The C-Word: How Much Will a New Website Cost?
Posted on 21st November 2021
We get asked a lot of things by business owners in Hull and East Yorkshire. These can range from how to improve the Google ranking of their website to the best way to engage new customers and convert clicks into custom.
Still, the question that we’re asked most often is why our prices are so low? After all, doesn’t cheap automatically mean poor quality?
We totally understand that this may cross your mind, so to put it at ease we’d like to explain why our prices are lower than those of other website design agencies in Hull and also why we’re the right choice for your business.
Selecting the right web company to work with
Choosing the right web agency to work with is a fundamental first step. We wrote about this in a blog post a few years ago (8 things to consider before you choose a web company).
We still stand by everything we said then and it’s worth revisiting and having a read if you’re looking for the best fit for your business.
We’ve been designing awesome websites for a long time (over 30+ years experience in websites, design and marketing). We’ve had teams of developers, tried all the content management platforms and we’ve seen trends come and go.
Over the years we’ve listened to our clients and the one thing that we heard time and time again from people was the frustration that their websites weren’t easy to edit or that they struggled to access making changes themselves.
By giving you (the client) full access to edit your own website, backed up with help and support from us, we’ve aimed to take that headache away.
A perfectly formed business model
There are It’seeze businesses all around the UK, with us (Nic, Sarah and Liv) focussed on supporting businesses in the Hull, Beverley and East Yorkshire area. Optimisation doesn’t just apply to our websites, as the wider It’seeze business structure has also been sculpted to perfection.
This means that when you choose us as your web design agency, you’re benefitting from a well-oiled machine that’s focused on results.
No hiccups, no shortfalls, no faffing about – just a fast, smooth and 100% dedicated web design service.
We’ve streamlined the design and build phases for everyone involved without compromising on detail. You won’t see initial designs or wireframes, however our detailed website brief makes sure we cover all the bases when we look to create your new site. If the brief is correct, we can pretty much guarantee that the end result will be exactly what’s required (it’s worked so far for hundreds of our clients).
A faster process allows us to create websites in a shorter time, so it’s only fair that we pass these savings on to you.
Websites don’t have to cost the earth
There. We said it. And it’s true.
The design, build and ongoing maintenance of a website simply doesn’t have to go into the thousands. The trick is to find a web design agency that’s competitively priced but also knows its onions, as you want to ensure that you’re getting effective and affordable rather than cheap and nasty.
Many of our clients go for a website that starts from either £350* (Plus), £450* (Max) or £600* (Shop) and then simply pay an affordable monthly price plan to cover the key services you need for your website.
The Plus Package is often a great starting point for new businesses, as it gives you up to five custom-designed webpages. However, if you’re serious about growing your business, our multi-page, multi-feature Max Package is far and away our most popular option. If you need to add online purchases, we also have a Shop Package too if you're looking to sell online.
Don’t forget, you can always upgrade (or even downgrade) your it’seeze website package as your business requirements change.
Our pricing has been fine-tuned to cover everything you need today, tomorrow and for many years to come. From domains and email through to super-fast hosting, SSL certificate and tech updates, we make sure all the key services you need for your website are covered in one place.
As part of this we’re always here to offer advice and support, but when it comes to other forms of digital marketing you’ll be doing the heavy lifting yourself.
Structured pricing – you get out what you put in…
There are 2 ways we tend to work with our clients, either you can supply all the content for your website or we can provide an enhanced package and handle everything for you.
If you have plenty of time as well as the skills required to write the text for your site and source images, you can create the content yourself and send it to us ready for inclusion on the website. This can be a cost-effective way to get your website up and running.
If this isn’t something you’re comfortable with, we have plenty of options available.
There are a lot of things to consider when writing text that engages, sells or converts. Producing images that are high quality and relevant to your business may also require a professional.
Our ‘done-for-you’ packages can include outstanding photography and video, as well as professional copywriting for webpages, case studies and regular blog posts.
We’ve teamed up with likeminded content specialists right here in Hull and East Yorkshire who agree that businesses shouldn’t have to pay through the nose for excellent digital content and versatile online marketing platforms.
This service does of course come with an additional cost that’s tailored to your exact needs, though it still ends up being much cheaper overall than most typical web agencies.
We know our strengths (and our weaknesses)
While we can design anything (within reason) and also offer a wide range of extra development services to suit your business, if you need a lot of bespoke development work that’s going to tie up our resources to produce, we may not be the best fit for you.
If that’s what you need, there are LOTS of great web design agencies in Hull who we can point you in the direction of or even make introductions for you. Just ask us, we’re happy to help!
