Hey everyone! I have come across this question a few times on forums already.
I will give you a quick overview of the answer so that you can make the best choices when it comes to creating your own website or contracting an agency for it.
There are two options:
- Using a platform to create the website yourself with the risk of not being happy about the result
- Contracting an agency to create your website and be sure that it will be a very professional website
If you are a bit techy and want to have complete control on your website, I strongly advise you to take the first option. You can use platforms like Wix.com, WordPress, Squarespace, Google Sites… You will need some time to understand how everything works and you might have some difficulties at the beginning. But this should not discourage you! You can do it! If you need any information or help, you can always ask me!
However if you have no idea about how the web works and how a website works, it will be a lot more difficult… In this case, I would consider contracting an agency to create your website. NOW.
Let’s get to the crucial question!
How much will it cost me?
This depends on what you want and on the agency you contract. There is no fixed price, each agency is free to choose a price. This is why I would ask for estimations to different agencies and then choose. You need to know that a website will generally cost between 100 and 5 000 dollars. But this can vary.
The more complex your website is, the more it will cost. The price will increase depending on if you want a blog, an e-commerce page, a pop-up, a social media integration….The more you add and the more you customize the more it costs. The price can also increase depending on whether you want a secure website, a mobile responsive website, if you want the content and the images to be created…. As you can see there are lots of factors that influence on the price.
Depending on the country, the price can also vary. For example, web agencies in India will generally cost a lot less than others as Indian prices are lower. You can also choose to ask for estimations on freelancing platforms. You will generally get the lower rates there.
