Web Design Prices Sydney

March 6 2013

At Hopping Mad Designs, we consider your needs and your budget. We design and develop websites for both large and small companies in Sydney. No matter what your budget, Hopping Mad Designs can provide a web design solution at a price point solution that will work well for your business. Regardless of the budget, your site will be a customised design solution, delivered with the highest standard of design and customer service.

If you have never had a website designed or developed before then the following information should be very useful and give you a good idea about website prices.

An overview of website costings:

The first step is talking with a web agency like us at Hopping Mad Designs to formulate a brief or an idea of the type of website you want, and then we can tailor a web design package to suit. Website pricing can be divided in to 3 main categories:

1. Website Prices For Business Start Ups

Suitable for start up or small businesses needing to have a presence online. These are usually a 4-5 page website, with key information about the company or service to get your business message across. The design is customised to fit with your corporate branding, to deliver a unique and relevant site.

The navigation and interface ( UX ) of these websites are quite simple, but can all be added to or developed further in the future as the business expands and grows. All of these sites are built around a WordPress content management system, which allows for ease of updates. They sites are all mobile friendly and are SEO ready. This is a great solution for small businesses that want a website up and running quickly. Obviously, there are free websites out there and templates online but these do not work and offer a ‘cookie cutter’ approach so your site well end up looking like every other site out there – not a good idea!

Web design prices for sites like this are generally between the $2,000–$4,000 price range.

2. Website Prices For Larger Established Companies

This is suitable for businesses looking for a more involved web design solution, combined with back end functionality, such as databases, e-commerce solutions, membership areas, photo galleries, responsive (mobile friendly web design), and search functions integrated with a WordPress content management system.

Websites like these are usually for larger, more established businesses needing to make more of an impact online and drive sales. Often these sites are stage two of an online presence – the company might have had a basic style website in the past and are looking to upgrade or just want to move forward with a few more “bells n’ whistles”.

Websites like these usually require a higher level of design time and the interface is generally more complex. There will be a heavy emphasis on SEO, which is implemented throughout the design and development phases. These sites can have various structures and layouts depending on the requirements of the owner. But one thing that is a common thread among these type of sites is that they are all designed to either sell a product or service and generate vast site wide traffic and visitors.

Web design prices for these sites will fall anywhere between $5,000–$15,000. It is important to note that these sites are all built around a content management system or CMS, which means that site owners can make product, service or prices changes through out the site at their discretion. This is an extremely powerful marketing tool which is what the site was intended for.

3. Complex Website Solutions

These websites are usually reserved for those businesses, companies or government bodies that not only require a highly complex interface but need a lot more in terms of design and web site architecture. They require a team of web designers to work on the design and top programmers to bring it all together. They will also have web copy writers and site architecture specialists to coordinate the page links.

Prices for sites like this generally start at around the $20,000 level.
