This is a commonly asked question and, unfortunately, there is not one particular answer.
As with any project, the cost of a website depends on your requirements. A basic solution may consist of the purchase and installation of a pre-made WordPress template, with your content added. A custom web solution would utilize our proprietary Content Management System (CMS) and answer the needs of a complex, database driven solution.
At 3-Keys Communications, we work with you to discover your needs and offer the best website solution for your budget. Keep in mind that the cheapest option may not necessarily fit your needs and could require a complete overhaul within the next 12-18 months – rather than saving you money it could cost you more! We’ll help you think through your options and strategize to create the optimal site for you.
A basic custom website can range in price from $1,000 – $3,000 and more complex websites can range from $10,000 – $100,000+.
There are many companies that offer template websites allowing you to drop in your logo and content for a low monthly fee or low cost. While these seem like cost-effective solutions, make sure to keep in mind your website goals. I know several businesses who have taken this route and become frustrated with the lack of control they have on their own website because they used a template they couldn’t control.
Elements that affect the costs and development of a website include:
E-Commerce / Online Store
Search Engine Optimization (site structure and content)
Local Search Integration
Databases of Products
Automated Marketing Systems
Product Order & Distribution Tracking
Quickbooks Payment & Inventory Integration
