Website Development

What does a website cost?

We build websites for $500 – $32,000.   What’s the difference?   Your needs – Our time & effort.

In all cases, your project will be custom-quoted to reflect your exact needs.

All sites are built on WordPress, and include editor-level access to edit and update content throughout the site. The level of customization is limited only by your imagination (and your budget).

These “packages” are meant to give you an idea of what a website might cost with a given set of features. The names come from what we see are the stages of maturity of any business’s website:

  • First, you just need to just “Get Online“.
  • Then you’re looking for the “Next Step“.  This is often the “learning phase” of your website, when your users & customers are telling you what they need, and you react to satisfy those needs.
  • Once your business and website has reached a certain level of maturity, it’s time to move beyond the bare necessities of getting online, and the adolescence of on-the-fly additions. You are ready for a “Grown Up” website – typically this means a “tear down and rebuild” approach, but often many features and much of the content are carried forward.
  • Finally, as a well-established and successful business with clearly defined needs based on iterative cycles of customer feedback and testing, it is time to build an “Industry Leading” website.  This website takes aim at the highest competition amongst your peers.  With feature functionality, visual design, and overall user-experience, the goal is to be so good it attracts the highest form of flattery – imitation.

There is no “magic formula” to tell how fast a business might move through these stages – nor is the journey always linear.

Ongoing Costs

Every website needs ongoing attention. Our Professionally Managed WordPress plans mirror these same stages of maturity.
