Web design and web development go hand in hand when designing a new website. The design aspect is more about the overall look of the site whereas development covers mostly the back-end functionality, the part your visitors don’t see. We like to say it’s takes a lot of work on a website to make it look easy and functional.
Web Development Costs
Web Development Costs play a very big role how a finished site looks. Some top web design companies have a set budget while other don’t care and just want the best responsive website that money has to buy. There is server costs to consider and will have to be looked at if a site has a lot of traffic. An eCommerce site will need an SSL certificate for security purposes which adds to the cost as well as developing a fully functioning shopping cart and CMS login area adds to the cost if a company wants to sell products.
Web Management Services
So there are many factors to consider when developing a website. The domain name is usually minimal (around $25/year), the hosting is average and about $120/per year, and the maintenance and web management services are usually about $100-200/month if you are busy and need someone to look after your website.
Web management includes the website theme updates, plugins, and other content requirements, as well as affordable SEO services and Social Media Management and creation services. Talk it over with your web developer to make sure you are on the same page.
Once the website is finished and it looks awesome, then discuss how to get found in search engines, how to connect your social media channels to your website, how to create reviews, get citations, press release services, and testimonial creation services to build up brand trust on the web. This is a must if you wish to compete locally or globally within your chosen market for your keywords.
