How much does a website cost?

The biggest factor in cost is the overall functionality and custom features that must be designed and developed. We’ll try to identify much of this in our initial conversations to provide you the best estimate possible. Please review our process and sample timeline to see what’s included in our projects.

Our proposal will contain price ranges for design and development (the more unknown, the wider the range). After discovery, we will have a clear understanding of all the features and the level of effort required, and will provide a fixed cost for design and development. The number of pages isn’t directly related to the cost (we don’t have a “per page” rate), but mocking up and building more pages does increase the work.

Typical Project Pricing

A typical project may contain 12-18 different pages: Home, 3-5 examples of Standard Inner (ex: About, Contact….), 2-4 Unique Pages (ex: Pricing), 2-4 Module-based pages, Blog Archive, Category Archive, Single Post, and Search Results.

  • Discovery, $1,500
  • Technical Site Audit (for existing websites), $1,500
  • Design, $6,000 – $10,000
  • Development, $10,000 – $20,000

Example websites: Pritzker Law, SolutionsIQ, Ukulele Underground, MasterVoices

Smaller Websites

Simpler websites are a great option for many businesses. The value proposition can be higher because you get much of the value at less than half the cost.

A project of this size may contain 3-5 pages: Home, 1-3 Standard Inner pages, and Search Results

  • Discovery, $1,500
  • Design, $4,000 – $5,000
  • Development, $5,000 – $7,000

Example websites: Humorist in Residence, The Kerouac Project, Buyers Law
