If you are in the market for a new website, one of the first things you need to know before you start planning your online presence is how much will it cost to build this new website.
To accurately get an estimate of cost, you first have to consider what you want your website to do. For example:
- Attract new customers
- Increase sales
- Sell items online
- Collect donations
- Promote an event
- Generate new leads
Once you know what you want your website to do, then you can start brainstorming what your visitors will want to see when they land on your site. Put yourself in their shoes: 1. What would they be searching to find your business online? How would you want to organize the information and pages to quickly and easily find information if you were the visitor?
Then you can start compiling your web work flow. Starting with the homepage, write down all the pages you think you will need. For example, a basic site has: Home, Product Pages, About and Contact. The number of product pages can vary from 1 to 1,000. In the early stages, this can feel like a moving target, so don’t get too concerned if you don’t nail this down right away.
Once you have a good idea of what you are looking for in your website, you are ready to find a company that is equipped to handle your needs. Go with a reputable company that listens to your needs, instead of trying to fit you in a box. Check their portfolio for examples of site you like, and reference those when you talk about your website. Also check their site for testimonials from their customers.
