First, a moment to allow better understanding of the standard costs of web design:
This site was designed from scratch without a 'template'. This site is rather elegant without being very personal ~ business like for the most part. The site contains multiple integrated code styles which took about 80 hours to build. It includes 22 pages, there are over (6,000) lines of code, 60 formatted photos, and we had to write the copy as well!
Web development, graphic design, and professional sales copy specialists tend to get paid $150 to $250 per day, depending on their experience. If you are willing to dig a little, you will find that this is standard for the industry. Furthermore, mega-sites like Yahoo and Google and MSN have many full-time employees, each making $150 to $250 per day; so they spend thousands of dollars every day just to keep their sites up to speed.
What this amounts to is that this site cost about $2000 to build. Using this fact as a reference, your complete site (depending on the size) should cost from $1000 to $3000 to build regardless of who does the work for you.
To maintain a fairness regarding pricing, we have a standardized list we use as a guide (rather than gouge you for whatever we could get.) We are also open to discounting with regard to the various shortcuts available. For example, if you are interested in a custom site generated through a site builder like WordPress or Blogger, your cost would be less due to the speed at which this can be accomplished. We have built some of these sites in a single day!
Your project will usually get completed in one to two weeks (depending on its size.) Furthermore, when we quote you a price, we will stick to it ... even if we end up with cost overruns. And in order to keep everyone busy without compromising our timetable, we will only take on 3 to 5 overlapping projects at a time.
