What factors affect web design costs?

When it comes to web design costs, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. The cost of web design varies depending on a variety of factors such as the size of the website, functionality, complexity, and more. Understanding what’s involved with your web package determines the overall price of your project. See below a few bullet points:

  • Complexity of design and functionality required
  • Number of pages and amount of content
  • Integration of e-commerce and payment processing systems
  • Customization requirements
  • Amount of Graphic Design work needed
  • Responsive design for mobile devices
  • Search engine optimization (SEO) considerations

Are there any hidden costs associated with websites?

Well it really depends on the web company you use and their contract. The best thing to do is ask up front before agreeing to anything. Some agencies can be transparent while some can be sneaky. You also want to make sure you have full control and ownership of your new website.

For example, with my business Red Eye Design, there is no hidden costs. The only ongoing cost is hosting. Hosting is a normal cost with any website. If you plan to add new pages or features to your website in the future, you may need a budget for these types of jobs.
