Many of the most common questions about mobile web design revolve around mobile web design prices, and if this describes the search that you’ve recently entered into a search engine, then you’ll probably have found that it’s hard to get a straight answer.
There are several key reasons for this, firstly since all web developers set their own prices, each valuing their service differently to their rivals, but also because all websites require different levels of work, and will be of varying sizes. All of this noted, though, it is still very frustrating that it can be so difficult to get such a straightforward – and important – question answered.
In this short blog post, we’ll be covering all of the basics for costing a mobile website, as well as considering what big variables need to be considered.
First off, let’s take a look at the cost of building a completely simple destination website. By this what we mean is a website of a handful of pages, offering information and perhaps some photos or videos, but otherwise without any key functionality. A basic site like this is common for businesses who do most of their trade face to face, whether that is a restaurant or a place of retail. A mobile site with this kind of spec will usually be around a guide price of $500 or $600.
For a slightly larger or more complex website which builds upon the basic tier website explained above, you should expect to pay around $1000. The higher cost will be made up by more web pages, as well as any other additional features.
As your site plan develops, with large numbers of pages, and additional features such as e-commerce, the cost of the website can quickly rise. A large website in basic form is attainable from around $1500.
