Website Design Costs
Designing a website in Queenstown or anywhere else for that matter can be an expensive exercise, however it doesn’t need to be. The truth is that the initial website design cost should be appropriate and affordable for your business and you should focus on getting a realistic return on your investment. We can help you to control your upfront costs and to keep your web design costs to a minimum.
Most small business owners understand that they need to optimise their new website, however ‘most’ people underestimate how much they’re going to need to spend on SEO to get anything like the results they want.
Regardless of how much money you spend on designing your website, it needs optimising. If you don’t optimise your website you will not generate relevant organic visitors to your site. The design element is important, however the most important factor in putting your business online is exposing your website, products and services to an increased audience of potential buyers. Unfortunately the graphical design component of your site has very little to do with its performance in search engines.
Astute business owners invest more money in SEO than in the design of their websites.
If you want a basic website with the ability to edit your pages and content from time to time we recommend using a theme template within WordPress or Drupal platform. Themes can be edited and manipulated to suit your business and they’re fantastic from an SEO perspective. The cost can be as little as several hundred dollars, however the graphical element of your site may be limited if you’re not ready to invest in higher levels of graphic design. You can of course pay more, however before you increase your budget we recommended that you really understand what you want to achieve in the short, medium and long-term before committing financially.
How Much Will I Pay for an e-Commerce Website Design?
If you want to sell products online and take payment by debit and credit card you can expect to pay literally thousands of dollars for a basic e-commerce website design, the site should also be SEO friendly. If you want additional features such as newsletter sign-up, special offers and voucher features etc you can expect to pay more than $10,000 and in some cases a lot more. The more graphic design and development required, the higher the cost.
Let’s consider for a moment that in the United States of America an established website ‘re-design’ costs on average USD$17,000 – USD$80,000 and will take three to six months to complete the project. This information was provided by Hubspot. A full site redesign can be far more complex and costly than designing a website from scratch as there are numerous other elements to consider such as site auditing and url redirects etc.
You’re no doubt already getting the point.. you need to get it right the first time or it may turn out very expensive for a website redesign!
What’s Important When I Design My Website?
In our experience the most important points to remember when you are designing your website are:
build it using a future-proof, SEO friendly and scalable platform such as WordPress or Drupal
great quality copy and content
Once your website design is complete and before you publish the site we recommend optimising your site to rank in search engines. There are two aspects to consider when optimising for search:

What Else Should I Consider?
Building your website is easy, getting the site to perform in search engines and deliver potential buyers (visitors) and results takes patience, knowledge and a lot of effort – there is no cutting corners. You need to invest financially and commit long-term if you want to succeed. Consider the design cost of your website and consider that you can expect to spend the same again or more in your first year to begin establishing and marketing your site to your audience.
