Quite often we find ourselves “over budget.” From building a house, to making a movie, funding municipalities, to company projects, including designing a website. Whether a brand new site or a re-design, there are key factors and “ingredients” that go into every web site. The more complex, content, and functions a site requires, like a great dish at a restaurant, the more ingredients, time and expensive it will be. With this analogy of a restaurant / food, click here for a great article that explains all the requirements and conditions you will need when planning and budgeting for a new or overhauled web site.
As web designers & developers, we will estimate a price based on our clients requests and review to make sure they understand the final proposal. I recommend anyone thinking about a website design or re-design take a look at this article on web development as it does a wonderful job of not only examining all that goes into designing a website, but also why. Today there are plenty of DIY (Do-it-yourself ) website platforms out there, some of them do work well for certain jobs. But, please research carefully as you don’t want to sacrifice speed and cost with long-term flexibility, growth, and customization because your ROI drastically drops if you are paying monthly for something you don’t like or negatively effects your business (whereas we can remain on board for a small flee or just update as needed. Your choice!) Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
