We help you realize big projects or just make your online presence a little bit more beautiful one small step at a time - let us know in case you want to launch your very own online shop or just change up some colors for your existing site, at email@example.com
We'll crunch the input and send you a human answer on business days from Nine to Five.
What's the average cost of development?
An average development cost per web site is 1600€+VAT and for an online store 2400€+VAT. Some one-pagers (where you just scroll through some slides) are definitely cheaper and some web shops with lots of customization (for example with lot's of custom forms and a custom administration interface to help content managers and administrators do their work more effectively) will come with a heavier price tag. It is always possible to start small and keep adding functionality in the future - it's just wise to have a general plan already in the beginning, so all would fit together in the end, without having to bin previous work.
- CHOOSING A NAME
First up you'll need a memorable and catchy name and then you should check if this one is still available also as a domain name / web address - a new domain name can cost around 9€-30€ a year depending on the string after the dot: the well-known ones like .com, .eu will cost less, but they have far fewer domain names still available (any string that comes before the final dot) and delegated strings like .express, .photos and others will be on the costlier side of the spectrum
- PLATFORM FEES AND HOSTING
These days websites and shops are not written completely from scraps - rather a platform is used, that allows to to put the site together like a Lego from ready-made solutions and provides the highest security standards and regular updates and therefore keeps the development and running costs low.
Make sure to compare the pros and cons of each platform before choosing one - some have a monthly fee or take a percentage of all your sales, while others are free to use, but you'll need a hosting space (this is cheap these days - check out our prices, which start at 3.99€, VAT included, a month!), sometimes professional help to keep things running smoothly and additional functionality (that is not covered by the platform itself) will cost you extra too: adding an event calendar or custom contact form normally doesn't require much development effort as in most cases these can be solved with ready-made plugins - these plugins oftentimes come with a one-time purchase fee (a calendar app, a fancy picture carousel and other simpler things will set you back about 30€+VAT), yet some things might require subscriptions (functionality for booking accommodation or registering to events), that come with separate monthly or yearly fees (oftentimes also around 30€+VAT).
Please read up on a couple of those comparisons and find out which is the right one for you:
- BRANDING / DESIGN:
Please consider if you want a bespoke design (a designer creates a unique look and branding for your web site - this costs oftentimes just as much as the coding/development part as it is just as time-consuming work, on average 1600-2400€+VAT) or it's sufficient to use a ready made template, with some minor adjustments (the prices for a template range oftentimes from 20-75€).
Check out these sites, to get inspired on ready-made templates (please consider only responsive templates - these sites will provide a nice user experience also on smartphones and tablets - that's how folks are using the internet these days):
You as the customer will be responsible for any content on the site. Please consider contacting professional help in case you need help with something:
- Professional pictures: a web page just doesn't look professional without professional pictures - consider using stock images and/or contact a professional photographer to get beautiful pictures of your products, coworkers, locations, etc. that you want to display on your site
- Engaging text - consider contacting a copywriter in case you need help to formulate engaging articles - normally the prices here are the same as for the design and development process - 40€ an hour + VAT
- Translations - make sure your customers can understand you by adding translations for those who don't speak English
- CHANGING YOUR MIND is totally OK
That's the normal during and after any project. Just please keep in mind, that additional requests (also things that you just forgot to specify or mention at first) during or after the project were not included in the initial agreed price - we will agree any extra charges with you before starting to work on your new ideas. Please just keep in mind, that we will bill all the hours of work that we put into the project on your request - if you happen to want to abandon an idea in mid-progress, then we'll still bill you for the amount of work already completed. In case we make a mistake (these things may happen!) then we'll correct them of course free of charge during the project and after the handover (for up to 6 months)
