We often get asked “how much does it cost to build a website”. It’s always a difficult question to answer straight off because well… how long is a piece of string?
Price ranges can be very helpful as a rule of thumb, but many people starting out in business don’t have capital that they can put up front to develop a fully functioning website with all bells and whistles – they just want something to start putting their name out there.
That’s why we’ve just launched a package tailored for small businesses just starting out. For a custom web design package it’s a remarkably low cost solution, helped in part by a care package that spreads the cost out over time.
For £650 upfront and £25/month thereafter we’re offering:
1. A bespoke 3 page mobile optimised website
You can provide content and we’ll design it and build it. After going live you can update the website yourself with our drag and drop pagebuilder.
2. Supported web hosting
We’ll host your website and keep it optimised for speed and security. This includes unlimited bandwidth, unlimited storage space and regular whole website backups for your peace of mind.
This is similar to our more extensive supported WordPress web hosting plans.
3. Free web domain
Free non-premium web domain name for one year, and a free SSL security certificate.
4. Google Maps business location optimisation
Optimisation of your Google maps business location listing. This is by far the quickest and cheapest way to get right to the top of local Google search results.
5. Advanced website analytics
Learn about your site visitors – what they’re into, where they’re coming from and which pages they’re interested in.
6. Unlimited website contributors
Get a few extra helping hands on board for no extra cost.
The biggest benefit
The major benefit of going this route is that it hits the sweet spot between restrictive but cheap DIY website builders on the one hand and fully functional but potentially expensive custom web development on the other hand.
Unlike the raft of DIY website builders out there if you cancel your monthly subscription with us at a later date you can take all your website files and databases with you to a new web host at no extra cost. It’s all yours, forever.
Also, as your website becomes more established there are practically no limits to how much you can grow your website. You won’t have the same limits on functionality, storage capacity, bandwidth, number of databases etc that other solutions have.
The sky (or the cloud, I guess) is the limit.
