It seems like a difficult question to answer but in this article we are going to give you the keys and all the necessary data so that you can know how much it would cost to create a professional self-managed website in 2021, with a blog, adapted to mobiles, tablets and what functions it should have in relation to at your price.
To understand what quantity a web page costs, you've got to go step by step, especially if you're a non-technical user. We are all accustomed to thinking that the cheapest offer is always best and more affordable options are less functional.
Ordering a web site isn't like buying a car or a mobile phone. We are buying a service with which we shall launch our online business. If we use our page for online marketing strategies, advertising campaigns, selling online or getting traffic through search engine optimization it's important that the ads are relevant.
What type of website do I need?
The best recommendation we are able to provide you with is that you don't make a custom website, or rather, from scratch. Years ago that was the only way of working and the costs did not go below 2,000 AUD but now the web pages are made using a free content manager, such as WordPress, Joomla, Prestashop, etc. Using CMS, you can set up a template that greatly reduces the time and effort needed to complete your building project. The template designs we are talking about are premium and professional, they need the most effective design and functions that you can find within the market.
If you utilize a template design and a typical CMS like WordPress your page will never fall short, there are currently over 30,000 free plugins able to download and use. You will also have blog and SEO optimization.
The pages that cost extra money what can they add?
In our case, the costlier pages contribute more hours in design, which makes your page more attractive and professional. Buying a more expensive website will guarantee a greater elaboration in web design, your page will be more attractive, professional and elegant, essential if you have a company or online business.
Many people ask if in WordPress you'll be able to get a custom, personalized web design, as they are saying "no template". Of course, you'll actually create a custom template for your WordPress installation, it's best if you would like something totally tailor-made for you.
Which option is best for me?
If what you want is a simple business design and spend little money, we recommend that you choose our Professional Website. If, on the other hand, you would like to own a more personalized design, that features a certain aesthetic line consistent with the image of your company, we recommend the Advanced Web that's supposed to be more expensive, although we are saying that the most expensive doesn't need to be the most expensive, the foremost expensive thing is to order a cheap website and then it does not serve its purpose.
What is the monthly cost of a website?
A website needs a domain which costs about $10-15 per year. You also need a hosting or accommodation, which consists of a server where your page is going to be running 24 hours each day. If you are interested in something cheap, you can hire a standard unmanaged accommodation, it can cost up-to 50 AUD a month, but you should know that they only take care of the server, not the page, if there's an incident with it you need to solve it yourself.
That is why the most recommended and professional thing is to have a managed accommodation Like the one we offer, we take care of the server and the page, we monitor it so that it does not fall, we monitor security, we take care of it and we give you specific support, this service costs up-to 50 AUD per month, here you have more information. It may seem more expensive to pay but it is not the same, with the cheap price you have only hosting and with that you can also have maintenance, you have more service.
Another way to enjoy a comfortable vacation with your family is to have work done for you, by an experienced company that takes care of all the details while you and your children relax. This service can be quite expensive, but it will defray the costs in wonderful experiences awaiting you when you get back home.
What role does SEO play in all of this?
The answer to this question is pretty simple: it plays a big one. If you choose a WordPress Landing, or Premium landing, don't worry because they can be optimized for SEO which will increase visibility and better leads for your website. What we do strongly advise is that you hire an SEO Specialists. This is like everything; it depends on the professionalism that one or the other can contribute. There is nothing like asking for access to the portfolio to see the work done by one and get a feel of what sets them apart from their competitors.
If you're using a WordPress agency or a web design company, expect to pay more than if you were to hire their services in-person but they can assure your website will be done in a short period of time with efficient and quality that you need and give you support.
Administrative workers are typically paid less than developers. However, they offer a greater guarantee that their work will be done right and finished in time.
However, this is not always the case. We have seen many designers who were contracted to do work for third-parties subcontracting their design work to freelancers or asking agencies selflessly to help with artwork. We have also seen some instances of small marketing agencies taking on internal design work themselves in order to make use of their own talents.
It's important to do your research before self-publishing anything. The price of the website only goes down if you're successful! Your webpage should be professional, have an attractive design that is easy to update and will still deliver the best possible experience for visitor’s decades down the line.
