Finding fair mobile web design prices


One of the most frustrating things about mobile web design prices is that it’s so hard to find a general guideline. With all developers setting their own prices, and the transformations that take place in the industry over time, it can be impossible to work out what a web design should cost.

Every website is different, and although some basic costs will remain constant, as for quantity of web pages and so on, there are tonnes of individual features which may or may not be applicable for your site. In this post, we try to give a general breakdown of design prices for small, medium, and large websites.

Small websites
A small website describes any site made up of just a handful of pages (up to around a dozen). These sites are likely to be used primarily as a destination site, offering some key info, images, contact details and the likes. A small website is unlikely to be used for selling, and will more or less take the role of an online ad for your website. This type of site is especially common for businesses doing trade face to face who want to offer some brand info online. For this type of website, set yourself a budget of between $500 and $1000.

Medium websites
A medium website here refers to any site which offers more pages than the smaller websites described above, with the additional of some extra features. These might include map services, instant call buttons, e-commerce, and a range of design features that you might wish to add to give your site the edge. A medium site can either have many pages while being otherwise very simple or else it might be smaller but with more expensive features added. For a website like this consider a price range of around $800 to $1500.

Large websites
A large website consists of 20 or more pages, with the addition of the extras mentioned above. There is no limit to website size, of course, and this can cost anything from $1500 upwards.
