There is no point in trying to allocate a budget for your web design unless you have a firm idea of what it is you want your site to do. If all you are looking for is a blog site through which you can update people about your hobbies or family then you can get everything you need through a free to use site such as WordPress or Blogger. However, if you are trying to design a website to boost your business or raise awareness for a charity or other organisation you will need more features than the free sites can offer, and yes, you will need to decide on a budget.
Many people approach web design with the belief that they can throw just about anything they like at the page and it will be fine. The belief that just because they have a page on the internet with details of their business on it, or even a link to their store, that people will come flocking to their site in order to buy is ridiculous. There is a great deal of thought, effort and hard work that goes in to designing a site that firstly will get the attention of internet users, make them want to click through to look at your page and then convert those clicks into sales. All of this takes a great deal of planning by those who are designing the page before they even set about putting elements of the pages together.
So when it comes time for you to take your small business onto the internet how do you go about it? You know that you have a good product, the price is right, the packaging is right and you are ticking over with enough local orders so that the business pays for itself, but what you really want is for the business to make a profit. This means that you are going to have to seriously increase your number of orders. You need to come up with a webpage that highlights all that is good about your products and why people should choose yours over everything else that is available. This is the part that eats up your budget, finding someone that can do all of this for you. There is no point blowing the whole budget on an all singing all dancing design if it is not going to result in an increase in sales.
Buying a Budget Package
When you are negotiating the price for your web design you need to also make sure that aside from the design of the site the company you choose are also going to include some search engine optimization into the package, if they don’t your fabulous new site will never get noticed either by the public or by the search engines, meaning you will have wasted your money. Go for a budget package that has everything you need thrown in. as your business improves you can always go back for a redesign later.
