Usually the answer to “How much will my website cost?”, is “It depends.” That is still true, because each business has unique needs for its website, and it is my goal to only build what you need.
I start by scheduling a phone meeting, so I can talk with you about how your website can serve your business needs. Then I create a detailed cost proposal that itemizes all the expenses through launch as well as hosting and maintenance.
After you have launched your website, your needs may change in the future. If you make structural changes to your website, the cost is a delta over your initial investment. We never have to rebuild the house to add a room.
$250 - $500
The design options allow you to make your website your own. I will work with you to create a tailored look that only your website will have to better represent you and your creative endeavors.
$400 - $2500
I will develop the software based on current technologies, creating secure and lightweight pages that can be easily crawled by the Google and Bing search engines and look good at any screen width.
I then thoroughly test the website on integration and staged servers, running through extensive checklists. After launch, I monitor the analytics to ensure the website is running smoothly.
Hosting and Maintenance
$20 - $50 a month
I provide hosting to all my clients which also includes maintenance. Extensive security practices are woven into everything I do with any public facing software or server. I provide a range of hosting options that allow you to decide how much you want to do yourself (and I provide the training) or how much you would like me to do on your behalf.
Showroom of Websites
Welcome to the 1 Happy Place Showroom! Here you can peruse different types of websites, allowing you to think about which kind of website will best suit you and your business needs and see the approximate cost of such a website.
1 Happy Artist demonstrates a portfolio for an artist. This is an example website for a painter, but the general structure would work for any specialty. The example uses Monet as the artist, so the design of the website flows around his art. The logo, font, and colors chosen fade into the background so as not to detract from his amazing colors.
Cost for this website, approximately $1,900.
1 Happy Page demonstrates an extensive one page website that captures all the information needed for the visitor. It includes a sample portfolio and a contact form. This page allows the user to move down through the contents, rather than clicking to different pages. It has a full custom design to highlight the personality of the individual or business.
