Clients often ask how much it would cost to design a new website. It’s often difficult to come up with a realistic estimate because usually as the website is being developed, many aspects that weren’t thought of before are suddenly added. Therefore the following is a general guideline only. All estimates are based on client providing content to enter into website, images, graphics/logos. Repeated modifications to website does adjust the cost as it does affect the time to complete the website. (Think of this as you would a hiring a painter; changing your mind on the wall colour after painting the walls does add additional work for the painter, therefore additional cost.)
