How Much Does A Website Cost?

How much does a website cost? If you’ve been thinking about starting a website it’s probably one of the first questions you have.

I know it’s one of the first questions I get when I’m talking to someone who is thinking about a new website.

So, what are the factors that go into how much it’s going to cost to build your website?

There are several costs, and some are not as obvious as others.

In this guide I’m going to walk you through the things you need to consider when determining the cost of your web project.

My goal here is for you to be able to build an outline and roadmap so that you know what to expect at every step along the path to your new website.

This guide covers:

  • What the three main factors are that affect the cost of every web project
  • The different approaches to design and development and how that affects the cost
  • What the different kinds of websites are how that affects the cost
  • Content & copywriting considerations
  • Things to keep in mind regarding marketing & search engine optimization
  • Ongoing maintenance and upkeep and associated costs

I’m not going to assume that you’re going to use one type of content management system over another in this post, because all websites are different and have different needs.

Neither do I assume that you should use WordPress (although in many instances it’s probably the right choice). I’m a huge advocate for matching the right tool to the need. I’m a WordPress developer – it’s what I do all day every day. But I also know that it may not be the right fit in some situations.

You ready? Let’s jump in.
