HOW MUCH SHOULD A WEBSITE COST IN 2022?

Practically every enquiry we receive asks us, “How much should a website cost in 2022?”

To give you an approximate cost, we need to understand more about your business, its goals and what you need it to do for you.

TYPES OF WEBSITES

Brochure Style Website

This type of website exists simply for existing customers to get information about your business.

Marketing Website

A marketing website is designed to promote your services and products, attract leads, and gain new customers.

Custom Built Website

A more complex website that integrates with other service platforms and is set up to sell products manage and
 capture large amounts of data.

eCommerce Website

An online store that promotes and sells products or services.

Website design and development is a service, and just like any service-based industry, the cost depends on the amount of work needed to achieve the results a client wants. Simply, the more work, the higher the price.

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN.

From experience, we know that websites commonly fall into the following categories. However, these ‘broad’ categories break down further as we must understand the functionality and design elements required per project.

ARE CHEAP AND CHEERFUL (BARGAIN) WEBSITES WORTH IT?

If you are only interested in the lowest price available, you will always find someone who is cheaper. Remember, though, a cheap website is cheap for a reason. The price quoted on a website directly reflects how much time, effort, and resources will be put into its design and development.

Ask yourself, “How do I want my business represented to the world?” The cheaper the website, the chances are that it will be less effective in generating the results every business wants, attracting, engaging, and converting visitors to paying customers. But, in the end, a cheap website will make your business look exactly that, cheap.

A well-designed, well-constructed website will get the job done for you by attracting and converting visitors to clients, which is the goal of any website.

At Vanswag Digital, our priority is to provide you with a high-quality, conversion-focused website that delivers a return on your investment.
