If you're looking for a site to be built, one of the most important questions is probably, "how much will it cost?"
My answer is usually, "how much do you want it to cost?" What do I mean by this?
Why I Don't Offer Prices
The trouble is that creating a bespoke website is almost always a voyage into the unknown. From a developer's point of view there are always pieces of functionality that could be put together in a matter of minutes (if it's already available in the public domain) or I could spend several day's work building it from scratch. This is difficult to price! But more significant is that even if you want a website, it's difficult to know at the beginning how you'd like it to turn out.
As a result, I try not to offer fixed prices but instead offer a way of managing the costs of building a complex website on an ongoing basis. The principle is that I will gradually build your site, starting with the most important things. All along the way you will be able to see your site grow, and choose the direction in which it is growing. We work together the whole way. There will come a point where you are satisfied with what you have. This process is part of a development approach known as 'agile development' and I explain more about how I use it in my how I work page.
Okay, Some Figures
But you came here to get some figures. As a very rough guide, if you want a bespoke website with a content management system then you're looking at between £1,000 and £10,000.
Or you can hire me out for my time: £40 an hour.
