Among numerous social media platforms, it’s hard to grasp the importance of a well designed website for your business. Some businesses believe that their social media profiles provide all the information potential customers need, which is not entirely accurate. Social media platforms are great for offering visibility but websites will serve as the central hub for a business. This is the space where your audience can get a deeper understanding of your business and discover how your products or services can benefit them. It is the turning point in the customer journey, taking visitors towards the next phase for making a purchase, contacting your business or scheduling a service.

What type of website do you need?

If you are thinking of creating a website for your business, it is essential that you determine the type of website that best suits your business needs and goals. Some common website types are: 

Business/Service Provider Websites

which are aimed to inform potential customers about your business and invite them to engage with your services. These types of websites will include basic website pages along with integration of booking/scheduling tools.

Portfolio Websites

to showcase your work, your expertise and highlight your unique selling points, which will include image/media gallery, bio page, service page etc.

Blog Websites

will allow you to educate and inform your audience and establish yourself as a reputed source in your field. There would be article pages, catalogs, search functionality, categorization and tagging, etc.

Event Websites

Landing Pages

 are aimed to guide visitors or potential customers to take a specific action as part of a broader marketing campaign. Call-To-Action buttons, sign-up function, booking tools, etc. would be included to help achieve the goal.

E-Commerce Website

help sell and promote products online. There will be a product gallery, secure checkout, category pages, contact page, user dashboard, live chat, etc. to accomplish the successful sale of the intended product.

How much does it cost to create a website for your business?

When it comes to the cost of a website, it is totally dependent on the amount of work involved based on the size and complexity of the website you need.

A basic 5 page website which includes essential pages like the homepage, services/product page, contact page, etc. These types of websites involve basic customization mostly using existing templates and straightforward design elements. On the other hand, a more complex website with 20 pages and advanced features, coding, and detailed and extensive customization will cost you a lot more. A few factors that would contribute to cost determination are:

Custom Designing

websites to match your brand requires more time and expertise.

Content creation

especially on a larger scale and with multimedia elements will need careful organization and integration.

Functionalities

such as e-commerce systems, membership portals, user dashboards, etc. demand advanced programming.

Search Engine Optimization

 involves ongoing and careful planning and efforts

Increased interactivity

by implementing features like user forums, live chat, or forms adds to the complexity of the website.

Additional expenses would include domain name and hosting fees, website hosting, third-part app costs, subscription costs, payment processing fees, on-going website maintenance fees, etc.

Inorder to make an informed decision about the scope of your website project, you must first consider factors such as your goals, your audience, your budget, etc. and understand the link between complexity, cost and your business needs. This will allow you to align your goals smoothly without unnecessary complications or expenses.
