Honest, transparent website pricing

I prefer to work on an agreed fixed fee. If needed we can negotiate an hourly rate. The price I charge is defined by the time the project will take and the value I bring to it.

How much does a website cost and why?

Website pricing is really inconsistent: you can give the same brief to 3 different website developers / agencies and get prices ranging from a few hundred to tens of thousands. That is because those 3 providers all use different techniques to build the website, they will also be making a number of assumptions or oversights.

Use the analogy of a house. Just as houses can range from modest to luxury, websites also range from simple to highly complex.

When you get a website built by me I will be helping you with search engine optimisation, branding, emails, web content as well as designing and developing the website itself.

How much does a 5 page website cost?

This question is such a classic. Let's clear this up: a website's price doesn't depend on number of pages.

Number of pages is a terrible way to quantify the size or quality of a website. Some one-page websites are extremely complicated and scroll and scroll width calculators, forms, complex animations. Some 100 page websites are made using the exact same template just swapping text and images in.

As a result you can use my "Business Site" guide price as a much better indication.

How much is your website worth to you?

If you didn't have a website how much would it cost you in real terms? A website built by me can generate 100s of enquiries a year. If that was the case, how much would the website be worth to you?
