What are the cost elements of a good website? The cost of a website varies, depending on it’s complexity. If you require a totally custom made website, with ecommerce and a huge product line, you will spend a great deal of time and money designing it. These types of websites are not only complicated to create, they are complicated to update and maintain. In addition, these types of websites can cost tens of thousands of dollars to make.
If your business is instead information oriented, such as a bakery, lawyer, electrician or accounting service, then your needs are much different. These types of websites don’t usually require ecommerce. This means they don't require an extensive number of pages.
How low can costs be?
Due to the rising digital age, the face of marketing your business has changed. In Vancouver marketing requires a great web presence. For smaller businesses a two to four page website does the job. The following costs are typical for a smaller website that has text, graphics and photographs:
- Two page - $750 to $1,250
- Three to four page - $1,000 to $1,500
Some businesses require video on their sites. Video is more complicated to include. Therefore, these websites cost more to make:
• Two page with one video - $1,250 to $1,500
• Three to four page with one video - $1,500 to $1,750
Other businesses require a portfolio of videos on their site, so these costs are more extensive, as follows:
• Three to four page with multiple videos - $2,000 to $3,000
