Tips for Affordable Website Design

Jackie L.

About 75% of people get their first impression of a business on how their website looks.  You are probably thinking about your business website design.  There are a lot of questions that come up when you venture into website design.  Sometimes, it’s a few too many questions and can get overwhelming for beginning business owners.  When we have very little budget to start on, we want to do the best we can on our own.

Let’s look at a few affordable website design options.

How much does it cost to design a website?

The cost to website design can vary from $100-$15,000, depending on what you need done and how extensive you need the design.  If you want the cheapest option, you can build a simple website on your own.  Depending on what type of website design you are needing for your business, there are many options in a website host.  All you need to do is pick a template and start designing! 

How can I start designing my website?

The first place to start with an affordable website design is to come up with a goal.  Are you selling products?  Featuring a blog?  Once you decide the goal, it will be easier to go down the list of how to design your website.  Knowing the goal you have for your website will make it easier to pick your website host.  After this, you pick brand colors, create a simple logo, create the menu, and start working with available templates.

Depending on your website host, check in with customer service if you run into any trouble.

Do I need to know coding to design a website?

Of course not!  If you do this yourself and you are a coder, you will have a lot more options in what you can do.  However, since most business owners have little to no experience in coding, this is not a skill that will greatly hold you back.  As said before, there are many website hosts who have fabulous templates that can easily be redesigned to look sleek and professional.  

How long does it take to design a website?

The biggest question of all!  When you hire a professional and want a professional designed website, it can take anywhere from 4-6 months.  That’s a lot of time for a website.  If you need a website to be up and running quickly with little fuss and muss, you can do the above and have it ready in less than a month.  The time between conception and finished website can vary depending on the time you allocate to building it.

Affordable website design can easily be done on your own for very little to no budget.  The most important thing to guarantee website designing success is to have a plan before you jump in.  That way, you are saving time, energy, and money for other areas of your business.  Once you have a bigger budget, you can grow your website further!
