How Much Does A Website Cost?

In today’s digital economy, having a website is essential for any business looking to thrive in the online marketplace. But when it comes to investing in a website, there’s one question I get asked more than any other: How much does a website cost, and what level of quality and service can I expect in return?

With website pricing, there are generally three tiers to consider, each with their unique pros and cons. I’ve outlined a bit of information, including pricing ballparks for each tier.

DIY Platforms

These platforms, such as Wix and Squarespace, offer a budget-friendly option for those looking to create a website on their own. While these platforms provide templates and tools for building a basic site, the biggest issue lies within the title itself: DIY. With this option, you are the one stuck with the design, buildout, ongoing maintenance, troubleshooting, and updates of the website, taking precious time away from you doing what you’re an expert at that moves your business forward.

Expensive Agencies

On the other end of the spectrum are high-priced agencies, which offer premium services but come with a hefty price tag. These agencies typically have large overhead costs, including big offices and large staff, which are factored into their pricing. While you can expect a top-notch product from these agencies, the cost may not always align with the value delivered, especially for small to medium-sized businesses. In my experience, agencies tend to be in the $10,000 – $40,000 price range for the design and development of a website, plus monthly retainers anywhere from $100-$1000 or more.

Virtue’s Approach

At Virtue, we pride ourselves on offering a middle-ground solution that combines the best of both worlds. The goal is to not just hand you a website that looks stunning (which it will), but rather a powerful tool that can drive your business forward, exponentially out-earning the money you paid for your website.

As a one-person shop, I work closely with a network of specialists only as needed, allowing me to keep overhead costs low while still delivering high-quality results. Our pricing is transparent and straightforward. Website projects typically range from $4,000 to $8,000 depending on scope and complexity, plus an affordable website care plan. I am always happy to connect with another designer if this project fee is not a good fit.

We handle all aspects of your website, from design to ongoing updates and maintenance, so you can focus on what you do best – running your business. Our website care plans ensure that your site remains secure, up-to-date, and performing at its best, giving you peace of mind knowing that your online presence is in good hands.
