How much will a new website cost?

It’s the most common question I get asked by new clients.

I have been in the web design business since 2004 and I have been involved with designing hundreds of websites but I still can’t give a quick answer to this question. Now I’m not trying to get out of providing a straight answer. I often get the feeling that clients think I am. I even get the uneasy feeling that some new clients believe that I ask so many questions about there business so I can gauge how much I can get away with charging to build their new website.

Regardless of this I still understand that it is actually a fair question to ask. As a business owner you need to make sure you are spending your money wisely. But you must realise that asking how much a website will cost is a bit like walking into a used car dealership and asking how much it will be to buy a car. After the used car salesman has stopped rubbing his hand with glee he will ask what type of car you had in mind. He’ll ask about your budget, what you will use it for, how many people it should hold, if it needs to be practical or sporty, and even what colour you would like it to be. Yes, he’ll ask loads of questions to try and narrow down the massive selection so he can point you to the best car for your needs.

Like cars, there can be a massive difference in costs when it comes to developing a website. Some web designers will charge £100 while others charge £10,000, or more.

‘Surely there can’t be that much of a difference?’, I hear you ask.

Well like cars, you can buy an economic model by a Far Eastern car manufacturer for around £5000, or you can buy a Lamborghini for £500,000. Both provide the same basic functions – they take you from point A to point B. However, there is a massive difference when it comes to design, engineering, comfort and quality.

So that being said, how much should a website really cost?

I charge £25 per hour, £200 per day for my web services including freelance work.
