How Much Do You Charge for Website Design?

How much do you charge per page ?

This is for anyone who is into commercial web design. I just want to compare prices and find out how much you guys charge your clients. Is it per page? If yes, how much per page? Or do you have a fixed pricing system?

That's true. We should focus more on standard and you will see that people will rate you higher than 15k.

When i started many peeps wanted to exploit me. If i bill them 40k them go shout, You are not yet a business man na.

But now if i shout 60k, them go pay one hand, Cause they believe in the standard of both my design and the availability and up time i strive to make sure their site posses.

The easiest way to run into trouble in business is to focus on price wars instead of delivering quality services.

Even though clients would want the cheapest solutions just remember that most times the quality of projects suffer and before you know it the same client that was looking for the lowest cost would not mind paying a lot more as long as he/she is assured of quality.

You don't have control over what others will charge (whether higher or lower) but you have control over the quality of projects you deliver. Focus on this and you will not be making a mistake.

Website varies in functionalty, thus their prices.

I have worked on customization of osDate it is good for dating. The price depend on the level of changes you want (say $400 - $900).

For development from the scratch: $1500 - $5000 (depending on the features you want)

@Knzguru I am interested

How Much Should Web Site Design, Development, and Hosting Cost?

-----------------

Once upon a time there was a steam generating plant that was not producing much steam. After a frustrating search for the cause, the plant manager, in desperation, called in an expert. After only two hours on site, the expert found the problem and placed “X’s” on two pipes that were causing the problem, saying that they had to be removed.

When presented with the bill, the plant manager asked the consultant how he could charge $5,000.00 for only two hours of work. When he asked for an itemized bill, this is what he got:

1. $400.00 - Placing “X’s” on two pipes

2. $4,600.00 - Knowing where to place the “X’s”

The plant manager got what he paid for and probably a lot more. He had already used up more than that amount on his own staff not to mention the loss in revenue while the plant was shut down. For him, securing the advisory services of a consultant was the right thing to do.

Very much possible, i do that so many times. The actual sites i developed from the scratch is not up to 5 yet.

I collabo most of the time when the pay is good, and outsource plenty to those i have proven to be good

and not so expensive too. And do the cleanups later to make sure if satisfy my minimal standards before

releasing it to the client.

It depends on the design functionality you want to add in your website.

You will find packaged based services here and there. Often you cant decide which is better for you.

I have tried some free services which provide you the customized Price and Rates according to your website development.

I got best result and saved my expense.

It requires more expertise and confidence to tune a template to your taste. In my experience as a web designer, it is easier to build a website from scratch that to fine tune a template ore re-design a website (depending on the complexity of the template).

Back to the original topic on how much to charge for web design. Your rates should depend on how much work is required to be done, how much you value your time and expertise and how valuable the project is to your client.

This is the information age and ignorance is very expensive. What might seem easy for you to do may be a Herculean task for another. Don't underestimate you knowledge and how much you should charge for it, it's business and the law of demand and supply holds.

For charities, I personally offer a discount

Hmmm,

how much do I charge? It depends. I would have to sit down with the client with my little spreadsheet that calculates as they add features.

All in all, prices differ on the following basis:

1) Template or fresh page

2) Graphics

3) Special features: Search, Keywords

4) Static or dynamic

That is just a few in a nutshell.

It looks like a template when u start to judge by the way the pages are arranged.. looking also at the .php3 Service_e-commerce those format are somehow.

Though Its cool but blur...

As to web design pricing.. I will say it doesnt have a fix price determined by clients and requirement.

joffy, r u sure they are templates !! can u prove that... cos though the look a litttle bit off contrast but i guess thats due to the fact that they used fireworks.. i still think its cool anyway (who ever takes the glory is okay by me, them or the template designers.. the site is attractive)

Those sites(http://www.exiommedia.com/ & http://www.exiommedia.com/) are pure templates. I don't really consider using templates web-desgn.

the main thing is that people just build sites they don't know why, and most of them don't update their sites. by the time people are ready to pay people who should put their sites where it should be to make money it would always be like

A website that is not task focused will not become a success.

Google is a typical example of a task focused website and you will all agree that google can afford to pay the most expensive web designers if they wanted to.

But they are not interested in people congratulating them for a fine website, rather they are more interested in making it easy for clients and users to accomplish their tasks in the shortest possible time as possible.

I see some beautiful websites in Nigeria but not a lot of successful websites and that's a serious issue.

There is no specific cost for a web site design. A site can be designed for as little as N60,000 to as high as N10,000000+

It just depends on

1. Who the client is

2. What the job requires

3. Time frame before completion
