from there. As their business grows and they bring in more revenue they add more products and services along the way.

Personal Websites

While you don’t need to spend a lot of money, you also shouldn’t spend too little either. A cheap website like Wix most likely won’t help you achieve your business goals. It can also end up costing you thousands of dollars in missed opportunities. The cheaper services like Wix or Squarespace are built on a business model where you’ll always have to upgrade to a more expensive payment plan to get what you want. 

Final Thoughts

Whether you want to start at $1,995 or spend up to $10,000 or even more, we have a US-Based Full Agency team that can build it. While you don’t want a cheap website, as a business owner you have to be conscious of budget. Having worked with thousands of businesses, our team understands this more than anything else.
