We write a custom proposal for every web development project, so there is no one-price solution, but if you are just kicking tires, here are some ballpark prices for typical sites.

Typical Prices

Most of our clients spend around $2,000 for a basic information website. This might be a WordPress site or a custom static site. This is a ballpark figure for most professional offices that might want to display a good bit of information and a contact form. An example would be Quality Sound and Communication.

Some sole proprietors have simple, distinct needs that can be accommodated for just under $1,000. If you have written all the text for your website, and it fits on one page - this may be an option for you. If it takes an hour for you to explain what you want on your site - this is probably not appropriate for you. An example of a simple site would be North America Commercial Cleaning, LLC.

Some clients have unique needs, and their rates depend on the technologies needed to meet their needs. These sites may require many hours of custom programming and database development. The data-base driven projects we complete typically run $10,000 to $20,000. Some examples of this type of site includes the Texas Chess Association and the Plan Factory.
