Website Design Quote

I recently wrote and article on Website design pricing and discussed the difference between a $1000 and a $10,000 Websites. Have a read through that before this.

We all know we get what you pay for. In this article I am going to talk about another factor that affects a LOT when getting a Website Design in Australia. Is the WHO. Who designs your website.

There are 6 type of Website Designers in Australia;

1. The web designer. (The bedroom designer. Im not being rude here)

  • The part-time freelancer has a full-time job and only designs websites as a hobby to earn some extra cash.

  • They are great if you want a budget website.

  • Unfortunately, due to part time freelancers having a full-time job, getting a hold of him during working hours is nearly impossible. Also, you need not have a solid deadline due to their full-time work schedules.

  • Your overall experience & happiness would be around : 5/10.

  • Website design prices could vary from $200 – $900.

2. The offshore company

  • Here, you source an overseas firm for you web design needs. One advantage of such a company is that you will save costs. This is due to the lower living costs in most of the offshore firms.

  • Cultural and language barriers that may pose communication challenges. Due to such problems, you might be forced to micro manage the project.

  • Your overall experience & happiness would be around : 6/10.

  • Website design prices could vary from $200 – $3000 depending on the project.

3. Design Only

  • These are the designers who will only come up with a concept, then hand it over to the developer to code. An advantage of a design only person and a developer means that their skills will complement each other. You will end up having a product that been perfected by two people.

  • One disadvantage is that the designer might give an excellent concept to a not so reputable developer, who might end up doing a shoddy job. So it can be hard to control how your project turns our. 

  • Your overall experience & happiness would be around : 6/10.

  • Website design prices could vary from $1000 – $5000.

4. Full-Time Freelancer

  • They are lower in costs as compared to small web studios. Go for the full-time freelancer if you have a fixed budget.

  • Most of the Full-Time freelancers have limited resources as compared to small web studios, meaning you might need to wait for some time before you have your final product.

  • Your overall experience & happiness would be around : 5/10.

  • Website design prices could vary from $1500 – $6000.

5. The Small Web Studio  <- This is us!

  • This is usually a small team of developers, designers and project managers who have an array of web design skills. With such a small team comprised of people with a range of complementary skills, you are assured of an excellent product. Turn around will be faster, and you are guaranteed of value for your money. They are also cheaper than creative agencies because they do one thing which is Website Designing.

  • When you choose a small agency, you will have developers & designers working on your product and a project manager whose responsibility will be to communicate with you until they get the project exactly the way you want.

  • Also with small Web Studio you are looking at building a long lasting relationship. Such a relationship is crucial as you grow because the Website needs to grow with your business.
