Cost of a Website in 2015 – Average Cost of a Website Design

Cost of a Website in 2015

The design of a website entails the consideration of important factors like the interface design, images and graphics, mobile, responsive designs, content creation and insertion, E-commerce shopping carts, identity development, advertising integration, SEO and metrics. These are just some of the factors that influence the cost of your website.

New sites are often more costly than existing sites than need enhancements and upgrades. This comes from the fact that the designer has to come up with a new online brand from scratch with features and functionality that suit the needs of your business. The cost of a website is determined by the number of hours used in the design and development.

Content creation is an important aspect of a website as it helps develop your brand and give guests a great perspective of your business. Owners can either create and add their own content or use the services of a professional copywriter.

Our pricing at JPG Designs starts at just $995
