The cost of designing a website is highly dependent on your business requirements. Besides budget, you must consider the following:

  • Timeframe: When do you need the website to be rolled out?
  • Complexity: Do you need the website to function like a bicycle, or spaceship?
  • Sophistication: How should the website look and feel? Like a Toyota, or Porsche?

You will be able to better decide after deliberating on these 4 major factors (Budget, Timeframe, Complexity, Sophistication). In Singapore (or anywhere in the world), there are 3 options to choose from when designing a website for your business:

  1. DIY Websites (S$50 – S$200 / month)
    • With vast resources available online, you can DIY anything, including a company website. However, you, or your team needs to be equipped with the technical know-hows (graphic design, html, php coding, javascript, hosting, etc). You will also need to be prepared for trial and error extending timelines.
  2. Freelancer/Students Website Developers (S$500 РS$2,000)
    • Freelance or students usually charge less to create credibility & experience in pursuit of becoming a professional.
  3. Professional Web Design Agency (>S$5,000)
    • Professional web design agencies design and develop websites creatively with credible technical know-how, more importantly, a reputable web design agency puts your business outcomes in the KPIs. Business websites & storefronts care about image & potential customer perception.
