before you start shopping:

When undergoing a website design (or redesign), start by identifying your goals and objectives with your team. Think about considerations such as:

  • how to best incorporate your brand’s aesthetic
  • interactive visual elements like video, rollovers and animation
  • total number of pages and organization of site pages
  • effective visitor paths & flow through various sections of the site
  • specifying target actions for visitors
  • identifying any special backend functionality your require
  • maintenance and support post-launch
  • marketing the website, SEO and building traffic

Then discuss your overall goals and objectives with potential providers. Generally speaking, there are three types of service providers in the industry: Freelancers/Solo Practitioners, Boutique Designers/Marketing Firms and Advertising Agencies. Below are three general summaries of each type of provider, to help you make sense of what your options are.

Bottom Line: $15,000-$75,000 (depending on the size/scope).


Bottom Line: $100,000+.

These explanations are intended to provide some basic descriptions to help you compare different types of providers. Of course, you may stumble across a brilliant and highly capable freelancer, or a top-level, white-glove large agency at a great rate. But in our experience, somewhere in the middle is the right place for most, assuming you are a small- to medium-sized business, looking to make your mark with a unique, custom-branded web design.
