When you decide your business is ready for a website the first step you take, being the diligent business owner that you are, is to research how much it is going to cost. Unfortunately, you will find a range of pricing instead of a standard amount but these ranges can be substantial. Here are some things to consider when it comes to pricing.
It is best to approach the cost of a website like you would consider buying other services, rather than thinking of it like buying a product. You aren't buying a website but instead, hiring someone to design a site that meets your unique needs. Thinking of it as a service rather than a product will help you compare designers, much like you would a hairdresser or chiropractor.
The hairdresser analogy is a good one because you can get a haircut for $8 or you can pay upwards of $100, depending on the salon. Similarly, with website design, your site could be as little as $500 or as much as $100,000, depending on the complexity. Below are some links to articles that will help you get a bigger picture of the industry and what pricing includes.
