Your Web Design Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank

It’s 2018 and that means your website shouldn’t look like it was created in 2015. Web design trends change fast and if you haven’t updated your website in a few years, the chances are, it’s outdated, tired and lacking the pizzazz that your customers desire on the Web today. However, for many companies, the first thought that comes to mind when they think of web design is the cost. It’s true that redesigning, or designing, a website can get expensive. But if you plan for it correctly, web design doesn’t have to leave you high and dry. Here’s what you need to know.

Determine the Right Type of Website – there are several types of websites to choose from, including e-commerce, simple storefronts, portfolios and even complex design. You need to understand what each of these offers and which one best fits your business’s needs. The price will vary for each type so choose one that fits your price range in order to stay within budget.

Choose Your Domain – next up, you have to choose the right domain name and then purchase the rights to that name. Choosing a domain name is extremely important. This is how people will find you and it will go a long ways in determining how people identify your business and your brand. It’s always better to choose shorter domain names and avoid terms that could be confusing, mistaken, or misspelled. Find the best name you can that fits your budget.

The Hostess With Mostest – now, it’s time to choose your host. Hosting fees can vary widely depending on the size and breadth of your site. Prices can range from as little as $10 a month all the way up to several hundred dollars a month, so there is a price range for every budget.

Choose the Design Template – thankfully, these days you can choose your design template instead of building one from scratch. There are literally thousands to choose from, ranging from free to $1,000 or more. Again, you have a wide range of choices in every budget range, so choose the one that best matches your style and budget.

Updates and Maintenance – lastly, you need to consider your maintenance and update fees. Some of these come with the template you choose and others will be an additional cost. It depends on what template you start with and the changing needs of your business as it grows.
