  1. Copywriting – you will need to provide your initial text content, which will often evolve and reshape itself throughout the project. It’s advised that you get a professional copywriter to help with this as this will produce the best results.
  2. Photography – It’s important to supply a high-quality set of images or image library for web projects. If you don’t have a photographer on hand I can help with the purchase of relevant stock photography
  3. SEO – You will need to commission an SEO expert if you want your website optimised for higher rankings in search engines. This can be a lengthy and expensive process so make sure you budget for it if it’s necessary for your product or service.
  4. Ongoing maintenance – see my website maintenance plans if you wish to have ongoing support after your website is live



The price of a website design/development project can vary greatly depending on its complexity. As a general rule, basic small-business information websites start at $2500.

It’s important to think of your website design as an investment for your business or company, with the intent to appeal to as far-reaching audience as possible for greater conversions and/or impact. Of course not everyone has a lot to invest to begin with – nor do they need all the bells and whistles. But in some circumstances – as with any investment – the higher your budget, the more overall value you will have delivered in content strategy & optimisation, design & user experience. So higher investment = higher return.
