The cost for creating the actual website - this depends on how complicated the site is and how many different pages make up the site. This is a one-off cost- once I've created the design for you, then it is yours to keep.
This means that once your website is up and running and bringing in new customers, you will have paid all your costs for the year ahead. Some companies will charge you a very low amount up-front, then charge £30-£40 a month to "maintain" your site or lose it forever.
My approach is different, all your costs are up-front - you'll pay for the design and web hosting and that's it - there are no large montly direct debits to pay. If you decide at a later time to add on another page or two, then I will quote for these seperately.
Over a year or 2 year period it can work out substantially cheaper to pay for a thoughtfully designed bespoke website, than getting a cheap template site but then paying a large amount per month as shown below.
The cost of a "Bargain £99" website My website costs (for a 2/3 page website)
Design Cost Price Per Month Total Annual Cost Design Cost Price Per Month Total Annual Cost
£99 £30 £99 + £360 = £459 For Year 1 £400 £5 £400 + £60 = £460 For Year 1
£0 £30 £0 + £360 = £360 For Year 2 £0 £5 £0 + £60 = £60 For Year 2
£0 £30 £0 + £360 = £360 For Year 3 £0 £5 £0 + £60 = £60 For Year 3
Total Cost Over 3 Years = £1176 Total Cost Over 3 Years = £580
The "bargain £99" website actually costs approximately double over 3 years And more often than not is sold without SEO
