Startup business and small business website design frequently asked questions
Our website packages offers start-up and smaller businesses with a cost-effective professionally built website solution.
We offer a fixed amount of hours and website features for a fixed fee so you know the exact costs of your website.
One of the first questions we often get asked is “how much will a website cost me?”. Naturally, as with any investment many start up and small businesses want to know exactly what it will cost.
How much does a website cost?
Imagine asking an estate agent how much a house will cost you? They can’t give you an immediate answer. They would first ask you several key questions, including the area the house is in, is it terraced, semi or detached and how many bedrooms? Additionally, the finish of a house, quality of kitchen and bathroom and additional features such as a double garage, large garden, countryside views or even a swimming pool will all increase the cost of a house.
So, How much does a website cost?
Our website packages offer a fixed amount of website features for a fixed fee. You know exactly how much you’ll be spending and exactly what you’ll get for it. This works well for start up and small businesses that require a professionally developed website to make their new business look good, but where a specific budget is available. (It’s a bit like buying a new house from a large house builder, or an existing property that you have been and viewed – the property (website) features are all set for you, enabling a fixed price or value).
Our website packages are an interface design and website build service. This means that we design the look of the website based on your existing business brand and around the website pages and content that you specify.
