How Much Does it Cost to Design a Site?

As a web design Manchester agency, this is one of the most common questions prospective clients ask. But the answer is not as easy as it sounds.

Say, you are looking to buy a car. What’s the first question that pops in your mind? Will you ask “how much does it cost to buy a car?”, or will you ask “what car would fit my budget?”

 

The cost of a website works in pretty much the same way! Don’t simply ask, “how much does it cost to design a website?” Instead, look for a web design Manchester agency that can deliver what you’re looking for within your budget.

The cost of your website depends on what you want it to do for you. Sure, web design quotes may vary from designer to designer, but even the quote depends on the features you are looking for.

But, at the end of the day, the price makes a huge difference, so you can make a decision. That’s why our web design Manchester team has decided to help you without beating around the bush to give a clear answer to your question, “how much does it cost to design a site?”

So instead of giving you ballpark figures that will only confuse you further, we decided to show you how much it costs to have Blue Whale Media design your website and the features you get in each package. Compare them with any other web design Manchester agency’s quote, and you will find ours to be hands down value for money and truly affordable.

Please note that all prices mentioned below exclude hosting fees and optional maintenance plans.

Minke Whale Business In a Box Package at £99 + VAT

What do you get for that price?

  • One page website
  • 1 x .co.uk domain name
  • 1 x webmail hosted email address

Who is it for?

It is ideal for businesses that already have a full fledged website and are looking for a single page website for a particular product/service or when their website to perform a particular task such as, generate leads. We’d not recommend this as your first website unless you’re really strapped for cash.

This is the perfect website for small businesses that have just one or two services/products to offer. Here’s what you get in this package:

  • 4 page professionally designed website

  • Restricted CMS access

Is this for you?

As mentioned above, this package is good for you if you have just one or two products/services. Of the four pages you get, one is the ‘homepage’, and another is a ‘contact us’ page. That leaves two pages that you can work with. One could be an ‘about us’ page and the other could be a ‘products/services’ page. If you have two products/services, you could have one page for each and skip the dedicated ‘about’ page.

It entirely depends on you. However, our web design Manchester team would be happy to help you along the way should you choose this package, and help you make the most of this package.
