How Much Does It Cost To Design a Site?

If you’re looking for a professionally built website, you should expect a professional website designer to charge anywhere between $1,000 to $5,000 dollars. Hourly rates can vary between $50-$200 an hour. If you search around the internet, you can find web designers for $100. However, choosing this type of designer for your project is not going to give your website the value it deserves. You end up investing in a low-quality design that is a huge disservice for your business.

Less expensive web designers may seem like a great deal, but you won’t receive the type of results you’re aiming for. Why exactly is that? If you have an okay looking website, but no one can find your products, services, or business information, you’re not going to get the results you’re looking for. Your website is not functioning as an asset at this point, it’s functioning as an expense.
By the time you’ve realized your mistake, and that your website is not bringing in the traffic you were promised, you’ll have to find a web designer that is able to fix your website. This will end up costing you a lot more money than if you had hired a professional web designer in the first place.

Why Do Web Designers Charge That Amount?

While every designer is different in their pricing scale, the price you pay is for the time, knowledge, and expertise of the website designer. Before giving you a firm price, the web designer will first conduct a consultation to really understand what your needs are and map out a plan on how they’re going to accomplish those goals. This allows you to have a completely unique, customized website that helps your customers find you.

If you spend $2,000 on a website and you end up gaining a lot of traction to your website with increases in your sales and your companies profit, you won’t even remember the money you spend on your website. That’s because your website is functioning like the asset and business tool it was meant to be.
