how much is a website

How much is a web site?

‘How much does a website cost ?’ is often the first question we get asked on an initial enquiry. It’s a fair question as we all have budgets to adhere to, but obviously its a similar question to ‘how much is a car?’ the answer being that it depends if you want a Fiat 500 or a Ferrari!

We believe it’s more important to consider what the return on your investment will be. So, if an ecommerce website will allow you to generate £1 million worth of sales in 12 months, then £50,000 or 5% is a very reasonable sum. Conversely if you are a charity and every penny earned is hard fought for then £500 would seem a lot. But as a guide we’ve created this graph to indicate what you would expect to get, typically for £X amount invested. We are always here to discuss your project and to come up with solutions that meet both your needs and your budget.
