Website development costs can vary widely, depending on your specific needs and features to be developed. We know you’re looking for guidance, so below are some general figures to use as a starting point for discussion.

We build long-term relationships with our customers, and most of them partner with us long after the completion of their initial website project as they understand successful websites are not “one and done” projects. To be effective, a website requires ongoing evaluation, care, improvements, and maintenance (much like a car or a house).
Our average our customers invest $3,500 to $6,000 annually on optimising, growing, and continually improving their online presences. Through our hosting and maintenance plans, many also invest $950 to $1,500 to update their site software and prevent security problems throughout the year.
Some of our customers don’t have extensive monthly needs. They simply come to us for updates and maintenance on an as-needed basis (sometimes quarterly, sometimes once a year). In these instances, we provide an upfront cost estimate to complete the work – no ongoing commitment is required.
Whenever possible we’ll provide you with a cost estimate or quote prior to beginning your work, so you’ll have a clear understanding of costs up front.
However, on some occasions, there’s no getting around billing on an hourly basis (e.g.: simple website updates, small amounts of research, etc.) There is a 15-minute minimum charge for hourly work.
Work that is often billed hourly includes:
While we prefer to have sufficient advance notice for any jobs, we understand there are times when a job simply needs to be done asap.
If you have an urgent web job which needs our immediate attention, we are here to help. We just ask for your understanding that accommodating your tight deadline will require us to rearrange our schedule and extend our work hours. For these reasons, rush work incurs the following additional charges.
We provide discounted rates to Non-profit organisations. From time to time, we may select ‘pro-bono’ project to work on free of charge. Typically these are for Non-profit organisations or sponsorship.
Whether it’s bespoke custom website development, setting up your online store or a simple website, we can provide tailored website solutions to fit most budgets. Get in touch with us to discuss your website project, or read about the other web design services we offer.
