Pricing

We typically work on projects with budgets between £5,000 and £20,000.  If you’re a small business, start-up or non-profit looking for something cheaper, please try our partner agency, Studio Matas.

 

What factors commonly affect a project budget?

Design approach

An original website design might involve a team of people and an iterative process of planning, content gathering, photo selection, sketching, mockups in Photoshop, changes, sign-off, coding as webpages, another round of changes, testing on different browsers, testing on mobile devices, and more changes.

Or, you can chose a ready-made design from a gallery and have it installed quickly.  It won’t be original or exclusive to you, but with additional customisation and your branding, it can be made unique to a degree.   This approach would cost thousands of pounds less, but comes with limitations and may tie your hands in future.

Or there are in-between approaches. This is why one of our first questions to a new client is, “What kind of budget do you have?”  That way we can focus on appropriate suggestions for you and not waste your time.

Content
Do you have a clear message in mind for the new site? Is your text already written? If not, will it be delivered in one go having been edited and signed off first, or will you give us draft text, in batches, that may be subsequently revised? Do you have high quality, licensed, imagery that we can use, or do you need us to find and purchase images or send you a photographer?

 

Functionality
Is your website simply a ‘brochure site’ with text and imagery, or will it actually do things?  Can your visitors search directories of people or publications?  How will that search facility work?  Can profiles be download as PDFs, or bundled in a briefcase system?  Will you have online registration forms to cut down paperwork in your office?  Do you run events?  How will they be displayed on the website – and can people book online?  If so, what fields will be on the booking form?

 

With any functionality, the devil is in the detail, and so one of our first tasks on the project is to sit down with you and properly plan your functionality.

Project management
Do you have a clear brief, full of detail and locked down, or will you (most likely) come up with new ideas as the project progresses?  How will decisions be taken at your end? How quickly can we expect responses to regular, detailed questions? Will we have one point of contact or several? Are you happy to use online project management tools? Video conferences or onsite meetings?
