How much does a website cost

Let’s demystify this website-costing conundrum! It’s true that the design of a website can sometimes give away its price tag, but not always.

Think of it like picking out an outfit – you can tell a designer dress from one that’s off-the-rack. But when it comes to websites, the cost disparity can be even more stark – you could have a custom-crafted site that costs around 15-30K, or you could go with a template for just 30-60 Euros!

That’s quite the difference – so how can you tell what a website cost? Let’s break it down.

The differences in price? They can be huge! Let’s take cars for example:

A Volkswagen and an Audi both look incredibly similar – just a few colour swatches, logos and minor tweaks. But the Audi is way more expensive than the VW! That’s because they both belong to the same group and have a lot of the same parts, chassis, and software.

It’s much the same with websites. Sure, the design is important, but it’s not the only factor that affects cost. You won’t see all of the behind-the-scenes work like user experience, custom features and more – but that’s what takes up a lot of the budget! So if you’re looking for something extra special, be prepared to pay a bit more.

Template vs bespoke WordPress

“What does a website cost?” That’s the wrong question to ask!

It’s like asking ‘how much does a car cost?’ – it depends! Do you need it to make long trips everyday, or just for the occasional grocery run? It’s the same with websites.

  • Are you a professional who needs their site to bring in new customers? Then you may want to invest a bit more money into having a good website made.
  • Alternatively, if you’re just looking for an online business card like most freelancers or start-ups, then a Theme based website might be the way to go.

We’ve got two articles that compare Theme based and bespoke websites within WordPress or Shopify CMSs, so if you’d like to read more about that, take a look! But for now, let’s get back to the cost question.

What does a website cost: the different options

  • A Theme Based Website – your online business card. Simple and straight-forward, no optimization for sales – this could range from € 500 – € 1.500.
  • A Theme Based Website with Customizations – think of this as an upgraded version of the first option, some sweet small improvements to really convince and convert your visitors. The cost for this one ranges from € 1.500 – € 3.000.
  • A Bespoke Website – a website tailored to your needs, with adjustments so that your brand and feel comes across perfectly AND is optimised for conversion and sales. This one goes up to € 8.000.
  • A Bespoke Website with a Unique Design – all the bells and whistles – this one includes custom features, integrations of third parties, optimised structure and SEO goodness, plus conversion and sales pages. And it doesn’t come cheap – you’re looking at € 10.000 and beyond!

So there you have it – the lowdown on website costs!

If you don’t want to take a wrong turn, and have the budget, the best way to go is hiring an experienced web agency (like us). With a custom-made site, you can rest assured that the ‘under the hood’ structure is excellent.

However, be careful when picking a web designer or agency. On the one hand, you have those who throw things together quickly according to your specs, and call it a day. They’ll make your basic WordPress site for anywhere from € 100 to € 1,000. On the other hand, you have those who take your branding, purpose, and website marketing into account. This is the group you want to go with for a truly professional website. So make sure you pick the right one!

Good luck! 😉

If you’re looking to make some serious dough, a cheap website just ain’t gonna cut it.

So if you want your wallet to be a little heavier, you’ll want to make sure your website packs a punch. Ask yourself these questions when deciding whether or not to go pro:

  • Do you want to make a full-time income from your business?
  • Will your website be a major contributor to that goal?
  • Are customers visiting your website before they make a purchase or an appointment?
  • Is the website your main source of leads and sales?
  • Do you want to rake in more than the average income?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, then it’s time for a professional website that is tailored to your needs. Don’t settle for anything less, because if you want to make the big bucks, you’ll have to stand out from the crowd. Your website is the face of your business, so don’t skimp on quality! Invest in a bespoke design and set yourself up for success. That’s the way to make money!

Template vs bespoke Shopify

Are you looking to create a stunning website?

Wondering who can help make it happen? Well, not all designers are created equal! Here are the differences between a good designer and a bad one.

A good designer will talk to you about usability, user experience, conversion rates, and the speed of your website. They won’t throw out a standard price – because just like the cost of any car, you can’t say how much a website will cost until you know what the wishes are.

On the other hand, a bad designer will still advertise with responsive web design, as if it were a luxury. This is definitely not the case – it’s actually a precondition! They might also mention certain catchphrases such as ‘search engine friendly’ or SEO, when in reality any WordPress theme is search engine friendly. If you really want to get started with SEO, you need a strategy that takes dozens of hours and a few thousand Euros – it’s not something you can just ‘get’ when you have a website built.

So, if you want to create a stunning website, make sure to find a good designer who actually knows what they’re doing!
