How much does a website cost?

A website should give value and return

The price of a website depends on the complexity and the time it takes to create it. The value depends on the return you want?

As mentioned before, anyone who has time can put together a free or paid website using a Content Management (CMS), but the value is far less than the cost because of the low return. This is due to the limitations of the platform and the similarity to other website that use the same platform.

It is not “how much it will cost?” It is, “how much is it worth?

Coded by hand with care, precision, and optimization

Davenport Website Designs does not use downloaded templates or a CMS such as Wordpress, Wix, or Squarespace to design and create your website. Every aspect of designing a website is hand-coded with precision and optimization aimed for speed, security, and search engines with a return value for the viewer and therefore the business or organization.

At Davenport Website Designs, we consider ourselves neither expensive nor cheap.
‘Expensive’ as in “a high price that is not based on intrinsic worth.”
‘Cheap’ being “poorly made or shoddy, not worth the price.”
These descriptions do not apply to us. We do the work that should be done to maintain quality assurance.

Determining the needs of the website

  • Is it an old website that needs a new look?
  • and many more options

The purpose of the website and the client's goals determine the needs of the website to be succesful which will help answer “how much it will cost?
