How much does a website cost in Singapore?
Web Design : The Singapore Pricing Guideline
In Singapore, we all like to compare price when shopping and the same happens in business as well.
Every now and then some of our customers would gather 3 quotes from different website vendors and ask for help to understand how the quotations could vary from $3,500 to $5,500 to $12,500. The quotations seem too technical and there just isn’t a simple way to compare quotations except for the price factor. And when business owners have no trusted advisor to consult with, they make uninformed decisions and regret eventually. Some even go to the extent of using free website builders to create their websites, unknowing of the hidden costs involved, and usually ending up with a website that is unattractive and yet bearing long-term subscription fees.
So, how much should a small business website cost for a Singapore company?
Let’s dive into the mechanics.
What determines the cost of a website?
The key factors that determine the cost of a website are as follow:
- How complex is the design of your website?
- Is there additional functionality in the website other than basic webpages of information?
- How much content is estimated to be in the website?
- How experienced is the web agency team?
- How much effort does the web agency estimate for developing your website?
On an average of 80-100 hours a professional web designer in Singapore would spend on a website development project, the bottom line would ultimately depend on how much does the web agency cost per hour.
It is important to note that small business owners should seek to work with a web agency that caters to small businesses rather than the top tier agencies. Top tier agencies have sky-high hourly rates and are not priced for small businesses. Smaller agencies like us have reasonable hourly rates, but it is also important to be careful of some agencies that would low-ball the competition in order to win your business, and eventually can’t deliver the job, as they are unable to sustain from the massive workload of non-profitable projects.
How about working with Singapore web design freelancers?
Freelancers can probably quote you a low price since they don’t have anyone to answer to except for him or herself. Freelancers do not bear long term responsibility to you or to your website. They might do a good job or sub-standard job, finish your job real fast or take the whole year, but that’s the risk of working with a freelancer at low cost. There is a saying that goes ‘cheap decisions can be expensive mistakes’.
What is the average web design cost in Singapore?
Based on an average of the website projects we have done, the cost of engaging a web agency like us to design an impressive, fully custom-designed website can be anywhere in the range of $5,000 to $15,000.
