June 01 2014 by Sam Naim

Are you at the stage where developing a website presence is the next step towards business success? Business owners of today are continuing to increase their online presence through the development of dynamic website designs that maximise market flow and growth of their business.

But how much does a website cost to develop?

This all depends on what you are looking for and what exact specifications you want to include on your website. Hence, the first step is asking yourself “what do I want my website to achieve and what functionalities do I need to get there?” The solution might include:

  • Website design and branding
  • Multimedia support
  • Content development
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and traffic generation
  • Mobile device compatibility, and
  • Whether you want to sell your products online using an e-commerce shopping cart like Shopify, which we at Paradise Commerce are experts in utilizing and implementing.

This article provides some helpful tips and an insight into what steps a good website development company takes to help you determine the cost for your website.


Finding the right website development company for your website

Once you have an idea of how you want your business website to look and function, it’s time to find the right website development company that can meet all your criteria for the right price.

It’s important to look for a company that wants to get to know you and your business on a professional level, understand what your business does and how best it can be exposed to the online community for optimum results. 

At Paradise Commerce, we pride ourselves on taking the time to listen, understand and appreciate your goals and objectives for developing your website and take this into consideration when putting together a cost estimate for your website budget.


Continuing to maintain and invest in your website

Many people think that once their website design is complete and has gone live, the work is done and no more time, effort or money needs to go into the website. This isn’t necessarily the case.

As your business starts to grow and evolve, so does your website in order to reflect the success of your business and accommodate the expanding changes and additional services you will be able to implement.

If enhancing your business’s online presence proves to be effective, you may want to consider investing more of your website budget towards ongoing maintenance and support services. It could also be beneficial for your business to seek regular consultation from your website development company, who can help you continue to come up with fresh and exciting ways to grow your business online.
