How Much You Should Pay for a Website

August 2, 2017

When people contact me for help with a website, they have one main question.

How much is this going to cost?

It’s a logical thing to ask, really. Those of us who aren’t rich or famous have a finite amount of money, and we always want to feel like that money is being used in the smartest way possible. We are especially cautious when it comes to paying for something intangible like a website – you can’t hold it in your hand, so how much can it really be worth?

The cost of web design work varies wildly. You could ask for quotes from 10 different designers and receive 10 completely different amounts, ranging from a few thousand rupees to several lacs. How do you decide what amount you’re willing to pay?

Factors That Affect the Price of Website Design

1. The components and features you need.

Never assume that your needs are “simple” or should be cheaper than a designer’s standard rate. Some things look easy but are very complicated, while others seem like a big deal but are very easy to implement. Your site may only consist of a single page, yet that doesn’t mean it’s automatically cheaper than one with 5 or even 100 pages.

The thing is, designers don’t always price by the amount of time something takes. Your doctor can stitch a cut in 10 minutes, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t require knowledge, skill, and precision. Likewise, we have spent considerable time learning to do what we do. If anyone could do it, we wouldn’t have jobs. Adding things like blog, ecommerce, opt-ins, memberships, and other custom functionality is simply going to cost more money.

2. Your designer or developer’s skill level.

Yes, you can get a website for Rs.5,000. No, it won’t be the same quality as a website that costs Rs.50,000. It’s like the difference between a Maruti and a Mercedes. Both will get you where you need to go, but one is decidedly better than the other. Designers who charge more are providing you with expertise you won’t find at a bargain rate – and in most cases, the benefits will definitely outweigh the added costs. If you automatically choose the cheapest option, you risk hiring a designer who sucks. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

3. How demanding you are as a client.

Oops, I mentioned one of those things no one is supposed to talk about! But in the interest of being honest, I’ll just tell you: If you email or call me 50 times a day, expect a billion tiny revisions, cut into my time with my family, and/or request things outside the scope of our working relationship, it’s going to cost you. Over time, designers learn how to sniff out “difficult” clients pretty easily, but if one sneaks through the gates, we are going to make absolutely sure we are compensated for the extra work. Please remember that designers and developers are people and we (sometimes) have lives away from our computers.

So How Much Should I Pay?

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before deciding on a budget for website design.

For Business Websites:

How important is it to have a website for my business?

It’s the 21st century, and over 60% of internet users research products and services online before they make a purchase. If your company doesn’t have a website, regardless of what you do or how many employees you have, you are totally missing out. That said, having an ugly, outdated website isn’t going to help you much in the reputation department. It’s easy to tell yourself that any web presence is better than none, but you can certainly lose potential clients or customers if they perceive your brand as “cheap” or out of touch.

What does my website actually do for my business? 

Do people use your website to learn about what you offer? Make appointments? Purchase products? Find your phone number? Two important points about this: (1) If your website doesn’t lead to more business, that’s a problem. And it’s not because the web doesn’t work – it’s because your site doesn’t. (2) If your website does lead to more business, it’s time to ask yourself what could help improve conversion rates or make things easier for clients and customers.

 What does my business really need? 

I’ve talked to business owners who are obsessed with things that simply don’t matter. They absolutely must have a menu that pops out a certain way, or they want to push content lower on the page just to make the logo bigger. And while they’re worrying about all those nitpicky details, they’re missing the fact that half their visitors never click beyond the homepage. If you aren’t sure what your business site needs, it’s time to consult with someone who does. Immediately.

WHAT YOU SHOULD SPEND: 

Website designs for businesses are more difficult to price because there are so many factors involved. I would say you should always expect at least Rs.20,000+ for static website, Rs.30,000+ for customised dynamic website and Rs.1,50,000+ for customsed eCommerce website, if not much more than that. Don’t like that answer? Try thinking of your website as an employee  and I think you’ll see why you’re getting a bargain no matter what you spend.

What do you think? How much should a website design cost? What factors do you use to come up with that amount?

3 Tips for Developing a Global-Friendly Website

May 8, 2012

The best part of the internet is that is that it can be accessed from anywhere in the world. However, Many Indian website designers forget that just because the web allows individuals and businesses to reach out to the rest of the world doesn’t mean that the rest of the world is always able to understand the message presented by the individual or business. When designing and developing websites, it’s easy to forget the internet’s global scope.

We’ve compiled some tips for making your website globally friendly.

1. Reduce the Use of Text in Images: The web is becoming a more accessible place on a global level, in large part because of machine translation systems like Google Translate. These systems are getting better at making it easier for users to translate websites written in other languages. However, machine translations don’t work on graphical images.

That means that if you frequently use static images for headings, aspects of a logo or for call-out information, you can be cutting off some of your audience.

2. Allow Your Text to Grow: Most modern websites that use dynamically generated content will flow correctly when converted to another language, but certain elements may have display problems, and it is important to test your site using a machine translation service to get an idea of how elements are displayed.

3. Make Your Shopping Cart Internationally Friendly: If you sell something on your website and offer international shipping, be sure to offer a way for users to convert payment into their own currency. There are a number of different API tools for completing exchange rate and currency conversions on your site, without the need for a lot of hassle.

While designing a website it is also important to keep in mind cultural aspects of different communities around the world. Focus on expected and targeted audience while designing a website globally.

Web designing is a broad term to encompass the way to the user through World Wide Web

January 13, 2012

Web design is used as a general term to describe any of the various tasks involved in creating a web page. More specifically, it refers to jobs focused on building the front-end of a web page.

The web consists of myriad pages, presenting information using different technologies and linked together with hyperlinks. There are two basic aspects to any web page found on the Internet. The first is a presentation that the user interacts with, usually visually, while the second is a back-end that includes information for non-human browsers.
Types of web design

Though in recent times, different types of website design layouts remain available, among them, the most used web page layouts include the following:

  • Symmetrical Layout– In this type of a layout, different elements are centered or aligned to a particular side of a website. Thus the symmetry is formed out of the website. It is always advisable, if the left hand corner of the page comprises heavy design element, it should also be properly balanced with relevant design on the right hand side. However, it should always be kept in mind that the elements inserted on both the sides should not be literally same.

This balanced or formal web layout design symmetry can also be achieved when the design is centered and uniformly divided in vertical or horizontal manner.

  • Isolative Layout– In this type of a layout, symbol, logo, pictures, and product images are placed depending on the space usage and visibility factor.
  • Radiative Layout– In this type of a layout, logo, symbol, and image are highlighted by using flash and attractive light. Pop-up buttons can also be inserted for grabbing the visitors’ attention.
  • Dominative Layout– In this type of a website layout, symbols, logos and product images are incorporated in enlarged size. This is because, these symbols are considered to be the main factors in the site.
  • Asymmetrical Layout– In this type of a layout, the site elements are placed in an uneven manner. This is also known as dynamic layout that can create tension through its unbalanced movement.
  • Repetition Layout– In this layout, a particular element is repeated more than once. This is done in order to give emphasis on that specific element.
