How much does a website
cost to design and build from scratch?
Asking ‘how much does a website cost?’ is a bit like asking how much a car costs. The cost of a website is a combination of what you can afford and your requirements. Your budget should depend on the value of the new business your site is likely to generate.
There aren’t many industries where the price varies so much for seemingly similar products. You may be wondering why you should go to a design agency when you can buy a cheap web site template online, or have a mate will give you a low cost website for £200-£300. Anybody can design a website these days, but does your mate have any branding, online marketing or design expertise? How well do they know your industry? If your web site looks unprofessional it can damage your business reputation.
Compare this to agencies that take time to start with a blank canvas and design the site to fit the clients content rather than try to squeeze the content into an existing recycled design and it’s easy to understand how this can effect the cost of setting up and running a website.
