As a leading provider of web design in Kalamazoo, potential clients come to us with a lot of questions. Do you build ecommerce sites? Can you integrate with my point-of-sale system? What content management system do you use? And, of course, the most common: how much does it cost to build a website? While there’s no easy answer to this question, we always assure business owners – small and large – that we can find a solution that fits within their budget. You see, we understand that website’s aren’t optional. We know that, without a website, your business could struggle to land new accounts and gain new customers. So, we’ve built our pricing structure around one core tenet: create high-quality websites that are affordable to everyone.
In the past, we’ve built websites for niche retailers, multi-million dollar companies, public airports, restaurant startups, and much, much more. Every client presents unique challenges that need to be addressed. A retailer, for example, may need to have ecommerce features. An airport could require integration with a ticketing system. Restaurants might want to link to an online ordering system. And, yet, no matter their needs, most clients tend to start with the same basic question: what will it cost me to build a website?
No money down
One of the biggest obstacles for small businesses is that many web design agencies require huge down payments to begin a project. In our experience, we’ve found that this puts quality websites out of reach for many companies. When we identified this problem, we created a pricing structure that allows us to create custom website designs that are affordable to businesses of all sizes. The first thing we eliminated? Down payments. You can start a project with us today for no money down. More importantly, we’ll work with you to arrive at a single, low monthly payment that fits within your company’s budget.
Average website down payments
- 5 to 10 page site: $1,500
- 10 to 20 page site: $2,800
- Small ecommerce site: $2,300
- Large ecommerce site: $6,000
Simplified, transparent costs
After you build a website, there can be a number of ongoing costs involved. On top of the costs for standard things, you may opt in to additional services, like SEO to get your site found on search engines, ecommerce software to sell your products online, or reputation management to clean up your company’s online reviews. We factor all of your ongoing costs into a single, low monthly payment. All of the common services listed below – along with several others – are included. We tailor our web design packages to the individual needs of every client, aiming to deliver only the services they need at a price that they can afford.
Common monthly costs after building a website
- Domain name: $10
- Website hosting: $40
- SSL certificate: $60
- Local listings: $50
No-hassle website builds
Putting the monetary cost aside, business owners should factor the cost of their time into their web design. With websites needing regular attention, it can be a part-time – or even full-time – job ensuring that your site is up to date, secure, and effective. An outdated website can bleed customers, which is why most sources recommend a website redesign every two to three years. But, who has time for that? Well… we do! Every three years, we’ll build you a new website for no additional cost. And, since our team will already be familiar with your company, you can be minimally – or, of course, maximally – involved in these regular redesign projects.
Typical website redesign timeframes
- 5 to 10 page site: 45 to 90 days
- 10 to 20 page site: 60 to 120 days
- Small ecommerce site: 60 to 120 days
- Large ecommerce site: 90 to 240 days
