We’ve recently been looking at our prices with a view to making sure we are competitive against other web design companies both locally to us in Sussex and throughout the UK. We’re pleased to say our prices have not risen in the last two years and if anything we’ve cut them slightly as we started to offer completely free hosting to all new customers in the first year saving up to £300 on the initial price of setting up a website.
What we analysed to get our findings
To see how we compared to the competition we took a sample of the top 20 web design companies that come up in searches on Google both locally to us in Sussex and throughout the UK. We then looked at the prices advertised (not all had them unfortunately but most did) for a simple 5 page website, a fully content managed website and an e commerce store. All with bespoke designs and not using any templates which are usually pretty poor quality.
Average Web Design Prices Compared to Ours
When we looked at each of the three types of site that are most commonly asked for by our clients we were pleasantly surprised to find we came out on top across the board compared to the averages. We’re not the cheapest in all cases but we were always very close to the best prices around.
A full content managed site (e.g WordPress) – Average Price £1137 – Our Price = £995 + FREE hosting
Bespoke e commerce store with unlimited products = Average Price £1683 – Our Price = £1600 + FREE hosting
These prices are based on a standard site without lots of complex customisation and with content managed sites the price can vary a lot so we’ve looked at the “prices from” where they are quoted to give the most accurate comparison.
In summary it’s clear we are competitive which was the goal of this exercise so if your decision is based on price when choosing a web design company you can rest assured we’re competitive. If your decision is based on quality of work and service then take a look at our web design portfolio and give us a call. We’ll be happy to discuss your project with you for free and give you as many clients to talk to for recommendations as you like.
