What Does a Professional Website Cost Anyway? Part 2

Last post, we explored how in today’s times, investing in a well-designed and maintained website can make all the difference for your organization’s success.  

Remember my story on getting a quote to build a pool? At first I had sticker shock. But once I was properly informed on what all goes into a quality pool, I realized the investment was a very good one. 

7 years later, I am still thankful I chose a quality contractor. I’ve seen friends spend a lot of extra time and money fixing poorly built pools and miss out on actually enjoying their pools. Meanwhile I have watched my kids and friends swim joyfully in my own backyard. It makes my heart full (especially in this crazy Texas heat!)

Now, I get to share with you what all goes into creating a quality website, so you too can make an informed choice and not miss out on donations or revenue.

The cost of a website can vary significantly based on several factors, including the complexity of the site, its features, and the location and expertise of the web development team. Choose the investment that will help you get the return on investment that you’re looking for. Here are some general ranges for custom website costs, including the copy, wireframe and responsive design:

Landing Page Only: A homepage with minimum design and copy can range from $3,000 - $5,000.

Basic Website: A simple website with up to 5 pages, basic design, and minimal functionality can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000.

Small Business Website: A small business website with more features like a content management system (CMS), interactive contact forms, and some customization can range from $5,000 to $20,000.

E-commerce Website: Building an e-commerce website with features like product listings, shopping cart, payment processing, and a user-friendly interface can range from $7,500 to $50,000 or more, depending on the size and complexity.

Advanced Website: A more complex and custom website with unique design, advanced functionality, and integration with third-party services can cost anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 or more.

Keep in mind that these are rough estimates, and actual costs can vary based on your specific requirements and the web development provider you choose. It's important to get detailed quotes from multiple web development companies or freelancers to get a better idea of the cost for your specific project. Also, be sure to consider long-term costs, such as maintenance (including security), SEO and marketing, when planning your website budget.
