Web Development Pricing Guide
Estimating the cost to develop a website is extremely difficult without gathering intel on what the need may be. The information you see below should be treated as baselines and not quotes. The Space Global traditionally utilizes WordPress for website development.
1-5 Page Websites
This is a small website. Many websites are small. This baseline price assumes that there is minimal database integrations, a standard CMS setup, and website copy is provided.
Typical websites in this category are splash pages, small department sites, countdown pages, and other sites that are meant to simply get a message out. Although this is a baseline, that does not mean the cost is fixed within these bounds. You may come out above or below. You may want just a photo of yourself as the splash page. It would be wrong for us to charge you $3K for that small of a job. All of the sites in this category are mobile, tablet, and desktop responsive to encourage a positive user experience. What drives the cost is the amount of complexity and content your site will have.
5 – 10 Pages Website
This is a medium sized website. Following the theme of the small website, this baseline assumes more integration of data bases, an intermediate strategy on how the CMS is setup, and copy is fully provided with the exception of some stock images.
Sometimes, pricing models based on the number of pages become an inequity. Although we call this category a medium sized website, each page can simply have 1 photo on each page. If a small sized site that has “More” content than the 10 page site with 1 photo on each page, does that still mean the site is considered small? We must assume that as your pages increase the content and integration of your external data bases and CMS also increases. All of the sites in this category are mobile, tablet, and desktop responsive to encourage a positive user experience. What drives the cost is the amount of complexity and content your site will have.
A Site with A LOT of content. 15+ pages
This is a large website. This site has blogs, possibly ads, a robust CMS, an advanced integration of databases, and other features. Usually, this kind of site requires a few weeks of meetings before the entire scope is outlined.
