Don’t worry if you are unsure, it is our job to steer you through the process. As a general guide, let’s take a look at the types of website you may encounter.
Types of website.
The type of website you need will determine the price. There are many types of website and many terms used to describe them, for example, Business Websites, Blogs, Ecommerce, Portfolios, Event Websites, Personal Websites, Membership Websites, Informational Websites and so on.
Below are some examples of the more popular types.
Brochure websites are like digital business cards, they are used to advertising your services and products. The sorts of pages on the site would be: Home, Services, About, Team, Testimonials, Contact, etc.
A typical requirement for this type of website would be the ability to add and edit content, something you may be looking to manage yourself.
The price of creating a brochure website is dependent on the amount of content and the features required. A website with a booking form; a blog; or bespoke info graphics is going to cost slightly more than a website with five pages containing text and a few images on each page.
Some brochure websites will also require some bespoke coding, which may increase the price.
Event & Membership.
Event Websites allow you to display detailed information about your events, including schedules, transportation suggestions, maps and more.
They may contain ticketing software for reserving events e.g. concerts, conferences, and can also be used for virtual events.
Membership Websites, require users to sign up to be a member in order to receive full access to their services, tools or resources. Site owners can make money from offerings to members, or a site owner may simply want more control over their site’s audience.
An event and membership website will tend to be a little more complex than a brochure website and can often contain more bespoke elements, for this reason, a brochure website can cost a little more.
An e-commerce site or an online store, allows you to take online payments for products or services. Stores can function as standalone websites, or be combined with a blog or corporate website.
The complexity of the websites functions dictate the cost.
There is a bottom line to all the above and that is the website needs to perform – what’s the point of building a beautiful looking website if no one visits it?
Therefore, the site needs to work on all devices, load fast, be strongly optimized for search engines (SEO) and offer a great user experience (UX).
Website design success, relies on numerous factors such as effective graphics, UX, SEO, website speed and so on!
Careful thought needs to be given to your long term requirements, as well as the short term. We can help guide you through the options when preparing your estimate.
