“How much should a website cost?” It’s a fair question, one I get asked time and time again. The infuriating response, “Well… it depends.”
For those that aren’t familiar with how much time and energy goes into building a website, it can often be surprising when the final quote is given. Most digital shops bill an hourly rate of $50 – $200. Websites in turn can take anywhere from 50 hours (for the simplest of simple sites) to more than 1,000 hours to build depending on the functionality of the site. That leaves us with a possible cost in the range of a few thousand to a few hundred thousand dollars; a pretty wide berth.
