This is a question that everyone has and an answer everyone ready to launch a website needs to know.
Unfortunately, it’s a question your web designer will not be able to answer in the initial conversation. In fact, it may take a few conversations. When we meet with a new client and try to answer this question, we always explain that no two websites are ever the same. They vary according to size, complexity and client requirements, and like our customized website designs, no website quote we provide is ever exactly the same.
We basically need to know your intentions for your site and answers to numerous questions so that we get an understanding of how complicated it might be, how time consuming it might be, how much site content will be provided, what type of banner would you like, identify colours and fonts, determine how many applications are required, how many pages, how many graphics/images, will social media be incorporated etc. Without this information, trying to give an accurate quote would be impossible. And, without this information it would be impossible to create a design consistent with the client’s vision.
Most website designers, including Simply Effective, will ask for an initial deposit fee in order to open the project once the website parameters have been discussed and a mock-up proposal has been approved and given the go-ahead by the client.
The approximate time frame for a WordPress site customization/installation, i.e., up to 25 pages, can be completed in 20 – 25 business days, providing ALL pertinent site content (including text, images, Word docs/Pdfs, external links, including social media links, etc.) and account information (i.e., user names & passwords) is supplied and received from the client within the time frame/start date agreed upon.
