How Much Does it Cost to Get a Website Made?

Websites cost between $0 and $25,000+.

That means you can get a huge variety of quotes for a single project. This wide range is based on:

  1. The size of the website
  2. The functions of the website
  3. The experience of the company you hire and the value they bring

So what’s the difference between a cheap website and a high end site?

This article will explore what you can expect to get at each price point, so you can choose the best option for your business.

The Cheapest Way to Build a Website

You’ll always be able to find free or cheap website building tools (Godaddy, Wix, WordPress) that you can use to build your own website. 

If you’re very new in business and have lots of time on your hands, but a very small budget, this can be a good way to get something online temporarily. You can always upgrade once your business starts to make some money.

If you have no money to invest but do have lots of time to spare and are tech savvy, that’s a win-win situation.

You’ll always be able to find newbies starting out who will do your website for cheap or free to use in their portfolio.

If you’re okay with being their experiment then that’s a win-win situation.

Cheap Website Development

You’ll always be able to find freelancers who are building websites on the side who will do your website for under $1000.

If you’re okay with them working on your project after they’re done their day job and potentially having limited hours where they can communicate with you and/or work on your project, then that’s a win-win.

You’ll always be able to find agencies that will build your website for a few thousand dollars. They may outsource much of their work to freelancers (almost always foreign, but can rarely be domestic freelancers).

If you’re okay with that, then it’s a win-win.

Professional Website Development

A stunning, professionally developed website will cost between $4,000–$10,000. 

Companies that specialize in website development rely on in-house work instead of outsourcing.

This means you’re getting a much higher caliber of service and actual technical skill. While you will be paying more, you’re paying for more time invested into the conversion theory and development side of your website.

If you want your website to make you more money than cheap or free ones ever will, this is the option for you.

If you’d like your website to be a sales machine without breaking the bank, this is a win-win situation.

Top Tier Websites With Business Process Automation

You will always be able to find companies that specialize in combining automation with website development.

If you have $15,000–$25,000 to invest in a high caliber website, you’ll get all of the bells and whistles that come with it.

Spending more means you can take advantage of A/B testing, SEO, copywriting, photography or stock image sourcing, and many more features.

Still not convinced?

A professional, high end website will not only earn you money, it will also save you time. There is often the opportunity to implement automation that will capture key information from visitors so you can easily follow up with them to close the sale.

While these types of websites cost more, the return on investment (ROI) will increase greatly.

If you want a website that will make you money and free up your time so you can focus on what’s really important, this is a win-win situation.
